HIYA!

Remember me? I've been gone for three whole weeks! Doesn't sound like much, but in the fast-moving blogging world it's an age. I've been having some technical difficulties of late, my hard drive thought it'd be a good idea to go in to meltdown so I almost lost all of my photos. Luckily enough I managed to get it fixed up without any losses. Oh and I quit my job!

Enough of that though, because just a few short weeks ago I purchased this gorgeous floral smudge dress by 'Oh My Love'. If you're a regular reader you'll be well aware of my love-hate relationship with floral prints. It's nothing personal, but year after year without exception we are subjected to excessive amounts of floral prints on the high street and the internet too. So whilst you can get some pretty special ones, they are a bit like needles in the proverbial haystack. If done right, a floral print dress can look very elegant and pretty. This one from 'Oh My Love' certainly does that.

I think what sets this apart from the crowd is the silky texture combined with the watercolour effect print, meaning it doesn't look like your average floral, in fact from a distance it doesn't even look floral at all!

Castaway Floral Smudge Printed Dress - Oh My Love // Stanley Buckled Pointed Heels - ASOS // Emerald Jewel Necklace (worn as a headband) - Personal Palace
   
Just a quick note on these Asos shoes - they are surprisingly comfortable! I don't often get along with heels whatsoever and frequently look on at those who can wear them on a night out with a unique mixture of envy and admiration. The ankle strap buckles my feet into the shoe and makes these really comfy to walk in, no danger of my feet popping out of these!

    You know I'm going to have to get those shoes now but I love how the design doesn't look floral at all. I actually like this *and you know me* Your hair even goes beautifully with the colours in the dress

  11. I completely agree about florals, Lima - I think Meryl Streep summed it up best in The Devil Wears Prada when she said, "Florals for spring. Revolutionnary." While there are lovely prints out there, most of them are a dime a dozen. This dress, though... this dress looks like it was made for you!
