hands down my favorite place to shop for dresses is mango! if you’ve followed me for a while, you know my love for the spanish-based company runs deep and in thinking about filling my wardrobe with flowy floral fabrics for spring/summer, there was no question which website i thought to peruse first!
on the hunt for something to wear for our professional photos commemorating the twins’ first birthday, i stumbled upon this floral number with adorable puffed sleeves. i ordered it (along with this smocked gingham midi that i plan on wearing tomorrow for the party!) and when it arrived, it exceeded all expectations.
not to be hyperbolic, but this dress may just be one of the most flattering dresses i’ve ever worn. the v-neck is deep without being too revealing, the smocked sleeve detail gives it just enough femininity without being juvenile, the floral print is classic without being too cutesy, and the tie-waist (which i tied in the back) helps achieve the perfect silhouette. it’s flowy yet also manages to show off your shape. did i also mention it’s under $60?
since i knew we’d be traipsing through some wildflowers/brush to get to our photoshoot location, i opted for my trusty cowboy boots as my shoe of choice. it felt like a full-circle moment as i also wore them for our maternity shoot over a year prior (cue the single tear).
as we approach wedding season/graduation season/summer overall, there will be many occasions to sport the perfect floral frock. i’ve rounded up my favorites (many from mango, of course) all under $100!
