I see the charms of the classic little black dress: it's flattering, versatile, and appropriate for a multitude of occasions. But the more I stare at my closet, I've started to realize that it's also a little boring — or at least super predictable. Enter the little pink dress to shake things up...

I love the bow on the back of #2 and the classic silhouette of #7 but it's the sweet scalloped details on #8 I'm most eager to add to my dress collection. Are you a fan of the little pink dress? Which is your favorite?


A few highlights from last week's jaunt to Nantucket...
Family meals and Design Darling topiaries at the dinner table // Morning strolls around town, iced lattés in hand // Quality time with my adorable grandmother (and number one fan) // Wearing this tunic to the beach and to dinner // Traveling home in this dress (and possibly never taking it off)

It requires a four hour drive and a two hour ferry ride but somehow family trips to Nantucket are always worth the while. Note to self: schedule next weekend trip asap!

My very favorite moment of owning my online boutique is that second when I get to press "publish" on a pretty batch of new arrivals. Today I added more than thirty new items, including affordable throw pillows (in every color and pattern under the sun!), chic tortoiseshell glassware, everyone's favorite pens, pom pom throw blankets, and recycled leather notebooks. I hope you love everything as much as I do! Shop all the pretty new things HERE.
