Last week I took a quick trip to New York City. I haven’t been there in years — in fact, the last time I went was when I was barely pregnant with B. Seven years ago!

There’s just something about that city that simultaneously draws me in and repels me. The fast paced lifestyle, the creativity, the sounds, the signage, the gorgeous architecture and history, the amazing food…there’s just so much to love. But there’s also something so impersonal about it that makes me feel like it could never feel like home.

Anyway, it was a whirlwind trip that left me exhausted, but also incredibly inspired. I came home and spent several hours over the last few days sketching out new clothing designs, organizing my processes and deciding on new scheduling for my work. It was just the boost I needed.

This little white dress is part of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, and it’s available in two other pretty colors. I love this style of dress paired with super skinny jeans and chunky heeled ankle boots, and it was perfect for running around the city and feeling comfortable while still looking put together!
