Have you ever "earned" a dress? My husband and I had a deal that if I helped him with his work project, he would buy me a dress of my choosing (and of course within reason). It took me a while to pick (just) one but I settled on this beautiful Dawning Maxi from Anthro (details and link below). I matched it with a few of my favorite accessories and flats. Pretty comfortable for a Summer evening in front of a blooming wall of flowers.
