IN FULL BLOOM

August 10, 2015


Not usually a fan of floral prints, falling in love with this muted grey, black and white number came as a bit of a surprise! Most of the time, I find floral prints a bit too busy or loud, yet there is absolutely nothing overpowering about this understated floral print. Quite on the contrary, the overall effect I think, is rather soft and elegant. 








Initially, I envisioned pairing it with a leather jacket and a pair of black sneakers but I suppose the girly side took over and I couldn't resist wearing it with heels. Come to think of it, I couldn't resist quite a few things... like waiting to wear it on a trip I specifically got it for, rather than donning it on a  weekday afternoon outing with my hubby:) But of course, at this point I've come to accept the fact that I lack self control when it comes to cute new dresses:) ... and shoes, and bags and pretty much everything in between. Basically, if it's new I need to wear it right away, regardless! Does that happen to you guys too?

I have actually seen this dress before on Asos, but their product pictures made it look really stiff and that scratchy faux-chiffon material I remember despising as a kid! After seeing it on you - I definitely feel differently!

magnificent combo!

ayme nicole said...

I love this ASOS dress on you! I've seen it on the site before but it didn't catch my eye. Seeing it in photos makes it look a lot more flowy than it is. I'm with you on floral patterns; not a huge fan because it can be super loud and LOOK AT ME but you're totally right with how muted this is. Love it!
