Summer Florals | Shift Dress & Pale Pink Trench Coat

Happy Thursday, everyone!

Shift dresses can be tricky because they easily make you lose shape and look boxy. If you’re not going for a relaxed fit, they aren’t always the most flattering piece of clothing. But I grew to love shift dresses over the years, and found that a skinny waist belt usually helps to prevent this problem. ;)

I was so excited to wear this floral and ivory shift dress to a Flower Piano installation that my boyfriend and I checked out during our date last month. For 12 days straight in San Francisco’s Botanical Garden, visitors were encouraged to sit down and play on one of the 12 pianos displayed around the garden or to spread out a picnic blanket and enjoy the performances. I had a deep appreciation for piano music ever since I was 11 years old when I started playing. It was an inspiring sight to see the community getting together and enjoying the beautiful outdoor music.

To complete my outfit, I accessorized and layered with pastel and neutral hues, as well as with some chic, pearly baubles. I’d been on the hunt for a pale pink trench coat and finally found the perfect one at Express! I love that it's not too thick but still keeps you warm. I tend to go for shorter trenches like this one, that don’t go past my knee.

Also, I've been carrying around my Kate Spade radio clutch non-stop lately. It's such a fun piece and makes for a great conversation starter! I love that this clutch has a hideaway chain that easily converts it into a bag.

Thank you so much for reading. Hope you all have a great rest of the week!
