You Can Never Go Wrong With Sparkles!

We’ve been in New York for the past few days and have been soaking up every bit of the city. Both Ryan and I absolutely love it here and it’s the place we feel most at home at other than our actual home in Florida! It’s no secret that a home in NYC, even if it’s just a teeny tiny studio, is high on our bucket list… so when we are here visiting for work we end up spending the entire time dreaming about living here! There is something about the city that is just so dreamy and I don’t think we will ever get over it.

On Sunday, while doing a little window shopping in Soho, we walked by this dress in a Joie boutique window and I was instantly drawn to it. Truthfully, we were actually looking for a dress for me to wear to the Olay event (see my instagram stories for more!) last night, and I had totally and completely given up. I tried on a handful of things on Sunday afternoon and nothing quite worked, but when I spotted this one from across the street, I knew!

I’m not one for an impulse purchase and truthfully nothing makes me more anxious than just buying something on a whim, but this dress is an exception to that rule. I felt like a sparkly fairy princess and really, is there a better feeling?!

Plus I had packed shoes, a bag, and lipstick that just so happened to match. It felt like kismet! Also, It was really fun to feel just a bit frivolous!

The dress itself is the perfect Fall transition dress with it’s pretty muted florals and flecks of shimmer. I have a feeling I’ll be wearing this for many months to come! Plus the cinched ruched waistline and button color make this frock extra feminine and delicate. And if that wasn’t enough it also comes in a pretty navy as well.

If you are looking for a special dress that will sparkle you right into Fall, look no further. I promise this one will do the trick!

    Could you talk about how you keep your hair like that? I loooove how you have pieces hanging down. I have similar hair to yours.. soft and silky.. which is a curse when it comes to curling your hair and keeping hair in place.. as I’m sure you know! Your Bumble and Bumble texturizing spray recommendation helped me so much. But still when I try to do my hair like yours and have pieces hanging down… no matter how much texturizing spray or hairspray I use, the pieces just end up hanging straight down in my eyes! Drives me bonkers.
