Flower Girl Dresses {Monsoon}


After taking a bit of a dip, having junior attendants is very much back in vogue right now (and it’s just as well, because everyone I know is pregnant right now. Seriously. TWELVE friends). I’ve been looking around at flower girl dresses recently, and I was struck by how gorgeous the ones at Monsoon are at the minute (they’re right on the cusp between a sale of their summer collection and the Christmas party one, so it’s a good time to shop). I feel like dresses for little girls should always be age appropriate, but there’s something completely adorable about a flower girl in a sort of mini version of the kind of dress that all of us adults would love to wear, isn’t there? I thought it would be fun to match ten of my favourite dresses from the Monsoon collection with some favourite inspiration boards from the archives. Aren’t they lovely? Oh, and I have it on good authority that Monsoon will be selling some feather angel/fairy wings soon too, which would be the cutest accessory for a little lady.
