Today marks the start of the Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale (5/24-6/4), so I figured it was the perfect time to snap some photos of this gorgeous maxi dress I picked up a few weeks ago! I've been agonizing over it because it's perfect, but without any event in particular to wear it to I'm not thrilled with the price. I'm all about buying fewer items with my monthly clothing budget these days, but it's still pushing the boundaries of what I normally spend. I got inspired to order it after wearing a similar maxi for an adventurous travel day in Capri. I could see wearing it in a similar way, with flats for vacation, or even to church or an impromptu brunch date. If you wear it enough times, was it really that expensive to begin with? Will the investment be worth it? Time will surely tell...
