Style and Comfort with Fresh Produce {Review}

Even though I spend the majority of my days in either jeans or sweats (or, ahem, pajamas), that doesn't mean that I don't appreciate having the option to open my closet and find high quality, timeless articles of clothing as well. After all, sometimes it just feels good to pull on something relaxed and carefree that also adds a bit of a dressy, stylish touch to my life.

While I can easily walk into any department store or through the mall to find those articles of clothing to spruce up my wardrobe, they can often start to all look pretty much the same. Instead, I love finding a company that understands how to dress a woman's body in a way that is flattering, feminine, colorful and, of course, fashionable.

Which is why as soon as I was introduced to Fresh Produce, it was easy to see that their dedication to creating feel-good clothes that women want to wear every day comes through with each and every piece of apparel they offer!

Fresh Produce clothing

Co-founded and still run by a mom entrepreneur, Fresh Produce is primarily made in the USA and is available in Fresh Produce stores and more than 500 specialty retailers throughout the US and Caribbean. From island dresses to lightweight cardigans to shorts and pants of every length, there is a fun, playful print that you're sure to adore.

After looking at page after page of womens sun dresses, flowing skirts and casual tunics, I was not only ready to experience Fresh Produce in person, but I was even more eager for summer to arrive than I had been before! Each piece has such a beachy feel, that it's almost hard to not hear the waves in the background.

When the Harmony Tank Dress arrived, I was immediately in love with the simplicity, elegance and complete versatility that it would provide.

Featuring a soft knit top with a cool cotton sheeting skirt, the photos of the Harmony Dress caught my eye because of a multitude of reasons. Along with the comfortable styling, 100% cotton material and small details at the neck and hem, my eyes rested on the pockets and I was convinced. A cute summer dress! With adorable pockets! I'm sold!

Fresh Produce review

As I had suspected, I loved the features of this dress in person just as much as I had when viewing it on their website.

The mid-weight rib top has a comfortable, tank top feel, with just enough stretch to form to the wearer's body and straps just wide enough to cover a bra. The addition of the raw-yet-delicate detailing along the edge was a perfect touch to give a finished look to the overall piece.

At the same time, the raw edge detail at the bottom hem comes as a triple-layered effect and really takes the whole dress from standard to unique.

Add in the gathering at the empire waist and my beloved pockets, and the overall result is a dress that can be worn for a multitude of occasions. Pair it with flip flops or flats for a day out with the family or add on some jewelry and heels and you're ready to head to dinner in a casual, stylish way.

Fresh Produce dress review
After noticing that reviews of this dress on the Fresh Produce website had mentioned that it ran small, I was concerned about how it would fit. However, I ordered my regular size and found that it was spot on!
From the clean lines to the quality construction (made in the USA) to the way that the Harmony Dress makes me feel confident and put together without any effort or work, I have no doubt that I will be wearing this all summer long and beyond!

Regularly retailing for $56, the Harmony Tank Dress is currently on sale from Fresh Produce for $38.99 and is now only available in black. However, if you're looking for color, there is no shortage of options when it comes to finding a cotton beach dress that will surely make a splash in your wardrobe.

Be sure to visit Fresh Produce on their website as well as connecting with them on Facebook and Twitter to never miss the latest and greatest information. As they now ship to over 200 countries, it doesn't matter where you live - even women outside the US can enjoy the comfort and colorful styles, too!

(Other than the Harmony Tank Dress that I was sent from Fresh Produce, I was not provided with anything or enticed to do this review in any way. This review is solely my opinion of this product.)

That dress is super cute! My mom used to dress my sister and I up in Fresh Produce when we were younger; we'd have the matching neon sets with flowers or fruit. I love that it's still around!
