My grandma's favourite flowers were forget-me-nots, this always makes me smile because she actually developed Alzheimers as she got older, but her love for the flower has certainly rubbed off on him. There's something so delicate and simple about them, similar to my grandma really, and at this time of year it's lovely to see how these tiny little flowers can brighten up any green space.
When I spotted this dress over on the Great Plains website, I knew I had to have it, why? Because it's called the 'forget-me-not' dress, plus it's exactly the type of dress my Grandma would have loved me in, blue and floral was right up her street.
It's not my usual style, and I wasn't totally convinced when I first tried it on, but I popped it on for a family meal last week and actually I really love it on these photos. The colours and the print are beautiful and the structured shape, with the black belt make it really flattering. I'm still in two minds about the length, and I might even ask my mum to shorten it for me so I can wear it a bit more casually with flat shoes but I know this won't be the last time you'll be seeing it!
