Spring Coats: Banana Republic Coat + Striped Dress

I hope you all had a great Memorial Day weekend! We expected a weekend filled with rain, and got almost completely the opposite. So, we ended up spending a lot of time outside playing, planting flowers in our pots, prepping the garden to plant and grilling. All of the rain last week had me in a bit of a foul mood, and the sun over the weekend definitely helped (although, today we’re back to rain!). It was also nice to take a bit of a break from my computer and social media. I didn’t post on Instagram and did really minimal work here on the blog. I’m sure I’ll be playing catch up for a few days this week, but here’s hoping I don’t end up getting called for jury duty so that I’ll have time to do it!

I got this outfit to wear to Dylan’s school program a few weeks back. The program didn’t exactly go well, so we didn’t even stick around to get a family photo afterward (I need to get better at that, even if it’s not the best situation, I wish we had a photo of it!). But I’m truly surprised at how much I love this dress. It is a sweater dress, which I tend to shy away from because I always feel like they’ll be too tight and I feel like my butt will look big. But this dress was so well reviewed that I wanted to give it a try. And you guys, it is SO comfortable and so flattering! Yes, you probably need Spanx with it, but you’ll really love it. I plan on also wearing with sneakers or flat sandals and tying a denim jacket around my waist. The summer of the dress continues!
