Autumn Florals

Some people feel that floral prints are exclusively for summer, but I think they're fun to wear year round. I love this Moody Floral from Band of Gypsies. It's a delicate print, but the colors are perfect for fall and winter and the cut is incredibly flattering. Serious bonus points for being under $69 at Nordstrom.

I bought this dress on a whim, not really sure how I would feel about it. My dress selection strategy is pretty straight forward. There are three main things I look for:
  • A V-neck (because it's always flattering),
  • Fit and flare, perfect if you've got a bit of a tummy,
  • Hits above the knee, because I'm not petite, but also not exactly tall
9 times out of 10 this formula is pretty effective, but I have to say, Band of Gypsies really hit it out of the park on this dress. It's so flattering! And bra friendly, which isn't on my list, but is definitely a major plus. MAJOR. The only thing that detracts from this dress is that it's definitely made from a warm weather material. I paired it with a wide brim hat (similar), black saddle bag (on sale - 60% off through Cyber Monday!), and my usual booties. A word of advice, the material is very light. It was quite windy and in addition to almost losing my hat quite a few times, I also nearly showed my knickers to any onlookers because the material was quite fluttery. At home in New York, I would add heavy tights and a sweater.
