Birthday suit

“Clothes mean nothing until someone lives in them.” — Marc Jacobs

I have been MIA for some days but I celebrated my birthday last Friday and I had too many things to finish before celebrating getting older.

As I stated here, I am consciously trying to take risks. This ensemble is way beyond my comfort zone. I am a complete dress girl; dresses are my go-to garment for special occasions. However, this year I really wanted to wear something different for my big day. Keeping in mind, that I am almost always on my toes thanks to feisty eight month old, I opted for something a bit more practical yet with a dollop of fun.

Florals are one of the key trends for this season. From Carolina Herrera to Louis Vuitton it was clear that flower is really a power to be reckoned with. Big and beautiful or small and abstract, floral look this time comes with a dash of bold femininity.

To personalise this trend, I’ve gone for dark floral trousers with pretty pink flowers. A dark colour is a great way to try on floral trousers. I’ve paired it with a black blouse in chiffon. A soft fabric like chiffon lends any ensemble a gravitas; it is also great for curvy figures. Androgyny looks are having a moment these days and this is a great way for experimenting with androgynous look while keeping it feminine too. I have accessorised with pink statement earrings, sparkly bangles and a pink clutch (actually it is a satchel).

Trousers, top and earrings: Debenhams, Bag: leather satchel company, shoes: asos

If you have been wondering about floral trousers then I would say drop all your inhibitions and go get them as they are surprisingly versatile. For a casual look you can pair it with a tee. If you want something more edgy pair it leather tee. For a feminine look, pair with a white tunic. The options are limitless.

So don’t be afraid, go grab a pair and thank me later because this might just become your favourite look.

A word about photography: we were really hoping for getting this shoot done outside. But each time we stepped out, it would start raining. I had to keep postponing it until I finally decided to do it inside the building itself. Ha! Problems of a fashion blogger.

Hope you enjoyed this post. Have a great week ahead.  Do show me your love with your likes and comments and don’t forget to follow me.    🙂
