Don’t you just LOVE floral dresses?  They are so feminine. They remind me of when I was a little girl, and I had to get dressed up for Sunday dinner with my family.  No matter what kind of mood I am in, a pretty floral dress will always make me feel girly and pretty.  Well, the trend for Spring 2012 is feminine, floral, pastel, and bright.  I am so excited!  I picked out these gorgeous dresses from a sea of choices out there.  I just love these colors!  And, I know what you are thinking……”But it’s freezing outside, and it’s still Winter!” (Well at least it is for those of us on the East Coast)….BUT FEAR NOT!  I thing I love about these dresses is that you can totally rock them now, in this cold season, as well as later when the weather warms up!  I would wear any of these dresses with thick fleece lined tights, a wool coat, boots and a cute hat.  It’s the perfect way to brighten up your dreary Winter wardrobe and put a smile on your face! And of course, as the weather warms up, you can peel off your layers and show off these gorgeous dresses on their own.  A great investment!  These dresses range in price from super affordable, to pricey.  As usual, I wanted to give you a broad range of styles to look at.  And, also as usual, I will be showing off this look this week, and show you all how I would style a floral dress this Winter.


Hope your New Year is BRIGHT!!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!  My first post of the New Year! I am so excited!  Thanks to everyone who has been following my infant blog so far! I promise there will be more exciting posts, givaways, and tons to look forward to in 2012!! 😉

For New Years Eve day yesterday, I decided I wanted my outfit to reflect my spirit and outlook for 2012….which is BRIGHT.  I decided to wear this gorgeous Old Navy wool coat that I purchased last year, and never had the chance to wear!   I absolutely LOVE this shade of pink.  It’s such a great pop of color in the cold, dreary winters of NYC! Even wearing it made me happy!  And, for a bonus, it was super affordable, as are all Old Navy coats, at just $99.99.  Chic, elegant, and fun for under $100 bucks!

My best friend Debbie snapped these photos for me in her neighborhood of Forest Hills, New York.  (It’s in Queens for you out of towners LOL) We were out shopping, and buying food for her New Years Party that night.  I hope you all had a fabulous, fun, amazing, and special New Years! All the best for 2012! xoxoxo
