Layered Florals

Last week we were treated to some truly tropical temperatures in London. It was glorious!!!! People were so smiley and friendly: the daily tube commute became a delight because everyone was in such high spirits. I don’t know if you’ve ever seen London in these conditions, but we come alive when the sun has got his hat on. More importantly, it gives us a chance to bust out our summer dresses.

Fast forward a week, and we’re back in cooler temps, with the odd sprinkle of rain (and biblical hail if you caught my insta stories this week).

Now, personally I don’t want to give up on my summer dresses just yet. I need the floral prints in my life and I’m not ready to reach to the back of my wardrobe for my jumpers. Cue layered looks like this one…

Heading to a date night in the city I needed to stay warm and also wanted to wear a summer dress, so I combined the two for this layered floral look.

For my take on summer layers, I went for black jeans to keep the look simple and not too fussy. Since the layers already add a deeper dimension to the look, I didn’t want to overdo it with a complicated colour palette. The rusty red floral print dress also gave me an excuse to pile on my fave red lippy.

The biker was a necessary evil to avoid the to the goosebump situation (if i’m totally honest I ended up nabbing my boyfriends mac as an extra layer by the end of the night as well to avoid frostbite).

On the accessories front I opted for an old red ZARA bag to pull out more red accents from the print for some extra zing. Heels were a must but I would certainly wear this look again with red trainers for a more casual look.

I hope everyone is having a fabulous week and that the sun comes back really soon! Lets be honest, we’re nicer humans when the sun shines…. no? just me then! 🙂
