This dreamy, light-as-air dress makes me feel straight out of a Rococo painting. The strong, pale blue color decorated with delicate white florals is heavenly, but what really separates this dress is it’s stunning shape, fitted and tied at the bust and then flowing out into layers of ruffles that swish with every step. I feel unbelievably romantic while wearing this, and to heighten the romance I wore pink lip color and a pair of light blue and gold jeweled wedge sandals.
A dress so magical and perfect for twirling in is made to be worn while one of my favorite dreamy songs plays-“For You” by Bruce Springsteen. I’ve heard people say before that Bob Dylan is a poet while Bruce is a storyteller, but the poetry in this song sure gives Bob a run for his money. The lyrics in “For You” make my heart ache with romance, there’s so much depth and soul to them and when paired with the music, it hits me so deeply. And when I need a reminder of my strength, I’ll play the lines “Didn’t you think I knew that you were born with the power of a locomotive?” and “Your strength is devastating in the face of all these odds,” and they really do evoke a renewed inner determination. This is another one of those songs that I envision myself dancing to with the love of my life, so happy and overwhelmed in the bliss of the moment.
She’s all I ever wanted
Dresses and songs like this make me feel this infectious sense of happiness and longing, like all I want to do is twirl through life, always following my heart.
