|Burberry Floral Shirt|
Thrifted Polo Ralph Lauren Knit Cardigan
Sperry Top-Sider Boat Shoes
Now I'm not quite sure why this little line has struck a chord with me, but after acquiring a large collection of floral shirts during the summer break, I can't help but feel like she was talking directly to me. Am I being unoriginal wearing floral? Should I opt for plaid instead? Or maybe I should just go for the understated basics. Curse you Miranda Priestly for making me second guess my outfits! Luckily here in the southern hemisphere, we have now moved into Autumn and her words no longer echo in my head. (OK, I lied, the voices will never go away but now I feel less guilty about wearing floral patterns)
So when my friend suggested to go out for dinner during another day of torrential rain, I thought I'd be ironically original and wear my floral shirt in such gloomy weather. This particular shirt I chose has come under some harsh criticism, people tend to really dislike the pocket and comment on how it reminds them of pyjamas. Many friends have even suggested that I should unpick the seams and remove it all together! Only one person I've discussed this with actually likes the pocket and how it matches the detailing around the inside of the collar. So should I? Please voice your opinions and let me know what you think of the said pocket.
