“Florals? Groundbreaking…”


… Were the immortally savage words of Miranda Priestly in The Devil Wears Prada, but it seems to me that she was a bit too quick to judge, as its years since the book and the film came out and florals, for the most part she was wrong. Season after season there are pretty florals everywhere…

And, I’ve decided it’s high time my wardrobe became a little less black, and a little more floral (even typing that it makes me pull a face…)

But I’ve found the perfect ‘gate way drug’ to becoming a bit more floral this Summer in this cute little Zara number.

I love the collar on it which makes it perfect to throw on for work with a pair of nude heels, or alternatively keep it casual by teaming it with a pair of white trainers… There’s something about this dress which feels very Cher from Clueless, which is just fine by my book :)…


I always thought Cher Horowitz had her finger on the pulse more than any Vogue editor anyway 😉.

    I love florals too! I’m really not a big dress-wearer (it’s always plain ol’ jeans and t-shirts for me) but I have 2 ‘nice’ dresses for occasions and things and they’re both floral! I wore one yesterday to a wedding, in fact!

    This dress is gorgeous and you look absolutely beautiful!
    Also I feel really old when I realise the Devil Wears Prada film came out ELEVEN years ago!

    I LOVE those photos of you on the steps! Vogue called, they want their supermodel back! I think this is such a beautiful dress, and so versatile too, as you could dress it up or down! You look wonderful and this really suits you! Can’t wait to see more of your outfits!

    Such a great dress, floral embroidery is so in and so easy to dress up or down. Looking lovely!

    That dress is so cute, ideally matched with the shoes! Floral will never go out of style.
