in brown. During the last of the winter months we can still get away with enjoying some of the more earthy and rich colours nature has to offer. Don't be afraid to combine with other soft shades of pinks and soft metallics with an injection of zingy green in the flowers. I've also brought floral touches into the outfit with a vibrant green cymbidium orchid corsage. The dress I've chosen is actually intended for a much younger little girl, but this style of dress (in a larger size) looks demure on a woman, particularly for a more traditional affair, and the velvet adds a little extra luxury to the ensemble.
