Spring Has Sprung

I bought this beautiful blue dress at the weekend for 70% off. The sleeves are floaty and go around the back of the dress to form a lovely cape-like effect. Worn with my favourite pink heels, it feels like Spring is here at last!





Bright blue floaty dress, £16.50 from Monsoon
Pink leather T-bar heels, £9 from Topshop
Gold jangly bangle, 50p from a little shop in Birmingham
Gold leather bow clutch, £1.50 from a charity shop
Vintage hand-painted paper and bamboo parasol, 75p from a carboot sale

Very jealous of your budding crocuses! Spring isn't here yet.

Catherine said...

So cute! I love your dress, the color of it is so pretty. And while I don't have crocuses here yet (should come up within the next week) I see little buds on the trees and it makes me happy.
