cake bouquet


Like a lot of girls, I absolutely adore florals in every colour scheme and flower variety, and if we laid out all our floral-patterned clothing items on the floor we'd create a pretty extravagant and psychadelic-looking garden bed indeed. However by itself, a floral pattern has the potential to look a little bland. This layered skirt from Bardot was exactly what I was looking for- it takes a beautiful bouquet of pastel floral shades, and instantly adds an extra dimension and flair with the three-tiered design, almost resembling a cake!

To accompany the structured skirt I thought it would be fun to also add this boxy bag from Forever New! If you like it, I'm doing a giveaway of this exact bag, including a goodies pack inside :) Still sorting out the bits and bobs right now but hooopefully the giveaway will be up soon! So watch this space :)

Top: Tokito from Myer
Hat: Urban Outfitters
Pastel purple belt: ASOS
Skirt: Bardot
Bag: Forever New (giveaway soon including this bag!)
Necklace: Equip
Rings: Diva









 



Sorry if I've also been a bit late in getting to some people's replies! Been pretty busy lately but I sure will get to all your lovely blogs soon enough. As well as post up the giveaway. Lol *tired panda eyes*

  19. I've been creeping your blog for a long time now from Soompi, and your outfits are gorgeous. Your blog has inspired me to create one about my journey to get a nice, toned body, in hopes that I can start a blog like yours one day and not be ashamed about my figure.

    PS Your rose ring is awesome.

  39. awwwww Izzy these photos made me smile ahh the warm weather !! Ive been freezing my ass off in Canada and Philadelphia its suppose to be spring time over there but its been so weird ive been rugged up more so than i would in australia cos it just doesnt get that cold.
    BUT dropped by NY for bit and the weathers quite warm and pleasant but not warm enough for bare legs and arms though! You look adorably pretty as always, teach me how to dress in neutrals >_< i totally suck and incorporate too much black into everything !

  59. haha "and psychadelic-looking garden bed indeed" <-- I really liked that, it made me laugh. So true about anything floral catches my eye- at this point I have to stop myself from buying anything floral because I remind myself that I basically have that dress in 8 different versions hanging in my closet. But what can you do?

    I love your outfit, you look like you're about to go have tea by a small white table in a garden. I think it's the hat that does it (and that made me fall in love with how sweet it is), it really pulls together that whole look.
