Little White Dress Challenge, Day Seven: Roses (Dresses) are Rad


As the Little White Dress Challenge continues into Days 7 and beyond, I’m still not having too much trouble utilizing my organic cotton Bodkin dress from Kaight in a new and different ways (read more about the challenge here). This morning I just couldn’t walk out the door without a little color of me, and because I absolutely love this flowered dress I choose to throw it on using the little white dress as a vest, paired with TOMS for my feet.

New York is one of the most diverse and dynamic cities, but when the summer blues drop in on me, I have some fantastic friends to fall back on. Whether it be taking my first trip up to Coney Island, running in the park, or just spending an extra ten minutes in bed chatting, it’s nice to have mature, strong, women friends as mentors.


Spend time embracing each day; sometimes all it takes is a friendly “hello” and your day is so much better. Some good advice I recently got while composing an interview for my journalism class (taught by Eco Chick editor Starre Vartan), was to acknowledge the downs in life as it’ll make the ups easier to appreciate.

Here is what I wore on day six.
