Flowers Can Sprout in Winter Too

Hi friends! Marlen from Messages on a Napkin here, braving winter storms to wear pastel dresses for you.

When I borrowed this pretty number from Marisa over at The Shades of Monet Chronicles, I knew there was no way I could not pair it with a ridiculous amount of color. Mainly because pairing anything from Marisa with neutral colors would be criminal.  Just. Criminal. 

So as to not offend the dress, I went with mustard and bubble gum pink. I loved how girly and cheerful it looked, especially with the added flower belt.

  5. I agree - pairing Marisa's clothes with anything not-so-colorful is just wrong :) She's the color queen! This dress is darling and I love the colors you paired it with Marlen! That flower belt is especially pretty!
