Is this not the most perfect shade of pink? I wore this look last weekend to my friend Amy's baby shower - yes, she's having a girl! I bought this dress last fall before it sold out, and decided the baby shower was the perfect occasion to break it out. To be honest, I was a bit apprehensive to wear pink to the shower. I kept thinking: is this cliche? to matchy-matchy? taking attention away from the mom-to-be? But Amy was excited I was wearing pink, and I wasn't the only one who dressed the color. (Remember this look with pops of blue that I wore to a baby boy baby shower last year.)
For any event, baby or bridal, I always love to dress up and/or dress the theme (remember the look I wore to Amy's wedding last Spring). Personally, I'd rather be over-dressed than under-dressed. I always look to the invitation to give some hints as to what the decor and/or attire might be. When in doubt, ask. Either a friend, the host/hostess or (if its NOT a surprise shower) the honoree. See my bridal shower posts here & here.
I'm sure this dress will get lots of wear this spring. Shop my other pink shift dress picks below.
