Channeling vintage florals

This weekends Carrie posts plus todays scorching weather has totally inspired me to wear my favourite vintage floral sundress-I need to wear a favourite something, as I'm off to the dentist in a little while-haha!!!

This dress is an original Marks and Spencer 80s cotton sundress thrifted from the charity shop, and is inspired on a 50s prom look. I've had it a few years now-it always makes an appearance at some point in the summer sun!!

Sharon, I love this dress and it fits you wonderfully! Another one of your amazing finds and perfect for a day when you have to do something unpleasent because it gets you in a great mood. I also think it will be lovely for fall with a caridgan and a belt-thats how I plan on wearing some of my florals! Have a great day!

Very summery and good colors for you!

Sharon, that dress looks so wonderful on you. It's soft, feminine, and a word that we don't have to be afraid to say anymore, "pretty."

That floral post with SJP is absolutely beautiful. All of those dresses are fresh, elegant, and range high on the "cute factor" scale.

Have a great day!

You'll probably have already been to the dentists by the time you read this but good luck anyway! I hate the dentist as i've had quite bad experiences with mine.
Your dress is wonderful, i love the colours!
