 A special thanks to Chicwish for this gorgeous dress!

If you follow me on Instagram, you've seen a sneak peek of this dress, and y'all, I have never loved a dress more! Even at 9 months pregnant, I was able to wear this dress for Thanksgiving, and it made me feel extra fancy. I feel like this year especially, we could all use an excuse to dress up a little--even if a whole three other people are going to see you in your outfit! Remember ladies, we dress up for ourselves.

This Ruffle Neck Dress is seriously so beautiful in real life. From the ruffle collar to the tie (which I opted to tie in the back vs. the font!), to the gorgeous detail on the sleeve, it's sure to make you feel a little extra classy.

I know 2020 has been a rough year for many, but as we officially near the end, try and think of all of the good things that did happen. Maybe you lost your job or were furloughed like I was, but that meant you were able to spend more time with family or pursue a hobby or passion that you wouldn't have been able to otherwise.

Personally, for us, I was furloughed for three months, and then finally went back to work, but the blessing in all of it for me was that I was furloughed my entire first trimester when I was extremely sick. I was able to spend my first trimester resting and being sick in the comfort of my own home vs. the entire time in a store trying to hide my discomfort and sickness from clients and my team.

This year brought us many hardships and there were many uncertainties, but it also brought us baby boy. As crappy as 2020 was with the restrictions, not being able to share exciting moments with family & friends, and working in the public while pregnant during a global pandemic, I will always be thankful for this year.

They say that 2020 brought out the realness in people--both good and bad, and I hope that 2020 brought out more good in me than ever before. I hope and pray that the people I came in contact with on a daily basis felt an extra ray of sunshine in the 2020 darkness.

I did size up to a small in this dress to allow a little extra room for the baby bump, however, I would say it fits TTS, and not pregnant, I would have been perfectly fine with an XS!

Be kind, be safe, and have an amazing holiday season!
