Fall, But Make It Spring

I bought this dress last year but didn’t get around to wearing it until now. It’s linen, but it’s pretty thick, so it’s impossible to wear during summer. I was saving it for the spring, but one thing led to another and I complete forgot about it. To my dismay, I discovered that it’s a bit tight on me compared to last year (hello pandemic weight gain!) so as much as I love it (especially the pockets), I’m not sure if I’m going to keep it in the hope that I may lose this weight or if I’m going to pass it down to my niece. The thing is, she’s a total tomboy and probably wouldn’t want to wear a dress anyway, so maybe it’s best if I just keep it.

P/S: A funny thing happened while I was looking up ideas to style a green linen dress. I came across this photo which features the exact same dress! Too bad reverse image search doesn’t yield any further information.
