Tea Time Rings, Spring Dresses, and Fancy Hats



I received my first springtime dress and jewelry of the year a bit ago, which certainly sparks a longing for warmer weather. Well, not that having tea is remotely a springtime event, it's just that the lovely floral design reminds me of the first bloom of the season, when the air smells warm and sweet. The dress isn't very visible at all on me, but I'm saving that for when spring officially makes it's grand entrance! Right now, it's so cold outside, all I can do is wear it only while walking around in the comfort of my heated apartment. I considered just throwing a coat and scarf over it, however this seems like the type of dress that needs to breathe and just can't spend it's days shoved under a multitude of winter layers!






It came to me in the most charming packaging and a lovely buttercup-colored ribbon that looks rather wonderful tied around the waist of the dress!















Vintage springtime floral dress: Good.Wiu Vintage
Tea kettle and cup rings: The Lovely Teaspoon
Pink Bow: Local thrift shop
Vintage hat: My favorite junky little antique shop


Currently listening to "Fallen Snow" by Au Revoir Simone. This video happens to be one of my favorites, and it's perfect for the beginning of spring, or at least for one who is desperately hoping for the beginning of spring!

I also remember my first springtime dress, my mother had promised to give it to me, but I had been a bad girl and I thought she would not give it to me as a way to punish me, but she gave it in the end, she was a good mother, nice post!
