I’ve never been a huge florals person, but this floral tee caught my eye a few weeks ago and it kind of appealed to me. Initially, I thought it was a little ‘old’ for me, which made me laugh when I thought about it. In my early twenties, I wouldn’t have given it a second glance, but now I thought perhaps I could carry it off.
Isn’t it funny, how certain styles look different to us at different stages in our lives? I bought it from C&A which in itself is known for its appeal to an older woman. But these days when I go shopping, I force myself to try on things that I wouldn’t ordinarily wear – that’s how I find little pieces that turn out to be real diamonds in the rough (like this floral tee for instance)
It reminded me of my late step-mother-in-law. I knew it would’ve appealed to her and that’s why I thought it might be a little ‘old’ for me. Silly, really, because it’s a gorgeous top. The colours are striking, and the print is divine. So why shouldn’t it be suitable for a woman of any age?
Anyway, I bought it (after putting it back on the rail a couple of times lol) and wore it with my skinny Salsa jeans to go out for a bite to eat with hubby. Being really daring (!), I figured my floral heels would be a fun addition. They’re a similar print which I thought might be a bit much, but because they’re ‘split up’ by my dark jeans, I actually think it really worked. I felt pretty good in this outfit and that’s what matters, right?
