Confident Twosday: Floral Dress 2 Ways & Giveaway

With the taste of gorgeous weather (ok, it was in the 50s but felt amazing after freezing temps for months) I cannot wait for spring. I am really looking forward to florals and bright colors, especially after receiving this beautiful dress from Deloom. I have such a hard time finding florals that I like with a good color combination and print. This one absolutely fits the bill. I was absolutely thrilled to receive it and could not wait to wear it! The stretchy fabric is very comfortable and it works well in early spring or later spring (and well into summer)! With the crazy spring weather many of us have I am showing two ways to wear it. One look for now as the weather is still a little cooler and another look for later in the spring when it's warm enough for bare legs!

For the first look, I pulled from the purple hues in the dress by adding tights and a cardigan for some extra warmth. The length of this dress would even work well with boots.

For the second look, I added bright pink accessories and a denim jacket. Accessorizing with pink is such a great way to add a feminine touch without going overboard. This dress plays well with so many colors!

  9. Two gorgeous looks that make the dress look totally different- just goes to show the power of accessories! Looks like there is olive in there too- might work well with a cargo jacket even for a more edgy look? I love Deloom- I always oogle over their items...this dress (or about a million others) would be perfect for Bryce's 1 year photos when we do a family shot, and maybe even for his bday party--because I just want an excuse to dress up, let's be honest :-)

  13. What a gorgeous dress! I love how you made it work for winter--I think that can be a challenge, especially with floral prints, but it totally works. Love the pretty pink in the spring look too--I hope spring comes soon!

  27. I love coloured dresses like this for the very reason you've showed here - how versatile they are. You can pick out different colours and created very different looks and styles. Lovely.

  30. The dress is so pretty, Laura. I love the way you styled it for early and late Spring...especially the tights. Here's the thing that really stood out and dazzled me, though...the belts. I love those belts and they are each just perfect for the outfits. Nice touch!

  31. I love the uniqueness of the floral print - and I'm certainly wishing it were warm enough for bare legs!

  42. That's such a pretty, dress, Laura. I'm particularly fond of how you paired it with a denim jacket. I probably would've worn kicks or ankle boots but only because I don't own anything lower than 5" :) xoxo
