Finding a Perfect Floral Dress Throwback Tuesday #42

can't find a perfect floral dress

That’s what was troubling my head all week, can’t find a perfect floral dress. Just kidding, but I did shop everywhere, online, and it is not for sale I tell you. The one I have in my head that is. Well, what a cold April week we had in the Netherlands last week. The first three days we had hail and snow every day. Wednesday morning I even woke up to the sight of a very white garden! I mean snow! In April! In the Netherlands! Hate it.

Monday was Easter Monday, but Gerben had a breakdown service all day so we couldn’t leave. We weren’t planning anyway with that awful weather. I received parcels almost every day last week, and they were returned just as quickly! So annoying! What should I wear when the weather is getting warmer? Nothing in my closet..ssss! LOL.

Can’t find the perfect floral dress

I’ve set my sights on a pink floral dress with ruffles and pockets. I just can’t find it! Well, I did find one from Mango, it was so perfect. But it was cotton, and a lot of fabric, so I looked like a balloon. I looked on every site, and what I have in mind is not out there! And looking for slingbacks with an open toe, too. Must have a Queenie heel.

Gerben was off on Wednesday, not really off, he is following an online course. So that’s cozy. I feel a lot better by the way. I suspect it came from a certain drug, I got a different brand last time, and I didn’t have a good feeling with it when I received it. Because the capsule was much smaller, so the ingredients had to be different. But I never listen good enough to my feelings, while I actually should because often it is telling the truth. So I took them for a month and last week I stopped with those and started with my old ones. Fortunately I am now a lot less out of breath and tired. What a relief that is!

How did our weekend look like

So I immediately worked out a lot last week. You know me  right! On Saturday Gerben was busy all day clearing out the garage and I worked out, blogged a bit and in the afternoon Denise stopped by for a cup of tea. In the evening we watched the start of the new season of Line of Duty. What a good series that is.

Sunday started of grey and wet, but after a long and relaxed breakfast and brushing the cats , it started to clear up and we decided to go to the national park for some fresh air. The weather was actually quite nice, cold but nice. In the evening Gerben made us dinner and we watched Peaky Blinders, still don’t like it that much and Broadchurch, which I really like! So this week I will stop looking for a floral dress and start again next week, lol. Perhaps one will catch my eye.

That was my week! I hope you had a good one too and wish you a good week ahead!

    I like all the outfits you shared in this post, Nancy. So frustrating when you know what you want, but can’t find it. What’s worse is when you can’t find what you’re looking for, but then buy other cute stuff impulsively. I’ve been known to do that. I hope your weather gets more spring-like soon. And I’m glad you’re feeling better!

    I hope you find what you’re looking for Nancy – I know what it’s like when you get an idea of what you want in your head and then cannot find it! And that snow? UGH – it needs to go away and NOT return!

    That is a lovely reddish rust dress you have on! The blazer you paired with it is lovely as well. The parley dress you wore is very pretty as well. Great outfits. I’m sorry to hear you had no luck finding a floral dress. There is still time, I would say. It has been cold anyway, so maybe you will find it just in time- once it gets warmer.
    It is good you returned to your medications, sometimes a new kind of drug can set us back. There are many ingredients in everything and sometimes our bodies react badly to some of them. I agree it is important to listen to our bodies.

    I have had the hadrest time finding dresses with a waistline where I want it! So I make do with mine, hold my belly in or add a belt! I have a dress I will share next week that would be perfect if the waist was lower but the color is so lovely as well as the floral and ruffles so I kept it especially that I had found it on clearance in the fall.

      Ha, I had that with a dress I show next week! I also had to use a belt because the waistline was to high!

    So frustrating that you cannot find what you are looking for. You have a clear picture in your head and simply cannot understand why it doesn’t actually exist. I remember looking for a black dress in a particular shape back in the 80s, and in the end settled for a different colour (lilac). Then, only a short time afterwards, I found my holy grail black dress!
    I’m glad to hear you’re feeling a lot better and found the source of your being tired and out of breath. That must have been scary. Hasn’t the weather been awful? I do hope we get some real Spring weather very soon! xxx

      Oh but lilac is gorgeous too! Oh it is so damn cold here, pff I want to be outside!

    Sometimes we not find what we search for. Another time it is simply there. Fingers crossed for your perfekt floral dress Nancy!

    Glad you are feeling better and it was most likely your medication making you feel worse. Ugh! I am completely over snow, ice, and hail by this time of the year. I know we can still get a freak storm or two for at least another month but I don’t even like to think about it never mind see it. Hopefully it’s warming back up!

    It’s terrible when you have something in your mind of what you want and can’t find it. I’m trying to stop doing that because it’s so frustrating. Granted I don’t need anything either, haha!!

    That risotto looks delicious and I love that dress that you wore on Saturday. I am sure that you will find the perfect floral dress when you least expect it!! I am searching for a cute dress for summer and some new flat sandals. I still have to go through the rest of my clothes though, ugh. I hope that the weather has improved there too and that you are having a good Wednesday! XO

    I love that burnt orange dress you have on, Nancy – it’s glorious on you. I also like the other patterned dress. I realized I never have that “I must have X” in regards to clothes. Even when I go on a shoe shopping mission (as I did earlier this week), I was only looking for shoes in general, not even anything specific. I guess I have gotten used to the luck of the draw from shopping second hand.

    All that food looks so good. How bizarre that you had snow, but it is spring – that does happen! We had hail last week – very rare here! – but are now back to very warm temps (~18 degrees!). We say about our spring weather, “If you don’t like it, just wait 10 minutes.”

      Haha, well not here. It appears that it will be 16 degrees after the weekend. which is still 10 degrees to cold for me! Lol.

    Nancy, your perfect pink floral dress sounds amazing! Now I will have that in my head and if I spot anything that fits your description, I will be sure to let you know! I am so done with the snow, my friend. We were supposed to have some flurries this weekend, but the forecast has since changed to rain. But it is still so chilly!
