I think I’ve alluded to, but not actually talked about how I’m going to be an aunt! My little niece is due on June 27th and I’m so excited to have a new tiny addition to our family and take on the role of Aunt Emily! This is my brother’s first child and my immediate family’s first great grand baby. The baby shower is at the end of this month and so I’ve been on the hunt for an appropriate ‘sister of the host’ / spring style dress for the occasion. And I found that in this floral bandeau midi dress!
I fell in love with the colors and print of this dress and since it was a midi length I was sold. If you haven’t noticed I LOVE midi dresses – you can shop some of my favorites here, here and here. I thought that the colors in this dress were perfect for a baby shower especially in the spring!
This dress is low in stock online, but the maternity version is still available in most sizes (how appropriate!). If you are able to, size down one or two sizes especially if you have a smaller chest. My A cups don’t exactly fill this top out and with something strapless it’s sort of imperative to get the right size so that the dress stays where it should! Luckily, I had it altered so we don’t have a mishap at the baby shower. Also, because of the stretchy material it is difficult to wear a padded strapless bra. I pulled out my favorite backless and strapless bra that I wear once in a blue moon when I have a stubborn dress like this one. It’s seriously a life saver and fits better than most of my regular bras! Totally worth the $50 even if you only use it a couple times a year!
Since the dress is almost sold out this is a favorite of mine and super similar in style. This is a bit brighter, but super cute. And I love this – it may or may not be in my cart! Can’t wait to wear this to the baby shower next week and to meet my niece in almost a month! Eeeek!
