garden variety.



F21 silk bomber jacket | (c/o) Romwe lace blouse w/ metal tipped collar | Zara floral printed trousers | Asos pyramid metal tip clutch | Zara suede d'orsay heels

Since I was young, I have loved surveying the wondrous outdoors. I have wistfully thought on occasion that when I grew old and retired, I would maintain a little garden and just bask in the sunshine. To my dismay, I would not be a caretaker for a botanical gem the size of the infamous Secret Garden, as my green thumb is not really that green. After several attempts to plant various flora and fauna, the only plant I can attribute to my gardening success is a tomato vine. So to compensate for my lack of gardening skills, the arrival of floral print could not have been more timely. Despite my affinity for simplicity, these floral printed trousers captivated me like any blooming congregation would. And a little gold accent here and there helps quench my thirst for the glimmering rays of spring sunshine to come.

Love your floral pants, Jamie. They look fabulous on you. I've picked up a couple pair of floral printed pants as well, but I'm still trying to figure out what to pair them with. I've also entertaining the idea of making me a pair of floral printed jean pants.

Here's to fabulous week!
