The Power of the Flower....

Spring has finally sprung.....or has it?! I don't know about you but the weather has been so changeable lately I don't know whether I'm coming or going. It makes it very awkward trying to decide what to pack for my work travels because it can be sunny in one place and snowing further North.

Weather, sort yourself out please, so I can get on with the important job of spring cleaning both wardrobe and house. Thankyou!

Anyway little rant over, lets pretend that Spring is in full bloom. It is most definitely my favourite season. There's nothing like a bit of sunshine to make me want to start having a good sort out and then filling my newly spring cleaned house with fresh blooms (tulips are my absolute favourites).

Floral prints either ditsy or bold, seem to be everywhere I look at the moment and unusually I am being more drawn to them than any other print when I'm window shopping or having a browse online.

When I was younger I tended to associate floral prints with that 'mumsy Laura Ashley' look but these days the high street makes it so easy to incorporate a pretty print and look both feminine and modern.

I recently purchased a floral print chiffon blouse from good ol' Primarni and received so many compliments when wearing it that I definitely want to invest in some more floral pieces.

Below are some of my favourites that are available online at the moment. I'm hoping that the ASOS dip back shirt will be joining my new Spring wardrobe sometime soon.
