Spring Florals

A couple days ago we had a freak snow storm and got another 4 inches of snow.  The very next day it warmed up and melted every bit of it away.  This has been the craziest weather I have seen for some time.  But, I am hopeful that Spring is just around the corner as I have some crocus blooming in my yard.  In honor of those tiny yellow and purple blooms that are causing my heart to pitter patter, I thought I would share some beautiful floral dresses that I have been looking at lately.  They are actual vintage dresses available on Etsy, brimming with beautiful, colorful flowers.

Well, there you have it.  I hope these dresses inspire you and bring thoughts of Spring to your mind, as they have mine.  What have you been looking at lately?


  1. Oooohh, this wonderful post is dangerous for my wallet. :) Seriously though, I absolutely adore each and everyone of these beautiful mid-century floral print dresses. There's no pattern I love more than a classic vintage floral (which explains why parts of my closet look rather like a garden! :) ).

  2. All lovely, but as you say, the draping of the brown floral is stunning, and it's so unusual. My days of a 28 waist are long gone though! I am loving orange/tangerine at present - maybe a brown fabric with tangerine flowers, or fruit.... I will start looking!
