This dress is made from the softest fabric ever. It feels like a favorite nightgown that you’ve had forever. Kind of a comforting feeling. Also nice to have a long, breathable piece that works for warm days, yet easily adapts for crisper weather. Dare I say I’m excited for the coming season?

B surprised me with this pretty necklace. Isn’t he a nice husband? I love that it looks like a lace collar. Asymmetry is always a plus, too.

I love me a good comfy, pretty maxi! They feel almost criminal to wear, almost like you're getting away with wearing PJs to work. I love this color on you as well and your husband IS amazing for getting you this rocking necklace!

Nice dress, almost look like velvet. Hope you survived the earthquake, and maybe start thinking about emergency supplies, with the hurricane coming to the East Coast….

This dress really suits you. I love the color and length. I wish I could wear maxi dresses with the same elegance. Shorter dresses seem to suit me instead.
