Happy Monday y’all! Welcome to a new week šŸ™‚ After church yesterday I had the whole afternoon completely open and it was total bliss! I was able to work ahead on the blog for the week, unpack from my NYC trip, do laundry, grocery shop, meal prep – wow was it productive! And I need a productive day because this Friday I’m headed to Houston!! (I know, I never stop moving! haha).

So I have a funny story about this palm print maxi dress… but we’ll have to back up for a minute. Back in July I had a pretty exciting first date with a sweet guy – and you better believe I was stressed out about what to wear for it! After searching for weeks, I settled on this floral dress. I posted it in my Amazon FB page and the ladies went wild! Everyone was giving it 2 thumbs up! Well literally the day before my date I showed my boss my dress and she jokingly told me it was “a little amish” and that I should “show more leg!” haha. Fast forward a few weeks and when I showed her this dress, she said “now this is a date dress!”  Glad I have her approval! šŸ™‚

Funny side note: After taking all these pictures I was reviewing them and I realized that I was holding my clutch upside down in every picture! #FacePalm. This is what happens when you shoot 15 outfits in one day & change in the back of a car!

    Haha about the upside down clutch. I’ve taken outfit photos wearing a dress the wrong way before so I feel ya. Nice that you wore this palm print maxi on the date. It was a good choice!

    What size are you wearing here? Iā€™m thinking Iā€™d need the same.

    • August 14, 2018 / 10:34 am

      I’m wearing a medium in the dress šŸ™‚ You can double check the size chart on the site to make sure that would work for you too!

    I love a good plunge neckline on a dress/top ((and pretty sure my boyfriend does too haha)) so this would be perfect for a date night!

    Amish – that is funny – but not at all accurate! I don’t know much about the Amish but I am guessing palm print maxi-dresses are their thing haha! Really, it is the perfect date dress – feminine, on trend but not scary fashion. Most guys are pretty conservative regarding date clothes and they don’t want a ton of ‘leg’ on show (I’ve found) – they’d rather be guessing! Ok I am sounding a ‘Mom’ now but it is true! You looked amazing and I am sure you had a great time – once you feel amazing everything else seems to fall into place! J xx
