a floral dress.

who's ready for spring?
i know many of you [who are experiencing extreme winter weather] are. and even though it may seem like winter is dragging on, don't worry...spring will come. and you better be ready for it. i picked up this floral dress from Patty's Closet in anticipation of all the fun spring pattern mixes i know we'll be seeing. i'll admit that florals are not at the top of my list (i mean, i'd rather be rocking leopard!), but ones with a black base are certainly easier for me to wear. and bonus that this one has hints of radiant orchid throughout.

and speaking of spring, have you entered the totally awesome spring giveaway yet? you can win a $500 amazon gift card (or paypal cash); second winner gets $100. you can buy a lotta floral dresses with that! scroll down to enter.

i am really looking forward to the weekend even though rain is in the forecast. it's another busy one for us with mini-she's speech competition, a poi-pounding session, mini-he wanting to see the lego movie, and me wanting to get a good run in, but it's still the weekend.

what's happening in your neck of the woods?

  16. That's such a lovely floral print, and the dress looks great on you. And YES I am so ready for spring! I stored away most of my really pretty skirts and other flouncy light garments over the winter, so while I'm not going to be doing much shopping come warmer weather, at least I get to rediscover about half of my wardrobe (and goodness knows there's so much in there that I forget about half of it heh)

  25. You're right - I can't wait for spring to come! But as March is a typical female month, now it's raining outside and it is cold. Nice dress, I love floral prints!

  26. Like you, I don't do a lot of florals, but the black base does make a big difference!

    It is always summer here, so I wouldn't mind a bit of springs crispness, but I won't complain (too much!)…..

  29. I can't wait until it's warm enough to wear cute dresses like that! I'm so over winter, we're still under a foot of snow and it might snow more. Sigh...

  30. I love your floral dress! I just did a post on How to Wear a Floral Dress! I can't wait for the warmth and sunshine of Spring either. Too bad it's all snow and ice outside here right now.

  33. I do like your dress and I think that it would be appropriate for a poi pounding session, but I rather be at the luau eating the poi than making it and this dress with the beautiful pink and white flowers is wonderful.
