Also I just wanted to add, I like the soft, warm light look too but I do agree with Ebi, I think you still need a more defined tonal contrast and for the colours to be less washed out, otherwise it does look flat. Photographs are 2 dimensional and therefore need some contrast, either with colour or tone, in order to make them appear 3-dimensional. I think the 3rd image down on the following link,  is a good example of a hazy look image that retains contrast. I don’t have a technical eye so can’t tell if the haze is through PP or from shooting at that time, but I think the best way to achieve the look you are going for would be to practise shooting in soft, warm afternoon lighting rather than adding the look in post.
