Botanical

After a mini vacation we had last week, it was nice to come home with a surprise waiting outside our doorstep. I hurried inside to open the parcel and here it goes..... A pretty botanical print dress. I adore the prints and just a perfect summer dress and a welcome addition to my collections. Originally, it was on the longer side but I manage to have only a tiny alterations to make it work for my frame. I have on a fitted shorts underneath just in case I forgot and bend over, lol.  Being on a hot and humid day gave me an excuse to wear it right away for an appointment to my allergist. 
Funny how after my husband was done with the photos, I made a comment how I so totally blended in with the background. Didn't even notice it until after :). But he said yes you do. 
  Monday's outfit was all about monochromatic with some touch of colorful playful fringes. 
Today, let's go with the prints. The best thing about this Zara's doppel ganger dress is that the prints are symmetrical all throughout, the material is thin enough for some hot days(not see though thin) and less to almost no alterations needed. 
Have a fun Wednesday everyone.
Thank you from the heart.
xoxo
Sam
