Wearing: Olive and Clover




I'm truly overwhelmed by your generous comments on Monday's post. I can't express how freeing it was to really claim ownership of my blog again, not to mention the outrageous support from you guys regarding sharing a 'normal' life - grey areas included. Thank you. Really.

Now, onto another self deprecating wearing post. I know, I know - you can totally see my spanx here but this dress is SO lightweight and breezy with the added bonus of buttons down the front (hello accessible milk jugs) that it gets a good running in my wardrobe. It's simple, wearable and has fun little pops of colour in the way of tassels underneath each  button.

Wearing:

Dress c|o Olive and Clover
Necklace c|o Olive and Clover
Sandals | Saltwater
Spanx | target (look, why hide it?)

  6. Gorgeous, Em! Nothing wrong with a good ole Spanx. I need to pull mine out more often. Most of the time, I'm too lazy but then it's muffin top city. :)

  10. Love the pop of colour the necklace gives your whole look and I guess that's the beauty with anything that's white - acts as a plain canvas for you to play with.

  14. Didn't notice the spanx until you said so. But once I did, I once again feel solidarity with you. After giving birth to five children, (especially the three at one time), spanx are one of my best friends, and I never go to any major function without wearing them! The dress looks so comfy and the bit of tassel is cute as!

  16. do you ever wear anything that isn't "sponsored"???? It seems to me you do this blog for all the free stuff, once it was such a great blog and now it seems like you are such a sell out.

  19. Beautiful - I love that you post about breast feeding friendly clothes. For all the promotion of breast feeding - it is so hard to find breast feeding friendly clothing (especially sporting these 10GG puppies - yes, I am a dairy cow)

  23. Love the button details!! We wear bras for our droopy boobs (okay I do), so what's the difference in wearing spandex to give our buts a better shape. Bring it on I say!

  24. Ah, the gorgeous Prue at Olive & Clover strikes again! Doesn't she have beautiful stuff! She is actually an old school friend of mine. Such a stylish woman. And you too Em - of course! ;o)
