Dark Floral

Fall makes promises of being cool and crisp, but some days still manage to be warm and oppressively humid, causing me to change half a dozen times before I can leave the house because every piece of seasonally appropriate clothing I put on feels stifling. You know it's a warm day in October when your Starbucks is completely sold out of pumpkin cream cold brew. 

During these bipolar seasons, one day I'm getting cozy in my new velvet bomber jacket and croc booties, the next it's back to light dresses and sandals, no matter how sad a state my pedicure is currently in. Thankfully, maxi dresses provide style solutions on such days; coverage while allowing air flow, easily layered when it invariably gets cold the moment the sun sets. 

I'm never one to turn my nose up at a 68° day in October, but the 90% humidity can go.

  1. What a beautiful floral dress! You look so pretty in it. Your bag is love.

  2. That's a really stunning dress on you - dark florals also seem like such a romantic print and it looks wonderful on you. And it's nice you're still getting patches of warm weather!

  3. It's such a pretty dress! You know I love a dark floral. And I love it with the dark accessories/belt!

  4. Such a pretty maxi dress! it looks so good belted on you and I love the darker florals! it's nice you can still wear some summer pieces even though I know humidity that high doesn't make you feel like dressing up for anything, haha! it's almost like summer here!

    Hope you are having a nice weekend :)

  5. What a stunning dress, love the voluminous look of the skirt and that print is so pretty! You look so stunning and elegant in it <3


  6. I will always take warmth, however long it lasts. Although it's barely the end of October, it already feels to me like it's been winter for months - and I know it will be winter for months longer. I've tried to push bare hands and bare ankles for as long as I can, but we passed the point of that being reasonable weeks ago already. So I'm happy to see you in a summer dress, even if the weather was less than ideal, because I've forgotten what bare shoulders feel like at this point and can only look on in envy at anyone who is strong enough to make it for five minutes with bare hands ;)
