Spring Florals

Style Theory: Florals have been a wardrobe staple for years and again, in Spring/Summer 2017, the flower is the print that reigns supreme. No longer are ditsy prints enough, this season flowers go bold with large placement prints or all over floral designs that are no shrinking violets. Colours are bright and graphics are big. Go as large as you dare..

For me at the beginning of the season I am taking it step by step and this dress is my first foray into the world of florals..

Dress - Topshop £55
Biker Jacket - Nine by Savannah Miller at Debenhams £250
Trainers - Stan Smith £69
I completely love it, I am not a dress person but this is such a good length for me (I am 5ft3) fits true to size and looks just as good with trainers as with heels, the perfect day to evening dress. The lace at the back does not neatly nestle into the bend in my back but that is the only fault with it and the price I think is pretty good. Needless to say I will be wearing this a lot! 
Topshop £36
Frills and florals, this little blouse is perfect to add some prettiness to a tired winter wardrobe. It would look fab with boyfriend jeans and heels for a night out, dress down for the daytime with black boots and ankle length jeans.
Mango £79.99
This dress will take you seamlessly from winter to spring to summer. Wear now with flat buckled Givenchy-esque boots and a biker, in the spring wear with trainers, in the summer wear with flat tan sandals.
Topshop £24
Love the tie detail on the sleeves of this light top, it will look fab in the summer with denim shorts and flat tan sandals.
Topshop £30
This top looks amazing on (my friend had it on at the weekend and looked lovely in it) Just a really easy top to wear, the perfect spring going out top with my fail safe look of baggy boyfriend jeans and black heels..
Topshop £65
More of a shirt style, this is slightly more expensive that most Topshop tops but the embroidery on it is beautiful. This looks short on the model - but do note that she is 5ft8 so the smaller ladies among us won't struggle with it being too short!
H&M £39.99
This is a slightly crazy dress but really like it, with a biker jacket dressed down with a pair of trainers I think it could look pretty cool!
&Other Stories £65
Beautiful dress with a cute bow detail at the neck, again this will take you through the year, wear now with opaque tights and flat shoes in the summer wear with tan sandals.
New Look @Asos £29.99
An easy wear dress, chic and understated.
Needle and Thread £325
These are seriously 'out there' but right up my street, ticks the floral trend in the most comfortable way - although to be honest I don't think they are in my budget at the moment!
Topshop £49
This dress ticks so many trends at once, florals, ruffles, asymmetric hemline and pink..Go Topshop and Go you if you buy it! It looks gorgeous!!
Warehouse £79
This is a pretty bold blouse, it would look fab tucked into jeans with black heels. It is silk (hence the price) and looks quite designer-esque.

I am loving the florals this season and no doubt by the end of the summer I will be wandering around looking like something out of the Chelsea Flower Show (I do love a trend!) Are you a fan of florals, do you already have pieces in the wardrobe you can pull out again for this season? As always I would love to hear your thoughts and comments, until next time Fran xxx
