You wouldn't be expecting foggy, dark days in So Cal in August but that's exactly how it looked this past weekend (not that we're complaining too much given the one hundred degrees days coming our way).
In the spur of a moment, we decided to go out for Happy Hour in the beautiful La Jolla.
I needed a boost of confidence, and an easy fix for that is a nice outfit (let's be honest, a good outfit does make us feel better). Truth is, it's been a little tough here lately with life throwing all sorts of things at us, so we needed some relaxation time.
We first had to see the place that brings us peace - the ocean - nothing makes us forget about our day-to-day problems faster than the beautiful ocean. Everything seems small in comparison to this immense blue.
Provence, that's what this dress makes me think of. It transports me to a garden full of fragrant roses, and I, wearing this dress, take a stroll, inhaling the sweet smell of pink roses covered in drops of the morning dew...
But since I am nowhere near Southern France, I, instead, smelled the ocean while wearing this gorgeous dress - trust me, it smelled just as good.
Maybe it is the ruffles, or its length, or simply its soft touches of blue and white, but I adore this piece of clothing. It may sound shallow, but it's the truth - we all have material things that bring us happiness, along with all the spiritual or whatever else makes you happy.
I found it, like 90% of my wardrobe, by chance and, even though it was a little bit pricier than what I would spend on a "casual" dress, I simply did not want to part with it.
It wasn't the name on its tag, it was the delicate fabric (and it is delicate), and the style that draw me to it.
