I am secretly always feeling florals

I love the idea of them so much. The sheer femininity implied. But I find them incredibly hard to actually wear, whether it’s the dated cut of a piece or the color scheme. It just about never works. That doesn’t mean I’ve stopped trying (my eBay searches are relentless… I’ve lost hours of my life dedicated to these searches, it’s pitiful). 

Ok, so a dress is the most desirable: great on its own, under a blazer, under a sweater, with heels, with boots, with sneakers, with a turtleneck under… But I love the very 90s styling of the bustier with trousers too. I might just have matured enough to revisit my 90s self… What do you think?
