Roses for Spring

Winsome dress in floating rose: J.Crew
Nude Oscar heels: Jessica Simpson
Pearl necklace:  Mother's Day gift 

I worried that this dress would seem too winter-ish for April, as it was part of J.Crew's winter line and it is a lightweight wool.  But then I had two different people tell me I looked "springy" so  there you go!  I think the nude shoes helped make it less winter-like. I adore this dress and this print, and having the compulsive personality I do,  I had to have the dress, the flair skirt, and the top in this pattern.  J.Crew does pattern and color so well.  Whenever I wear a snappy little fitted dress like this to work I feel a bit like my favorite TV character, the gorgeous Dr. Addison Montgomery (Kate Walsh) on Private Practice.  She's always prancing around in beautiful fitted dresses and sky-high heels.  Except I'm not a life-saving OB/GYN.  A minor difference, no?


  1. Hello! Just came across your blog today by way of My Superfluities.

    I love this dress too. It's so pretty. I'm happy to know I wasn't the only one out there who bought the dress, skirt and top. :-) J Crew's prints get me all the time. I'm doing my best to resist the raj paisley.

    Looking forward to reading more of your posts.

  2. Andrea so glad you stopped by, and now I don't feel so bad knowing that there are other girls as obsessed with J.Crew's patterns as I am! Aren't they wonderful? I love ALL of the paisley prints J.Crew does! Thanks for stopping by, and please keep reading!
