Summer is coming to a close, and though Atlanta is currently experiencing hot weather, it's still obvious that Fall is on the horizon. The days are getting shorter, trees are starting to shed their leaves, and acorns seem to be everywhere I step. Soon, it will be too cold to wear sundresses like this one from French Connection.
French Connection Bluhm and Botero Fit and Flare Dress
The dress is currently available only at a few retailers: Amazon, Belk and Nordstrom Rack. Amazon has the biggest selection of sizes, but it's still full price.
This dress makes me feel like dancing! My parents actually treated me to the dress during an amazing sale at Dillard's, when it was marked down over 70%. (I only recommend buying French Connection clothing on sale.) The floral print is fun and the fit and flare design flattering for any body type (especially hourglass figures). But please note that the dress is made of a stiff material, so the skirt does flare out a bit more than typical fit and flare dresses as a result.

I know I mention my parents a lot on this blog, but they are really are wonderful parents -- not just to me, but to my sisters and our husbands as well. In addition to being generous, they are always willing to help out with whatever we need. Just recently, for example, they kept Norman and Wally while we went to Cincinnati. When we stopped to pick them up, my mom had gluten-free lasagna waiting so we could eat before we went home. They continue to surprise and delight me with their thoughtfulness. I think I hit the lottery when it comes to parents. I hope they read this post and know how much I love them.
