I was so excited to see Sal's post about ditsy florals last night because I received a beautiful ditsy floral dress in the mail yesterday! Not long ago, I finally started browsing for clothes on eBay, since so many much more fashionable ladies have been finding great clothes and shoes there. How could so many stylish women be wrong? I bought a few nice dresses, but I think the ditsy floral might be my favorite.
Why do I love it? So many reasons. First, the thick fabric helps conceal exactly where I need it, and its wide empire waist (which ties as an adorable bow in the back) is extremely flattering. I think almost all of the dresses I own have some kind of an empire waist for this reason.
Second, the full skirt! I had my reservations about it at first, and it might even add some width, but it's just so fun and cute!
Third, the floral print is just perfect for spring and summer.

I went extra simple on accessories because of the print, which is probably another pro for this dress. I paired it with my favorite Etsy locket (which matches the print perfectly!) and some great gold flat sandals. I hardly ever wear heels in the summer because we walk just about everywhere, so I'm loving how polished these sandals look while still being comfortable.
