rose from the ashes

 Floral crown: Urban Outfitters
Lavender knit: local boutique
Crochet shorts: c/o Chicwish
Clutch: Dorothy Perkins
Starfish cuff: Ebay
Band rings: ASOS
Shoes: lovelyshoes.net
why 'rose from the ashes'? well when my boyfriend was doing his post-process editing he added this lovely, smoky dulled-out effect onto all the photos that was reminiscent of some fantasy film setting. I didn't expect it to complement my outfit which was full of springtime pastels and florals, but the wintry feel of the background provided a surprisingly pretty contrast! So the 'ash' is for the background and the 'rose' is for my punny little way of mentioning the floral crown lol.

I love my new Dorothy Perkins glitter clutch with the scalloped flap edges! The shape and structure  are just so perfect, and adds so much understated elegance to any outfit. And yes there is actually stuff inside the clutch, although it looks empty! I've fit in an iPhone and a coin purse stuffed with keys, coins and notes in there- I guess another perk of the clutch is that it retains its smooth, flat envelope shape even when it's got your going out essentials inside.

I was honestly in the biggest rush to put this outfit together- I've been so pooped from work that I didn't even have the energy to pull it together properly. I made the dire mistake of mixing silvers with gold (glitters on the clutch with the jewellery) and I didn't even have any bling around my unfashionably bare neck. Oh well, I felt like such a woodland princess with this gorgeous cream and pink floral crown on my head, that it didn't even really matter what I wore underneath :)

  19. I love the greyed out colours of the photos, it's a really nice contrast against the pretty outfit. I honestly would never have guessed this outfit was rushed unless you'd said, you look beautiful & I think the floral crown & the cuff are all the accessories this outfit needs! :)

  22. I'm back from being hiatus from commenting ;_; I have missed so many of your posts, why are you so proactive and pretty ;_;
    I love how dainty your headband is, you look like a metropolis mermaid in your lace shorts! This airy-fairy theme is incorporating itself into your outfits now :3
    I do love the smoky effect, maybe because too many florals would be such a garish background but this works perfectly to highlight you :D The clutch is such a elegant statement piece, I love how it doesn't look bulky when there's stuff in it!! I hope work hasn't been exercising you too much, rest up and stay beautiful n_n

  23. Oh, so soft and romantic! I love lace shorts so much (but my mum would probably kill me if I wore them, thinking it was underwear XD), and they really stand out against the white/off white shades.

  24. Those shoes look so comfortable Izzi! You look gorgeous with your unfashionable bare neck lol Less is more, remember.
