I'm Your Little Butterfly


As soon as I slipped on this dress from eShakti, I couldn't help humming this song to myself.
Dress: c/o eShakti   Vest: Forever 21   Cardigan & Tights: Target   Heels: Rue 21   Necklace: Debs   
When eShakti gave me the opportunity to review one of their items, I was so pleased. I've seen this brand worn by so many of my blogger favorites and friends! It was difficult to pick out one item from their site (sooo many pretty things!), but I knew I wanted to find something functional for day-to-day wear. So I settled on this dress. Its both pretty and easy to wear for a day look. The butterfly print is just lovely! I adore how the butterflies grace this fit-and-flare design, making it impossible not to feel cute wearing it. 
What I really like is how versatile this dress is. I've already created multiple winter looks and prepared some spring/summery ones as well! It'll translate well through out the year. 
For this post, I made it really autumnal, didn't I? Haha, this dress was made for the fall! Rusty orange and burgundy go perfectly with it. 
For now, I have to layer it up since it's cold outside. Although for your sake, I shed the vest and cardigan so you could see the back of the dress. Its got a little dip hem along the spine that's such a pretty surprise!
Right, so here's a little bit from my life lately. 
I love where I work. The atmosphere is laid back and fun. We'll all be efficient when we need to be, but other than that, you can find most of us goofing around. Especially during closing hours. The cooks will blast the pop station and sing along raucously to tunes by Bruno Mars and Pink (which is hilarious if you could see these tough, tattooed guys). Anyway, one of them whipped up a tray of freshly baked cinnamon rolls to the front where I was working. Goodness, these babies were fresh out of the oven and coated in a thick, sweet syrup. They were, in short, ooey-gooey amazing. Al (the cook) kept saying I should take another and said, "You look like J-Lo, one more won't hurt you any!" 
Ah man, these guys I work with...they know how to make a girl smile. :)

Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.
(James 1:2-4)

(btw, you are a beautiful butterfly, Miss Linda)

That dress is way awesome and reminds me of butterflies sooooaring into the magical sunset~ And that collar is too neat, and the color of your tights and vest are super fun, too. This is such a neat autumnal look! You and your fun colors.

Awe, I'm glad that your workplace is so lovely. It really helps to cheer you up, doesn't it? :)

How awesome that you have such a fun place to work, that always makes it a little more enjoyable.

I can see why you love this dress! That is just such a interesting and gorgeous pattern, I love how the color changes towards the bottom, it seems like it will be an easy dress to remix. (And the fit is fantastic! I love how this company lets you customize the fit, that's so nice being able to adjust the lengths and sleeve styles.) It looks really lovely on you!
