desert oasis.


Zara palm tree print dress | H&M patent skinny belt | Zara suede court heels | Jason Wu for Target straw classic flap handbag | Ray-Ban wayfarer sunglasses

Quirky prints tend to fascinate me, whether it is animal, plant, or inanimate object motifs. I have mustered up quite a reserve of animal printed items that collectively are beginning to look like a mirage. So to veer off the animal print trek but still staying on course, I found this palm tree printed dress. It is so perfect to welcome the summer sun with. Still a few months off, but somewhat fitting to wear during these days as the weather has been rebelling against atmospheric norms. I am not really envisioning temperatures that would conjure up images of sand dunes and cacti, but at this given moment anything corresponding to the palm tree theme will suffice my thirst for summer days. This also could stem from the fact that my wanderlust has kicked in, and I, the nomad, am so ready for a much awaited vacation. Paradise, here I come.
