Never knew that in the midst of falling/sinking in the dirt, getting caught in twigs and running away from bugs in the woods can create such pretty images….thanks to N. Reed for these photos!

This dress is probably my favorite (well, I’m kind of bias) for this summer. It’s hard to tell in these photos, but I made the front slightly shorter than the back so it’s easy to walk when wearing flats in real life, but still has the illusion of a glamorous full length dress. I love the high slit, strappy laced-up backless and front keyhole details. However, my favorite thing about this is the print… it is on fire! :)

 Dear St. John,

You may be the smallest of the U.S. Virgin Islands, but you are a natural wonder of luminous crescent bays and miles of pristine parkland, fresh-scented hiking trails, and mossy peaks with panoramic views. We love all of your beaches, well at least the ones we’re able to visit on our lovely 8-day stay at the beautiful Gallows Point Resort, which was a short 3 minute walk to town. The quaint little town of Cruz Bay has everything from bars right on the beach, market to buy groceries, various fruits and rum stand on the streets, local pizza joints to fancy restaurants with jaw dropping views… but what we love the most was the chill and secluded feel where we can just unplug from the world (except for Instagram) and drift off into paradise.¬† Well, until the rain came and brought the mosquitoes who sort of ate us alive every night. Sorry for cussing you, we still love you and we’ll remember to bring loads of repellent next time. :)

Until then, we’ll miss you. XOXO
