I might make an exception for this dress, though. I got the dress in my Dia & Co. box a couple of months ago, and it stopped me dead in my tracks—not in a good way. I almost never wear a girly, traditional floral print, so I was a little confused as to why this ended up in my box. I happened to be live streaming my unboxing on Dia & Co.'s  Facebook page, and I don't think I hid the fact that I was disappointed. Immediately, viewers were commenting, "Try it on!" So, I did. And honestly, I was quite surprised. Although the pattern wasn't me, I couldn't deny how well the dress fit me and how it accentuated my curves.

With that being said, I gave it a shot. And the people in my life—especially my boyfriend—love the breath of fresh air this dress brings to my dark, monochromatic wardrobe. I'll admit, I feel really girly, fun, and beautiful in the dress, and I may be more open-minded about sporting floral prints in the near future. But shall we get onto the details? Like I said, I found this dress in one of my Dia & Co. boxes—you can learn more about Dia & Co. here: NOT A DRILL: I'M WEARING A TUTU. This Jude Flare Sleeve Floral Dress is actually from Collection by Bobeau's B Curvy plus size line. Another detail that I really love is the flowiness and shape that the bell sleeves bring to the dress. I could definitely see myself wearing this dress to a summer wedding, brunch, a casual day out, or a nice dinner. Here's to trying to incorporate more florals into my wardrobe this summer! If you're a floral dress kind of gal, and you happen to love the way this Collection by Bobeau dress looks, check out other floral dresses from that brand in the shop widget below!

DISCLAIMER: I claim to never wear floral prints, which is totally true if we are talking about the traditional-looking floral patterns out there. However, I do enjoy a refreshing, edgy, and sexy take on floral prints. Check these looks out: RUN AWAY WITH ME | TROPICAL GODDESSSTRIPED FLORAL SHIFT DRESS | KIMONO VIBES  | MUTED FLORALS AND TULLE

SIZING INFO: I am wearing a size 1X in this dress, which is one size smaller than my usual size, and it fits perfectly. I have never tried any other articles of clothing from Collection by Bobeau, so I'm not sure if the entire plus size line runs large or not.
