I’ve been thinking a lot lately about tropical heat, palm trees and strawberry margarita’s.
In a desperate attempt to persuade some warmer weather to bless London, I put on my prettiest, most floral dress today.
I’m also very aware that it is still freezing in England and unless I want to catch hypothermia, I still need to dress appropriately. I thought this was a wonderful chance to show you my typical transitional winter → spring outfits.
I got this adorable floral dress from Topshop in the sale for £15. It has muted colours so it’s not too spring-like to be wearing in January but it still makes me feel a little less dreary. It’s has a Victorian vibe about it which I love. The sleeves are slightly puffed and the neckline is high with ruffles. I feel like a little doll wearing it – so cute.
To make sure people don’t actually think I’m a 5 year old. I put on these heeled Ego boots; I prefer a squared toe with this outfit because I think pointed would look too harsh for the dainty dress. I love wearing sock boots with tights/bare legs because they’re so flattering. I’m also teeny tiny so the added height helps.
I threw on my new favourite thing – this Topshop faux fur coat. This isn’t the first time I have posted about this and I regret to say it definitely won’t be the last. I love how versatile this is; I can wear it with leather and look like a bad a$$ b*tch or with flowers and look like a sweet lil Daddy’s girl. The possibilities are endless.
I added my trusty Kate Spade and because I just love making myself look like a rich snob, I had to put this headband on to complete the look. Blair Waldorf would be proud.
