Wardrobe Wednesdays - Flower Power

I like to keep with themes, so for this week - keeping up with a "I wish it were spring" theme - I thought I would wear a floral dress with pastel flowers. I thrifted this dress about 2 years ago and love it. Every time I wear it I wish I were headed to a tea party. The layered skirt is sort of big and obnoxious however so I have only worn it on a few occasions. Every time I put it on I feel an intense need to twirl away. Let me know if you think it is too wild to wear often.

Outfit Details: Dress - Thrifted | Tights - Marshalls | Boots - Steve Madden | Bag - Thrifted.

I hope you all have a lovely Wednesday :]

  1. Not at all too wild. And dressed down with flats and tights you could go with this almost any day, super cute. Think summer, pink flats, that bag and a strawhat (a trilby)

  8. I been looking for a floral black dress since I was 16 and saw a $200 one at the Betsy Johnson store. I am so jealous that you found this one at a Thrift store, who would of known! Well until I get lucky and find one at the mall or the thrift store, I will be sitting here wishing I had your perfect dress.

    1. Aw, thanks! I am so bad at wearing semi-bold pieces. I will try to take it out of the closet more often.

  10. Oh, I would wear that dress very often! That skirt doesn't look obnoxiously layered at all to me. I think it's fabulous! And you wear it very well. The bag is a perfect match to the outfit.
    And seriously, just about all my dresses are twirl-worthy. There really is nothing better (and more fun) than to wear a twirly, girly dress! :)

  20. Oh a twirly dress is a dream to wear! :) You look so lovely in it! Thrifted dresses are the best - they are so much more special than the ones from H&M or such like. :)
