Floral Off-Shoulder Maxi in the Gardens

Floral Off-Shoulder Maxi in the Gardens

This past weekend was one of my favorite weekends in a long time. We are constantly on the go with plans, events, appointments, travels or having company in town, and this weekend has been one of the first in WEEKS (and for weeks to come) that we have had absolutely nothing to do. Once we realized we had a weekend home with no commitments, our only plan was to keep it that way so we could actually enjoy it and do whatever the heck we wanted to do whenever we wanted to do it. So when we woke up to a beautiful morning on Saturday, we decided to head downtown to enjoy a day at the Riverside Arts Market and the Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens. After about an hour at the market, the air conditioning inside the museum was MUCH welcomed. Not even May yet and already almost 90 degrees here in Jacksonville – WHEW! Also very welcomed at the museum: how beautiful everything was! I can’t believe we have lived here for nine years and have never been there. If you’re ever in Jacksonville and want something awesome to do, go visit the Cummer. The art and displays are fantastic, but the GARDENS!! The beauty completely took my breath away. The architecture, the landscaping, the views … it was seriously heavenly and I could have spent all day out there. Baby Daisy was due for a nap, though, so we had to call it quits after a while.

It was the perfect day (and backdrop!) for this fabulous fuchsia floral off-shoulder maxi dress from PinkBlush. I have been dying to wear this, and a warm summer day with the fam seemed like the perfect time. The color is stunning, the material is lightweight and flattering, and you can’t go wrong with off-the-shoulder styles right now. Not to mention it’s nursing-friendly, and also pregnancy-friendly for those of you who are growing a tiny human!

PinkBlush is one of my absolute favorite online boutiques. They have the cutest maternity, non-maternity and nursing-friendly clothes at super affordable prices. (I loved this dress when I was pregnant, and love it even more now that I’m nursing.) Plus they always have great sales, and offer free US shipping (a mega bonus in my book).

Because of the ruffle detail on this dress and the busy floral pattern, I kept accessories to a minimum. My hair was big and curled and looked super awesome, but it lasted all of ten minutes in the humidity. Real cool, Florida … why do I even try? You can shop my look via the links below. I hope you had a fantastic weekend! I’ll be back soon with more fun Spring-to-Summer style and makeup!

For those who have asked what strapless bra I wear, it’s this one! It it full support to keep the “mom boobs” where they’re supposed to be, and is seamless and comfortable.
