I love this picture; my son is riiiight on the edge of being a full-on boy who doesn’t want his mom to carry him around and kiss him, but right now? I get all the snuggles.
Also god I love this dress.
I’ve owned it for about a decade – it’s a Nieves Lavi that I bought at Intermix right after I graduated from college, and I wore it pretty much constantly during my at-the-clurrrrb days; it’s one of those dresses that I can just reach for and know I’ll feel good in it. And then, about five years ago, the blousy drop-waist, belled-sleeve thing started feeling a little dated, and I stopped wearing it.
My favorite thing in the world is throwing stuff out, but some things – like perfect dresses, even when they feel like they’ve fallen out of style for the time being – are worth holding on to.
Speaking of fall florals – of which I think my dress is a pretty great example – this is what I would like to wear right now:
I mean, I won’t, because it’s a solid 75 degrees here and because I can’t imagine what, exactly, I might do that would require me to wear a dress like that, but in my fantasies? Totally in sweaters and floaty chiffon things.
Also ugh, those boots are so good. Why, Chloe? Whyyyyy?
