PICKET FENCE CHIC

All the flowers in these photos, from the real ones in the background to the print on my dress, make me giddy for the Summer. As much as I’m all about floral dresses in the Summertime, I definitely stepped out of my comfort zone with the length of this dress. My legs are not my favorite asset, but I’m learning to accept my body for what it is. Sometimes you have to push yourself to get over it and make the best of it…and once you do, it’s quite liberating!

  1. I love the shoes w/this dress – looks so bold and sophisticated however I don’t think the length of the dress is flattering. If it was a bit longer than I think it would look nice but the babydoll length of it makes it look too juvenile. I’d pair it w/some black leggings or tights.

  2. This is super cute, just wondering how I can “mom” it up a bit, lol. I do wish it were just a smidge longer because I have zero confidence for shorter things, but I really like the look. :)

  4. I already have 4 pairs of fushia shoes but 3 of them are sandals, need a new pair of suede pumps! Cute pattern on the dress! (See you in Florence??)
