I am not a huge fan of the floral pattern, well at least not those with big floral prints with at least 3-4 colours. But this floral shorts is something else! The small repeating blue floral patterns make it a pretty wearable piece, and not too difficult to pair too. I think one of the downsides of wearing floral pieces is that they are such statement and memorable pieces that people would start wondering if you have any other clothes when you wear it one too many times. That's definitely one of the reasons why I have less loud prints in my wardrobe, because they are less 'recyclable' than the basics. But of course having some prints can add a little variety to your collection of outfits. In my opinion, the trick is to find small and subdued repeating prints, and pairing them with basics!
For this week's outfit, I paired the cute floral shorts with a black button down top that I got from the thrift shop for RM 5! What a bargain. It reminded me of those 90s fashion style my mother used to wear, like tops with big, long collar and shoulder pads. This top gives off an almost formal but still casual look to the whole outfit. The shorts lean on the casual side while the pointed flats adds on to the formal side. For accessories, I added this gold chained necklace to go with the gold details on the flats.
