Last week, it was warm. WARM, I tell you!! I seized the day, truly, and wore a new dress by Stella McCartney via Bergdorf Goodman. My favorite designer and my favorite store. How can this be? You know I am a thrifty girl. Later on that.
This is a dress that beckons the wind and says "Take me to the Beach!".
Well I wanted to comply, but real life sometimes gets in the way of the conversation( between me and my wardrobe). I did find a quiet spot, so rare in Manhattan, and enjoyed two resplendent patches of yellow tulips.
My raffia bag by Mar Y Sol is the perfect beach companion. It is also good for shopping outings and picking flowers. Did you know tulips are my very favorite flower?
I find the perfect flower and what happens? The wind kicks up, puffing up my sleeves and waistband. My skirt is held still by the beach bag. My hair gets tossed, and I feel as if I am near the beach, while I am just on an island. The island of Manhattan!
Summer is so close I can almost smell the salt in the air. And yet last night it snowed and today was windy and frigid.
The spinning carousel of weather, it turns and whirls.
Outfit details: embroidered dress via Bergdorf Goodman, sold out, but available here. Mar Y Sol Capri bag via eBay, available here. T strap sequined sandals here. Note: my dress is a children's 12, which is why it looks small in the link. It goes up to a 14 which will fit a size 2-4. Emerald Bracelets via KC Signatures.
By shopping in the children's department, I saved a mint!

I realize that many can not or will not wear children's clothes. Here are some picks of other embroidered peasant dresses that I love.

This last dress would look gorgeous with my Capri bag by Mar Y Sol !
