I am no stranger to florals, but I always find them trickier to style than other prints. While the safe styling go-to is always nudes or pastels, when F&F challenged me to style this open back dress, I thought I’d aim for something a little more edgy. Florals and lots of black? It put a smile on my face!
What I Wore:
Floral print open back dress from F&F
Slash neck 3/4 sleeve top
Past season suede heels from Duo (similar here)
Past season gem belt (similar here)
Laser-cut Evelina clutch bag from Lagom
I currently have £150 to spend in accumulated gift cards and no idea what I’m spending them on. In fact, I always seem to get wallet-numbingly frugal when it comes to spending gift cards. Sales, however? The minute I find a good deal the cash is flashed.
Secret Sales (click here for an invite!) is one of the sites that always ‘gets me’. Their latest sales include the above: a Pussycat London white v-neck floral dress (£12 from £28, belt swap, add a blazer, BOOM!), Paula Soler woven platform wedges (£39 from £97 and my ultimate summer shoe!), and red iLuv earphones (£7 from £15, and much needed for my upcoming trip to Berlin). Yes…I’m justifying my spending via blog.
