The French phrase “raison d’être” meaning “reason for being” is the inspiration for this post’s title. When you discover that love is the reason to exist, everything else will fall into place.
I spent the weekend celebrating love with a college friend, celebrating her last days as a single gal preparing for her upcoming wedding. I was also able to spread love to my mom by spending some time with her and delivering an early birthday present that she absolutely loved.
Speaking of love, I’m enchanted by the simpleness of this printed shift dress from Amour Vert. Not only do I love the dress, I love what Amour Vert stands for. The brand name translates to “green love” in French. They are a company that is committed to being the gold standard for ethical products and sustainable practices in the fashion industry. Companies who think critically about the cost of manufacturing and its effect on the people and environment score points in my book. The quality of the silk is great and the colors are gorgeous. I decided to pair this dress with heels to elevate the outfit. These Dolce Vita coral sandals are my favorite shoes as of late. The color adds another dimension to the outfit which is perfect for me since I’m always down for a pop of color.
Nothing like an easy printed shift dress to make weekend dressing super easy. Pieces like this are great for your wardrobe because you can just throw it on and go. (Make sure it’s not wrinkled though!) Pair with colorful heels or a lace up sandal for added interest. This dress will even transition into fall with tights and a cute bootie.

So tell me what is your raison d’être/reason for being?
