Wear it Now, Wear it Later (Floral Maxi)

A few weeks back I attended an event at the French Connection store in SOHO.  One of the darling members of the French Connection team sported this happy, floral dress.  As the summer is quickly winding down, I thought I'd table the purchase in favor of waiting to see what the stores have for fall, but I couldn't get the ease and the print out of my head.  Lucky for me (and you) it's on sale!   I've styled it two ways, one for the rest of the warm weather days, and one for those chilly fall mornings.
