day dreaming (in prints)

“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you’ve imagined.” -Henry David Thoreau

If I could live in one clothing item forever, it would have to be printed dresses. I adore whimsical, dreamlike prints and the memories and thoughts that prints can evoke; this print is absolutely no exception. This whimsical print has me dreaming of days past, vacations to come (hopefully), evening walks in Venice, and all-around adventures that have yet to be experienced. I’m day dreaming in this dress…heading towards the direction of my dreams.

Fashion Huntress tips:

1) I love a printed scarf with a statement necklace and printed dress. For me, it’s just enough of a good thing. If I’m going to wear a scarf with a necklace and printed top, I generally wear a thin scarf versus a heavy flannel which can weigh down the look. You can see here how this Paris scarf gave the look a breezy feel and nice depth without looking like “too much.”

2) Oasap has really great pieces for amazing prices. You can find this dress here. I also adore this version here. For $15-$25, you cannot beat how unique the dresses are. There’s currently a sale for an additional 20-25% off all items, including sale prices. In order to ensure the dress would fit (as I was shopping online), I pulled out my tape measure and, sure enough, the dress was definitely the size that was listed online. Additionally, I found the quality of the fabric to be quite good. This dress has a nice brocade/stiff feeling to it that gives the dress great shape, while still being comfortable. A special thank you to Oasap for the opportunity to check out their amazing clothes. I’ll definitely be back for more unique finds!

Anyone else have a love of romantic prints? Tips for styling? Thanks so much for stopping by, readers! I appreciate it so much!
