Like the Greek/Roman Goddess herself, this dress can add me to her list of current “lovers” as I’ve fallen for this print in a way I never imagined. At first glance my thoughts tried to convince me this pattern wasn’t my style but then my bolder sub-conscience reminded me to take risks this season. So yes, I’m glad my friends at L+F saw my riskier side when sending me this piece because I seriously couldn’t be happier with it. It’s oddly the best print to work with when you’re hesitant of the pattern attention but want to embrace it all at the same time. Contradictory, I know but that’s real life for ya.

Another piece I want to highlight is the newest member of my Rebecca Minkoff family. I’ve wanted one of the beauties from her LOVE Crossbody Collection for quite some time and figured my birthday (last week) was a good excuse for it. Plus, I’ve never seen it in this color before and have yet to find it online! My best advice is to check your nearest Nordstrom and see if it’s in stock because I can’t even begin to describe how delicious it is. And yes, that’s my new adjective in the making.
