I’ve long harbored an obsession with the Dutch Masters. The mysterious shadows in shades of somber black, the ultra-saturated blooms that seem to glow from within impeccable still-life arrangements and the fanciful appearances of the occasional dead peacock and plump, just-picked fruits. Perhaps most of all, I love the interplay of light and dark, which is probably what initially drew me to this moody floral print maxi dress.
The vibrant pops of rich teal and berry red lend depth to the floaty style, while matching thigh-high slits on either side part at the slightest hint of a breeze, revealing my favorite suede over-the-knee boots underneath. Since it’s still quite cold here in Iowa, a layer of cozy faux fur is a must, and this Topshop vest is an especially stellar specimen of the imitation stuff.
