Daily Covet: Milly Printed Sheer Dress

Still loving dresses… you should know this about me by now.

This Milly printed sheer dress is the perfect silhouette for this girl, who’s only 8 weeks out from the birth of her child.

Michelle Smith’s Milly dress provides nice “armpit fat” coverage and a relaxed fit that skims “birthing hips,” two things I could live without, frankly.  However, since these are a forgone conclusion, I’ll dress for the body I HAVE, not the body I WANT.

But there are two more details that make this dress anything but post-pregnancy frumpy:  Sheer insets at the sleeves and an exposed zipper, which I’m always a sucker for.

It’s like wearable art!

Daily Covet: Athleta Fall Dressing

Seriously, is it fall yet?

I’m ready.  My wardrobe is in limbo.  I wear a ton of linen, and it’s much too late (early?) to be wearing linen.  I have wool trousers, my favorite denim shirt and a velvet hacking jacket just screaming my name.

So, it’s no wonder that I am falling in love with this trés adorable dress from Athleta.  The material is presumably comfy and cozy.  The off-center and exposed zipper is trés chic.  And the draped collar/hood is trés unique.  That means I am wanting it trés beaucoup!

What can I say?  I’m in a dress-loving daze!

Wear it with leggings, knee high boots or tights…  I’m not picky, I just want to wear it!
