This happens to me every summer–I stick to my monochromatic navy/black/white/camel wardrobe, which don’t get me wrong, I do love, but then everyone and their sister, aunt and grandmother, are running around in beautiful floral dresses. I end up with major dress envy.
No more. This Spring, I bought two floral dresses–one with a black background (safe, I know) and one that reminds me of a top and skirt covered with miniature strawberries my mom wore in the 70s. If you are more minimalist like me, I say take a risk and try one, and if you already appreciate that effects of wearing something pretty, then I am preaching to the choir. Where to look? Doen makes beautiful, rather affordable versions. And there are a plethora of florals on Net-a-Porter, and Matches Fashion.
