Wedding Weekend Must Haves Under $100 - Mom Body Approved!May 27, 2016
Just dropping in because we're off to a family wedding this weekend and I planned to blog all of my outfits on Monday - but then I realized that (duh) all of them are on crazy sale and I shouldn't wait til Monday to tell you about them! I know many of you appreciate my honest feedback on how pieces fit certain body parts and what sizes I rock, so I'm just going to drop them all here with super quick size notes/feedback I'll be back on Monday with shots of me wearing each piece and how they held up against my dance floor shenanigans. No need for ya'll to miss out on a sale because I was slow on the uptake!
And also, every.single.item. is under $100 pre-sale!
Use code HISUMMER to save 20% and shipping is free both ways (P.S. I did not save 20% and am trying not to be irritated about it).
Navy Tee Shirt Dress with pockets, wearing a size 12
OBSESSED, have already worn it a ton, perfect weekend dress and great for mom days, too. The length is perfect and the fit is boxy but not unflattering. If it came in more colors, I would own them all. Perfect for Brunch or running around doing bridal party errands!
Red Lace and Pleat dress, wearing size 10 Tall
Grabbed the tall for length and probably didn't need to, but the dress is a midi so it's not a big deal. Note that the sleeves are very fitted on me, not loose like the model, and the back and chest is very sheer so you'll need to go bra-less - which means it's going back. I did pull it on for a quick second to shoot a photo with Christa because the color is just so stunning but sadly my post-baby boobs cannot be contained by a tape bra or sweet little petals, so I have to return. I would highly recommend it for anyone who can get away with no bra or a Nu-Bra because it is really, really flattering on. The waist hits at the perfect spot and the flowy, pleated skirt hides everything from your natural waist south.
This dress is going back for one reason only - it accentuates my chest making it look larger. It's very modest and actually perfect for the office but I just don't care to make my breasts look any bigger than they are. I really wished it worked on me but it just doesn't - but I know it will look fabulous on so many of you. It would be perfect for a wedding where you just don't know the dress code - add nude sandals, big earrings and walk out the door!
Closet 2 in 1 Pencil Midi, wearing size 12
Oh yeah, this is what I'm wearing to the ceremony and I love it. I can wear a real bra with it, the v neck is super flattering and the bow is a sweet detail. The back has a shiny gold exposed zipper that I love and the color pallet allows me to play with fun accessories.
Ruffle Hem Shift Dress, wearing size 10 Tall
I looooove this dress. I'll wear this to the Bridal Luncheon with a little jacket and wedges and can't wait. It already made an appearance on my snap chat from the office on Thursday - it's soft, the perfect length and super flattering. I plan to wear it all summer both dressed up and down.
Check my Insta for shots of the pieces as I wear them and I'll round them up on the blog next week!
Have a wonderful holiday weekend and thank you to all who serve!
