Oh I’ve admired this trend from afar for at least a couple of years – an age in fashion terms! In fact it’s no longer a *trend* 🙂 But I never found a print in the colours and scale I like until I saw these by French Connection from this post.
I was very surprised since it’s French Connection where I hadn’t shopped for decades and that the print turned out to be an exotic, Oriental type often found on sarongs so it felt instantly familiar and right. I’m very careful with prints in general since the scale and colours most often don’t work for me. Casual version with flats and tee also below. I wore this outfit for drinks at a Belgian bar on the first evening of my holiday. I felt pretty drained however, with the aid of the Chanel cover up and powder, managed to fake being awake for another couple of hours. With a navy Theory silk shirt also here, Sam Edelman heels also here, Hermès black CDC, jade jewels and a vintage Hermès navy clutch. The vintage H clutch – where do I start – it’s navy and from 1979 – this is a wonderful year I believe for beautiful leather if my Kelly from the same year is anything to go by. However, the leather had been allowed to dry out badly and unevenly resulting in a lot of time conditioning it to prevent further deterioration. I feel it’s exactly the right size for me and couldn’t be happier!
