sue sartor // a designer i’m loving

This past week, I had the opportunity to attend The Southern C conference in Sea Island, Georgia. (Only a two and a half hour drive from Gainesville… who knew?!)

For the first time in a long time, I found myself with an exciting question. What on earth to wear?! I wanted to put my best foot forward and needed something a bit more special than the assortment of loungewear and athleisure I’ve accumulated over the past year. :)

I had been seeing the gorgeous silhouette of the Sue Sartor Paloma Dress here and there over the past few months, and decided this was the perfect occasion to pull the trigger. Let’s just say… I’m so happy I did!

After spending hours combing through all of the gorgeous print and color options, I landed on this baby pink Paloma dress. (It’s not online yet, but it will be soon!) Isn’t it a beauty?

I was nervous about how the sizing would work, as Paloma dresses are typically one of three options (Petite, Regular, or XL) and was so relieved and ecstatic when I tried it on. The Petite was perfect for my 5’2 self and not only did it fit like a dream, but the gorgeous and feminine silhouette was what my dreams are made of! (So happy that worked out because I got it in just a couple of days before I left for the conference.)

I am so excited to wear this all throughout spring and summer. It’s just one of those special dresses, you know? And I love that you can wear it with a sash, change out a different belt or wear straight. (And just a tip, I wore this slip underneath just since there’s so much white in the dress.)

I can’t wait to watch the Sue Sartor line grow and evolve. I just love all of the color and femininity Sue brings into her creations, and I feel so lucky to have one of her pieces to treasure and enjoy!

Love from the Sunshine State,
