Butterfly Blues

Periwinkle Painted Lady dress, c/o Sugarlips. Vintage woven leather belt and briefcase bag. Floral "spike" headband, DIY.  Short heeled ankle boots, Target

    I was absolutely floored to receive this lovely summer dress from Sugarlips Apparel in the mail a few days ago. I applied for their blogger program  and the dress was naturally my first pick. Although they have a gorgeous skirt in the same fascinating, subtle butterfly print (I usually have to tell people that butterflies are incorporated into the pattern, but I like it that way!), I knew I had to have the dress in the end. 
     My favorite thing about the dress is how it is such a standalone piece. Ordinarily, I feel the compulsion to accessorize as much as I can get away with. But I felt like I should keep it extremely simple with this little number. I can only rave about the dress so much, but I will reveal an interesting tidbit: the butterflies on the dress are almost the exact color of my bedroom walls...my favorite color ever.

P.S. I cut my own bangs just a bit before these pictures!

This dress is so pretty! I love the blue butterfly print. You look so feminine and gorgeous in it. Those boots were a fantastic choice to pair with it too.
