Spring in African Print Dress

It’s that time of the year again when the air is filled with fresh blooming flowers and our hearts are filled with hope, at least for me, we are slowly packing away winter clothing and getting ready to bloom with nature in some colourful outfits. Five years living in England but winter is still not my thing and still new to me just like the very first time. Except for learning the secret of layering and where to get the best winter clothing. With spring here I love nothing more than having the the long awaited wardrobe shift. Time to have fun and experiment with new prints, texture and patterns. Starting my spring in this beautiful African print dress.

I love this beautiful African prints for trying to be a little bit of a neutral with the greens and the orange abstracts showing the boldness, vibrancy and texture of the fabric. I love the neckline cut on the dress and the layered shoulder detail. Material used on the dress is cotton. A cotton lining with a closure zip on the left side.  A versatile dress that can be matched with more than one colour. Gentle dare are the two words behind the dress inspiration. The shoulder cut is meant to be simple, unique and minimal with a bold deep neckline contrasting the fabric into a simple understated full of life dress.

As I get too excited for the new season I hope I will have the time to make new pieces. And get out of my comfort zone by trying new fabric, texture, pattern, new ways of expressing my creativity. And share more of my creative process.

I also hope  to find something beautiful about life every single day.  To seek hope, contentment and happiness in the ordinary. Find something to make me look at life with awe and wonder (in a good way). Something to make me look beyond the bills, failure, the hurt and just see the beauty of having each day as another chance to experience God’s grace. Something to make me slow down and live in the moment, embracing and blooming right where I am. Whichever season you are in geographical or metaphorically  I hope you find that something too.

Thank you for stopping by.
