For a backdrop of lily pads, blossoms, gentle waterfalls, greenery, and waterfowl, it's as though the Forest Green Seville Dress by The Pretty Dress Company was made for such a retreat. With splashes of gold and rose tones layering it's rich pine-colored backdrop, and the classic feminine silhouette you'll remember from my Tropics in Rose Seville post, this beauty is a springtime delight. Even further so, breathable stretch sateen cotton allows for comfort and a wide range of occasions, even lounging by the pond...
