The Wallflower Gardener

Dress, H&M. Clutch, Jason Wu for Target. Studded belt, thrifted. Vintage brooch. Green heels, Limelight. 
     
     Despite the fact that this dress has one of the best floral prints I've ever owned, it's not exactly a dress for wallflowers. With the bold print and body-con fit, I definitely felt like I was commanding attention all day. And you might not know it based on this outfit, but I tend to be quite the wallflower at parties and the like. It takes quite some time for me to get warmed up, but I had to amp up the confidence to show off this dress that my mom picked out for me at the H&M in Atlanta. I had originally asked if she could hunt down pants in the same print, but the salesman said they sold out in the first TEN minutes of putting them on display!
     Although the dress is pretty much a standalone piece, I had a lot of fun picking out key details to play around with as well. Anyone could throw on this dress and look fabulous, but the accessories that people choose to add definitely reveal something about their personality. 
     If you like my look, it would mean the world to me if you could run on over to the entry on Chictopia and vote "chic" as I've entered the outfit into the Spring Bloom contest. The prize is a $500 wardrobe from Free People for the winner which is one of my all time favorite brands! Check out the entry HERE.

     What would you add to make this dress your own? I've already got so many styling ideas bustling around that I can't wait to wear it again!
