Welcome to spring

Some grey mornings it's tough to get out of bed. The change of the seasons can often leave me in the doldrums, and I allow the looming of Monday morning to put a damper on my Sunday.

With more than half the day already wasted to my despair, I knew I had to rally. Sick of my endless cycle of denim I remembered this gem of a maxi dress tucked away in the back of my closet. As comfortable as pajamas, as easy as denim, but the appearance that I was really trying. And I suppose I was, I was really trying not to ruin the rest of my day with my negative thoughts.

Spring is here, the time to bloom is coming, if I could enable myself to embrace change.

  6. I've always been snobbishly skeptical about Seasonal Affective Disorder, but I have become a believer more and more. From about November to about end of March I don't want to do anything that I don't have to (except Christmas!). We have snow now too. Friday--snowed, Today 72, Wednesday--snow. So over it. You look gorgeous in this printed maxi!

  12. Oh good thought--I need to remember my maxi dresses this time of year too! I've been in such a jeans-rut because I need comfort on Mondays, but somehow I forgot about maxi dresses! I love this one, especially with your lace up flats peeking out! :)

  25. That is such a beautiful maxi dress! Love the print and it works so nicely with the gold accessories :)

    I find maxi dresses are simple easy outfits too, and usually make me feel a lot better and pulled-together. Hope it helped you get over your Sunday slump!

  31. This dress is fabulous! I'm just back from Europe and catching up on two weeks worth of your outfit posts and seriously, what a place to start - especially considering there are also lace-up flats under said maxi. I imagine that means you had this dress tailored, and what a good decision - it deserves to be worn over (and over and over) because it's so lovely. And I can only imagine how wonderful it will look on a sunny day!
