old favorite

A few years back when Zara finally made its Boston debut, I couldn't decide what to stock my closet with first. I settled on this boho chic dress, and to this day it is truly an old favorite -- one of the first dresses I grab when I'm in a hurry.

Shades of bright blue scream for a punch of white and bright coral. I love the easiness of this dress -- so much so that I wore it two days in a row -- a life safer for those crazy hot days we've just had. These sandals from Zara are my new favorite. Not only are they ridiculously comfortable, they add that touch of effortlessness an effortless dress needs, while this intricate Aero bag makes this look feel special.
