A Far Out Floral Dress

When you think of a floral dress, spring and bright colors usually come to mind. Or maybe you’re more of a farmers market + sunhat kind of person? Either way, this outfit post is for those who like their floral a little different.

You might be remember my excitement of finding this dress in an earlier thrift haul video and predicting that I’d wear it with tights, boots, and a general attitude. Well? I’m true to my word!

This dress has previously been worn for thrifting, a birthday party, and running errands (all of which never got blogged!). Clearly there’s no wrong occasion for it and nothing that it can’t do.

I wanted to dress the whole thing down and give it that great 90s resurgence vibe that’s so popular right now. The black tights were an obvious choice since dressing for the cool temps always comes first to me. Everything else came together during one of my mad searches through my bedroom.

This utility jacket from a church garage sale, my fake Doc Marten boots I picked up from Target last year, a key necklace I’ve had since the dawn of time, and this crocheted scarf that almost always gets mistaken as homemade. (Sidenote: I have zero skills with needles and I have no problem admitting this scarf was store-bought.)

So this is just one more way to wear floral that doesn’t involve high tea or the face-melting temps of summer. There’s a lot of fun in wearing your clothes for perfectly imperfect moments.

    That dress is so cute! It must be very versatile because it is black and white- you could wear it all seasons and pair so many colors with it!

    • True! That’s one of the other cool things about this particular floral. I think colorful floral is where the real challenge lies. 🙂

    The coat is great with the dress and the scarf is super cute! I’m all for wearing florals in the winter and I think you did a great job! 😀

    Saving florals for spring is so wasteful. Winterizing isn’t just for your windows! #freetheflorals
