Friday Frock O’clock

There’s just one more week left of August, one week of summer, until September rolls round and the new season begins in ernest.


Leopard Jacquard Skater Dress

As such I’ve chosen a transitional dress…

I couldn’t go with colour this week, the brights of summer seem gone even though the weather is warm, but I’m ready for new fashion all the same and this fits the bill. While the seasons and styles may be changing, monochrome and animal print are eternal ;)

So, what’s everyone doing this weekend? I’m planning a social marathon ahead of the most exciting wedding of the year next week… Jessica’s!

Happy weekend folks,

Love,
Rebecca

Friday Frock O’clock

After featuring this dress, 2 weeks ago, I have seen striped dresses everywhere and ended up picking one up in Marks and Spencers, but unfortunately can’t find it online to share today. Always a spring time staple, it also happens to be bang on the monochrome trend right now, so if you’re looking to invest in something that will go the fashion mile this season but stay in your wardrobe much longer, it’s a no-brainer. Here are 6 striped monochrome dresses (I deliberately left out spring time navy and white combos to stay within the monochrome trend,) for different body shapes and wearability, all of which are under £50.

  1. Skater stripe dress, Next £50
  2. Monochrome Midi dress £14.99 New Look
  3. H&M £19.99
  4. Wide stripe £39.99
  5. Combination stripe dress £35.99
  6. Block bottom black dress £35.99, all Zara.

Now all you guys have to do is pick a favourite. Answers in the comments box please!

Interior Inspiration: Emerald City

It’s safe to say, green has never been top of my choice of colours for decorating. Yet the striking nature of most green interiors means that I have been mesmerised by some of the rooms I have collected here to inspire you today.


1 // 2 // 3 // 4

Historically, green conjures up period interiors, beautiful stately homes and cosy country log piles. If you’ve got enough light (or want to work with a lack of it instead of fight it,) green can look elegant and even magical.

A complete contrast however is the modern look. Emerald looks amazing in a black and white setting of mixed with patterns and prints blended in fabrics and accents like this pendant light shade.

I fell in love with this tropical room with a colonial feel, brass accents and that lush velvet sofa against a backdrop of greenery.

I think my favourite way to see emerald however is as a stand alone accent in a room. A piece of art maybe, luxurious fabrics or painted statement pieces of furniture.

I’m not sure I’ll be rushing to decorate in this shade… green isn’t a colour on my usual decorating palette, but the images are inspiring none the less. Have I inspired you today?

Friday Frock O’clock

Hurrah! Friday Frock O’clock is back. I was debating whether to revisit friday frock after the brief hiatus that was January Joy, but then I flicked through a magazine and spotted this fabulous striped number and fell in love. I think it’s an appropriate return to one of my favourite features :)


Back Detail Stripe Dress, £60 – Warehouse.co.uk

Somehow, this Warehouse dress captures my fashion mood perfectly. It’s fresh and clean, perfect for spring and suits my current love for clean lines and striking design.

Look out for lots more fashion returning to Florence Finds for February! :)

Have a great weekend readers!

It’s no secret that I’m not a lover of black. That’s not to say I dislike it on other people but it’s not a colour I like on myself. Recently though, I’ve fallen for a new trend, monochrome, particularly when the trend makes use of lace.

The other trend that feels current right now is the not just longer but fuller skirts I’m seeing. This dress combines both and a hint of tulle thrown in. It’s pushing all my buttons.


Ankara dress by Beloved at OASIS – £79

Available from OASIS but by Beloved, (OASIS are stocking a few handpicked items from other brands that share their aesthetic,) it’s feminine yet striking and feels modern.

Do you like it readers? Have a great weekend!

The warmer weather towards the end of this week has really turned my attention towards cooler dressing and for the first time in a long time, I thought of a maxi dress. Once a style staple there seems to have been a bit of an absence of maxi’s in stores recently, or maybe I haven’t looked because I’ve been tired of them. Today I really wanted to find one that worked for stylish and casual occasions, perhaps even work. You know how I love a one-dress-does-it-all situation!


Reiss Athena Dress – £117 (down from £235)

Todays dress is from Reiss, in inky black and off white with a really unusual pattern, a not quite maxi, midi hem line and a really flattering silhouette. I love the slight rise and fall hem and it feels modern whilst also being classic enough for a formal occasion. It would work as easily at work with a blazer as at a summer function.

And if I was wearing it, I’d be feeling fierce, but also doing some obligatory twirling ;)

Big Friday Love,
Rebecca
