Golden Hour is my favorite time of day. Even though the sun is setting everything seems more vibrant than it does at high noon when the sun washes out everything in a white light. The golden haze that covers everything just before sunset feels warm and inviting. On this evening, while on a date night with my hubby Brian, the sky seemed particularly enticing so B and I gathered up our things from the restaurant and headed to this beautiful field of flowers to soak up the last bit of light.
Sometimes clothes are so special that they can make you feel something the moment you lay your eyes on it. This dress did exactly that for me. I have always been a lover of maxi dresses so when I saw this one with the gorgeous wrap detail and full sleeves I knew it had been made for me. The designer of this beautiful dress is Christy Dawn. I came across her designs via social media and was so drawn to the simplicity of the silhouettes and the soft feminine fabrics (right up my alley) and knew that I had to have a few pieces.
Christy Dawn is based out of Los Angeles, California where each dress is handmade by local artisans using deadstock fabric. Only a certain amount are made and they are then replenished once they have sold through. I was on the waitlist for this dress to come back into stock and late one evening my phone lit up with news that it was available again. I don’t think I have ever purchased anything so fast in my life!
To add to my excitement the dress arrived in a cedar box with a couple of stocks of lavender… absolutely heavenly!
The floral print on the dress felt like a perfect match with the wild flowers that covered the field. My sandals were not quite as ideal for stomping through the tall grass, but they did look great at dinner. I always reach for maxi dresses in the summer because they feel so elegant but they are the coolest things to wear when the temperatures are reaching triple digits.
Christy Dawn has so many beautiful styles for the summer that range from the classic blue and white stripe to gingham. The Bergen dress is currently sold out but if you use this link you can sign up to be alerted when the dress comes back into stock.
Have you fallen this hard for a piece of clothing before, or is it just me!? I hope you have an amazing weekend! Thank you for stopping by! xo Bryn
