Floral Frenzy

Hello again,

The sunshine is finally make an appearance in all its glory – and I think I can speak for everyone when I say – finally!

There’s something about the summery, blissful weather that makes me want to throw on something botanical. It’s almost like a natural instinct to want to adapt to your surroundings… Beautiful flowers are in bloom left, right and centre – so why shouldn’t your wardrobe be the same? (Even if you’re a hay fever sufferer like me) (Seriously, I sound like Darth Vader right now.)

… It is surprising how I haven’t grown an intense hatred for flowers for making me look like I’ve been smoking some of the funky stuff… but I seem to have done the opposite – my wardrobe is slowly but surely becoming an array of the most beautiful floral prints on a range of garments.

Spots and stripes are usually my go-to patterns, it’s like I’m a human pool table – but once the sun is out, then so are the flowers. Maybe if I’m dressed like a flower, then pollen won’t attack me? We can only hope…


The Jumpsuit



Admittedly, prior to this, I had never owned a jumpsuit before. I have a couple of playsuits yet had never invested in a full length all-in-one. However, I deem this Topshop beauty an absolute brilliant introduction to the jumpsuit world…



I also must admit that I have never been a huge fan of the ‘cold shoulder’ trend – but I couldn’t pass up this up; the frills that fall so elegantly on the shoulder are an absolute winner in my eyes. I also never buy anything yellow – it’s not that I’m not fond of the colour, I have just never believed it was my colour, if that makes sense.

A slightly ‘daring’ purchase if you take all of these things into consideration, but I was certainly not disappointed – despite the fact I had to add a couple of safety pins to the front, due to Topshop failing to cater for slightly bigger breasted chests. Not to worry – it’s nothing a prod of a few pins can’t fix, and I’d happily accidentally prick my fingertips a few times in order to show this beauty to the world…





Teamed up with my new delightful basket bag and trusty white, pointy slingbacks, my jumpsuit styling is complete…

The Tea Dress




I absolutely adore tea dresses – they’re perfect for daytime and the evening, and can be styled in so many ways. Team one up with a denim jacket and some loafers for the daytime, or throw on some strappy block heels for the nighttime. You can’t go wrong – versatility is key when buying pretty much anything in my books.



What drew me to this lovely little number is the fact that the colour scheme isn’t too ‘out there’. I adore floral patterns, but I somewhat feel out of my comfort zone when sporting something a little too bright. This is the epitome of happy medium, without a doubt – I feel that this could be worn whatever the season. Sport with some bare legs and T-bar shoes in the summer, or throw on a boyfriend coat, black tights and Chelsea boots in the winter. Perfect – I love being able to mix things up, limiting yourself to a piece of clothing depending on the season seems such a waste to me, but it’s easy to train yourself to adapt to these kinds of things.



Another beauty that was soon poked and prodded with a safety pin or two, I’ve found that maybe that comes with the territory when indulging in ‘wrap style’ items. Obviously I’d rather not have to do this, but it’s easily fixable, so I can’t complain too much…

Wind and dresses = not a good combo. Marilyn Monroe moment…


I threw on some vintage T-bar shoes to complete an on-the-go summer look…

Let’s Talk About Skirts For A Second…




In my previous entry, I included these photos of me sporting this dreamy maxi skirt, and had to talk about it here. I purchased this skirt from Depop from a seller called Luna Spirit Vintage, who I’ve also seen at a couple of vintage fairs that I’ve attended. The 70s vibe the shop possesses draws me in every time – and this skirt was no exception…


Indulging in a maxi skirt is also another first for me, but I’m pretty pleased with my first buy – as I mentioned before, I’m not keen on limitations when it comes to clothes, and I like the look of not having all of the buttons done up – it prevents me from feeling like a complete and total granny…

So that’s a wrap…
