Now that summer is officially here, throwing on a pretty dress just seems like the best option. And yes, I am wearing another floral dress. I really cannot get enough of them! This one belonged to my mom. It used to be longer and had full sleeves, but I did a little hemming and now it suits me just fine. I think it is interesting because the colors are more muted and earth-toned, with roses in an unexpected hue of rusty brown. Because of this, I see it transitioning effortlessly into fall and winter with a black blazer or cozy wool cardigan thrown over. But for right now, I will wear it as it is with my favorite purse (can you see that the twist closure broke off? I use Velcro now to keep it closed. hehe). This outfit makes me feel very feminine, which for me is a feeling quite hard to achieve during the summer months when I rely mostly on shorts and loosely fitted shirts to keep cool. But this dress makes getting dressed up a snap. Thank you all my little floral dresses for making my life just a tad easier once in a while!
