OOTD: Efflorescent

I gave you a little sneaky-peek at this dress in Monday's post, but I'm super excited to share the real deal. Florals are really growing on me. Not that I didn't love them before, I just couldn't see myself wearing them. Ridiculous, I know. I bought this one without trying it on, figuring if it didn't fit I could resell it. I know it's a bit frumpy, but I love the dress so much I don't even care. It could just be that the dress itself is a tad too small for me, like the last floral find, but, like that one, I have plans to modify this dress because it looks fine with the back open as well. I will be a walking curtain once again, and I'll feel like a hippy fairy princess while doing it. Especially with my first floral crown of adulthood to wear it with. But more on that another day.

Honestly though, if you had told me I'd be this into floral anything three years ago I would have laughed in your face. But here we are, another dress, another print full of flowers. It's becoming an addiction. Perhaps I need an intervention (Please don't intervene, I'm having too much fun with this!)

I feel as though my personal style has evolved with my personality. I'm much less afraid of new things than I used to be, much more open to people and experiences nowadays. And while I still feel most comfortable, and most "me" in a floor length skirt and corset, I'm pushing myself to stop staying within the limits of my comfort zone and start wearing the things I've only ever coveted, like pink princess party dresses and, yes, floral prints. I keep forgetting you guys have yet to see the darker side of my wardrobe. Part of the reason I started this blog was to figure myself out, to push my comfort zone, to try new things and document the process. Essentially, to help me become the person I want to be. So it's been all about the new things here, not the old. One day, when I get my own clothing back, that part of me may trickle in here, but for now it's all about the new. And the new includes this dress. Even though these photos were taken a month ago when my hair was still pretty. And these glasses were still in one piece. A lot can happen in a month.
