Spring Dreaming

As the sun continues to set here in Antarctica, my mind wanders to these photos, taken by Susan Stewart of Love Hunters early last fall. It was so warm and the evening was so fun, it's hard not to wish to be in the States for the oncoming spring, too. Greenery! Oh, how I miss thee. The polar landscape has it's own breathtaking vistas (we've already had some austral auroras!) so I can't truly complain, but these photos do create a tinge of sadness and lust for warmth.

Taken in Forage, an incredibly beautiful and curated greenery showroom and event stylist on Frankfurt Avenue in Louisville, KY, these photos are a harbinger of spring come none too soon. Though nothing too new, I always think of florals in such a romantic way, which is why when I found this dress at my favorite Goodwill, I immediately thought of English countrysides and a bite in the air, which is why I paired it with a long overcoat and over-the-ankle boots (fur lined, no less!).  Susan felt the same way, too and suggested Forage as a backdrop, which was a stroke of thematic genius.

In an effort to help out those with more time on their hands than searching through racks and racks of clothes at thrift stores or tabs and tabs of pages on Etsy, below you'll find a bunch of floral dresses that I absolutely adore, and hope you do, too!

I started looking for long sleeve floral dresses but ended up throwing in a few others I thought were pretty!
