Styling a floral dress in the colder months

dress

Midi and maxi dresses have a place in my heart, so I don’t want to stop at summer and put them away for a year. I’m going to keep my legs out until they physically freeze and fall off.

Okay, not literally.

But I recently bought this midi dress from Nobody’s Child in a sale. Mainly because I was feeling sad that I had to return a beautiful pair of trousers because I read the sizing wrong online. So what do I do? Naturally buy more clothes online, of course.

The floral design of this dress is really simple, it actually reminds me of some wallpaper I saw once… I think it’s the cut of the dress which makes it so damn cute.

I decided to go for the classic tee shirt under dress look. Even though I’m braving my legs out as it gets colder, I’m not a complete moron. (Although some might disagree).

Then I topped it off with my trusted vintage coat. I should really get a new one now, to mix things up a bit. And I have been looking, but you know when you’re just not sure if anything ever will be as good as what you’ve already got? Because, well, do I really need a new one? Yeah, that’s the state I’m currently in.


Now it’s down to the feet with my Polley Dr Martens. Not my favourite, but my go to pair as they compliment pretty much every outfit going.

It’s such a cosy little look, if I do say so myself.

Minus the white tee, plus a pair of heeled boots, a leather jacket and some accessories, this dress will be perfect for a night out as well.

  1. I have always loved the floral print. It has been everywhere lately and I am so glad. This is a super nice dress. I have never thought of wearing it on top of a tee-shirt but why not after all 🙂 xx corinne

    1. It’s such a cute dress, isn’t it? Yeah, you should definitely try it! I think it’s a shame to save dresses only for spring and summer. Plus, it gives a different angle to the outfit and can look quite cute! X

  2. I absolutely love floral prints. They’re so versatile and brighten up any look.
    Because I’m petite I tend to avoid maxi dresses which is a shame because there are so many beautiful ones!

    1. I may have a solution to that problem… If you like the patterns of maxi dresses a lot, maybe you could get one and cut it / stitch it so it’s shorter? It may be a bit of work, but worth it? Haha!
