Clocks spring forward - SS10 trends floral

It's officially summer time (sort of). I was woken up this morning by a small child wanting cuddles. Before I had the chance to say it is my turn for a lie in, Mr Style Eyes, reminded me that although my clock said 5am, it was actually 6am, at which point I gave in and got up. On the down side, I have been pretty tired all day, on the plus side, I got time for a bit of early morning outfit planning. I know, very sad, but it beats watching Dora the Explorer for the hundredth time.

Anyway today's outfit was is part of my No More Wants Challenge, where I create looks for SS10 using clothes already in my wardrobe. It is however a bit of a cop out as florals are always in fashion in spring and summer. I wanted to try wearing this dress in a slightly different way to the way I wore it for the whole of last summer so I tried wearing it with snake skin tights which freak me out ever so slightly as they make my legs look like snakes. I then tried a few different cardigans/ jackets. I am not sure if I can carry off the pale sort of colours of the dress with the grey jacket and it does make my hips look even larger but I like the contrast of feminine and grey casual. I couldn't resist trying with the pink cardi, one of my favourite colours.

I hate the way clocks go forward in the summertime! Makes me feel very grouchy and somewhat jetlagged, haha.

Love the ditsy floral pattern of the dress, and I think it looks gorgeous with the pink cardigan, however I feel that nude/semi-opaque tights would seem more fitting as the mixture of two patterns/textures is a little much?
