Oh, an ode to my Sonnet James dress – guys. I’ve always loved these dresses.
My good college friend introduced these dresses to me a few years ago and mentioned they were starting a Kickstarter campaign. As soon as I heard the Sonnet James (Whitney’s) message I was hooked: Her entire line is designed to help moms feel comfortable and PLAY with their kids. That’s right, get down on the floor, play at the park or playground, get dirty – then machine wash and repeat. The fabric is thick and breathable – and again MACHINE WASHABLE. No more dry cleaning or special cleaning instructions for your nice dresses. What a concept!
The concept of “playing” with my own child wasn’t hard for me – my clothes never held me back, However, as a special education teacher it was really hard for me to look “professional” but still get on the floor and play with my students. This dress solved that problem for me.
I didn’t realize until I got this dress that it’s mostly white with a smidge (semi-circle) of color. I was REALLY nervous guys. I mean, hello? It’s a WHITE dress and I’m SOOOO pregnant. Luckily, the white isn’t see-through and it’s thick enough to suck everything else in (if you catch my drift).
Plus it’s stretchy and lovely. Stretchy enough to fit over my pregnant belly. Need I say more?
