In Ohio it’s really hard to care about how you look in winter. It’s all layers (and not the cute autumn-type layers), hats, coats and practical snow boots. It’s almost officially spring, and while the birds are chirping, it’s still freezing out. But that won’t stop me from starting to air out my dresses and sandals and start planning the garden. I am so pumped for dress and skirt season.
I have been obsessing over Boden’s spring line since I got the January catalog. They kindly offered to send over couple of frocks to share with you, and how could I say no? (Fair warning: I am in desperate need of a bang trim!)
The first one I selected, sang to my thrifting and vintage sensibilities. While the shape is pretty modern, the pattern on the Printed Spring Dress is made up of vintage plates! I couldn’t resist! It’s so light and breezy. It will be perfect for those super hot summer days at the flea market or errand running. The length is just perfect.
My second pick is the perfectly named Lindsey Dress! Yep! It’s like it was made for me! I wanted something tailored enough to wear to work, but was as comfortable as my PJ’s, and this fits the bill. It’s made of a super soft cotton knit that is stretchy, but still holds it’s shape. I added a blazer, some tights and boots, and this worked well in the snow and ice as well. I love the color too! I considered getting the navy, but this green was irresistible.
I would have loved to frolic in a field in these dresses for the photos, but we are still buried in a foot and a half of snow and ice. To finish the looks I accessorized with a vintage straw handbag, some simple flat sandals in a fun color (see similar), mid-height t-bar pumps (see similar) and a neutral cardigan (see similar).
