A floral print is the perfect way to evoke the spirit of summer and this dress is a perfect look for date night. I've mentioned before that I'm quite particular in selecting prints. And this is probably the boldest print I have in my closet. And that's why I chose to keep the accessories simple: very little jewelry (a watch, bracelet and a gold ring or tungsten rings) and a simple sandal, but a bright color pulled from the print.
I haven't worn this dress in forever. And honestly, it was because I was very conscious of my middle. There's no concealing in this dress and wearing a wide belt was out of the question with this busy print. But these days, I've been feeling a lot better about myself. I'm revisiting a lot of things in my closet that previously didn't fit or didn't "fit right".
Often, I read comments advising women to rid themselves of clothing that no longer fits. Well... maybe so. But if you have it in your head and your heart to make changes for the better, then shut down those naysayers, keep your clothes in your closet and put in the work! And before you know it, you'll be where you want to be. Maybe those people give out advice based on their on personal resolve. They don't know you or what you're willing to personally accomplish!
The dress is (OOP) McCall's 6348.
