Outfit: Floral and Bow Print Dress, Teal Cardigan, Blue Flats, and Retro Hair

Teal Cropped Cardigan, Floral PepaLoves Dress, Pointed Blue Flats, and a Red Bouffant

Happy Easter to all of you who celebrate! I wanted to post a particularly spring-y outfit to mark such a spring-tastic holiday. I wore this floral and bow print Pepaloves dress to work just the other day. It's one of those dresses I really love but don't wear super often. Maybe it's because it seems so memorable people might notice if I wore it all the time? Or maybe I just need to find more cropped cardigans so I can wear it with more colors. A nice pink one would be good...

Anyway, I paired it with my teal cropped cardigan from Delia's (which is really the perfect cropped cardigan for me) and my pointed royal blue flats. I've been putting my hair up again more often so it's in this slightly messy bouffant with flower hair clips to match the dress.

It's funny how I was pretty decent at getting my hair in a bouffant before I cut my hair super short two years ago. Then once it grew out again I had to relearn. There were a couple mornings I spent way too long in the bathroom trying to get my hair to sit right only to angrily brush it all out. Brushing out teased, hair sprayed hair isn't much fun. I think I've gotten the hang of it again though.

So did you have a good weekend? We spent ours traveling back and forth to our parents' houses, visiting, and eating lots of food. Riker is wiped out from the change in schedule and I don't blame him. I'm pretty tired too! Next weekend will be almost entirely for relaxing. 

Have a great end of your weekend and start to your week!

Really lovely outfit - all the colours are superb and yes, so spring-like! The only bouffant I know how to do is a messy one (if it looks good from the front I can guarantee it doesn't from the back and vice versa), but maybe that's ok? You're rocking it anyway!
