Sunday Look: Floral Print Ruffle Dress

Happy Sunday!  Blessings for another week.  I have to say this past week was rather uneventful.  Although we had the usual Saturday of grand girls sporting events.  It’s still pretty warm and I’m so ready for some cooler weather.  I sound like a broken record I know, I know 🙂 …

I’m also not ready for all those dark muted colors either.  I’d like to think I’m a colorful kind of girl.  I never use to be a fan of floral print.  I purchased a floral dress a couple of years back.  I looked at that dress for a long time.  I liked it, then I didn’t.  I thought it was ugly actually.  But I couldn’t leave it in the store.  When I finally wore it I was in love and have been every since.  Most probably think floral prints are for Spring and Summer months only.  There are some beautiful floral prints of reds, gold, orange and greens that flow well into the Fall and Winter seasons.  I’m already thinking about what I’ll wear in December.  I can’t wait!
Today’s outfit is floral of course LOL.  I was drawn to this dress immediately, I’m not sure if it was the print or all the ruffles.  This dress has an allover floral print, a V-neckline, a waist sash-belt, long sleeves with split ruffle cuffs, and a ruffle hem. Can you get any more girly?  I felt like my youngest grand daughter wanting to twirl.

Last night when figuring out how to style this dress I went through several necklaces.  Whichever necklace I chose would dictate the earrings.  You know pearls were my first choice.  I ultimately decided on this gold multi-tasseled necklace and large loop earrings.   I know pearls go with everything but there was something about this necklace that fit perfectly in the V-neckline, (this necklace was a birthday gift).  I chose to wear a nude patent leather platform heel.  Every nude shoe I tried on worked.  It was all about the color “nude” that paired well with all the colors.

My BAG today was BIG! Sometimes you just now what goes well and what doesn’t.  This “doctor bag” looking handbag with a diamond stitched pattern was a very good choice I think.

There is BEAUTI  in everything, find it…
