pretty, pretty purple…

Hi-Hi, Everyone! Comment ça va? 

I cannot believe that the final day of July is upon us… this month flew by in the blink of an eye (yay for rhymes!). Excluding today, 11 full jours à Toulouse to go! The heat here has been utterly unbearable as of late; there have also been thunder and lightning storms galore (I’m not especially a fan). Is it Rome time yet, is it Rome time yet? I have not been to Roma for nearly a decade… at nine years old I visited Italy for the first time with my father and maternal grandmother… this trip with my lovely mother is sure to bring back all the memories. It’s always a ‘lil bittersweet, isn’t it, returning to destinations you’ve been to in the past? Ah, well.

Let’s chat dresses now, shall we?

This violet one in particular has become an absolute favorite of mine recently. It is no secret that I adore purple and delicate, frilly fabrics… it’s truly as though this elegant robe was made just for me. Unfortunately, it isn’t particularly practical for everyday wear, but this fact in no way dictates how often I’ll certainly be pulling it from my closet over the course of this coming year. Even in the autumn, me thinks, paired with the proper cold-weather accessories, of course.

Ooh, and I acquired it from Modcloth. Obviously. 😉

Au revoir for now, all. I’m so excited for the beautiful month ahead!

    Such a beautiful dress! Just right for wearing to a garden party or the library or the supermarket – anywhere, really! We need more prettiness in the world, and that is very pretty indeed.

      Aww, thank you so much, Sarah. I couldn’t agree more. <3
