Dressing Up Floral

Hey friends!


Today I am bringing you a new edition to Lessons in Bravery. Life and Style.


I love style. I mean it, I love it. I love that we can dress to fit our personalities, but even more than that I love that we are able to rock who we are with clothes.


Recently this super cute company, Cleo Madisonasked me to try one of their dresses. Of course I totally was down to do that. Free clothes?? Heck yeah!!

I love dresses! I mean it, but my problem is that I am on the short side… and all my short girls say Hey! It has always been hard for me to find dresses that down drag, droop, or just plain look too fluffy.


When the girls from Cleo Madison hit me up I was a little nervous because, well, I am not a size 4, 5’8, or weighing 120 lbs. So I wasn’t sure how this would work out in my favor.


After looking through their dress, which they have some super cute ones, I chose the Gigi Floral Dress. And let me tell you… I LOVE IT!!

I wore it to church the day after I got it in the mail and man, people were loving it.


Everything about this dress is stellar. I mean it- from the super length, its perfect for this short kid, to the sleeves length, everything about it is amazing- even the price… $33 bucks! I mean come on! And did I mention it has POCKETS!! Every dress should have pockets, like it should be a requirement. But yes, this beauty has pockets. Need I say more.

The Outfit

I matched it up with my jean jacket as well as a loose sweater and each time I wore it out I got so many compliments. You could dress this baby up with a pair of wedges, heels, or take it down a notch with flats, sandals or for me little booties. Not only is this dress great for the colder days but I have a feeling it will be a beauty in spring as well.

I also added a hat. Why? Because hats can change up an outfit. Sometime they just add a little funk, flair, and color that an outfit needs or that your day needs.

Now can I tell you that the fabric is oh so soft? Cause it is. I mean super soft. And the dress washes like a dream! I washed it with like colors on cold and hung it to dry – BOOM!


It will be a perfect travel dress, along with work dress.


So do yourself a favor and go check out Cleo Madison
