when in doubt, wear a fav dress

I've been wearing some favorite dresses which had been neglected, like this floral dress which was 'resting' since Feb2015. Big florals are still a thing (as far as I'm concerned)!
As we've leaved the bleak midwinter behind us, I've felt a little bored of my actual wardrobe and thought that some other clothes deserve an opportunity to go out for a walk. There's something new in the (still chilly) air. So I'm ready to turn my wardrobe around for the first time this year, even if the weather is not spring-like anyway. But I like to dance to my own rythm and, actually, spring is coming!.

(You could find some inspiration at Beating The Winter Blues, which shares some useful tips!)

Me he estado poniendo algunos de mis vestidos favoritos, que tenía un poco abandonados, como este vestido floral que llevaba 'descansando' desde Feb2015, y eso que los estampados de flores siguen en boga (en mi opinión)!
Ya hemos cruzado la línea de la mitad del invierno, y he estado sintiendo un poco de aburrimiento de lo que tengo ahora mismo en el armario, y he pensado que tengo otras cosas que se merecen una oportunidad de salir. Parece que hay algo nuevo en el aire (frío todavía). Así que estoy lista para darle un primer vuelco a los armarios este año, aunque el tiempo no sea primaveral en absoluto. Pero yo prefiero moverme a mi propio ritmo, y de todos modos, la primavera se acerca.

  1. I do agree, it's always a nice idea to wear our favourite dress. That dress is beautiful!

  2. Wearing a favourite dress is a perfect way to lift the spirits. I love all florals, big or small, and your dress is fabulous and indeed very Spring like. It's perfect with the little bolero on top. You are so right, in spite of the fact that it's still cold (and getting to be quite colder here in the next days), it's clear that Spring is on its way.

  3. That is a lovely dress - I do love florals.

    You have styled it beautifully with the red cardigan over it and jumper underneath and your lovely red beret. You look like Spring in person! Bet you needed that snuggly coat, though!

    Have a fab weekend.

  4. I remember in Hobart Tasmania where the summers are cold they wear summer dresses with long sleeves underneath. We need to feel our "Summer"!
    I too delve into my warmer weather gear in the last days of Winter. Can't do that in reverse though!
    Great styling in this outfit. xo Jazzy Jack

  5. Funny enough I just rediscovered a box of clothing that I'd put away for winter.'s almost spring! I'm happy because that is where all of my favourite blouses were hiding. You have too much clothing when...

    I'm a fan of florals, big or small any old time of the year. The dress is bright and fun, I'm glad you rediscovered it.


  6. I really like the way you've mixed this very flirty floral dress with black layers and kick ass boots! It is feeling like Spring here too - the snow is almost gone, the songbirds have been singing like crazy - but as it's only February I don't want to get tooooo optimistic!

  7. Great layering! I love the big, splashy floral pattern and, as always, your colour combining skills! We had hail today which is yucky but it is a sign of spring. I'll take all of the signs I can get. xoxo

  8. That's a fabulous dress - a taste of Spring even if the weather isn't playing nicely! I'm glad you gave it an outing. xxx

  9. Such a darling dress, I love florals. You always look amazing. I hope your week is going wonderfully xx

  10. My mantra is when in doubt wear red.... and it just so happens your dress is covered in it!!
    You're fabulous in every way.
    Even making a puffer look chic... and those boots!!! LOVE.

  11. That is a BEAUTIFUL dress and you look stunning in it! Tres belle!

  12. I love this outfit!!! Your dress, now well rested, is ready for new adventures, and you took it to one! I love bold florals, and they always will be a thing in my books. Great color combination - you are a master of it!
