Spring Adventures

Good Morning, lovelies! I hope you are all doing well. I had such a lovely day yesterday, especially because it is springtime where I am now and I can wear summer dresses again. The dress featured in this post is from Pink Lily and I am obsessed with it! From the lightweight material to the pattern and how it moves, it's definitely a great staple for spring and summer. Pink Lily carries this dress in sizes XS-2XL and it's a big YES from me!

Other times, I feel a sense of power from dressing in a more professional and elegant manner. This seems to be quite the dichotomy that I have been experiencing since, well, I started working.
