Ever since I was a little kid, there have been three things that have never changed: I love playing dress-up (though I suppose now that I'm an adult it's referred to as "modeling"), I love floral print, and believe it or not, I have always thought shoes are overrated.
By this I mean when given the opportunity to go barefoot I will 100% take it. I've just always liked the feeling of grass beneath my feet, and though I'd never turn down a cute pair of shoes, I find them restricting and just very uncomfortable in general. So in today's outfit of the day, I decided to go shoeless while traipsing around the beautiful grounds of my old elementary school, Mount Gallitzin Academy.
As I'm sure you know, I'm obsessed with ModCloth and all things floral, so when I was lucky enough to be invited to an exclusive press event for their IRL Tour last month, this is one of the pieces I snagged! As soon as Lindsay showed all of us this piece I immediately fell in love with it. From it's retro vibe to the rich colors I just new I had to add this piece to my fall wardrobe.
The other thing I thought was adorable about this dress was it's flared sleeves which is a big trend this season. The reason I like it so much is because much like the bohemian look I styled a few posts ago, this style just gives the dress a more whimsical look. And what can I say, I've always wished I was born in the 1960s due to the culture, music, and fashion of that era, so naturally I was delighted by this piece.
Much like my love of floral print, I also love floral scents. So when Influenster informed me that they were sending me a full size bottle of Flowerbomb to try out I was thrilled! This perfume smells absolutely amazing. With hints of roses and orchids, every time I wear it I get compliments on how good I smell. So it's actually became my new favorite fragrance.
