Birthday Blooms

Happy Birthday to me! 27 years young today, which makes me feel SO old compared to many bloggers out there! I thought I’d celebrate the day by showing off a gorgeous dress I picked up this week, every body knows that Birthdays mean pretty dresses, right?

Dress c/o F&F | Shoes: Esprit via Sarenza | Satchel c/o Brit Stitch

I was sent this dress as part of F&F’s “How You’re Wearing It” Inspire Me feature, which is perfect for finding ideas on how to wear the season’s hottest trends. I was asked to pick something from the Candy Cool collection, which is chock-full of the most beautiful pastel pieces including this baby blue daisy organza fit and flare dress. I just love this dress, the fit is perfect and I’m loving the combination of my two favourite things right now- pastels and daisies.
When a dress is this pretty I like to keep things quite simple in terms of accessories. I popped on some nude block heeled sandals by Esprit which are the perfect height for day time, and have a lovely double ankle strap detail which stops them being potentially quite bland. I kept jewellery very minimal and just added a vintage style bangle from New Look to bring a touch of sparkle.
I never usually feature my bag on the blog, I tend to use the same one daily and it gets repetetive, however I couldn’t resist pairing my baby pink satchel from Brit Stitch with this dress, making it the perfect outfit for a dinner date or picnic, or for just feeling pretty on a summer day.
Are you loving pastels as much as me? How would you have styled the dress?

    Happy Birthday! I was in Tesco at the weekend and saw a similar style dress in white and fluro orange – looked very nice indeed but I think I prefer this mint green colour 🙂 Hope you have a great day. x

  12. Happy Birthday Laura,
    You are definitely not old, I’m 31 in a few months…I’m old!
    You look beautiful in that dress, I think I would wear it with flat shoes and a clashing bag just for maximum fun effect!

  13. Happy birthday again!! I’m going to be a super picky and demanding follower here but is it possible you could do one big pic of an outfit too as well as the collage as on my phone (which is largely where I read my post), its hard to see details and this dress looks super pretty from what I can see so is love to see it in detail! Otherwise, don’t worry, just wanted to look at the dress more!!!! X

  14. Happy birthday!! That dress is really cute and I agree that it looks great paired with that bag.

  15. Happy Birthday Laura! I hope you have a wonderful day xx

  18. Happy 27th Birthday!!! You look fabulous and I like the way your F&F Daisy Organza Fit and Flare Dress looks too – it’s stand-alone pretty enough that it really doesn’t require anything to be styled with it. I hope it makes you feel less old that you’re easily young enough to be my granddaughter. I remember feeling young and fit at 27 – enjoy it and have a wonderful birthday week. I hope your birthday wishes come true.

  19. Happy birthday! You look lovely. 🙂

  20. Hope it was a wonderful day for you! <3

    Absolutely lovin' the dress– the perfect outfit to celebrate your day in style I reckon 😉
