My florals, my way

There's a trend going about town at the moment and it's HUGE! I'm talking about florals. They're the type of florals that remind me of my parents' Moran coach growing up and of Laura Ashley bedspreads. I admire the trend on other people, but cannot seem to bring myself to wear it for myself.

Don't get me wrong, I love the look of florals. I'm a girly-girl after all and appreciate a bouquet every once in a while. However, I prefer my florals petite to suit my frame. 

I remember walking into Max & Co store at Chadstone Shopping Centre one day (for those of you who live overseas, this would equate to a massive Macy's). As I searched the racks for the piece that 'did it' for me, I finished up completely dry of any inspiration. Just as I was about to leave, I noticed the sweetest, prettiest, pink floral blouse,  hanging up behind the counter. 









Immediately I asked the sales assistant whether I could purchase it. I thought it may have been on hold for someone. I tried it on...and, well, I guess you'd say the rest is history!! So, there it hangs still,  delicately on my cream, satin hanger, after a few seasons wear already, and I can still rely on it, like a trusted old friend. 

There you have it, my florals, my way! 

Do you like the floral trend right now? How do you prefer to style your florals?

Yours in style,
