Saying Farewell to the Roses

Dress - Bernie Dexter
When I look at my wardrobe there seem to be three types of prints that I am irresistibly drawn to and cannot stop collecting: tropical, gingham and roses. I saw this dress and then tried to count how many other things with roses I already own and quickly lost track. The unique way the roses looked like they had been painted on was hard for me to resist, so I bought one for myself and the yellow version for my friend for Christmas!

As it nears the end of spring, the roses have all started to wilt away and these pink ones were some of the last ones left unscorched by the sun. Delicate European flowers do not fare well here, or at least not in Queensland as our summers are far too much for them, and for me as well.

It's been much longer than I would like since I last posted! A few months ago now, I got a new job and time has just sped by and I haven't had much of a chance to blog. In the meantime I've been using Instagram and have been keeping up with the blogs I love to read through there!
