A Wild Roses Dress & A Wild Horses Clutch

Panama hat, pink floral dress & black skinnies

I think we’ve seen this silhouette on me before, haven’t we…? Yes – another dress over trousers, this time a 50s style floral print dress over black skinny jeans, with a hat, heels and fierce belt from Asos thrown in for good measure. And whilst I adore the whole black/white/pink thing I’ve got going on, I can’t gush enough about this stunning French Connection wild horses clutch I was gifted by the good people at FCUK. It is so beautifully crafted – combining a hand drawn horses print fabric and a metallic frame, it’s like a little work of art. I know it’s essentially an evening-out bag, but it still has enough room for your phone, lipstick, compact, money and keys (what else does a girl need). It also has a long chain that cleverly folds away into the bag so it’s all neat and doesn’t spoil the beautiful lines.

As my bedroom is mostly black and white I think I’m going to have to arrange it on my dressing table so I can gaze at it when it’s not being used. Do you own any accessories (or shoes or items of clothing) that are so beautiful that they need to be displayed in your home?! Let me know in the comments!

    Perfect dress with jeans, more perfection with added pieces. So great.

    LOVE this look on you! I have a hard time pulling off the dress over pants (because I'm short.

    The print on that dress is lovely!

    Beautiful. I like the mix of boyishness with the hat and girly with the pink dress. They play off each other nicely, especially with the addition of the belt. Gorgeous photos!

    Very nice, a bit youthful, but I like the belt with the dress. Brings a nice tension between the girly floral dress and the "rough" belt.
    Indeed the clutch is a work of art. I can see why you want to display it. I never do. Always afraid it might get dusty or dirty.

    Love the dress over trousers look… definitely want to try it soon!
    Pinning this!

    Love this look on you! The pink floral just POPS with your hair color. You are making me believe that leggings make any dress work.
    I just went over to vote for you. Good luck!!

    that outfit is so hip, love that little clutch

    This is one of my favorite outfits of yours. I am horrible at wearing pants with dresses and will need to play with my dresses to see which ones are best with pants. The belt & purse are both awesome!

    So pretty, and a very fresh summer look. Fab as always, C!

    I am in love with this! The belt totally pulls the whole outfit together. I am now officially on the look out for a short and sweet dress to completely shamelessly copy this outfit!
