I first learned about Sonnet James from a Main Street Mama: Whitney Miller. Whitney is an incredibly stylish, yet down to earth & playful mom to two young boys so when she reviewed the dress - my ears perked up. The family photographer mentioned that you could breast feed and the dress didn't lose shape. I had to explore. I reached out to Sonnet James, owned by one incredible mama, also a Whitney, and based in Palo Alto. Over the past year my Sonnet James dresses have been my goes to's for most anything where I want to be comfortable yet stylish. Some examples are as follows:
- I wore the Playdress - appropriately coined - below, paired with a faux fur vest & black booties to church during the holidays. Then out for brunch with the kids! (Similar style here )
- I wear this dress for everything! Park play, office days, with a shrug over it for a baby shower, or for big hugs (as seen below). The integrity of the fabric is remarkable. You can basically work out in them, they are so pliable. Yet their shape remains intact. They wash wonderfully, so don't worry about little fingers.
The dresses are incredibly versatile, especially if you pick a solid or stripe. You can play it down with a pair of Supergas. Dress it up with fun jewelry and a bootie or kitten pump. As mentioned, they stretch very well, and also allow you to filter for maternity on their site. As you build your capsule wardrobe, these are a must have. Add them to your Holiday Wish List!
