[dropcap]G[/dropcap]roundbreaking, am I right? Nah, probably not. Meryl would probably roll her lovely eyes at me for this but I don’t really care. I’m really into florals at the moment and she’ll just have to get over it. They add a splash of colour to our drab A/W wardrobes and make every season a happy season.
Florals brighten up any winter outfit, from full on floral to tiny details like phone cases or shoes. They break up the silhouette a little and draw the eye. Warehouse has some gorgeous floral dresses at the moment, and ASOS are always a go-to for all things pretty.
I never used to be a floral gal. In fact, Ollie was laughing at me the other day because I’m going through a bit of a girly-girl phase and the me that moved to Paris two years ago would be turning in her non-existent grave. Back then my go-to outfit was a pair of black jeans, a breton and a denim jacket. I then graduated into black turtleneck jumpers and super simple styles.
I’d be lying to say that I’ve moved on from that – there are currently four of the same bretons hanging in my wardrobe right now, as well as three black turtlenecks – but I’ve developed and added to my style and I’m really enjoying spicing things up a little bit.
So here we are, in the middle of October 2017, and I’m writing up a little floral wishlist/lookbook post covered in winter blooms. Who says winter is for dark tones anyway?
None of that halloween stuff for me, no sir!
There’s something so fun about standing out from the crowd. I’m going to be roaming the streets of Durham in head-to-toe florals before November has a chance to show its head. Think big floral coats, cosy scarves and gorgeous embroidered boots.
Who says student chic can’t be fun? x
