Pardon me while I attempt to blend into the fussy surroundings. I last posted about my new found love of clashing floral prints which I'll be taking from Summer into Autumn and Winter. I'll also be taking a love of the opposing matching florals with me too. I love the pyjama feel of this silk floral print trouser suit. Most days I do feel that I look exactly like someone who just rolled out of bed. So this kind of aesthetic is right up my street. At least now I can feel like I've just rolled out of bed and managed to look vaguely elegant and put together at the same time.
I really enjoyed wearing these floral print trousers with the matching tee shirt over the summer. So much so that when I found the long sleeved, collared shirt in the summer sales, I bought it with the intent of extending the matching trouser suit theme into the cooler months. Again with some layers over for warmth, warm tights and boots, I think this outfit could see me nicely into the party season.
I say floral print but, as those who are familiar with the work of designer Hermoine de Paula will know, they aren't really flowers, but cleverly painted birds posing as flowers. The contrasting black collar, cuffs and yoke detail on the black back all work to keep the shirt quite smart despite its romantic and feminine print.
While I was fishing around the internet for a bit of information on the designer I was interested to see that she happens to be a pal of none other than Florence Welsh, and that Florence herself bought this very same outfit!
