Flare and flourishWednesday, March 18, 2015
I am thrilled to share these pictures with you from the weekend, they turned out to really represent both the changing of the seasons and my personal frame of mind. The sun was dancing through the canopy of the trees, just breaking through with golden rays before the clouds veiled it away a while longer. The grass is looking a little greener and all around the colours are noticeably getting bolder.
This dress was a purchase on a whim, a £1 charity shop buy if my memory serves me correctly. While navy blue is by no means a colour I particularly favour, the flared lace sleeves and neat unfitted body to the dress grabbed my attention. I love the lace overlay, especially the scalloped hem and how it's such a cute short skirt.
Seventies styling is going to be everywhere this summer, hurrah, and the sixties/seventies details are so 'me' it almost hurts. I love wearing my hair loose in unruly waves, with a little make up but not too much. I love a mix of jangly bangles and a handful of rings. I love my platformed knee boots which make me so much taller than I rightfully ought.
I'm also loving the new flare and flourish collection from Iced Rainbow which is perfect for summer! This retro art daisy charm necklace is brilliantly bright, cheerful and groovy; yellow and orange together are a match made in heaven to my mind.
Are you joining me for summer in the seventies?
