The Grass is Greener on Our Side

Spring is one of our favorite times of the year. This isn’t really a statement too high in shock value, I know. Who doesn’t like spring? Not only does it put the last five months of frigid weather in the past but it also gives us tons to look forward to.

One of the things we enjoy at our house (or outside our house, as it were) is gardening. Being surrounded by all these Easter-y type things…basket grass, fluffy bunnies, flower bulbs…just reminds me that it’s time to start planning our garden. And trust me, my daughter reminds me every day that it’s almost time to plant flowers and watch them grow.

Something else that reminds me of the wonder of spring is this lovely flutter sleeve dress. Designer Nellystella really chose the perfect springtime shade of lush grass green. And you can almost imagine a happy springtime breeze fluttering the sleeves in a whimsical way. In 100% cotton, the girls dress has a classic comfort feel for wearing alone on a warm day or with a light sweater for when the temps get a little chilly. And as you know, it’s hip to be square, so this clean box collar is just what any trendy girl would want.

My daughter was certainly born with a green thumb. But the rest of her fingers are usually a nice dirty mud brown when it comes to helping me plant. So I keep this girls dress in the closet when looking at flowers (not planting them) is on the day’s agenda.
