Unique Vintage Areyah White Floral Swing dress 026

I don't care what season it is, florals are meant to be worn year round.  This dress is the newest addition to my closet and I'm very much in love.  It has adjustable straps and lots of give in the back so it's perfect for all you busty girls!  I usually shy away from spaghetti straps but sometimes it's a good thing to make exceptions to your rules.

I've been on the hunt for cute but work appropriate shoes lately.  While I have a good collection of shoes, they're either super high heels or super comfy flats.  I wanted to find something in the middle ground, so these shoes seemed like a good compromise.  I like the ankle straps and the wing tips, but they're wedges so I can be on my feet all day and not end up with blisters.  I also found some small but really chunky heels that I'll showcase here in the next week or so.  I'm not much of a shoe person but these two new pairs have me pretty excited!

I have a baby proofer coming today to check out our house.  Our banister isn't up to current code and Bianca can pretty much squeeze through both between and under the bars.  I keep having horrible thoughts of her falling from the second story so I can't wait to see what solution they come up with.  This is going to be interesting...

  6. The almost neon pink is a fun color combo with the hair! I didn't even know baby proofing was a job- how interesting.

  7. I totally agree with you. Florals are forever, no matter the season. I love this dress so much... I have one similar that I wore a long long time ago. But it's a classic! Good luck with your shoe search. I can never find shoes to fit or else I would recommend something for you.

  9. Another perfect outfit which is a joy to see. That's my policy on florals- all the time as much as possible.

  10. I love the colors and yay to florals year round! I think it's more natural for those of us in year round sunshine to always don the florals :) I love those shoes- I wish I was less of a "shoe person" because they are taking over my closet!

  12. Beautiful as ever - and spaghetti straps are extra ok when they have a little bit of detailing like these do. I wholeheartedly agree that flowers are for whenever you want them! It's all about the things you put with them... And I have no doubt in your ability to draw them for colder weather! Mid heel shoes are my favourites - looking forward to seeing your other pair! CC x

  13. That dress is gorgeous, and wonderful with your hair! As a Southern California Belle, it's pretty much part of your job description to wear florals year-round to cheer up the rest of us :) Good luck with the baby proofer, I hope they'll give you a few less things to worry about!

  14. I love the colors. Im such a floral fiend so Im dying over that unique floral print. Also I really love the top fitted portion of the dress. Im totally with you on trying to find stylish comfy shoes. Im on my feet the whole time Im working I have yet to find the perfect pair but I have invested in some Dr. Scholls inserts. So I am all ears if you find anything that hits both marks!

  15. This dress is just so pretty! I love the colors in this print. Finding truly comfortable shoes that are cute can be such a pain but I think these are a happy medium. Sometimes I buy shoes that should be comfortable in theory but they end up hurting anyway. Then I have to put more money into them like getting those heel cushions. First world problems. But anyway, this pair is super cute!
