By now you have probably gathered that I'm pretty into floral prints. I just can't get enough of them! I have plenty of floral print dresses in my wardrobe, but until recently I was missing a poppy print dress. This gorgeous orange and white poppy dress is from Warehouse. As you can see in the picture it is a one-shoulder dress with ruffled detailing over the neckline. I find one shoulder dresses very flattering, but this one also has a tie around the middle to enhance the waist. The material is very lightweight (perfect for summer) yet firm enough for it to hold its shape. It also has a zipper on the side so it is easy to get on and off, though I always get a little confused about where to put my head and arms in one shoulder dresses (please say I'm not the only one!)
As the pattern on the dress is such a striking colour, I decided that I didn't really need to dress it up too much with jewellery. Less is more! Instead I thought I'd enhance the colour even more by pairing it with my favourite orangey-red heels. It's funny because I would never have gone for these heels usually, but I'm so glad I picked them up as I've found that they go with so many of my dresses.
Since the dress has ruffled detailing, I thought I'd keep my hair simple by straightening it. I also think an up-do would look great, something effortlessly chic like a high bun / top knot. This dress is a perfect 'going-out dress' for summer, but it also looks equally as good paired with black tights and a faux leather jacket. I actually took a picture in my leather jacket but it was far too blurry to include (sorry).
Warehouse has been one of my go-to stores for many years as they always have a fabulous range of dresses. There are so many gorgeous day time and going-out dresses on their website at the moment, so be sure to check them out come pay day!
