Turning Heads #Linkup- Soft Watercolor Florals



Hello Ladies!

Yes! The florals are back ladies! I of course, as you have seen enjoy wearing a multitude of styles, lace, shift dresses, white looks, some trends, rompers, boho .I also love vintage or vintage inspired and of course, florals. I probably lean to the romantic side as far as dressing, but enjoy jewel tones with my red hair. Florals have always appealed to me, even as a little girl.


This dress, made by a company, Paper Dolls, and bought on ASOS, caught my attention with its painted like quality, soft blended colors of pinks, greens and blue hues.

It was time. Bring on the floral!

I also love the sweetheart neckline and pencil styled dress.






Dress: Paper Doll; ASOS, Purse: Kate Spade, Shoes: Zara ( poshmark)  Earrings: Charing Charlie

Here are the ladies that “caught our eyes” this week:

Most clicked was Annette of Lady of Style for her Boho inspired look in black and white with this fab accessory. We know she is lovely in these palazzeo pants as well !


For a Trendy Look, Catherine of Not Dressed as Lamb, wearing this Gingham dress, that I am going to have to borrow, looks amazing as it wraps around her waist and has a fun 50s skirt style.


It is hard to pick you know? So many styles, so pretty…. One of my favs for this week is Yana from a Handful of Stories. Is it a surprise that I love the romance and femininity of this dress?

    Jess I’m behind with my linking up (out all day in London yesterday) … how lovely to come and see that you featured my gingham dress!! Thank you so much!

    Your dress is beautiful – it goes without saying that the print is lovely – but what I really love is the texture of the fabric. It makes a lovely dress really, really gorgeous.

    Thank you SO much for hosting the link up, it seems to go from strength to strength each week which is great 🙂

      Thanks so much Catherine! I hope to do my best as far as the linkup goes. Paper Dolls dresses, I love they have kind of a vintage feel to it, and yes the texture is so cool a surprise when one is buying on line. I know you see my florals and hope you dont tire, I have created many looks this week ( all white, emerald maxi ) without florals, just loved this print too.Hopeyou enjoyed the day in London! xx

    Walking into your wardrobe must be like walking into a botanical garden in full bloom, Jess! This is so feminine on you without being ‘twee’. The sweetheart neckline so suits you. I love the textured feel of the material. It’s like a canvas for the watercolour florals.
