In an honest attempt to not drag on these birthday posts (one more! And then I’m gonna post about pie! And the whole30! Oh the irony is just too much!), I thought I’d share a quick Saturday post on Olivia’s birthday dresses because they are seriously too perfect not to share.
Between the two, I have to say that the one she wore on her actual birthday was my favorite. Dominic and I were out one afternoon at the beginning of the summer, just the two of us (I cannot for the life of me remember why Olivia wasn’t there!) when we came across this dress. I think it’s my favorite because Dominic actually picked up the dress first and we both immediately fell in love. It was on sale, it was the perfect shade of blue and I am such a sucker for a good peter pan collar.
The minute I saw this dress, I snatched it up. Seriously. I think it was in my cart in point eight seconds from the moment I saw it, ask Dominic. I knew that it would be PERFECT for her birthday party, since there was gold in the color scheme. I will admit that I had a completely different dress in mind, and then my in-laws surprised me and bought it for Olivia but don’t fret, I plan on using said dress as one of her Christmas outfits because it’s just as perfect and too beautiful to never wear.
Anyway, this dress. Can we talk about the butterfly sleeves? Such a simple dress but those sleeves just make it that much more not simple. Does that make sense? It does in my head…. Olivia loved this dress so much that she would not let us take it off until about a half hour before she finally passed out for the night.
I’d probably never take it off either.
