I got this dress a while back when it went on major sale at Nordstrom. I actually ordered 3 of them to see which I liked best and finally settled on this navy blue color. It's a flattering cut and the ruching across the tummy helps disguise problem areas. There is a sleeveless version I am debating on for summer I like this one so much. Sizing runs small so I would recommend sizing up one size from your typical size. 

Because it is still pretty chilly here, I paired it with a pink cardigan and the Alison Semi-Precious Pendant necklace in Cobalt from Alison + Aubrey. They just launched their jewelry collection and it's full of beautiful pieces that work across settings and ages. Their mission is to inspire mothers & daughters of all types across the world to celebrate their strong bond over the love of fashion and jewelry, and to empower all women to feel confident in their every-day style choices by providing unique quality accessories to compliment any outfit. And all of their pieces are affordable! 
Alison + Aubrey was kind enough to sponsor a giveaway for an item of your choice from their collection! You can enter below. And use code LAURA15 through April 30 for 15% off your total order!

    Hope you have had a brilliant weekend :) We had a busy one, some Church Online people flew over from the US so the weekend was full of activities, we had a party at my place last night which was fun!

  4. This dress is beautiful and I love the navy color. I like that you paired it with a pink cardigan for a nice color contrast! I have been eyeing this dress for awhile now too and saw it go on sale unfortunately it was only available in bigger sizes so I couldn't try it on.

  35. Ohh that dress is perfect on you! I love it with the pretty pink cardigan and necklace. I always think that a form-fitting dress like that wouldn't be flattering on me but maybe with the ruching it would work--I love it!
