Khaki with Roses

I have recently rediscovered this top and have a whole new appreciation for it! I don't know if this happens to anyone else- but in the wardroom things get lost on the racks from time to time. I occasionally get a bit stuck in outfit circles- and forget to rummage through the rest of the options. I am glad I had one not too long ago as I rediscovered a few pieces to throw into the mix for the coming months. Between that and the weather showing the first signs of getting warmer- it is an exciting time for outfit picking!

(Upon re-reading that last sentence maybe I need to get out more....)

So back to my first rediscovery. This top has been kicking around for a few years now. Its no secret that I love any shade of green. It's also no secret that I have a thing for flowers. Especially roses. Oh look. This top has both. Tick and tick.

I love that the roses have a vintage quality to them. They are such a vibrant red- and this really stands out on the khaki. I like that they aren't a "flat" colour too. They have a depth achieved with the shading on the applique. (flowers and leaves I may add...)

In this top's recent reincarnation I have teamed it with a red scarf around my neck, staple black pencil skirt and finished it off with red peep toes. When I wore this to work a week or so ago I also worked in a red handbag.
