The theme for this week’s Five Take is appropriate for the season… floral!
Instead of going with a typical spring palette, I decided to pull out the Beth Ditto floral dress. I wore it a few times in the fall but this is the first time I’ve manged to get pictures! Can you believe it?
Actually, I think that I was wearing it the night the Giant’s qualified for the World Series. The building my classes are in is pretty close to AT&T Park and the roar from the crowd and city was absolutely insane! Naturally, I packed up my stuff and ran to BART so I could get on the train before things got too crazy.

I have a lot of floral clothes. Ugly floral prints hold a special place in my heart but this dress (not ugly) is one of my favorites. After the amazing Beth Ditto navy velvet dress, I had to buy it. If Evans released this style of dress in 20 colors, I’d be very tempted to buy one of each. It is one of the more unique dress constructions that I’ve personally come across for plus sizes – or at the very least, of the dresses I own. The draped panels in the front are amazing! And the best part? They are POCKETS.
Need I say more?
Anyway, I love floral – this has been proven over and over again, so I’ll spare you the gab and post way too many pictures.
Lately I’ve been getting back in the habit of wearing my hair tie on my wrist – as seen above. Sometimes I remember to remove it for pictures but then it gets lost! I probably have 10 packs of stupid hairbands but can never find one when I need it. Which means… hello semi-permanent black bracelet! I left more length in my recent haircut and I’m quite ecstatic that I can pull my hair up again. The small pleasures in life!
Happy Easter to those of you who are celebrating! I’ll be off to dinner with my family where I plan to torture people by orchestrating a family portrait. I just hope it doesn’t rain!
