A year ago I don’t think i’d be able to imagine myself wearing a dress like this, but i’m so happy that I impulse bought this earlier this year. My favorite thing about personal style is seeing how it changes without me even noticing until I take the time to reflect. I used to hate long dresses and skirts with a passion yet here I am with a handful or midi/maxi skirts and dresses in my closet.
One thing that has remained the same, and I think will for quite some time, is my love for items that aren’t fussy. This dress definitely has a bit going on, with it’s open back (that i adore), pleats, polka dot pattern, and billowy sleeves, but it’s still something that I can throw on without thinking about it. It’s effortlessly romantic, which surprisingly is something that I’ve been drawn to at the moment.
Honestly if it wasn’t for the open back, I probably would have never tried this dress on. While it is pretty from the front, i think it comes off as too sweet in a way and the open back adds the right amount of playfulness which makes it a winner in my book.
I’m bummed to have to pack this a way soon since the material is so light and not warm enough for winter, but you’ll definitely be seeing this again with the first signs of spring.
