Florals? For Spring?

"Florals? For spring? Ground-breaking."

-Miranda Priestly

Good morning! 

I am finally back from Miami and boy was it spectacular! 
With the weather causing a major headache at the airport, our flight was delayed three times, the gate was changed a slew of times and because of the inclement weather, our pilot told us what would normally be a 2.5 hour flight was going to be 4 hours. Turns out that we were held in a holding pattern and flew around the airport for another hour until we were told it was ok to land. So what should be a quick jaunt took double the time. They had prepared us for some turbulence, but it turns out the ride was super smooth, so I guess that is the upside.

Guys, the weather was picture perfect, not a cloud in the sky and an amazing breeze.
I wish we had stayed even longer, but alas, I do have a life and responsibilities I needed to get back to.  If you follow me on insta @Sparkle_and_Slippers you may have caught some of my stories. 

I am such a fan of dark floral, when I saw this flowy midi dress I had to make it mine. 
The lightweight material was perfect to wear to dinner our second night in town.      

I hope you all had a wonderful week, 

xx, Elise
