I know, I know…
I can’t help it! Once the weather starts to show even a slight hint of spring I’m all over floral anything like a rash. That’s not to say I don’t wear them during the rest of the year, because as I have to keep reminding myself, I don’t live by fashion rules (what fashion rules, am I right?!)
But if there’s anything that’ll get me out of my SAD funk (that’s Seasonal Affective Disorder) then it’s blossoms floating on the breeze, the sound of bees buzzing and a pair of floral embroidered jeans.
I saw these in Kmart and instantly fell in love. In fact I was torn between these jeans and an embroidered denim jacket but went for the jeans as I already own three denim jackets and thought it may be too much (what do you think?).
My sister commented that they reminded her of jeans she had as a kid in the 70s, but I was never so lucky! Alas all I had were some terrible interpretation of acid wash (not even the real deal AND if I remember correctly they were pin striped!). Yes, I love being a child of the 80s but even I can see that some of the shit we wore was just plain WRONG!
So as cliché as it may be I’m embracing my floral embroidered jeans with both hands! I’m hoping the little details inject some much needed colour into my winter blues.
