happy friday + some really cute dresses.

i was reading joanna goddard’s blog, smitten, this morning, and was immediately—ahem—smitten with a sweet yellow dress from sotto boutique that she posted on thursday. adorable and perfect for a first date, no?

anyway, that post got me thinking about other cute first-date dresses, so i perused the selection at sotto and then clicked on over to bird —one of my favorites—to look at their dresses. here’s a little round-up of my favorites—date dresses are kind of appropriate going into the weekend, right?

{ clockwise from top left: mayle; mina perhonen (this one’s a bit fancy—perfect for dinner at a nice restaurant, i think; rachel comey (this is my favorite—i’d pair it with a brown belt and flat brown boots like these from loeffler randall); and vena cava, all from }

speaking of the weekend, i hope you have a wondrous one, my loves. see you back here on monday! xx


  1. That yellow dress IS great!


  2. ooooh someone's thinking about first dates! ;)

    I'm actually looking for a new dress. Want something cute to wear for our engagement pictures.

    But I am looking more along the lines of something from Kohl's. Haha, especially since I have a gift card.

  3. haha, yeah, all of these dresses are totally out of my price range, but they're just so beautiful! :)

    and i love kohl's--the simply vera line is so pretty. you must let me know what your engagement-picture dress looks like! xo

  4. Love love love and love it some more!!
