Tulips are my favourite flower. Maybe because they’re the national flower of my grandparent’s home country, The Netherlands, or maybe because I use to love going to my old hometown of Canberra’s annual Floriade flower show? Where there’d always be thousands of tulips on display and to picnic near. Or… maybe it’s simply because I love their bold colours and shape? A shape… which is perfectly suited for pockets…
Tulip pockets! For this ‘pockets in dresses’ obsessed lady I don’t think there is anything more perfect! The dress is a 1960s ‘Swirl’ wrap and it’s safe to say I’m a little bit smitten with it. Ralphie is too because she thought I had something in my pocket for her!
Wearing this dress has seen me become a little bit obsessed with tulips and here a few more I’ve been loving lately too…
I’m pretty sure my vintage nightwear collection could do with the addition of this 1960s beauty. Not only do I love the tulip detail on the bodice but the silhouette print on the robe is gorgeous.
As for this matching 1970s shirt dress and cardigan combination… yes please!
And this picture… well I think it sums up perfectly how I feel about tulips.
How about you? Do you love tulips too?
