This dress makes me so happy. It’s just the prettiest! What I love about a great maxi is that you can dress it up or down. Pair it with flat gold sandals and a sunhat for a trip to the market, or dress it up with bold earrings and heels for an evening out. Easy, breezy, but still a little bit dramatic. And this one is actually a pretty great deal, at $158. It runs true to size… I’m wearing a 6. We should also talk about the bag. Several of you have commented/emailed me asking for a more affordable option and I found one – this is $73 which is about half the price of the original Cult Gaia. I can’t personally vouch for the quality but it looks verrrrry similar.
In other news, today I’m off to the Hamptons for the rest of the weekend. I was fortunate enough to be invited to Jonathan Adler’s home for a look at his new collaboration with Clinique, and then the rest of the time I will be on a press trip with Aperol! Be sure to follow along on Instagram stories… I’m sure there will be lots of fun to share.
