  1. First, Happy Birthday!
    Then a BIG THANK YOU for this post! I’m so tired of all the puffiness and frills of adult dressing. As always, you are leading the pack, on the bleeding edge, as we hopefully transition into a more refined way of dressing!

    1. Thank you so much for the birthday wishes! Glad this post hit the mark — had a lot of positive feedback on Instagram when I shared this, too. xx
