I may have been a *little* overly zealous for the end of winter when I took these photos. I am just so, so sick of wearing boots and bundling up that I decided to don a summery dress and Mary Janes and cold be damned, I was going to take photos without ruining the effect via clunky boots! Of course, I immediately regretted my decision when I got snow in my shoes. I can't wait to wear this outfit when it's actually weather-appropriate and I don't risk getting frostbite.
I wore this dress for our first day in Disney World, when we went to the 1950s-themed restaurant at the Beach Club resort and dinner at the Boardwalk. I am nothing if not thematic. I received more compliments on this dress than I could ever imagine. I'd planned on packing a petticoat (I think this dress looks better with a little fluff underneath), but that wasn't in the cards, and for some reason, the one I use most makes this dress look WAY too voluminous. I need one that has less layers! I'd been crushing on different versions of this amazing printed dress from Bernie Dexter for forever, and I finally took the plunge when it was on sale a while ago. I'm so glad I did, because every dress I've ever purchased from her has been incredibly flattering and dreamy. I always have about 3 different dresses of hers at a time on my wish list! They're definitely more summery frocks, but that just makes me all the more excited for warm weather. Spring, please hurry up!
Have a beautiful Saturday!
