Everything's coming up roses..
It certainly isn't Spring-like outside, so today I'm bringing you flowers galore with some beautiful floral picks (no pun intended).
Anyone who knows me will probably have a hard time to remember the last time I wore anything with a floral pattern - it's not a print I am typically drawn to, whereas stripes, animal print and spots are always on my radar. However there are some lovely options and I may venture from my usual print purchases and embrace a bit of flower power.
First up, this Anais midi-dress is from Warehouse, £69 and in their new collection. Very floaty and pretty but I'd be tempted to wear this over ripped jeans with very high heels!
They're still following the floral theme but these white plimsolls from Stradivarius, £29.99 are completely my cup of tea - these would look fantastic in this weather with waxed jeans or culottes.
Boden's Sybil shirt dress, £70 (was £140) is in their sale and this could be the dress that gets me on the floral wagon.
Oooh or this Asos pencil skirt, £35 (was £50) - again I'd be tempted with this one!
An investment piece, but this floral-print crepe dress from Ganni via Net-A-Porter, £150 offers clean lines and a simple print.
Alternatively why not introduce florals with your accessories? These floral earrings from Zara, £15.99 are a great way to add some Spring colour.
Another good option for a floral dress, this time from H&M. Their patterned long dress, £49.99 has an open back section so it's a great one for those of you that don't need to worry too much about a bra to keep things in check! If you do, then I'd suggest you pick a bra with a clashing colour bra strap (think neon pink or green!) to make a real statement.
Love the colour of this Haden ruffle wrap top from Nobody's Child, £11 (£22) and obviously a great price, but it looks quite short in the body to me so unless you have a shorter body, are petite or are still rocking a crop top (I think the last time I did it was 1999!) then I'd avoid. Otherwise a very pretty option.
This floral embroidered jacket from Mango, £89.99 totally appeals to my inner rock chick (although I don't think my wannabe rock chick is really that well hidden!). It would look amazing with leather jeans or culottes.
This San Diego floral paisley shirt from Dancing Leopard, £39 is a classic shape and would look fantastic tucked into a leather pencil skirt.
So if you're like me and have been a little floral averse, I hope you find some ideas there to encourage you to introduce this flowery loveliness to your wardrobe.
