If you guys follow me on Instagram, you know I have tried this dress on a while before when it first came out and didn't like the fit. I tried on XS, S and even petites and just wasn't right. Couple of weeks ago, LOFT had extra 50% clearance sale in the stores and I once again bumped into this dress and the price was so tempting I gave it a second look. I loved the green & the print and this time I tried a size M, belted it and ended up really liking the look. Since it's still pretty cold around here I'm wearing it more like a tunic with black leggings!  Being a size or two up from what I usually wear, it gave it a nice blousy effect.   A belt is a must for this piece otherwise it just looks huge and sloppy.    On a side note, my daughter had her 15 month checkup this week and we're still at 5% for weight (just shy of 20lbs) but we jumped to 20% for height! So Dr. said looks like she will be tall and thin :). 

Dress - Ann Taylor LOFT Parrot Print Green Dress -  not online anymore, but local store had bunches!!
Belt - Ann Taylor LOFT Braided Shimmer Stretch Belt - Get it here
Leggings - Ann Taylor LOFT Ponte Black Leggings (few years old)
Flats - Lucky Brand Emmie Flats in Gold via eBay

  4. Looks super cute!! I've been eyeing up that belt for awhile, but I don't really have anything to go with it in my wardrobe right now. I also like the yellow striped cardigan on your Instagram, is that from LOFT? Are your going to be posting your recent LOFT purchases too?

    Olivia :-)

    P.S. - Glad to see you back. I missed your posts!!

    1. Hi Olivia!! Yes I'm planning on posting that soon too!! The belt is very neutral so it could go with just about anything! That yellow cardi is from the Banana Republic clearance section:
