The Cutest Dress I've Ever Owned

Monday, June 19, 2017

There was a dress from Anthropologie a few years ago, that I have been obsessively trying to find. It was kelly green and had tennis rackets embroidered on it. (Here is the dress I'm talking about) I could never seem to find it on Ebay or Poshmark in my size, despite my searching. 

When I first saw this shirtdress from Ann Taylor, I knew I had to have it. Not only did it have tennis rackets on it, but it was also navy blue - my go to color. It completely fills the void of that Anthro dress, and actually my love for this dress surpasses the other.

Not only is this dress probably the cutest thing I've ever owned, but it's comfortable and flattering. The tailoring is on point. Gotta love Ann Taylor for stuff like this. 

Also! I finally buckled and bought the Sam Edelman Felicia flats! They have such great reviews, but I was hesitant to invest in a more expensive flat. Well, they are worth every penny. They are incredibly comfortable and they required ZERO breaking in. I can't believe I wasted so much money before on cheap ballet flats that start peeling after a few wears. (I'm hard on shoes!) 

Leave a comment below if you've ever regretted not buying a dress, but found a better one later! Would you rather spend a little extra on a pair of shoes, or buy cheaper ones that may not last as long?
