Bold Blossoms at the Beach

If there's one trend that seems to never go away year in year out it is the floral prints. And this year it's even getting bolder and some with a little bit of sheer. When I got this black sheer long dress with bold blossoms from Nastydress late last year I was so ecstatic only that I couldn't wear it right then because it's freaking hot down under.

And now that we are entering the Autumn season I can take out those long dresses albeit in thin fabric. Even though the weather starts to cool down and has been raining every other day nothing was stopping us from going to the beach. Hey, we were only taking advantage of the remaining warm air and as long as our lips won't turn blue while swimming it is all good.

 And that's exactly what we did yesterday, my family had a picnic at one of Sydney's northern beaches. We planned it for summer but the heatwave weekends didn't give us a chance so it's been dragged and dragged. For my picnic story please come back and check it out on my next post. But for now, doesn't my floral wrap dress look cute in the beach setting?

We were hoping for a rain-free day and although the forecast said mostly cloudy it still eventually rained. Why nobody 'til now can predict the weather accurately? Everything went on a faster mode when we were taking pictures from wiping the camera lens to fixing my hair :). But it was so fun and the dress still delivered what it's supposed to do from protecting me from cold air to looking pretty nicely against the wind and rain.

  25. I think the black long dresses with bold blossoms will never become obsolete and never go out of fashion. They will be always considered stylish and chic.

  26. What a beautiful dress on you, Mercy! I love the red florals and black base, it creates such a romantic feel, making the beach scenery all the more perfect. I'm sorry your picnic didn't work out due to the weather, I know how frustrating that can be and I, too, wonder when will the meteorologists ever truly get it right, haha. That said, at least the sky gracing you looked gorgeous and made for beautiful photos! Thanks for sharing and I hope you're having a wonderful week so far!
