nairobi dress

Aaand it’s everything I hoped for!

Positives:

  • The material and pattern are super flattering
  • It’s pretty toasty so I’ll get to wear it here in Michigan a lot
  • It’s longer than it looks, I thought my cheeks would be barely covered but as you can see I have a few extra inches
  • It’s beaUtiful!!

Slight Cons

  • It does ride up quite a bit (what short dress doesn’t?)
  • the sleeves are oddly long, however this is easily fixed by tucking them under
