Zara fringe dress

Although I should be gearing up today for some exciting Halloween events in NYC, my current state of mind still feels like its on Rio de Janeiro time zone - mainly due to the fact that I now consider that blessed city my home away from home. These shots were taken during our tranquil, 3-day tour through B├║zios (a posh resort made famous by the legendary Brigitte Bardot). There's even a monumental statue of the actress erected in her honor. We stayed at the heavenly sweet and rather stylish guest house, Pousada Vila Pitanga - I highly recommend it if you ever plan on taking a holiday there. It was like magically stepping into a feature-story from Elle Decor.

I packed lightly during our stay, yet I wondered if it was even necessary to pack at all, considering that I lived in this Zara dress (which I thankfully spotted on clearance!) throughout our little holiday. I'm not sure what I admire more - it's soft, gently pink hue, wispy fringe tassles or the fact that I'm able to wear it just as it is with some rugged weared-down boots, or paired up with jeans or cut-offs (with a slight tuck in the front for a subtle asymmetrical shape). This little lovely piece can go from frilly and girly to bohemian edgy in three seconds tops!

Happy Halloween everyone!
