Flower power

Well the weather is a bit gloomy today in Seattle but we did have a burst of sun yesterday afternoon that picked my spirits up. Today I'm riding that sunshine wave by dreaming about springtime and this gorgeous dress from Tibi. I just can't get enough of the fun colors. The flattering bodice is a bonus too, and I just love the cleverness of a tulip skirt on a floral dress.

Wouldn't this be the perfect little dress for a spring luncheon, bridal or baby shower, date or wedding? Paired with a blazer and closed-toe heel it would be appropriate for work. Throw a little cardigan or shrug over and add strappy heels and a clutch and you're good to go for a date. Or cover up with a military or safari jacket or anorak, and some cute red flats and you're ready for brunch and the farmer's market. The possibilities are endless.

At $345 it's not a bargain, but you could apply the same principles to any floral dress. Keep the pattern large and bright with a white background and keep the cut simple and flattering. See how the dress follows her shape but doesn't cling? That's what you're looking for here.

We'll have more spring fashion finds coming soon. Let me know what you're dreaming of and I'll try to include it. Military? Florals? Budget items? Let's hear it!
