Flora and Fauna


It was a serendipitous moment to walk upon the flowers that were blooming in a dress very similar in hue and feeling. I love this dress, and obviously the pattern, but mostly the cut and structure. I love a flowy-boxy number as much as the next girl, but sometimes a formfitting dress with a great pattern and a little frill is exactly what one needs to welcome in the blooms of Spring.

It was also serendipitous that on this day, at this time, the clouds started shifting to allow a little sun on an otherwise rather gloomy day. It made me realize that flowers are blooming, and it is indeed Spring. And while it has been rainy and misty most mornings, the water only helps the flowers to bloom bigger and brighter, which leaves a smile on my face a mile long.

Ugh, it’s the little things.

I also call this dress my tea dress. Is it a proper tea dress? I’m not sure, as I feel that any dress of a certain length can be a tea dress if you wish, but this dress with the high neck and ruffle down the bodice makes it feel rather posh, while not polishing off the bank account. Pieces that have a little character gives your wardrobe that attention to detail effect which leaves people remembering your astute sense of style. This is the secret to curating a wardrobe that is unique, while not really breaking the bank, and this dress added exactly what my Spring wardrobe needed.

Which was a spring my step.
