Turning Heads Linkup- Pink Floral Maxi Dress for Spring

Floral midi dress for Spring

Happy Spring!

Whew. We got through Winter.

I’m sharing my love for florals this Spring, with this feminine, maxi floral dress from H&M.

My Outfit

First, this week has been about styling florals. I posted yesterday a casual look for Spring wearing a floral blouse. HAVE A READ. 

I bought this beautiful floral print dress last year and have been waiting to bring in out of my closet!

My eye tends to go toward larger floral patterns such as this, and the colors are so soft and beautiful I could not resist. This dress, last year, sold out fast. I do love the print so much I have it in a blouse as well.

Tie styles are very popular with dresses right now, with any length showing this feature. This maxi would also work quite well with slip on flats in the early summer, but I now get excited to switch over to my espadrilles. This blush pink sandal c/o Andre Assous a few years ago, goes with much in my closet, it really is a neutral shade because of the shade’s lightness.

Since there was a chill in the air the day we took these, I styled it with my favorite pink moto jacket, adding another touch of femininity to the look. A jean jacket or long cardign in olive or another neutral shade could work quite well too.

I had to show you the dress without the jacket, as the sleeves are voluminous and dramatic. I love it! 

The dress would also be great for a midseason transition with tall boots

I have found some floral dresses for you to peruse in the links below.

What’s Goin on?

We’ve been having some good days here, a bit warmer than it has been . This past weekend we went to a brewery, sat outside, and enjoyed drinks and Middle Eastern Food from the food truck,. My dad, an Irishman, was the first to introduce me to Falafel, and I have been a big fan ever since!

Just some of the small things in life had me thinking yesterday. My neighbor has a Weimariner named Tua, and boy, did we have fun! He couldn’t wait to run in the backyard, and I was happy to accommodate! We did laps back and forth and he could have lasted longer than I, although he was ready to go inside. I just have a bond with dogs, and they make me happy.

My mom has had all her vaccinations, and my hubby and I have been vaccinated once. April 8th we have the second Phizer shot. It will be a bit of a relief when we are completely vaccinated.

I have started working in the garden and went to our local nursery. I am looking for some colorful flowers to plant around our deck.

    I love this whole picture-shows optimism for the future. The dress is cool-sort of a Boho classy take. And adding the pink biker jacket-perfect! congratulations on getting your first vaccine. Tomorrow will be our two week wait after our second-finally, sort of out of Covid jail…more or less

    It’s a gorgeous dress Jess! The sleeves are definitely a statement and quite exceptional. Love how it looks with your jacket too. It breaks up the floral print adds a bit of edge.

    LOVE that jacket!! I’ve been searching locally for some colored moto jackets for myself since before Winter, and have no had any luck finding an Extra Large.

    This floral dress is such a beauty on you!! I love that bag, too! I think I may have seen you wear it before on here? My state just announced that everyone should be able to get the vaccine starting on April 9, which I’m in the last tier and I can’t wait to get it.

    You have such pretty floral pieces, Jess! Glad to hear you guys are getting out again. Things are opening up here as vaccinations increase. We get our second dose of Moderna this week. Yay! Happy 7th blogversary, too!

    Another stunning dress. Love the soft colors, the print and the fabric. You are spring personified.
    Just a couple more weeks and you will know the relief that comes from having both vaccines. I feel like
    a weight has been lifted. My Prince C. is having his second as I type this. I did have some aches and
    pains, chills and a rolling tummy, low grade fever after my second so plan to have an easy day after.

    We just chose some new outdoor furniture and can’t wait for it to be delivered. Next will be some chairs for our fire pit and we will be all set for the weather. I need to wear one of my floral dresses this weekend! This pink one is so pretty!

    This dress is such a gorgeous floral print, and so pretty on you. I love the soft pink tones for spring. Glad to hear you are on your way to being fully vaccinated. I am still waiting for my turn to get on the list, my state is behind the curve. I will be so happy to get out and about, again!

    Another beautiful floral outfit Jess!
    Pretty as a spring bouquet!
    Sammy and I got our first shots on Friday and feeling so hopeful that we may get back to enjoying time with family and friends.
    My husband has already gotten both shots and will be flying up to visit his 89 year old father finally!
    This feels like we are slowly turning the corner. Only if the rest of America would do the same.
    Time will tell…..

      Thank you Robin! I do have a fair amount of large florals in my closet, I always have gravitated towards them. Great that you got the vaccine and Sammy did as well, I know we will be able to do some things by the end of April , once we get the second. Thats great to hear about your hubby, I am sure his dad will be happy to see him. I know, I hope things improve from here.

    Jess, you look absolutely stunning! I’m in love with the print on that dress, it’s beautiful!
    Isn’t falafel delicious? I love it and can’t wait until the restaurants open up again so I can have some.
    I totally get you about boding with dogs. I have the same thing. I just love them. I’m obsessing over a British TV show called The Dog House at the moment, about a dog shelter rehoming stray dogs and those that owners can no longer take care of. It’s so heartbreaking, but wonderful when they find new, loving homes!

    That floral print is beautiful and I love the sleeves on the dress too! Getting it in a blouse too was a great idea, it’s so feminine and romantic!
    Glad you are close to being fully vaccinated – the light at the end of the tunnel!

    Beautiful outfit, Jess! I love these shades of pink and the floral print is so gorgeous. I am so happy that you are all well on your way to full vaccinations! By the way, I also love falafel. I think it was my sister who first introduced me to it and I have loved it ever since. But it’s hard to find where I live!
