Roses are red

Abandoning woolen gloves and home knitted scarves always feels like the beginning of someone good, something new. Walking out without my coat on, makes me feel a bit like a butterfly, crawling out of a cocoon of sensible clothing. (Even if the sun isn't shining!) Out with the layers of jumpers that no longer make my heart sing quite like delicate summer clothing, and in with the prettiest of dresses. And this dress is one of the prettiest I own. It swishes when I walk, making me want to twirl around all day, like I did when I was a little girl. If twirling around was an occupation, it would surely be my dream job! I've teamed it with new Salvatore Ferragamo shoes, the bargain of the year at £6.90, a far cry from the three figure price in store! And a beautiful rose flower crown, which I won as part of a giveaway by the beautiful Bethan, from the Pale Female. Hearing that I won made my day! Bethan made the crown herself - she's a very clever girl! I really love it, and know I will be wearing it a lot. The box the gifts arrived in, has now become my cats new playhouse, pixie couldn't wait to jump in as soon as I was opening it up! So thank you very much Bethan, from me and two furballs! It's been great watching them running around excited over it, especially when I've not been feeling too good recently. There's nothing like a mad cat to make you feel better! Well maybe a new dress, ay?!
My earrings are also new, from the lovely Viktorija at Andsmile. I bought a lucky dip bag from her a few weeks ago and cheekily asked if it was possible to have the swallow earrings, which match my necklace. It was a very lucky bag indeed, as Viktoria agreed to send these beautiful birdies along with so many other beautiful things. 

Dress - Asos £32.50
 Shoes - Salvatore Ferragamo - Charity shop £6.90
Flower crown - Bethan at Pale Female
Earrings - Andsmile £7

I hope everyone's having a lovely weekend, and spoiling your mums and grandmas! I've just had afternoon tea with my Mum and Grandma, which was delicious!
Happy Sunday!

  1. I am so jealous that you can go outside in just a dress. The snow here is just starting to melt. I love your flower crown :)

  2. Awww, that frock is just beautiful!

  4. I would steal that dress if I had half a chance! Too wonderful. Enjoy the arrival of Spring - we are just going into Winter. You look gorgeous, and I hope that some easier days come soon.

  5. Love your headpiece :) I can't wait to come out of my cocoon properly and just wear shorts until autumn *sigh*

  6. Very nice outfit! You are like from a fairytale :) M&MFASHIONBITES
