Mother’s Day Sunday. We all decided not to waste the gorgeous but quite cold afternoon by staying indoors so we all headed down and to hang out by the bay at Glenelg. My mind’s been filled with lots of fairies (thanks to my adorable niece who can’t get enough of them) and my being here always puts a lot of images of nature and the great outdoors in my head, which somehow manage to influence my style mood a bit. My love for dresses are rekindled and the gloom of the winter season ahead has caused me to grab every opportunity to wear them.
Cue in dress #3 from Valleygirl, another summer-y piece complete with distinct floral prints. Yes, I’ve been much too enchanted by the floral dresses from the store that I had a hard time choosing which one to get so I ended up getting three (3) floral print dresses. Of course, they’re all from a different make. Valleygirl dress #1 is haltered and has a wider hem, Valleygirl dress #2 is an a-line made out of lightweight fabric and this one has a pencil skirt. I got it at the sale price of AUD$ 19.95 (roughly around Php 894.00), originally AUD$ 29.95 (roughly around Php 1,343.00).
I did mention it was cold that day, yes? One trick that helped shield off the cold, on top of the more obvious ways like the use of a couple of layers of outerwear, I wore natural-hued sheer stockings. It’s a great alternative esp if you don’t want to go for a look that will include wearing opaque tights. It creates an illusion that you simply have a dress and flats on, know what I mean?
Since the dress didn’t have sleeves and I took into account the possibility of a manageable temp, I opted to wear a cardi and brought my denim jacket with me for good measure. Ah, the beauty of layering.
I’m much too attached to my rings not to leave home without them!

P.S. On top of the country and vintage inspirations of late, I’m noticing a huge dose of prairie style flashes.
