Ditsy Florals, Socks and Flats






























A floral mash up once again :) The sheer ditsy flower top is from Zara, I found it on sale a few seasons ago and the Saloon Floral Shorts are TopShop, I was playing with different shoes, the socks with the Chloe chunky platforms are an obvious choice to go with but what really sparked my interest (experimenting wise) was playing with the idea of wearing socks with flats,

I just digged out these Marc Jacobs floral flats, I haven't wore them in ages, it kind of adds a nerdy/girly twist to it which I like and I'm so going to overkill this idea by finding these really "wrong" white ankle socks with a childlike ruffle to it, I think it will be fun with shorts and dresses... so knee high socks slouched down with chunky platforms and clogs and childlike ankle socks with flats and oxfords...

That is a really fun outfit. It is fun to peek inside your NEAT closet. Do your shoes all line up by themselves? I like the ankle socks idea. And they would look great with those ballerina flats from Net-a-Porter. What do you do to make yourself laugh when you take your pictures. It is really uplifting to see someone be happy, we need more of that!

I'm glad I'm not the only one on the hunt for some of those 'schoolgirl' ankle socks. They are far too adorable aren't they?

Oh + I adore how you display your clothing! All the tones look so pretty and I probably sound like a complete creep, but I dream of a wardrobe like this! <3

You know why I love your blog?
Because you are ALWAYS SMILING!!! :D :D :D
And it's GREAT!
You know in our world, and even more in the fashion world, the last trend (for the models, celebrities, fashion blog) is to seems angry or bored like "My life seems amazing to you? I'm beautiful? Yes but you know it's routine so I don't care anymore"!

You always seems Happy I like that!
