Old Winter Blooms

Cardi: Modcloth (2010)
Hat: Gift from friend
Flower Pin: Vintage, from grandmother's dress
Tights & Socks: UO
Shoes: Vintage

Oh hello snowflakes.  You seem to be making daily visits as of late.  Tell me darlings, are you still in the midst of winter, or have the spring blooms started to peek their heads out of the ground and trees yet?  I can't tell you how ready I am to be wearing sundresses and kayaking down the lake.  Spring is getting me so very excited - if only it could be here already.  I feel a big celebration coming on - cupcakes anyone?

Anyhow, the very lovely and statuesque Marlen of Messages on a Napkin and Flock Together group so sweetly sent this little beauty of a dress over my way - and of course, I was very eager to wear it.  As for the turquoise flower I'm donning (yes, I realize it's VERY big) - but not so very long ago, I came across this vintage maxi dress from my grandmother and this flower was a part of it.  As my grandmother was tall and slender and I am petite and curvy - sadly the dress was not all too flattering on me, but this oversized flower pin on it was something I could wear to remind me of her.  I quite love wearing something of hers so close to my heart as it makes me feel quite warm on these icy winter days.

Have a cozy and warm Thursday darlings, 

Love Bunches,


  1. the blues and reds work so well here! No snow in the UK at the moment but it is grey and rainy, no sign of Spring!xx

  2. I am loving this look Marisa!! That dress is so gorgeous, love the colour and its perfect with the blue cardi, the bright flower is the perfect pop. It's still winter here, it's snowing right now, but I am SO ready for spring. Luckily I get to go to Vancouver soon for a few days where its green and there are things blossoming :D

  3. You look great. Love the colors together.

  4. The teal tights look so pretty with the color of Marlen's dress! I don't think I ever noticed what a gorgeous print this dress is!
    As for the weather, I am in the same boat as you! It's actually really warm today, but I am of course stuck inside the office. This weekend, its supposed to snow a decent amount again, when will it end!
    Anyway, hope you're having a great day and I'd LOVE to join your cupcake celebration!

  6. Oh my, you are a risk taker stepping out on that pipe like that. Also a lady with excellent balance! Nice story about the flower. It looks great with the ensemble.

  7. oh gosh, the tights here!! i am not sure why, but i am completely in love with them. the color is right on the dot.
