Dress: H&M (love this & this ) | Heels: Steve Madden | Bracelets: c/o Charming Charlie | Clutch: old (similar) | Glasses: old (similar)
 
 
In the 2 years that I’ve been blogging now, I’ve created a cluster of looks in my head that rank up there as my all-time favorites. Whether is be the location, or the outfit itself, I have those certain few that I look back on and think “Gosh, that was good”.
 
Today’s post is my latest addition to that “favorites” collection, because hello…THIS DRESS.  What a seriously great find, and shockingly it’s from H&M! The color (which is more mint in person), the cut, the way it flows…all of it is just FAB, FAB, FAB.
 
For now, it sits in my closet waiting for that oh-so special occasion, but I do take it out every once in a awhile to swoon 🙂
 
Do you guys have that special piece that just melts your heart too? I’d love to hear! Thank you so much for reading, and have a great week! – XO
Shauna

    In a year that I have been following and admiring your blog Shauna, this is (also) one of my favorite looks you have ever done. That baby blue maxi dress is dreamy and I love that you shot the pictures by water because it is the perfect match. I wish this dress could be found at H&M currently. Is it current?
