Gosh I just love a good retro look. I never finished watching all of Mad Men, but I’m not ashamed to say when I did watch it was mostly to ooh and ahh over the ladies’ outfits. I couldn’t help but get a Betty Draper vibe from this dress, and since I’ll be wearing it to work the title of this post came naturally.

I have a ton of fit and flare dresses on my Amazon wish list right now, and this belted, floral one is my first purchase. I love the vibrant print that’s not overly girly. It’s kind of nice to find a floral without pink every once in awhile, right?

I’ve always found this style of dress to be universally flattering and easy to wear for many occasions. If you need an Easter dress or are attending some graduations this spring then I think this dress is a great choice. It comes in several colorways, too.

I’m wearing a medium, but probably could have ordered a small. The belt has plenty of holes to cinch in the waist, though, so it isn’t too much of an issue. I’ll be throwing it in the dryer to shrink it just a bit.

How do you feel about the retro fit and flare silhouette?
