Pumpkin among the flowers (an outfit post)

It's been so gray and wintery here for the past couple weeks, and I'm itching for spring to get here already!  I'm trying to incorporate some springy cheer into my wardrobe to make up for the drab weather.  Naturally, this floral dress fit the bill.  I don't have too many casual dresses (I am so drawn to special occasion dresses that I end up getting those instead of more practical choices), so this one has become a staple of my wardrobe.  I especially appreciate that it can span the seasons and still be appropriate for each.

Outfit details
Plant By Numbers Dress: ModCloth
Lady in Rad Boot in Camel: ModCloth
Tights: a cheap store in Union Square (similar here)
Belt: ASOS

I love how this dress looks with tights and boots!!

The original orange belt that came with this dress broke after the first time I wore it, so I was thrilled to find a belt from ASOS that perfectly matched the original!  I've worn a wine-colored belt (from another ModCloth dress) with this one too, but I think the orange is so lovely with it.

Meanwhile, another orange thing named Pumpkin was very interested in what I was doing...

...Very interested indeed (notice that she was also interested in my boot laces).

I informed her that if she was that interested in what I was up to, she would have to be a part of the photos, too!  She's a natural in front of the camera, don't you think?  :)

I'm SO happy to have (mostly) figured out the solution to my blurry photo problem!  Taking photos in this corner of my room provide the most light, and not having enough was the main issue.  I can't wait til it warms up so I can start taking photos outside, too.

Have a lovely, lovely Wednesday!

  5. That dress is so pretty on you, and I love your colourful stool

  6. This dress looks stunning on you. Great find at Modcloth and Modcloth shopping can be addictive. I can't wait to pull out some of my dresses from modcloth as well. Thanks for posting this.

  7. I'm always nervous about wearing florals but think they look so cute on other people. You rocked this look, and I agree I love the way the boots look with it too!

    1. I actually sort of agree with you, if only because a lot of florals can look really fuddy-duddy or matronly or the proportions can be off. This is actually one of the only floral things I own! :)

  8. so cute! I have very similar pictures on my blog with a calico cat in the way :p

  9. You are adorable girl! Loving your style, and that dress!! :)
