How to rock the floral dress?

Last year florals on Michael Kors and Stella made me fall in love with gardening. And I got two floral dresses; one bought in vintage shop and the other provided by my grandmother. This autumn I convinced myself I won’t be influenced with floral no matter how botanical spring runaway will be. And it was. So again I bought myself two floral dresses; both short sleeved and bit bodycon. I even got floral leggings from second hand shop. In that period I was a bit influenced with Alicia Silverstone in Aerosmith videos; prints and floral à la rock. And just when I caught myself ready to operate again through my grandma’s closet, I’ve run on article by some fashion theoretic saying she wants to puke from all those chic editors, fashion journalists in floral dresses and fashionistas wearing baggy clothes and looking like they replaced their closets with those from their grandmothers.
I was a bit unpleasantly surprised. Do we sometimes look like that?
Is it that bad that we love vintage clothes? I mean loving grandma’s clothes beneath its fashion sense, signifies you are connected with your heritage. Oh mine; I don’t see sin in that. If we wear floral dresses we won’t be grannies like our therapist from above stated. We are inspired by them but we are living according our time. And we do rock vintage clothes.

And to survive hot days I like to remain my rock spirit. In light spring evenings I'll wear floral dresses on massive boots like those refined heel version Dr. Martens darcie. Finally we have a heel on icon shoes. If I am wearing it daily I’ll be most likely to pair it with casual sneakers in grey and cool chain necklace, lovely for having lemonade and chilling in some park.
We fashionistas are rock childs in our souls.
p.s. I don’t know why some people still refer image of vintage or second hand clothes with unattractiveness. Aren’t they aware that fashion has its circles.
p.i.s.s If you have grandmother I encourage you to peak at her closet from time to time. She’ll be glad you like her clothes. Just don’t get too carried away, she still needs to wear something since she probably doesn’t shop as often as you do.

I love all types of florals. I think looking grandmotherly depends on how you combine the clothes (and also on the type of grandmother you have ;-). Anything can look old or outdated if you don't put a bit of contrast or update the look. Love all the dresses you picked out!

The 90's are back and better than ever.

I think fit is key when it comes to vintage.

You have a lovely blog my dear. Do you do link exchanges?
