Celebrating National Dress Day 2019 Featuring Catherines

***This post was sponsored by Catherines but all opinions are my own***

Hola Estrellitas! Today, it’s National Dress Day and I am so excited to bring you guys three dresses courtesy of plus size retailer Catherines. You guys already know that I am a dress girl. I love dresses! I like to look pretty and feminine. It must be because of my Latin roots or because I live in the South. Either way, check out my picks!

Look #1: Floral Faux Wrap Fit & Flare Dress
This charming floral print faux wrap fit & flare dress with a contrasting border hem is perfection. If you don’t like to show off your arms, this is the dress for you because the sleeves of the dress are very roomy. I decided to add a belt to separate the print and enhance my waist, but you don’t really need it. It fits perfectly, true to size.

Look #2: Lemon Drop Lace Fit & Flare Dress
The color of this dress is fabulous, especially for Spring/Summer. I think that this dress is perfect to wear to a Summer wedding. It will also be appropriate to wear it for Easter or Mother’s Day. Yellow is associated with hope and happiness. It is an attention getting color that stands for freshness, happiness, positivity, energy, and joy. I love it!

Look #3: Teal Floral Print Fit & Flare Dress
Although this dress could also be worn without a belt, I added an Obi belt anyways. I think that obi belts are elegant and sophisticated. I am obsessed with them and this print. The color combination of the teal, with the black and white is captivating. What I like the most about this dress and the others, it’s that they are easy to fold and take with you anywhere. When you are travelling, whether it is for business or vacation, you need practical clothes that don’t wrinkle easily. This dress can be worn with heels or with sneakers. Add a hat, and it is the vacation dress of your dreams.

      Hi Norma,
      Yes they are! I have never worn Cato’s, I don;t think we have any down here in Florida but Catherines sizing is very generous.
      Give them a try!
