Lately I’ve been operating under the theory that if I wear a lot of florals, it’ll make spring come. That’s how weather works, right? 😉
I wore this outfit for a short nature walk over the weekend, where there was plenty of snow but also plenty of sun. We also saw a few cute dogs, including a tiny lab/husky mix puppy with one blue eye and one brown eye!

If I wear lots of bright colors and florals, then spring will come more quickly, right? I’m pretty sure that’s how weather works…

This is what I wore to go blues dancing last week. I hadn’t been to blues in a while, so it was good to be back.
Putting together this outfit left behind a pile of rejected pieces. In fact, at one point I was wearing the same top in black, and the same petticoat in hot pink, before I switched them out for eggplant and light pink. Domino Dollhouse’s petticoats are the best for any kind of dancing–they’re so full and twirly.
Sometimes people wonder why I wear ginormous flowers on my head all the time. The day trip I took to Shelburne Falls yesterday confirmed the two main reasons: it makes me feel more like myself, and it gets positive reactions from people everywhere I go.

I figured I’d wear my biggest flower crown to visit the Bridge of Flowers–because when in Rome, dress like the scenery, right? I got so many compliments from strangers, and even had two different people ask if they could take my picture. I love when random people want to photograph me–it makes me feel so famous. 🙂 And in general, I love fa(t)shion as a conversation starter: a way to have small positive interactions with friends, acquaintances, and strangers alike.
I wasn’t consciously inspired by Frida Kahlo when I put together this outfit, but many of my friends commented that it looks like a tribute to her. I’ll take it!

Thanks to a tip from a friend, I discovered quite possibly the most exciting thing ever: a farm where you can pick your own flowers!
There’s nothing quite so wonderful as being surrounded by flowers with a pair of scissors and free reign to pick as many as you can fit in a jar. It’s cheap, too–only $6.25 for a large jar, which is far less than flowers cost at the supermarket or even the farmer’s market.
