Happy May Day!

In the depth of all the bank holidays we have had this last month, it could be easy to forget about May Day - but that does not mean it has gone anywhere. I officially wish all you bloggers a happy May Day - and happy it should be, as most of you will have the day off work!

The short holiday originates from pre christian times, apparently with the festival of Flora, the Roman goddess of flowers - sounds lovely doesn't it! So in true May Day style I have decided to post a little outfit suggestion for you all to lounge in whilst enjoying your day off.

Now most of you will recognize the picture above from fashion magazines, as it is one spread from the advertising campaign for D&G Summer 2011. I thought this would be appropriate as May day - originating from its collaboration with the festival of Flora (connected to the Roman goddess of flowers) kind of just screamed out that I opt for the Floral trend. 

Florals are big this summer so I guarantee that if you pop on even the simplest floral dress today, you will be the envy of all your friends! 

I suggest this ASOS Cape back floral dress for only £45. It can be worn with sandals for day time wear, or be dressed up with some nude heels and a patent handbag for a night out!

The gorgeous pattern is very flattering and sends off summer vibes in every direction. 

These pleats on the neck line add some depth and detail to the simple cut piece. Great for some 'effortless' looking style to add to your wardrobe!

What more is there to say? Make this the buy of your day, and enjoy the compliments that come rolling in your way this May Day. Enjoy...
