Spring wishes...

Bag - Radley | Sunglasses - Topshop | Dress - French Connection | Shoes - Miss Selfridge | Necklace - New Look
Last week I bought a coat. A proper woolly winter coat. This is unheard of. Usually, by early March, I am on the high street browsing lovely spring collections and buying the prettiest, most sickeningly-floral, weather-inappropriate dress I can find and wearing it out at the first sign of blue sky and daffodils.
But, in case you hadn't noticed, the weather's been slightly... er... 'off' (for want of a better word). So, for now, I'm having to satisfy my need for pretty floral dresses and bright accessories with some serious Spring window shopping. 

First off, what a dress. I LOVE the elegant 60s style (which may or may not be something to do with my slight obsession with Mad Men and, more specifically, Betty Draper) and the subtle, fresh lily print makes a lovely change from the usual ditsy prints you see in Spring.

How amazing is the gorgeous green Radley city bag? There's a lot of neon accessories around at the moment but, personally, neon just doesn't do it for me. I love this slightly softer shade of meadow green, it's still fresh and bright but doesn't overpower the dress - it's a colour that'll see me through all of spring and summer easily! I'm also eyeing up Radley's purses at the moment - I want the dog in a teacup purse... it's a freakin' dog in a freakin' teacup. 

Okay, weather. You've made your point now. I know, we humans are idiots who are polluting your beautiful world with greenhouse gases and killing polar bears with our factories and all... but this is getting beyond ridiculous. Please let this cold-shoulder thing you have going on blow over. I wants to get my floral on. KTHXBAI.
