I have been patiently waiting to upload this post because when the recent thunderstorms descended upon Shillong, it really did seem “too late for florals”.
The good news is that the sun is shining outside right now as I’m writing this. The not-so-good news is that this dress is from SheIn and we all know what’s happened there. A bit of Googling has planted seeds of hope that the website might return so fingers crossed. My wishlist on there was a mile long before we were parted.
The print on this dress I’m wearing is a beautiful mix of details in different size ranges. From the large flowers to the small ditsy ones, the print is really well balanced. It fits into Trinny Woodall‘s advice that I mentioned in my previous post about not letting a print overwhelm you.
Wrap dresses are a great piece for any body shape, I’d say. They’re great for highlighting your waist and giving you that hourglass shape. (You know how I love it when I get #waisted.) Wrap ties on dresses and tops are wonderful for adjusting the piece to fit the shape of your body. They’re super flattering and I can’t recommend them more.
There’s more than a small nip in the air in town these days – especially when it rains and in the evenings – so my floral dresses will be going into hibernation real soon.
Thank you for visiting my little space on the world wide web and I hope you’ve enjoyed my #FloralDressesEdit posts. Find my previous two posts here and here.
The first time I laid eyes on this dress, I pictured myself wearing it to someone’s Spring wedding. It never happened, but I got the dress anyway – and it’s fifty-five percent off at the moment so let me know if you pick it up!
Prints are a tricky thing to get right. Trinny Woodall (of What Not to Wear fame) said that if you wear a print and people notice the print before your actual face, then it’s too overwhelming. She has other great styling advice on her YouTube channel. I just adore her energy and love of sequins.
Purple, lavender, lilac – whatever your shade, it’s been huge this year. I spent a long time looking for a good pair of heels in hues of purple until I landed on this pair. I saw them in green on one of my best friends (here’s looking at you, Koo) and she looked great in them so in my virtual shopping bag they went.
To complete the outfit for the slightly colder weather we’ve been having, I added a trench-style coat and a great camel-coloured handbag from Allen Solly – which is also on sale for fifty-one percent off! It’s a great basic handbag to have. Classic in structure and colour; and with the coat on? I mean, just imagine me as an extra in Sex and the City already.
Part Three of my Floral Dresses Edit (basically, my excuse to wear the dresses I bought for Spring-Summer that I never got the chance to) will be coming up next so stay tuned.
