You know when you walk into a store, or walk past a window and something just stops you in your tracks, and you stare in complete adoration? Well, that’s how I felt about this dress by Addition Elle, simply named the “Reversible Sleeveless Printed Maxi Dress”, but I lovingly call it the Botanical Beauty.
With such a vivid explosion of tropical blooms contrasting on that solid black background, its exuberance called to my senses.
If you happen to feel a little shy about your arms sometimes, like I do, and it depends on the day to be honest, this dress can be paired with almost any color shrug, and I decided on this fresh pink one also from Addition Elle. I liked the look with and without the shrug.
I also like to wear belts – they are not for everyone, and again, do what makes you feel good. For me, I like how they cinch the smallest part of my body (the waist), and also add style and edge. But the look would have been great without the belt as well.
I added a simple necklace from Ardene. With such a bold print, I didn’t need a statement piece that would compete with the dress, and I wanted to pick up the black and silver from the belt.
I can’t wait to wear this lovely Botanical Beauty again – and did I mention, it has pockets??? Such simple things make us happy don’t they?
And my trusted lace up sandals from Penningtons that I featured in a previous post here were perfect for this outfit, and for comfort.
