May Flowers

We Live Upstairs Flock Together Swap

Hey guys! Leah of We Live Upstairs here. So...rainiest, coldest, dreariest April ever, yes? It's a good thing I had Dus' beautiful embroidered dress to bring me into the (hopefully) much more beautiful month of May!

Since I like to make things complicated for myself, I wanted to find a way to use the dress as a shirt...and my lovely ankle-length, green trousers did just the trick! I also love (like, love love) a good pattern mix, so I added the striped cardigan, which was perfect as the wind picked up a bit that evening. Add a floppy hat and you have something both bohemian and practical- my perfect look for the start of the summer months.

Be sure to check out how Dus and Hannah styled this gorgeous piece! I love the Western feel of Dus' boots with the dress, and Hannah's statement coat pairs just dreamily with it. You can see their posts here and here.
