They say birds of a feather stick together and this past week there have been a fair few floral lovers flocking to one London Borough in particular. The Chelsea Flower Show has been in full swing and has had the capital in a floral frenzy {just search #chelseainbloom on Insta to see all the fantastic flower displays that have been popping up} We couldn’t help but take some inspiration and so thought we’d style up some blooming marvellous {geddit} outfits in a floral lookbook: one set that are bright, light and bold versus more subtle prints and dark grounds. Hell, we’ve even dipped our toes into the video world and created a film too. Bring on the flower power…

A peony for your thoughts…!?

Oh how we love these floral midi’s. Is there anything better on a sunny day that flouncing around in a swishy dress? Ok, don’t answer that but it’s pretty fun. This bright multi coloured dress isn’t for the faint hearted but love the unique painterly print and flattering cut {sadly sold out just after we shot it but similar here} The asymmetric tiers of this midi dress, plus dropped waist and extra frills tick all the boxes when it comes to a floral dress and this seasons Maximalist trend. more is more remember.

There’s something nice about wearing black when the sun is shining. We know, that’s weird, right?

Perhaps it’s because it looks so good against tanned skin {ours is currently out of a bottle but don’t tell anyone} and the fact that you just can’t go wrong with it. When it comes to a floral print a dark background like these 2 screams classic and classy. Even in this mini short playsuit the black print and box, baggy silhouette has a fun but elegant feel. If you are opting for something this short this Summer then we’d say look for the oversize shapes and cinch in at the waist, like Alice has here. Say no thank you to bodycon or tight shorts even if you body can wear them. Short, floaty and flirty.

If you read our last fashion post you will know we are slightly tea dress crazy ATM and this one had as at helloooo, with it’s black and peachy colour palette. Aside from the fact that they are so bloody flattering, the thing about a tea dress is we just love them for the daytime, styled with a chunky flat sandal or Converse boot for that Cali-cool girl look, or dressed up for an event. Picnic or party perfect aswell as a dinner date or as best dressed wedding guest. Men love ’em, women love ’em, this is one style we’ll be wearing all Summer long.
