WW | Best Dresses & Romper

This Wardrobe Wednesday post features all the dresses I'm loving lately, and there are several.  A few are breastfeeding friendly if you happen to be a milk machine like me currently. ;) Many are part of the #NSale and going fast, but I've heard from Nordstrom that if something from the sale is out of stock to check back, because they are "restocking daily".  Let's hope so because there are still a few things I want that I wasn't quick enough to purchase yet! Like the Lush v-neck tees! Where I noticed sizes were limited, I linked similar options for you.  Oh, and I'm putting my faves in this NSALE tab I just created.  What have you scored??  




Let's start with this sweet, very forgiving LBD.  It's currently still in stock in all sizes (I'm wearing XS) and also comes in burgundy, olive and coral.  I wanted an opportunity to wear my new ankle booties that are just the coolest, and they look so good with dresses!  This pair is similar with cut-outs and laces.

Because I'm so petite, I usually prefer bodycon dresses, but I've been loving the freedom that comes with a looser-fitting dress, like this style.  My postpartum squishy belly likes them too! It's got 3/4 length sleeves and is pretty short, so you still see some skin.  Show off those legs mamas! 





I had to include this picture below because we happened to capture that cutie skateboarder in action! How cool is that?! 








I will literally cry for you if this striped swing dress isn't in stock!  This morning it was only available in 'eggplant' which is still pretty, but the navy/white stripes stole my heart.  This dress is similar though, but without the cowl neckline (which might be even better for summer!). 


dress (similar striped dress) | booties $99.90 now, $149.95 later (similar & here) | Kendra Scott necklace | Rebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel $263 now, $395 later (smaller size)  
Kate Spade 'Kier' sunglasses $116.90 now, $175.00 later similar wrap bracelet 
Burberry watch $349 now, $595 later



I have a big girl crush on Rebecca Minkoff and had to snatch this bag up while it was on sale.  The smaller one is still available and this bag also comes in more colors, like pale blush and pink.  #Iwantthemall!





My Kate Spade 'Kier' sunglasses are already on repeat.  They are really comfortable and face-flattering.  Sunglasses can be tricky, but this pair is a winner!  And they're still in stock (also in black).




Y'all might have caught a glimpse of this gingham drop-waist dress on Instagram a while ago, but I wanted to share the details with you here in case you missed it.  It's that looser style I'm loving now and I've worn it several times already because it's nursing friendly!  It's also on super sale for only $38!  

gingham dress XS $69.50 $64.99 + 40% off = $38 | similar heels here & here (15% off) 
Burberry watch $349 now, $595 later | similar bag ($28.99) my Vera Bradley in other colors is  $168, $135 & FREE shipping! | sunglasses 


It's one of those styles you can dress up for date night (like I did here) or wear to work, or to the park/playdate with flat sandals.  


It's kind of hard to tell, but it's actually dark navy, not black.  But black heels work well with it.  I wore green accessories here, but red, pink, oranges would also pair perfectly.  Even yellow for summer!

My necklace is old from Stella & Dot, but this multistrand necklace would also be great.  I especially love the "maroon" but it looks more magenta to me. 





Here's another dress you saw a peek of on my last Outfits Lately, but it's worth showing again because, like the gingham dress above, I've worn it on date night and with baby around for easy access.  

dress XS $59.50, $54.99 & 40% off = $32.99  | sandals (similar) | necklace | similar bag ($45, $29) | similar bracelets | sunglasses | Burberry watch $349 now, $595 later 



That pretty multistrand beaded necklace was $49.50, marked down to $44.88 and now an extra 40% off that = $26.







Although not technically a dress, I figured this romper deserves a special shout out since I was mentioning nursing friendly outfits here.  This is my favorite romper of the moment!  And it's reduced from $79.50 to  . . . get this, $23.93!

romper size 0 | similar wedges  | similar bag ($28.99) my Vera Bradley in other colors is  $168, $135 & FREE shipping! | similar necklace $44.50$20.93 | similar earrings |  
watch $595, $349 | bracelet (similar) | sunglasses


Even if you aren't typically a fan of rompers, this one might change your mind.  It looks sophisticated and fun at the same time.  It's not too short, not too low cut, and is different from many I've seen because it wraps up top and ties at the waist.  It even has pockets! 









Last but not least, a sexy little bodycon cowl neck dress.  It's soft and comfy on, and not too short. It's still too hot for these Houston summer days.  This ruched body-con dress is better for summer, the material is thinner and it runs TTS. 

You might be able to get away with the cowl neck version in the evening, but after we snapped these pics (and with the jacket below), I was sweating my arse off! Back to jeans shorts ASAP! But it will definitely be a gorgeous neutral dress to wear when it cools off . . . especially with the hat

Let's just put on everything I own for this picture below! Five minutes in this jacket is all I could handle for now, but isn't it gorgeous?!  It's one of those things that seems to be sold out for now, but hopefully they restock soon!  I also have it in black, but size UP because it runs small.  I'm wearing size Small.

I'm ready for you, Fall!
