Dress In Bloom

I ordered this dress on the very night I received the Spring/Summer catalogue from Simply Be (I'm an impatient girl!). When I looked through the catalogue, there were many items I immediately put into my virtual shopping bag; I then took a hold of myself and stripped the bag back to the initial items that made my heart leap, and this dress was one of those items.

The cut and shape is 50s vintage inspired and the gorgeous print pays homage to the prints of old, I loved it and had to have it. It's also a great transitional dress from winter with tights and heels or flats, into Spring/Summer with bare legs and a cute pair of sandals. This is my second Joe Brown dress and they can both be worn all year round.
Dress: Joe Brown (via Simply Be)
Cardigan: South (via Very)
Tights: Boots
The beautiful flower print <3

The other great thing about this dress is the shirred back, and in truth I could have sized down because of it. The shirred back works so well for those with a larger bust and there's ample stretch so you feel nothing but completely comfortable all day.

Spring is definitely in the air and this dress is a perfect celebration of this wonderful coming season - I look forward to wearing this on many more occasions :)

'til next time.
