I bought this dress on sale (as I do everything from Anthropologie), thinking that it would be more useful for the next summer when I'm suffering in the steamy Texas weather. While I'm hoping that we'll be seeing only fall-like weather from now on, it's always nice for things to be useful right away instead of being squirreled away for "someday".
In addition to the lightweight fabric, I may have persuaded myself to buy this dress because the print was compared to a Monet painting. I have a pretty big artist crush on Monet and try to stop by the area where his paintings are in the Art Institute in Chicago every time I've gone in.
