This dress just can’t help but make you happy, right? My debit card is tie dye, and when I walked downstairs for Easter Sunday church, Christian looked at me and said, “you look like your debit card!” He is actually 100% correct.

I have this theory that your significant other likes you to look like you did when they met you.  For example, when Christian and I met, I wore bright colors and had long dark hair.  Fast-forward eight years and he still prefers me in bright colors with long dark hair.  I put a tiny amount of ombré in my hair and he was all, “what is happening!?”

I’ve shared with y’all before that C loves when I wear bright colors because it reminds him of college when we were dating and I was all about the bright colors and bajillions of bangles.  I am Southern, more is more and I’m fine with it.

Do y’all feel like your significant other prefers that you look like you did when you first met or is my theory totally off? I’d love to hear

Thanks so much for reading y’all – XO –

  1. You know, I think you might be on to something! I’ve been blow drying my hair straight for years since its the on-going trend but a few months ago I got a new cut that really compliments my naturally curly hair. (Think inverted bob cut).
    My husband has been so frisky ever since! LOL
    That’s the way I wore it when we started dating 30 yrs ago – I should gone to my “dating” style years ago! (I’m 51, not dead) haha!
    I think you should do whatever make you happy but it doesn’t hurt that your significant other likes it too – 🙂
    Oh, and your maxi dress is just way too cute!

  2. I actually think my fiance prefers how I look now. We met my freshmen year of college, so we were really young. I had really short hair and was super little because I was a gymnast. Over the years I’ve grown in to myself more and my hair is as long as it’s ever been. I’ve also dyed it darker and he tells me how much he loves it almost every day. I do think your theory has some weight though has we all like to be nostalgic about some of the best times of our relationships though!

    1. Oh my gosh this is the best comment ever because I have SUCH flat hair. It just takes some hairspray, a little teasing and more hairspray. 🙂

  3. Any word as to whether or not this dress is still available? I can’t find it on their website and I must have it! 🙂

    1. I’ve been emailing them about this and they haven’t responded just yet – I am following up now!
