I’m kind of uncaring how cliche wearing a floral print dress in the spring is and though I wear floral print all year round, there is something extra romantic about wearing my favourite floral print dresses once spring hits! But that said just because it’s technically the spring doesn’t mean the weather is always going to comply with those romanticized ideas you or I have when it comes to wearing and styling them. For instance in my vision of wearing a floral print dress in the spring includes a bright blue sky, with the sun shining, the birds chirping, the smell of all the pretty flowers in bloom and a temperature that is comfortable enough for bare legs and arms accompanied by my favourite sandals!
What I actually got was grey skies with the threat of rain, cold temps and a lack of pretty scents in the air. So I had to rethink my options and decided I wasn’t going to let this take the “spring” out of my step. I wanted to wear my floral print dress and wear it is what I did. I swapped bare legs for straight jeans. I exchanged sandals for ankle boots and bare arms for a frayed denim jacket ( though for rebellious/photography purposes I took it off at times).
The moral of the story is, in life we sometimes have these great visions of how we want things to be but life can often have other ideas. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, it can just challenge you to try it a different way around and you never know how you might end up surprising yourself. Even when the odds seem stacked against you, find a way to make them work for you instead.
