Secret Garden

eshakti polka dot summer dress

Welcome to my little "secret garden".  Okay, it's not technically what I'd consider a garden, and it's hardly a secret since this area is part of my front yard.  Either way, this is one of my favorite parts of my house.  I like how the previous owners created this little section off to the side of the house filled with beautiful shrubs, vegetation, and a stone path.  An outdoor bench we already owned fit perfectly with it and created a relaxing spot to enjoy the goings-on of our neighborhood.

This spot was the perfect place to take pictures of this polka-dotted dress I received from eShakti.  When I spotted it (no pun intended. hardy har har) on the site--I knew it was the one!  There is nothing more flattering than an A-line dress.  It creates the perfect silhouette for every body type.  I also really like the retro-vibe this dress gives.

If you haven't heard of eShakti, it's an online clothing store that sales made-to-order, customizable dresses and other clothing items.  They have a lot of cute, very "lady-like" dresses to choose from, and I have a feeling this won't be my last.  Definitely check them out HERE.  Plus, when you sign-up with your email address (or Facebook), you get $25 off of your first order!

Happy Monday!

P.S.  Can we all pretend to not notice how completely frizzed out my hair became 2 seconds after I stepped outside? kThx. It's what I get for trying to wear straightened natural hair a day after a rainstorm. It's a journey, not a destination, folks.

  1. Love this summer outfit and your outdoor space! Work girl!

  2. Just lovely Nik! The dress looks and fits you perfectly!

  3. Super cute! I love your hair style.

  4. Those heels look so comfy and I love the big *humidity ain't my friend* hair! I think that its a conspiracy because EVERY single time that I straighten my hair it rains or is unbearably humidity the next day!
