DOVE REBLOOMED: A cheery dress styled for the Winter

Ba-da-bing, ba-da-boom!  I wore this dress in my first entry back into the blogging community and was delighted to re-wear this cheery number in the winter.  Winter in Northern California, more specifically in the East Bay, is never too cold so I can usually get by with a light jacket like the one in this outfit.
Since the dress has a structured silhouette (which doesn't detract from the print), I wore it with a drapey jacket to add some flow and movement to the outfit.  The crackled/distressed faux leather also adds an edgy-vibe to the very girly pink background of the print.
I didn't want to use the navy clutch I used when I last wore the dress as I felt all the dark accessories would dampen the the fun print.  Therefore in order to heighten the cheerfulness of the flying doves and the radiance of the pink, I accessorized with a bright yellow bag.

I am not sure why but yesterday felt like a Thursday!  I went into work early and started doing my Thursday routine and it wasn't until ten minutes later that I realized it's only Wednesday.  Not sure what threw my week off but hopefully I don't think feel a day late today or I will be sorely disappointed when it comes to me that it's only Thursday.  Have a great [Thurs]day and take care!!
