DRESS white ruffled maxi dress | SHOES braided sandals | BRACELET gold link bracelet c/o | TOTE raffia stripe tote | EARRINGS pearl studs
When it comes to shopping, I’m all about the deal. I’m a frequent Forever21, H&M and Target shopper, and find a little too much joy in scouting out low-priced boutiques all around in Dallas. (Video on one of my favorite spots is coming soon!) But you know how it goes… every once in a while, you come across a piece that doesn’t quite… fit in the budget, if you know what I mean. But you fall in love, and you can’t stop thinking about it, and you pull the trigger with the “treat yoself” mantra ringing in the back of your head.
That, my friends, is the story of this dress.
A little on the expensive side, but so incredibly good.
If you only could have heard my reasoning for finally adding this gorgeous white maxi to my cart. I went so far as to tell myself that “One day when I get married I’ll wear it to one of my bridal showers!” New low, my friends, new low. But I hope you see why I just couldn’t say no. This dress is unlike the so many I see on a daily basis… the fabric has the most billowy, luxurious feel in the creamiest of whites. The tie-around waistline, the subtle side cuts, the elegant ruffled hemline along the shoulders and hem… all simply too much for me to resist.
Now that it’s mine, I need your help in brainstorming destinations to wear this beauty so that I can fully justify it. They say it takes a village, right? Ready, set, go!
Love from Texas,
