We have a few special events coming up this summer that I've been looking for a dress to wear. One in particular is Aveline's baptism. It's an important occasion for us and I would like us all to look our best. For Claire's baptism I wore a lace dress, but it was boxy and looked awful in photos. I won't be making the same mistake this time around! This pretty lavender dress from PinkBlush is a strong contender. Its empire waist creates a flattering silhouette since it highlights the smallest part of your waist. Then flows over any lingering trouble areas without too much volume that could make you look larger in photos. It's also very comfortable to wear! Since her baptism isn't until July, I might even have a bit of a tan by then to show off the gorgeous lavender color of the dress, too! 

Do you have any special occasions you need a dress for this summer?

  1. Oh that is such a beautiful dress! I love the style and colour, this would be perfect to wear for a baptism! :) I really like your hair in these photos too!


    Hope you are having a nice week so far! We had a day off yesterday which was lovely, although not as relaxing as I hoped when you have two kids at home, haha! :)

  2. Your dress is beautiful! We have our son's graduation coming up and when I look back at my older son's grad photos I realize how awful I looked! I thought I looked great and then bam! The pictures don't lie. I swore I wouldn't make the same mistake this time so I really relate to what you said about the upcoming baptism. I'm sure you'll love your photos this time around!

  16. Such a pretty dress! I love pink on you! I really like high/low dreses, I think it just makes me feel a little more covered in the Spring when it can still be a little chilly.
