There's a fine line between girly and childish. And I'll be the first to admit my addiction to all things ruffley ensures that I walk on my tippiest toes along that line. But I try to balance the bows and flowers with simpler pieces so I look feminine rather than costumey.
Although this Rachel Antonoff Silbert Sherbert dress is uber-feminine, I think the racerback and simple cut makes it work. It's a little bit ballerina, a little bit retro, and a lot of fun.
PS: It has pockets!
