It has been a really long cold snowy winter this year. Every weekend is inevitably darkened with gloomy clouds and freezing temperatures. I was in Colorado again this last weekend, and still couldnt catch a break. More snow!
When I received this fantastic floral print dress and sheer textured polka dot cardigan from Darling Clothes, it just broke my ability to deal with winter any longer. I was wishing for Spring through the sun rays of stormy clouds. The rich happy colors were so inspiring in vibrant versions of pastels, that was it. I had to go all out in a spring celebration. I found myself finally emerging from winter with the green hues of new life, and ready for March and April in a hurry.
So you have to ignore the snow in the corners and join me and Darling Clothes in a candy colored dream of spring!
I just love Darling Clothes because of the quality of their vintage inspired clothing. The zippers will out last the dress, the cottons are combinations of a luxurious heavy weight or a soft feminine fabric, beaded and pearl details have a substantial feel, the linings fit well and everything over all is just really well made.

I often wear Darling to fashion events in New York City and I get a lot of compliments on the pieces, they look luxury because of their quality, but the best part is, their price point is so affordable.

While I was in Colorado this past weekend, we stopped by the Chautauqua dinning hall and park, where we snapped these pics. My mom was a great photographer again. The hall and surrounding housing was originally built in the 1890s as a learning center for teachers from Texas. The grounds are nestled right at the base of the stunning Flat Iron mountains. If you are ever in Colorado and have a chance to visit Boulder, hiking up through the Flat Irons through the entrance at Chautauqua is a must.
