the style letters: Lovely In Lilac

Lovely In Lilac

Dear Readers,

Sometimes, it’s good to be proven wrong. Take this dress from Francesca’s, for example. I’ve spent the majority of my 33 years completely adverse to all things crocheted, yet one look at this dress, and I happily admitted defeat. In the prettiest shade of lilac, this maxi is the perfect mix of romantic and bohemian. The crocheted back is just sexy enough without being too revealing, and I love how the skirt shows just a peek of my favorite lace-up pumps. You win, crochet, you win.

      Thank you so much! The color felt so different from anything else I had in my closet, and I would love to add more pieces in this hue. It just makes me happy to wear it! 🙂

      Thanks for reading!
