Almost every spring/summer and fall/winter season, I purchase one item that may not be super practical but makes me feel pretty and unique. I saw this dress prior to our trip to Europe and my husband talked me into getting it with my birthday money. On our first evening in Paris, which was also my birthday, I got to wear it out for dinner. I felt so pretty, somewhat young and carefree, that I even did a little spin (check the photos below).
This was also the only time I wore shoes with a heel, my Nine West wedges, instead of my sensible Etnies which I lived in for the most of our trip. I paired the dress up with the simple, yet feminine, H & B rose gold necklace (also a birthday present) and my sparkle ball earrings.
Though I wore this dress for a date night, it actually looks very cute with some fancier flip flops, or sandals, a floppy hat and a beach bag for a casual beach look or for running some errands around down.
