an ocean of violets in bloom

I’ve had When Doves Cry stuck in my head for at least a week. I remember when I was younger my parents saw Prince on his Musicology tour and I wanted to go so badly. My parents brought back a CD for me to listen to and I used to imagine what that concert would have been like. He has always been a huge part of my musical life. I love to put on his music and think back to singing Raspberry Beret with my mom and feel the nostalgia.

I have a similar feeling when wearing the dress in this look. I bought it when I was in high school, and it is a vintage sixties dress that I bought with my very first paycheck from my first job working in a Subway. I used to wear it all the time to school with red lipstick and my bangs pinned up. After moving out and a few years in college, I rediscovered it in a closet at my dad’s house, and putting it on again after all that time was so meaningful to me, and it feels great to wear it again.

I’m wearing my Warby Parker sunglasses here, and I paired this look with my favorite mules, a vintage handmade circle bag that I found in a thrift store recently, and a bandana around my neck. You can shop similar products at the top of this post!

I love this look because I feel this is the most authentic to who I am, and it’s nice to be at a point where I can dress authentically and share it with you and the rest of the world 🙂

Until next post. xx
