Oh yes, that Diane von Furstenberg dress. If you're anything like me, you've been drooling over the gorgeous new DvF line, but especially this dress. It's basically a picnic blanket that went to fashion week. I saw countless bloggers wearing it, meanwhile imagining all the fantastic ways I could wear it.

Then one day, the fashion gods smiled upon me during a Nordstrom Rack visit. I found the dream dress, in my size, for a ridiculous markdown. It's such a special piece, and I bought it just in time to wear to our anniversary dinner.

I wanted to find a way to wear it more casually, so I paired it with my trusty white Vans and a backpack for extra casual vibes. I think it translates surprisingly well... for a floor length silk dress haha.

I've been absent from the blog for the past few weeks due to an exceedingly annoying illness. But currently I'm feeling motivated to get my health and life back on track.

The best thing for getting out of a funk is routine; from waking up to a cup of lemon & ginger tea every morning, to meal prepping healthy things like bone broth and roasted veggies. Investing more time in my well being always repays itself ten-fold.
