Wishlist | April Showers Bring May Flowers

We're well into the month of May now and, as the old saying goes, "April showers bring May flowers" - we certainly had our share of April showers here in the UK, so it seems only fair that we have extra May flowers as well! Here are some of my top picks of the floral goodies which are around in the shops at the moment:
April Showers Bring May Flowers
Blue Hydrangea Silk Top, £99, Hobbs
White Floral Print Bikini Top, £15, & Bottoms, £12, River Island
Woven Printed Shorts, £8, Matalan
Floral Nail Wraps, £4, Paperchase
Tropical Floral Silk Scarf, £12, Accessorize
Blue Tropical Print Skater Skirt, £12.99, New Look
Latin Spirit Dress, £59.95, Joe Browns
I don't know that I'd ever wear the gorgeous Hydrangea top from Hobbs but the print is truly beautiful and once I'd seen it, I couldn't leave it out of this list! I'm hoping to have cause to buy a new bikini or two this summer (in other words, I'd like a holiday please!) and this River Island one is lovely - simple but still pretty, it'd look fab with a tan... I love Matalan for affordable additions to my summer wardrobe, and these printed shorts would be perfect with a plain white vest top and flip-flops. I've never quite got the hang of nail wraps but at £4 for 24, these pretty ones from Paperchase might be worth a try! Cooler evenings mean that a scarf will always come in handy just to keep the chill off - this silk Accessorize number is just beautiful, with its delicate floral print. The bright blue of this New Look skirt just screams summer to me, and I always find skater-style dresses and skirts very flattering. Finally, the Latin Spirit dress from Joe Browns; again, I'm not sure when I'd wear it, but I think it's just stunning, the flower stem detailing is so unusual and the adjustable hem is a lovely touch.
Are you a fan of floral prints? Do you like any of these pieces? What's your favourite way to wear floral prints? I'd love to know!!

  2. Absolutely loving everything you have included, I really love a floral print especially in the summer time. I have this floral kimono that I have had for a good few years now but it is something I always turn back to when I am wearing a plain summery dress or with jeans.
