Sweet Florals in Beautiful Colours!!
Another hot, sunny day, another beautiful boho dress!
These photos are all taken at our local beach in Wollongong – it’s such a delightful place to live most of the time!!
The large, floral prints are not going away any time soon it seems and I have immersed myself in a few of them.
It’s a beautiful, wrap style that ties on the waist.
V-necks are always flattering and this dress is a comfortable, fitted shape with a cute, high-low skirt.
Frills and Flounces…
The hem is a nice deep frill and that frill continues around the neckline emphasising the décolletage.
The rich purple, lavender, citrus and turquoise all blend so beautifully.
The wide variety of colours in the dress enables lots of different pairings.
I’ve worn it with black but I do love the citrus and turquoise pieces I’ve worn.
Bringing Back the Romance!
This is a very romantic and feminine look and to me that’s so important!
I’ve said before that I love the swishing of skirts around my legs and to be in touch with my womanly side in a world that doesn’t always celebrate such.
The feminine emphasis has continued with the addition of this sweet little shrug, a fringed scarf, a turquoise necklace or wooden beads, bracelets and sunnies…
Covering My Bases!
As I’ve said in multiple other posts, I’m standing in my truth and speaking it, embracing my femininity and enjoying it!
That has meant from the inside out.
Under this dress I wanted smooth, sleek lines so opted for an all-in-one bodysuit..
This one is so gorgeous it could easily be worn as outer wear as the bodice is luxuriously delicate and pretty – a satin bra cup with a layer of lace over the top of it and a nice wide shoulder with a catch at the top at the back – it’s a stunner!!
The sweetheart neckline and the high-cut hip are the final finish to a beautiful piece of lingerie guaranteed to bring out our inner goddess!!
Thank you for joining me in my little corner of the web and I would love to hear what you think of this dress, lingerie or whatever in the comments below or leave a like or follow – oh!! And enjoy your Saint Valentine’s Day!!
