I can count on on hand the number of times this Summer I have left the house in a non-nursing dress. Yes, it is less than five. And that’s okay. I still find it remarkable when I think about it that I have been able to breast feed Lily for nearly six months – I did not think I would make it six weeks.! A nd while it is wonderful that many of my pre-pregnancy clothes are beginning to fit, feeding my child clearly takes priority. However, after a number of months I have realized how important a bit of quality time without my baby is and this fun and flirty dress is one of the first pieces I turned to.
I am going to aim to share a new post every week in the I Really Love My … series to help me become more inspired by my own closet and this dress felt like a wonderful place to start. Looking back I can not believe it was not included here A Closet Full of Leopard. After quite a bit of searching, and trust me, I tried, I can tell you the brand is essentially un-Googable – hard to believe in 2023! However, I brought this dress at a vintage store in Berlin on a business trip four years ago which makes a bit more sense. I love the tiered style, the sheer long sleeves, and the Spandex – what a wonderful invention! Take a look at my traveling Berlin leopard dress, I have included a caption above each photo to place it:

In just nine photos there are four other pieces already published in the Really Love My … series my Prada Vitello Tote, my go-to red Gucci Soho bag , the classic navy Longchamp Tote, and my Shashi Pearl Drop Earrings. And it would not be a Sparkles and Shoes series if more posts were not in the works so look out for posts coming on my black block heels, the Ipanema Rubber Sandals, and my Office loafers!
What do you think of my Berlin leopard dress?
