Florals For Spring? Groundbreaking.
I am currently writing this post as I relax in my room in Cancun, Mexico! I may be in summer mode for the moment but Spring is in full swing, which means that this dress will be on me for the rest of the season! Seeing this dress on StyleWe, I knew I had to have it. The colors, the fit, and those bell sleeves, I was sold!
My title for this post had to pay homage to Meryl Streep as Miranda in 'The Devil Wears Prada', one of my favorite movies ever, (I've seen it 10 times). Nothing gets my style juices flowing quite like watching that movie. I was so inspired as a young girl to be just like Andy. She was smart, driven, determined, and beautiful yet still humble. She worked so hard to earn her place at her "dream job" but when she finally had it all, she realized that it was not everything she needed to be fulfilled. I realize I've gone on a tangent with this but hear me out...

How many times in a day do we think, "if I had the perfect job, perfect boyfriend, or perfect look, I would be happy?" While we may achieve those things one day (or appear to achieve them online), only our true passions can fulfill our need for happiness. While this dress is undoubtedly gorgeous, the shoes match perfect, the hairstyle highlights the accessories,..don't be fooled that a perfect look equals happiness. What I love about styling is the confidence it brings me to walk into a room knowing that I creatively dressed to how I was feeling that day. On this day, wearing this dress, I felt powerful, much like Andy. I strutted in my heels, I twirled in this skirt. I owned this look. Not because of the clothes but because of how they made me feel. Pretty and feminine...a true #girlygirl #lotd.
A woman's best accessory is her smile, and a cute dress and killer heels can only make it better! If you guys liked this look make sure you let me know in the comments below.
