fun with florals

I finally decided to jump on the fashion blogger band wagon and participate in Everybody, Everwear's monthly clothing challenge.  Today the theme is floral prints of which I have no shortage! Because the weather was so nice I decided to wear one of my favourite dresses that I bought a few summers ago at a great local boutique called Frou Frou.  Since I spend my days in an air conditioned office, I threw on my high collared brown blazer for good measure.  Today's photos were shot at sporadic locations on our neighbourhood walk and out of 34 photos, these were the only ones I dared post (I blame it on the amateur photographer and not my skilled modeling poses- ha!)  Hmm perhaps I should save the rejects for an outtake post like Ashley of 2 Eyes in a Mirror did...

  2. This dress is so adorable...and that color looks great on you. I love how you paired it with the jacket, too :) I run into the same problem, dressing for outside temperatures of 90+ degrees, only to be stuck in a freezing cold office, instead.

  17. Hi - it's Alison from England (you entertained my kids at Christmas in Colchester). I found your blog from your mum's - I love it (and hers too, but she doesn't post often enough - what IS she up to, renovating a house or something?!)

    Cool outfits, give your mum my love - I really miss her!

One of my daily joys is reading the lovely comments you leave. It may take a day or two (or three, depending on how hectic life gets!) but I will stop by your slice of the blogosphere soon! xo Emily
