You only need to look in any high-street store at the moment to see that the volume of the average sleeve has been well and truly turned up a notch to reveal ridiculously pretty frilled sleeves, cuffs, shoulder ruffles and plenty of feminine touches. If you love your floral prints too, this Zara Midi Dress will be right up your street. I invested in this dress when the weather was still pretty freezing (hence the reason for the black tights) but as the sun makes an appearance I'll be whipping my tights off and wearing this dress with just boots or sandals, hooray!
I've already worn this dress for a few special occasions such as a christening as well as Afternoon Tea (because dressing up for Afternoon Tea is a must) and it's already a firm favourite in my wardrobe. The shape of the dress isn't all that flattering but as I loved the print so much I added a vintage waist belt to accentuate the waist as my body shape is quite 'straight up and down' so it's nice to create the illusion of curves by making the waist look smaller.
The boots are also by Zara and they are so, so comfy - you can find them here. The only thing I don't like about them is there seems to be a plastic layer to cover the sole which is now peeling off day by day so if anyone has had the same problem with these boots, comment below! That's a minor fault that I think is down to the bargain price tag of £29.99 but otherwise they are perfect. I'm just confused as to why Zara seem to do this with some of their footwear but maybe it's just me!?
Here's the beautiful print in all it's floral glory....
