Florals were everywhere this past summer and I’m so happy to see the trend continue through the autumn and winter. Not that I wouldn’t just wear them anyway even if they weren’t “in-style”, but the fact that they are still so on trend just means that they are very easy to find and that makes me happy. I’m really loving the deeper hues we are seeing in the autumn florals, they just feel so warm and rich. Perfect for the cold weather we have been having in Michigan. I fell in love with this dress from Avenle the moment I saw it, so when they had a sale a few weeks ago I just had to snatch it up! It’s beautiful orange and black floral print is unlike anything I had seen before and has such a vintage feel. I’ve also been trying to branch out, away from my usual fit & flare style and to embrace my curves with more fitted silhouettes. Even though this dress is form fitting, it is made out of the softest full stretch knit and is so comfortable. After we took these pictures, I remembered that I have the cutest orange crocheted cape that I got from a local boutique last year and it is so perfect for this dress. I’m bummed that I didn’t wear it for these photos, but I guess that means I’ll just have to re-style it for another blog post.

I don’t know what has gotten into me, but I have been in major nesting mode lately! I have had an incredible urge to cook, clean, and rearrange the house, which is so not like me. I guess it must be the colder weather and the fact that winter is coming. I think that I am so scarred from last year’s horrible winter that I am subconsciously preparing to hibernate by making the house feel and smell as cozy as possible. Has anyone else been feeling this way? I would love to know I’m not alone with this crazy behavior. I’m like a frantic squirrel storing away nuts for the winter ;).

Truly,

Tamara

    What an adorable dress! I love florals too, they seem to be appropriate for all seasons. I love the darker colors on your dress, it’s perfect for fall, and looks lovely with the black tights and cardi! I totally get in the mood to clean sometimes too. For me, it comes in waves. Like once a week I’ll get in this crazy mood to reorganize my closet and put everything away in its proper place and make sure everything is orderly, haha.
