Floral Print Dresses With Boots and Cream Chloe Paddington Bags

Two floral dress outfits for autumn with ankle boots and little cream Chloe Paddington bags. One outfit for daytime, the other for a rare date night evening out.

What I wore:

autumn leaves print dress, Chloe small Paddington in 2006 blanc | awayfromtheblue

Earrings: Piper glass beaded chandelier earring in cream and gold
DressJaase Celine autumn leaves mini dress
ShoesAtmos&Here tan Lola leather ankle boots
Bracelets: the usual plus silver vintage charm bracelet
BagChloe small Paddington in 2006 blanc

Why I wore it:

Given that this dress is called the autumn leaves print I figured I should give it a wear in autumn! With the ankle boots it was perfect for lunch with my family down the coast. I thought that the cream beaded statement earrings were a nice bit of matchy-matchy with the little Chloe Paddington bag too. The cream is a very different shade from the whites and peaches in the dress print, but I still really like this bag and dress together.

As we were just heading down the coast for lunch and I didn't need to carry much, this little bag was perfect.

Last worn: Jaase tiered dress, cream statement earrings, tan ankle boots, Chloe small Paddington bag.

Other ways to wearJaase tiered dress and leather jacket, tan ankle boots and midi dress, Chloe small Paddington bag and jeans.

Dress: Kmart long sleeve black tie neck dress in floral wisteria print
Belt: embossed tan leather belt from my Mum's wardrobe
ShoesAsos Cleo leather boots in tan
Bracelets: the usual
Bag: Chloe Paddington clutch in mastic

Why I wore it:

Date night outfit! I layered up with the tall leather boots and the leather jacket over this fun floral print dress. It is on its seventh wear, which is giving me great cost per wear as it was a $2 Kmart clearance find last year! I wanted to dress up a bit with a dress, but also wanted to be warm, so this was the perfect outfit.

We had a bit of an early date night for our wedding anniversary, enjoying dinner and a little stroll along the river (the leather jacket was definitely a good choice!) before enjoying a show at the Brisbane Comedy Festival. It was a lot of fun to go out kid free for a night. I dug out my old Chloe Paddington clutch bag - I wore this on my wedding day, and it has so much sentimental value, even if it's been a while since I last wore it.

It's definitely a date night only clutch - barely fits my phone, some cards and lipstick in it, as it's from pre-smart phone days, haha!

Last worn: spiral earrings, Jeanswest leather jacket, Kmart Wisteria print midi dress, belt, tall leather boots, Chloe Paddington clutch.

Other ways to wearleather jacket and jeans, Kmart Wisteria print midi dress and floral bag, belt and shorts, tall leather boots worn 30 ways, Chloe Paddington clutch and little red dress.

  1. Love the boots in both of these looks! That leather jacket looks is my fave. So chic and cool!

  2. Loving how the bag goes with the first look. And your clutch is super cute. I particularly enjoy your anniversary dress, so pretty

  3. I'm a big fan of dark floral dresses, so I couldn't possibly choose a favourite. But you're right, autumn leave prints should be worn in the appropriate season :-) I just bought an autumn leave patterned pair of wide leg trousers and I'm devastated I'll have to wait a couple of months to wear it :-) xxx

  4. Mica, you look so pretty in both of your outfits. I hope you enjoy the end of the week and weekend.

  5. Loving the last outfit. I haven't had a date night in a long time.

  6. Happy wedding anniversary, Mica:) And OMG! I can't believe you got that dress for $2!!!!! So jealous:) But both the dresses and of course the Paddington bag is such a classic:)

  7. I just love those leather ankle boots! The first look is just so fabulous. I love the date night outfit as well. It sounds like you had such a wonderful night. I hope the comedy show was a good one!
    the creation of beauty is art.

  8. Wow, I can remember this bag from years ago. Still an icon!
