Flora



I've always wanted to try double floral but thought I would resemble a pot plant too much for general public wear. Coming back to Australia and enjoying the leftover warmth of Summer I discovered a new found love for these pieces I've had for a while but was too hesitant to clash together. A pop of lippy and clutch in the same shade, and somehow it works. I wore this Asos pencil skirt a few nights ago to a show at LMFF, but with a backless dress in the same shade of orange. It is always such a score when you buy something that is so affordable, versatile and modest enough to wear as day or nightwear, but still a bit of fun.
