Dorothy Perkins Multi Coloured Floral ‘Corinna’ Court Shoes

The shape of these shoes is one that strikes me as just a little bit old fashioned: that platform sole and large peep toe is just a little bit ‘2010’ for my current tastes, but I’m willing to overlook that for the sake for the floral print upper. Yes, I know florals in spring are a total cliche, and that you’re not supposed to mention them without quoting THAT line from The Devil Wears Prada, but let’s be honest: they’re popular because they look good – and who’s seriously going to claim they’re way too cool to wear them, just because they’re so ubiquitous?

I love pretty much everything about spring: it’s my favourite season by far, and I love to reflect that in my wardrobe, by going for lighter, brighter colours than I wear during the colder months of the year – and that includes as many floral print pieces as I can get my hands on! In fact, while I was looking at these shoes on the Dorothy Perkins website, I couldn’t help but notice the skirt the model was wearing with them:

This is absolutely gorgeous (Although, of course, I WOULD say that, wouldn’t I? I rarely meet a prom skirt I don’t like!), and although it wouldn’t normally occur to me to wear floral print shoes with a floral print skirt – that’s just a little too matchy-matchy, even for me! – I actually think it works surprisingly well, here, so it could be worth giving it a go, if you’ve secretly always wanted to wear head-to-toe florals. I think the skirt would make perfect wedding guest attire, maybe paired with some kind of lace top, and a cute cardi – oh, and not forgetting those pretty floral print shoes, obviously!
