It’s Wednesday and I’m linking up with Lindsey from The Pleated Poppy for some fashion inspiration.

I found this pink, polka dot dress at a thrift store in Kansas {along with this one and this one–score!} I wore it to church last Sunday and I thought it was fun. But when I was editing the photos I didn’t feel like it was flattering like I’d hoped. I almost deleted all the photos, but then I remembered that I’m not perfect. I don’t have a perfect body. I get most frustrated with my tummy. I wish it was super flat–but there are three problems. The first two are my pregnancies and what they did to my body. {But I got two awesome kids out of that deal!} And the third problem is my love for cupcakes. Oh well!

I liked the dress and I felt pretty wearing it–so I want to share it with you. I want this to be a place where we can be imperfect and real!

I decided to pair the dress with a yellow belt and leopard print shoes, because, why not–right?

The dress is sheer, so I layered a full length slip underneath.

Dress, thrifted. Belt and Shoes, Target. Bag, Jo Totes. Nurture bracelet, my shop. Connected hearts bracelet, my shop.

We need to love ourselves and be more gentle to ourselves, don’t you think?
