Lately my style has been fluctuating between jeans and a tee and frilly, feminine to the max dresses. This look is one of the latter. The dress is a lovely dark mauve with a frill about the bottom, slightly puffed sleeves, and a wrap front. The length of the sleeves is one of my favorite parts. The dress would look too youthful if the sleeves were capped, but if they were full length, it wouldn’t be a practical summer dress. I teamed it with my always favorite Topshop boots, for a thoroughly British inspired look. Both the dress and the shoes are pieces that make me feel great as soon as I put them on. They’re “special” pieces, and are almost magical in their ability to cheer me up.
