Chance Encounters

Neiman Marcus Dress

And there isn’t a better time to learn this lesson than when you’re traveling. With a drive from Rome to Florence there were a few encounters that served as a firm reminder that sometimes we cannot control things out of our control. Whether it’s getting holed up in a car for an hour during a vicious hail storm, or stumbling aimlessly across the most delicious gelato I’ve had in my life; there were moments in Italy that I will always carry close to my heart. One night, in particular, offered the most beautiful sunset over the Ponte Vecchio that you couldn’t help but stop and breathe in for a while. Just as the sun began to rest upon the horizon, a drop fell on my shoulder … and then another. Another chance encounter that pleasantly surprised me was finding a maxi dress that I didn’t feel swallowed up whole in. The silky feeling against my legs in this 10 Crosby Derek Lam Dress left me wanting to wear it day in and day out. It shouldn’t be a surprise that I ended up wearing this dress 3 out of 7 nights in Italy {ha!}.

  1. I would have fallen for this beautiful maxi dress, too (maxi dresses are so feminine, aren’t they?). And you’re so right about things out of our control from time to time in our life, including things like this dress you found :’)
