The Most Beautiful Dress I've Ever Met

Now, take me to the Amalfi Coast.

Pairing a pretty dress with boots comes as naturally to me as eating chocolate (I'm a self-confessed chocoholic). I consider myself very feminine, yet prefer to avoid the overly 'girly', so adding a tough element to anything 'prim and proper' has become my style mantra during my twenties. Got a frilly top? Pair it with boots. A pink skirt? Boots. A flowing dress? Yep, you guessed it. Boots.

Truth be told, I don't believe I've ever met a more beautiful floral dress. Despite its garden oasis print, pleated skirt and lace trims, it has somehow avoided being a springtime cliché. Instead, the round neck, oversized silhouette and gold eyelet details create a very special statement piece. Styled with my forest green clutch bag and faux suede boots (also worn here), this is a luxurious daytime outfit that would fit in perfectly along the Amalfi coastline.

On another note, who else can't believe that the Easter long weekend is already over? Brad and I actually had a super busy four days, spending as much time as possible with our families (and eating chocolate, of course!). I'm sure my fellow chocoholics would understand my love of a weekend filled with chocolate eggs and bunnies, right? You should see our stash - thanks to our fam-bam!

I almost feel like I need a weekend after my weekend to rest up and prepare for the week ahead. I most certainly wouldn't say no to one, personally, but instead I forced myself awake at 5:30AM this morning to get a head start on my never ending to-do list. Thank goodness for coffee.

I'm wearing: Thurley print dress, Oroton Ashbury bag and Billini boots.

  1. That dress looks beautiful with you and perfect styling here as per usual! You're so right though, this dress needs to be worn on the Amalfi coast or somewhere like Cinque Terre.

  4. Amazing dress to make the spring enjoyment flawless. But with cool clothing, it's also important to take care fo skin from harsh sun rays and dust for which a suitbale skin cream is must.

  5. It's a beautiful dress! I'm a chocoholic too and coffee lover.
    I try to force myself to wake up early, but I usually wake up 7am.


  6. Love the fun pattern! You look great :)

  9. I would definitely not pair it with these boots (but that's my personal style), but I love the dress!! It reminds me of Croatian National Costume for some reason and I love it :)
