Printed Dress















Dress: c/o SheIn (under $20)
Boots: JustFab (no longer available), similar here & here
Watch: Marc by Marc Jacobs
I hope you all have had a Happy Easter! Mine was awesome! Over the weekend, my family & friends threw me a surprise party and I totally did not expect it! My birthday was about 10 days ago, so I didn't think a party was going to be planned. Needless to say, it was a great time and I really appreciate everyone's time and effort in planning it!

So sorry I haven't posted in a while. Before treatment, I really did think I could still work, blog, and everything else. Now I realize, in order to get better, I really do have to focus on me. I'm still fighting through side effects, and whenever I get a chance to rest, I take it. Everything else is secondary. I know this is temporary.

Now on to this dress. Even though the dress has dark neutral colors, the prints remind me of Spring for some reason. The style & fit of the dress could contribute to the Spring vibe. I love how it is casual and the sleeves have a retro look to them! Overall, this dress is fun and can be worn to any occasion. I kept this look casual by pairing it with suede over-the-knee-boots.

  11. Happy belated birthday! I've never gotten a surprise party before but I imagine it to be a huge surprise! I've also never tried on a dress like that because I always think I will look like a fool but you are convincing me otherwise! Super gorgeous <3
