Lookspiration: The Bloomlet Diaries
When I was a kid, I swore garments with flower prints are banned in my closet. Flower prints remind me of knee-length skirts from the 60's and 70's along with bulging hairdo's. However, now that my fashion taste has been refined for the better, I want to make way for Mother Nature to infiltrate my cubbyhole and stock on florals in a variety of garments -- cropped tops, pencil skirts, mesh skirts, jackets and shorts.
I belong to the category of females who wouldn’t compromise comfort for style. I need to have those two in a garment before I can decide to buy it. Imagine the Eureka moment that I have while browsing items on Zalora Philippines. I instantly got hooked with the floral pieces from one particular brand, Ezra.
Pencil skirts are perfect for our company’s technical symposiums. The black skirt is fastly becoming a bore and I want to hype up my look. A textured, floral-printed jacket would complement the look.
Along with these pencil skirts are cropped tops of similar fabric and floral patterns. Yes, they are cute, but me knowing me, I’d rather wear those tops with light denim cropped shorty shorts. Perfect for a strolling session after surfing on Baler.
Ooh, and have you just seen that off-shoulder flare dress. I am absolutely in love with it! There are days when I don’t feel like wearing pants, particularly on my day offs. This dress would be like my holiday comfort dress. This and slipping into my doll shoes – simply darling.
I’m a fan of high-waist bottoms as they keep my tummy tuck in for me. In just a plain white tee and one of those high-waist floral shorts, I can be effortlessly chic. I dig for these instant fashion tweak up since I am busy with a lot of things – online job, day job, my MAs and household chores. Don’t have extra time for figuring out a modish outfit.
If I could add another floral item into my list, that would be a pair of floral boots just like what Aria of the Pretty Little Liars is donning on one of the episodes. And oh, did you notice that on this blog post, I have mentioned Aria and Ezra? If you are a PLL fan, you would know what I mean. If not, I’ll just leave you with the thought that flower power still rocks the runway – and the streets for non-models like me.
