Sonnet James: Play Dresses for Playful Moms

When I first read about Sonnet James on Cup of Jo, I was immediately obsessed. Basically, they had me at "play dress." I LOVE to wear dresses, but I am the mother of three boys and these dresses need to be realistic. No short hems. No flimsy fabric. Something with sleeves!

So, if a company was describing their dresses as play dresses - as in I could wear these dresses and still play with my boys, I was all in.

So, when Sonnet James offered to let me try out the Isabel dress, I could barely contain my excitement.

Y'all, I LOVE this dress. It is comfortable. It is flattering. I don't feel exposed or like I'm constantly tugging on it. I can throw on a belt and I feel dressed up enough for a client meeting or dinner with my husband. Or I can wear it with my favorite Chew Beads for a day with my boys. 

My friend Amber Barnett had been following Sonnet James since the founder's initial Kickstarter campaign so she very sweetly agreed to take some shots of me in my new play dress!

The only thing better than the dresses is the story of their creation! The founder of Sonnet James Whitney had a career in interior design but also a passion for fashion and her two little boys. Combining those two passions led to the creation of Sonnet James play dresses! "[Whitney] believes that with the right dress you can look great without letting your clothes get in the way of the next big adventure! Sonnet James was born out of the idea that beautiful clothing should work for moms—durable, comfortable, and beautiful, yet easy to care for. "

Can I get an AMEN!?!

The adorable packaging that came with the dress.
