Just For Fun






Dress (JCPenney); Belt (H&M); Shoes (Nine West)
Photography (David R. Martinson)

This dress is literally just for fun... I didn't get it for a certain occasion or for a specific reason. I fell in love with the maxi style and multi colored stripes and felt the "just for fun" category of my wardrobe could use more pieces.  And the best part is that I instantly feel happier wearing it! In fact I will blame this "just for fun" mentality for my last grocery trip where among other things I left with root beer flavored milk (try it, it's amazing), cake confetti ice cream, and Kellog's new Krave Chocolate cereal (basically corn puffs with chocolate in the middle).  Dessert for dinner?  How fun is that? :)
