Florrie's floral festivities

Sunday, July 15, 2012


After seeing Sophie's entry I decided join Florrie's floral festivities to help her celebrate three year blogiversary.

This was a bit of a challenge for me as I don't have many prints in my wardrobe but having recently decided to inject some colour and pattern, this seemed like the perfect opportunity to show off my most recent floral find.

As a result of some eBay trawling I am now the proud owner of this pre-loved Topshop dress. I had to alter the neckline as it didn't sit quite right and with that done, I'm smitten!


I then went on a hunt to find other floral items for my outfit. I have to admit that I was surprised to find as many as I did. The whole process felt wonderfully reminiscent of playing dress-up as a child.


I added two necklaces - both daisies - one a bridesmaid gift from my sister-in-law, the second a Christmas present from my Dad, a leather cuff covered in daisies and three bracelets with flower charms, a brooch (found on etsy, made from recycled materials) and finally some sandals that I had to dust off - I had totally forgotten about them!

 A few minor hair alterations before I start...

And the obligatory shot with Tinker

And this is how it looks from the back.

    1. Thanks Sophie, the sun appeared at just the right moment (and then disappeared, never to be seen again!).

  2. I love this outfit- it's perfectly summery. I'd never have thought to alter the dress myself, I'll definitely be trying it in future! x

    1. I loved the dress so much that I was determined to keep it. I found loads of helpful tutorials online. I'm so glad I did it. Now I just need the sun to come out so I can wear it again!

    1. This cardigan is one of those items that I bought thinking that 'it would do'. In reality I wear if loads, far more than I thought I would. I love buys like that.
