Happy new month, beauts. ♥ You may be forgiven to only associate florals with Spring/Summer. But the blooming spirits are not limited to the lighter, hotter months. Winter florals can be a breath of fresh air in the cold months, often adding splashes of colour to rather dull days. In the spirit of Valentine’s, I wanted to create a classy outfit that you could take inspiration from when deciding your lover’s day ensemble.
I couldn’t resist this dress when I saw it- for various reasons. I’m a big fan of all things midi. When worn right, it can be a real hit. I particularly love the full skirt of the dress. For small-framed sisters like yours truly, dresses like this can be very flattering as they show off cinched midriffs whilst masking petiteness and giving illusions of wider lower bodies. With its high neck and gentle pleating, it’s a very preppy, off-I-go- to-a-tea party look. As a substitute to red, I opted for an orange blazer from Zara which complimented the floral print of the dress. ∗Dress: ASOS∗ ∗Blazer: Zara∗ ∗Shoes: Aldo∗ ∗Clutch bag: Dorothy Perkins∗
