Remembering Marigolds

Marigolds used to be one of my favorite flowers to plant during Spring. When I lived in Michigan, for years I had a ‘green thumb’, and I excitedly anticipated the yearly day in May when it was time for me to plant all of my annuals. 
Marigolds became a fast favorite because they bloom for months, don’t require a lot of TLC, can survive full sun, and the unpredictable summers that make Michigan, well Michigan!
The background of the bodice of this dress boasts a beautiful golden hue, quite similar to the marigolds that I used to plant.
I’m particularly fond of the generously sized bow around the neckline and classic pleat skirt.
It’s really perfect attire for work, and is easily paired with sandals and a clutch for after work ease.
