Maybe it’s the journalist in me, but I love finding backstories about the inspiration behind a brand or piece of clothing. If it has a cool story, I’m all the more drawn to it! Such was the case with this printed dress from Shabby Apple. I’m constantly adding to my travel bucket list and Marrakech has been high on the list for some time so I loved that this dress was from the Marrakech collection. The print is inspired by the city of Chefchaouen, known for it’s beautiful blue buildings — seriously, Google it, Marrakech just moved up my list again!
I like dresses like this best for everyday work wear. Most days I’ll pick out my outfit the night before — it just makes for easier mornings and no piles of discarded outfits piled up on the bed! Of course there are days this doesn’t happen so it’s nice to have an arsenal of pieces to fall back on. The cool print on this dress means my outfit doesn’t require many accessories to look complete. I kept it simple with pointed toe pumps and swapped my usual Pashli tote for a box clutch when we went out to dinner after work.
