River Island textured cami midi dress (US 6) (c/o – also comes in blue!) / River Island triangle crossbody bag (c/o) / Tan suede espadrille wedges (6.5 TTS) / Charlotte Tilbury lipstick in ‘Pillow Talk’
In case you missed it, I recently gave birth to our baby boy, Theo! I loved styling my bump over the past nine months, but now that I’m focused on postpartum recovery, I’m opting for dresses that are super soft and simple, but still put together (because getting dressed and putting on a little makeup can do wonders to break up those early newborn days!).
Enter this black strappy dress from River Island – a not-new, but new-to-me brand that launched on Nordstrom.com earlier this spring. It’s hard to go wrong with a black dress, but this one has a few special details that I especially love: the ultra thin straps give this dress a modern feel. Plus, the fabric is stretchy and soft and has a gorgeous texture to it, which makes it both so comfy and a bit more interesting than your basic LBD. It’s great as an everyday dress, or elevated enough to wear for a special occasion – it also comes in this gorgeous shade of sky blue if a pop of color is more your speed!
Thank you Nordstrom for sponsoring this post!
