Flirty Florals And Beige Linen Dresses For Spring!!

“Mint Velvet” Celeste Print Midi Dress 

Time works differently in the fashion world. While most of us are thinking of packing away our cosy woollen sweaters and suede ankle boots, designers are planning for the year ahead.

Checking out the major brands online for Spring/Summer, the dominant colours seem to be yellow, neon brights and neutrals (which I love).  I’ve also noticed a lot of florals, plus, a touch of tie-dye. 

Style wise, there are Spring jackets plus repeated themes such as puffy sleeves – very popular in the 80’s.  I remember them well!

Maybe, I’m being a little over zealous, planning which dresses I may like from the Spring outfits currently on display, while leaving the house in warm tights, woollens and big cosy coats.

But, there’s nothing wrong with having a wish list.  While doing my research, I did notice some dresses I’d be excited to wear when the weather warms up.  There are also some options out there that I can wear from now through till Summer.

All it takes to transform an item into a wintertime-approved piece is a little layering action with the help of turtlenecks, cardigans or tights.

Now, with Springtime just around the corner, it’s time to check our wardrobes.

I try to be organised in my wardrobe (not always succeeding), separating my Spring/Summer from my Autumn/Winter.  I will then go through my current items and decide which clothes I am keeping, or not, as the case may be.

While perusing the internet and having a wander around the shops, I found two dresses that caught my eye, which I have recently purchased.  I thought you may like to see how I have styled them.

The first dress is the “Celeste Print Midi” from “Mint Velvet”.  This is a “fit and flare” style.  The print is floral.  The colours are ink blue and blush pink.  The dress has buttoned three-quarter sleeve cuffs, which I find so flattering. The hem has asymmetric ruffles, which, again, I find flattering and which. I must add, attracted me to it.

The second dress is from “Mango”.  It’s a beige linen mix material, with a flared design and a midi length.  Because of the colour, this dress is very versatile, and I know I will get a lot of wear from it – either with heels or by adding various jackets.

  2. Love both dresses. Thanks for sharing on Muttonstyle Monday. I admit to only buying from Mint Velvet in the sales.

    • Hi Anna,
      I know what you mean. This Mint Velvet dress was for a special occasion. I was lucky
      enough to get 20% off at the time – otherwise I may have not have bought it to be honest, as it
      was out of my price range. I either wait for a discount or the sales. I love a bargain!

  3. I love your floral dress! The colors are so pretty and I love how it has a watercolor effect on the print! I also love the dress from Mango.

    • Thank you Lanae. The Mint Velvet dress has reduced in price, you should check it out if you like it. There is some stunning
      clothes for the Spring/Summer season. Lovely vibrant colours and styles.

    Love those dresses, especially the mint velvet – I hadnt even noticed it online but it is lovely, looks perfect on you

    • Thank you Juliet. There’s some lovely dresses and skirts coming through at the moment, in vibrant prints and colours. Shame the weather is so cold. It still feels very wintry.
      I’ve just bought a lovely red and white midi print skirt from New Look that I can’t wait to wear.

  5. I have not heard of the first brand, but love the colors in the print. Lovely! When the warm weather rolls around I wear more dresses than anything! Love Mango! I have been buying more from Mango this season myself, they have a wonderful Spring collection. I used to be against linen and now LOVe it, as it does keep you cool in the heat. Love how versatilel the tan dress is. Pretty with the leopard belt.
    Have a great day!

    • Thank you Jess. I too love to wear dresses when the weather warms up. I always check the new stock at Mango.
      They seem to get it right a lot of the time, and I know i will get a lot of wear out of the linen dress.
      Enjoy your Monday!!

  6. I like having a wish list. I tweak it as time goes along. Today I finally bought a pair of black riding boots which I had actually planned to purchase last year. I am trying not to impulse buy so that I know I will get much wear from what I buy. Your floral dress is gorgeous and it looks really pretty with the booties.

    • I’m also trying not to impulse buy. It’s hard to do sometimes, especially
      If there’s a really good discount. Love the sound of your black
      riding boots. They’ll look cool with everything.
