Mix & Match Mondays: Florals & Lace

For a real Spring in your Step, mix washed out florals with some pastel lace. For this take on the trend, I have put together a minty lace pinafore style dress, with a sheer embroidered blouse underneath, allowing the collar to poke out from underneath, then added the floral blazer to smarten up the look. Finally, I've thrown on some buckled boots and cable knit tights to roughen it up a bit! 
Floral brooch: Vintage, charm bracelet: Thrifted.
 
To make the look your own, add delicate and intricate pieces of jewellery - but be careful not to overload as this will take away from the importance and focus of the florals and lace. This is an instance when less = more.
Wearing: mint lace pinafore dress: Topshop, floral blazer: Primark, cable knit tights: New Look, boots: Office, white embroidered blouse: Vintage.
