I feel like a HOT mom today! Ha! I don’t care if that sounds vain to say and really it shouldn’t! We should empower ourselves and be proud to say we are HOT! Heck, forget the mom title, I just feel good! To be completely honest, it’s been a really long time since I’ve put on an outfit and instantly felt really good about myself. Don’t get me wrong, I’m learning to love and except myself in my body more and more every single day. But ever since I had Riley, my body just isn’t the same. And even though I’m constantly reminding myself that my body looks the way it does because I gave birth to two beautiful children, it’s not always so easy not to beat yourself up a little bit. But today when I put on this sweater dress I just felt good! I think part of it is because I’ve gone to yoga three times in the last week. I can’t even tell you the last time I’ve exercised three times in one week. Heck I can’t even tell you the last time I exercised at all! Ha! So I think doing something good for my body is making me feel better. But I also have to give credit to this insanely flattering sweater dress!
I almost didn’t buy this dress because let’s be real, it’s a little bit more expensive than I usually like to spend on clothes. But I thought I’d give it a shot. Mostly because I just really liked the bell sleeves and wanted to see what it would look like. I’m so glad I took a chance on it because I just love this dress. It is so soft and the beautiful quality is obvious from the moment you put it on. I also think that some sweater dresses can make you look boxy if they are too loose – depending on the cut. But the waist tie that comes with the dress hits my body at the perfect spot and gives me shape while still hiding the parts of my midsection that I’m not comfortable with. If you can swing spending a little bit more on a dress, I couldn’t recommend this one more! And it’s the perfect piece to transition from winter to spring.
Because I live in SoCal, I was able to wear it with these cute ankle booties. These are the exact booties that I’m wearing but in a different color. But I found a super similar pair for a great price here. And if you don’t live in a warmer climate, you could easily wear this with tights and booties. Or even an over-the-knee boot. I highly recommend these over-the-knee boots that I just bought from Chinese Laundry. I blogged about them a couple days ago and they are the best!
To accessorize the look I’m wearing a couple rings from my jewelry line with Emerald Duv. You’ll probably notice I wear the stacked rings all the time because they’re just a great basic to wear with other rings without feeling like you have too much jewelry on. And I’m wearing the rose ring from my collection. If you have any friends that are made your Bachelor fans this ring would be a great gift for them! There’s also a rose necklace and bracelet if you want a complete set!
And I’ll link the bag I’m carrying here as well. It’s on sale for 50% off right now so it’s a great bag to snatch up if you want something that can be carried from day to night seamlessly.
Anyway, I just feel so good in this dress that I absolutely had to share it with you guys and hopes that maybe it will make someone else feel just as good when they put it on! Hope you guys have a great Friday and a great weekend! Love you guys!
