Cream and Black

It's been a while since I've been able to wear a maxi dress. All of my old maxi dresses don't fit my chest or aren't nursing friendly so they're out of the question. This dress made me feel very ladylike and was perfect for wearing around the house and for running errands. It was a little cooler during the evening so I threw on this light weight cardigan and finished off the look with my favorite hat and flats.

The Wallis Summer Style competition is running until Saturday evening and I would really appreciate your vote. The previous link I used didn't work on mobile devices but this one will. Click here to vote and thank you so much in advance you guys are awesome! 

Also, I was wondering how people respond to comments via email messages.. I can't seem to  figure it out for the life of me and would love to reply to your comments! 

What I wore: Dress: c/o Wallis// Cardigan: Old Navy (gift from sister)// Hat: Forever 21// Shoes: Urban Outfitters

    Love the lip with this black+white combo.


  5. This whole look suits you absolutely perfectly. The dress is wonderful!

    All my blog comments get sent to my email, so I just reply directly to the comment from my email inbox. The only way that doesn't work is if the person is a "no-reply comment blogger".
