This dress is pretty much the most “Princess Martha” dress I own. It’s classic but chic, it’s detailed but simple, it twirls beautifully yet it can be taken seriously. I love love love this dress. My most favorite thing, it’s cotton with just a little hint of stretch. I know, who knew something so “basic” could make me feel so luxe but honestly, there is something so fabulous about authentic fabrics.

Perhaps I heard it from an older, cooler girl and I took it seriously. Fast forward to today and I stand here (actually I’m sitting) to tell you there are NO FASHION RULES!! Seriously.
