Blooming Botanicals



Today I'm so excited to be taking part in the London Times Spring LookBook.  The moment I saw this floral dress, I fell in love with it...and when I tried it on, I was completely sold.  The fit is incredibly flattering & the bold botanical print is spot-on for spring.  Since the style is more feminine, I added a modern metal-plate belt & some edgy lace-up heels to balance out the girly shape of the dress.  This is the perfect piece for all those graduations, weddings, & bridal/baby showers that the coming season brings (and it's under $80)!  You can see more of their lookbook, along with the other 6 Spring Statements this week at London Times.





What I'm wearing:
c/o London Times dress (here; get 20% off with code LT20), Prabal Gurung for Target heels (similar here or here), Belt via eBay (similar here or here), Expressions NYC clutch (similar here or here), Forever 21 earrings (here), Lips: Maybelline Fifth Ave Fuschia

This dress is beautiful! It really is so flattering and would be just as amazing with flats and a colorful purse or floppy hat as it is here with heels and gold details. Love!

I like that you took a feminine dress and styled it with edgier accessories, i.e. the metal belt and cage shoes. This keeps look from getting too "Bree Vanderkamp".
