Sooooo… backstory…my sweetie got on a plane for a three-week business trip to Europe and India - and our house threw a flooded HVAC at me. I’ll spare you the details, except to say that the cleanup was filthy, labor-intensive, and chock full o’spiders.

It was such an icky experience, I decided to set myself a challenge to wear florals every chance I could.

1) I thrifted this crazy floral shorts-with-a-train onesie several months ago, and finally got to wear it, with this 1980s belt. Espadrilles are vintage Stuart Weitzman. The happiness factor was immense, although I wound up swapping the shoes for pointed-toe, low-heel pumps because of a pop-up rainstorm.

2). The butterfly belt and SW espadrilles came back out, with some basic Ann Taylor shirts and a vintage Tommy Hilfifer button-down.

3-5) I was wearing neutrals, but managed to sneak in my new-to-me floral sandals and an old bag for dinner with friends.

6-7) Bonus dress that I wore for a film short Memorial Day Weekend. My mom bought this dress for me years ago. I finally cut the tags and wore it. I really enjoyed it and I plan to wear it into fall layered with sweaters.

8-9) Bonus shot of my parents’ adopted Frenchton, Arthur - aka “Bougie Doggins” (because he’s a hobbit, and because what is more Bougie than taking a mutt and rebranding it a ‘designer breed’?). I visited and got to hang with this loveable nugget last week.
