The Floral Dress

(Bag – Exact, Dress – Similar, Shoes – Similar)

This sort of feels like a really rare blog post for me since I’m not wearing any jeans, shorts or denim of any kind! This dress is actually quite old, I think I have had it for about 2 years now, but it’s still one of my favourites. The cut of it with the lower neckline and nipped in waist is really flattering for my shape and I think it’s so feminine with the pink floral print. I love to wear it when it’s hot outside! Luckily the past weekend was boiling hot because we had a heat wave!

I’m wearing a River Island floral dress, Topshop Shirley wedges, my Mulberry Lily in Oak, my Adele Marie pink swarovski bangle, some H&M gold bangles and since my earrings are visible, those are my Azendi purple Carousel earrings.

One thing I have also been experimenting with lately is my hair and having hair accessories. Here I’m wearing a pony tail tube which makes your pony tail stick out, a bit like in the 70’s. I do love it, but since I have such thick and long hair, the weight of it pulls it down a bit unfortunately. I was looking on Hershesons and they seem to have some really cool hair accessories like clip on ponytails, clip in colours, a bow hair clip and other interesting things that I think I might want to try out! I do have a Doughnut for a sock bun, but I just really can’t get that to work at all. Anyway, what do you think of my outfit? I think it might be perfect for a garden party if I was ever going to one!

I’m not planning on posting a post today though, the next one will be on Sunday :) But I’m not sure if it’s an outfit one.

    Because you “dont like” that kind of movies :) bad excuse πŸ˜›

    How about a blogpost thats a follow up from your last, from the Lingerie Boutique? :)

    • Lorna June 1, 2012 / 4:52 pm

      Lol yeah, I’m not a fan of those kind of movies because I find them scary sometimes and quite boring. I prefer romance movies or some detective movies and comedies, those are my style :)
