How to Wear Prints & Pattern

M'dears I am so thrilled to finally share with you my first editorial shoot in print! At the beginning of June I spent a few days creating this -- if I may say so -- gorgeous shoot for Verily Magazine. If you haven't added their website to your must-read list yet, go check out the smart & savvy work they're doing. If you're a Dean St Betty I think you'll love their heart as much as I do.

Plus, get yourself the print edition. It is truly so classy. Thick soft pages, photo shoots that will inspire you, articles that will make you far happier read on the beach than the 5 weight loss solutions or celeb red carpets I confess to usually taking in. We're responsible for what we surround ourselves with. And I think consuming entertainment that's edifying is one way we can choose to be better this fall.
