hello spring!

farminista_angelinadress-3

Spring has arrived here on the West Coast, and trees bursting with blossoms are a common sight!  We are so lucky to have such mild, short winters (most of the time), and this year was no exception (although we might get another cold spell yet!).  The gorgeous blossoms shown here are from our apricot trees in our orchard.  They are so lovely!

Now, I love wearing florals, and think that Spring is an especially good time for them!  This Angelina dress is classy and unique, with a bold pattern that is tempered by the dark navy background.  I’m in love!  You don’t often find longer sleeves on Spring/Summer dresses either, which is another feature of this dress that I appreciate.  No need for a cardigan!

Floral Print Dresses

Make a statement this summer in a floral print dress

Most of the summer dresses we carry in our boutiques have bright floral prints or patterns on them.  With a short prairie summer and so many weddings and bridal showers to attend a floral dress is the perfect fit.  Many of these dresses are vintage inspired, the prints fill you with a touch of nostalgia and the silky, flowing fabric makes a statement for any occasion.

Delicate accessories for a summer dress.

Floral prints don’t need a lot of accessories, a few stacked bracelets or wrist wraps, a softly coloured statement necklace and a thin belt just polish up your look for a summer wedding or party.

We love summer flowers

We love to see how girls switch up their flower print dresses for different occasions.  When you fall in love with a dress and know you can use it for work, weddings and a hot date it makes it easier to commit to the dress.  We love to look at blogs for inspiration and Velvet & Vino blogger Becky did a fantastic job showing three ways to wear a dress with flowers.

This is one of our favourite looks from Becky on how to pull off an evening look in a fun, bright floral print, check out her blog; Velvet & Vino to see the other looks she created.

 

This Grace dress has been one of our more popular floral prints this season.  A dark base colour like the black makes it easier to pair with shoes and match your date.
