Shaping Up

I love a fun, playful geometric print, which is exactly what this shirt dress from Anthropologie has to offer! I fell in love with the dress as soon as it landed in the new arrival section on Anthropologie's website (especially because it's from one of my favorite designers, Corey Lynn Calter), however, I waited a little bit to buy it. What was it that finally got me to make the purchase? Well, after seeing it featured on Instagram, I was smitten by how great it looked and it was then that I knew it had to be mine! I guess that just shows you the power of influencers!

My discovery of this wall was also a result of the influence of social media, as one of my favorite Pasadena Instagram accounts featured it months ago and inspired me to go seek it out! Much like my dress, the mural features a host of playful shapes and designs, which makes it the perfect backdrop for what I'm wearing! I wore the dress to a lovely dinner that featured champagne pairings with each course. I guess I like to think of my outfit and mural pairings as something similar to a chef figuring out what wine to pair with a meal. Perhaps the pairings don't always work out but when they do, it's so satisfying!
