You Can Never Have Too Many Floral Dresses!

December 12, 2014

I think I might have a bit of an obsession – floral dresses!  Recently I’ve tried to change things around a bit with my style and wear more suitable clothing for the weather but no matter how many times I dig my jumpers out of the wardrobe, I always seem to get back to a floral dress.  I even find ways to make them winter proof, like adding a warm cardigan or smart coat.  I purchased this floral dress a few months ago from Select as it was a style I had previously worn in a mint green colour and I knew the colours would be perfect to wear during the Autumn.

I’ve never really been a fan of the colour burgundy but this year I am really attracted to it like a magpie. I think it’s the warming feeling of such a deep, rich colour that seems to always look luxurious regardless of how much you’ve spent on your outfit.  The Garden Floral Lace Skater Dress was only £14 so a complete bargain and after looking on their website, it is in the Winter sale for £10 (however only in sizes 6, 10 and 12). It’s got a bit of stretch to it, with a beautiful lace overlay which is sheer across the top.  An underskirt provides a bit of modesty, however the dress is quite short, and I’m only 5’5″.

As for styling this dress, I opted for a simply burgundy cardigan from Primark which cost £6 and wide fit brown knee high boots, also from Primark.  These are current stock and are £20 and also come in black which I am sorely tempted to get too.  I’ve always struggled with finding knee high boots as my calf muscles are huge, yet my ankles are skinny. Go figure!?  For accessories, I split a set of bracelets from New Look and chose golden and deep red tones to match my dress. I have to say I really love this look and it’s one that I’ve been rocking plenty of times recently.  What do you think of this seasons on-trend colours? Are you wearing them? I’d love to know!

      Thank you :) I still can’t quite believe how reasonably priced it all was either, I’ve never really shopped in Primark before but think I’ll keep an eye on their stuff now x
