It’s Chelsea Flower Show this week and since my gardening skills and knowledge are terrible at best, I thought I’d leave that side of things to the professionals and show you how to bring some pretty petals into your wardrobe instead. Your garden and vegetable patch are truly thanking me for this by the way.
Floral designs can seem rather old-fashioned and some may even find the prospect of wearing them daunting. Avoid these issues by wearing one flowery item at a time, keeping the rest of your outfit as block colours. Not only will you feel less vulnerable, but the look will stay fresh and youthful as opposed to something you might find at a jumble sale. And believe me, there is only 0.0002% of the population who can really do Jumble Vintage any justice. The rest of us look like our grandma, only worse.
Of course, if you are not fazed by bold patterns at all, you can throw subtlety out of the window and really brighten up the world with full throttle all over prints.
Here are a few of my favourites…
I can’t tell you how much I love this dress. I have a lot of weddings to attend this year and I know just what I’m going to be wearing. Dollydagger dress £145.00
These vintage inspired ankle boots by Irregular Choice are stunning. Match the purple in the ribbon to a silk blouse and black knee-length skirt for a sophisticated look or funk things up a bit with a long-sleeved mini-dress and opaque tights. Just make sure your outfit allows them the full attention they deserve. I can think of worse things to spend £80.00 on!
What can I say? There had to be something remotely related to gardening in the article somewhere and these Wellington Boots from Joules are the bees knees. At £36.95 they are practical, stylish, and affordable. Where them with whatever you so wish!
And finally, I love this Pink Gerbera Umbrella by Galleria. It’s £28.00 but with the predictably unpredictable British weather, you are sure to get every last penny’s worth of use from it.
That’s all for now folks.
