Mama Loves Sonnet James

I cannot tell you how ridiculously into these dresses I am.

Sonnet James was created by a fellow mom, Whitney. She believes that being a mama means that you can wear dresses. You can look pulled together. You can be super mom, and look good doing it too.


I waited a long time for these dresses…and coming from the apparel industry, I know how grueling (and thankless!) garment production can be. I placed my order in March, and got them in May. But holy cow, they were worth the wait.


I ordered two of their dresses, the Remi Dress, and the Mara dress, and I love them both. They have a round neckline (so when i bend over, I don’t flash the world), and are long enough that I can roll around and also pick my kid up. They fall over my new-mom curves, and amazingly, hide my new-mom rolls.

These dresses are totally chic.

And you know what? Most importantly, the dresses are totally comfortable.

Oh also, did I tell you that Olive already spilled BBQ sauce on them? But I got them out by throwing the dress into the wash. No big.

So here I’m going to say thanks: Thanks for my friend for giving me a heads up to buy these dresses. And thanks to Whitney, because seriously, these dresses make being a Cool Mom a little more achievable. And let’s be honest… We all need some help in that department.

      Thank you! I’m obsessed! I want more short sleeved ones (Since the heat wave we’ve been having here in SoCal…I can’t bear to wear anything with sleeves right now!)

    Hello! I just stumbled upon your blog while searching for Sonnet James dresses. Love it!
    I have a question on the dress on the pictures, did it shrink when you washed it? I see the fabric content and I get scared they will shrink on me!

    Thanks much.
