Fashion: Everyday Floral Style

I’m a massive lover of floral clothes, particularly dresses. It’s of much amusement to W, he’ll just pick up anything in a shop and suggest it to be just because ‘it has flowers.’ My go-to outfit, summer or winter, rain or shine, is a floral dress, and a plain-ish thin cardigan. Add a coat in winter, lose the tights in summer, alternating between sandles, flats and boots. It’s pretty much all you’ll find me wearing.

It isn’t tight – I hate bodycon dresses with a passion as my hourglass shape means I have to size up at least once. It looks good with tights and boots, and not bad with bare legs. It’s a little short, so the bare leg situation will be on one of the hotter days of the year when there’s zero chance of wind. It has the tendency to make me look slightly like I’m hiding a bump due to the fit, so I’d always belt it, but this has the bonus of hiding the massive lunch I had before taking these photos…

Understandably the quality isn’t brilliant (think similar to Primark), but it’s fab for the price. The site would be fab if you are experimenting with different styles, or need a few going out clothes. I love this dress. They also sent me a jacket, which I’ll be featuring soon, which was of AMAZING quality, I wouldn’t have complained paying three times the price for that. Other items in this outfit are Primark coat (lovely, but it’s bobbled like hell, a pet peeve of mine), Dorothy Perkins boots (reduced to £10, and the first non-fat leg boots I’ve worn in years), scarf from a scarf shop in Edinburgh, and my beloved Leather Satchel.

What’s your everyday style? Are you a fan of dresses, or living in jeans?

      Thank you! x

  • Love the outfit!

    I wear a very similar dress and cardi uniform to you for work in the week, changing up accessories and shoes depending on the weather, but at the weekend I’m quite attached to my Eden jeggings from Dorothy Perkins, which I wear with Primark tshirts, varying the cut depending on the weather!

    As always, drooooooling over your satchel. One day I’ll get a Nine Grand Student satchel, one day!

      I’ve struggled with DP jeggings and jeans – I have found they lose colour really quickly. I do now own a pair of jeans that fits though! x
