Babydoll Dreams

If I was a fashion designer, my signature piece would be the babydoll dress. I have always been drawn to this silhouette. I think it started because while appearing to be thin, my weight is all carried around the middle, and the babydoll allowed me to hide the tummy while turning the focus to my legs. But what it really comes down to is that the babydoll is just so darn cute. And, it can be really sexy if styled correctly. I’ve worn this silhouette for play, work, and even to events such as weddings. And while the “doll” never goes out of style, it does have certain moments and this spring is one of them. There are a ton of adorable variations out there and today I’m going to share some of my favorites with you.

This truly captures the hippy element for me and I’ve actually owned similar dresses. The navy is a nice alternative to black, especially going into spring.
