Spring Forward

The floral trend never fails to return during the springtime but I couldn’t resist. It’s an easy way to a colour and pattern to an outfit, which makes it seem more exciting with less effort. It’s almost a cheat, which is common with quite a few bright patterns. The fabric is chiffon which means it’s quite thin, but this shirt is also really easy to use as a base layer for this outfit. Chiffon is an extremely floaty fabric, often used for elegant dresses. I love that that shirt is actually longer at the back, meaning I can wear it with leggings without breaking my rule on leggings. The most important rule in my mine: leggings are not pants. They’re a thicker substitute to tights and nothing frustrates me more when really thin, almost transparent leggings are worn as casual trousers. Today I chose black shoes and leggings as I really wanted the pattern to stand out overall and all the focus to be on the pretty print.
