Outfit Details:
Watercolor vintage dress: Cricket Capers
Gray cardigan: dELiA*s
Spectators: BAIT Footwear
Daisy ring: Mom's

I decided it was time for some color!  It's so easy to be sucked in to a bevy of neutrals and earth tones during the winter -- and though I love these, sometimes it just becomes boring after a while!  Since the snow thawed a bit this week (it got up to like, 50 degrees on Thursday) and it actually felt springlike, I decided it'd be a good time to wear this lovely vintage find.  I love the color and pattern of this dress (it doesn't really remind me of Monet, but I had the same visceral reaction to it as when I look at his paintings, hence the blog post title), and I do love any vintage dress that comes with a matching belt!

I had yesterday off, and had planned to work some more on my room... but I ended up kind of wasting the day.  I really want to get a little bistro cafe table to paint, but I'm not sure where to find one.  I've looked on Etsy, so probably my best bet is a thrift, antique or estate sale shop.  I wish the weather were nicer so there would be garage sales!  I guess it'll just have to be a work in progress until I find one.  Maybe I can convince my mom to take a trip out to this antique co-op on the other side of town... they have tons and tons of stores, and I've found some real gems there before.  It's a little ways to drive, but it could be worth it!

Enjoy your Saturday!

  3. Ehehe, aren't those bouts of nice weather throughout winter and fall just the nicest things? I'm glad you were able to take a break from layers and wear something spring-y. This dress is just adorable on you, Miss Sammi!

  6. such a beautiful dress! i think i've said it before but it doesn't matter for me what time of year it is, if i feel like dressing in bright or pastel spring colours in the middle of winter i'll do it because sometimes you need it for a bit of cheering up.

  7. Oh my, this dress is beyond beautiful Sammi! Such a great find. I love the length and the print. ♡♡♡


  8. Such a gorgeous dress and I love that ring! It is fun to remember color in the winter- it's so easy to get sucked into dark neutrals, you're right!

  9. Goodness, this whole outfit is so sweetly, appealingly pretty. I love that you've partnered a vibrant floral with soft grey. Doing so really wrangles the dress into feeling more like winter in such a fashionable way.
