Anyway, carrying on with the floral theme from the last post, here is another flowered acquisition of mine! I found these floral shorts in.. let's guess, hmmm...Could it be? A charity shop!
I love the fact that they look like they could have easily been made from my Grandma's curtain material! (More on recycling of curtain material in a later post).
I added a charity shopped soft teal (or is it pale blue?) Warehouse blouse- as the colour matched the rose leaves on the shorts perfectly.
The belt is one my mum bought at a jumble sale when she was a teenager, and one of the first items of hers I ever appropriated. I mislaid it for a while, but lo-and-behold, here it is.. Back from (under) the bed - ready for waist cinching duties!
The necklace is another piece of costume jewellery from the shoe box of treasures that came from one of my great-grandma's.
Yes, I am wearing the white brogues... again. AGAIN! (Sorry.)
"Judge, I plea not guilty of repeat offending by wearing these shoes in practically every other post - they just happen to be very versatile."
Talking of brogues, I visited Topshop yesterday and salivated over almost every shoe there, especially a brown brogue/ loafer hybrid. That slightly strange, fringed shoe needs to be mine so I can pair it with floral Jaeger skirts and dusky pink thirties camisoles.
I was thinking about how I always wear brogues and loafers, and this footwear kind of stands out where I live - rurally. However, when I visited London last weekend loads of people were wearing them, so my feet just blended in!
So here's the question- Do 'trends' filter down to different geographical areas of a country at different times? Do you think we are often influenced by the environment around us when we dress? I'd like to hear some opinions.
