Flower show: White floral moto jacket, sheer black floral top, boyfriend jeans, and suede heels

There was another trip to the nursery on the agenda this afternoon, dear readers…so when my husband saw me slipping on my white floral moto jacket and this pair of suede heels, he gave me a quizzical look and asked “um, where’s your gumboots?!”

Since I don’t actually own a pair of rubber boots, his question was a moot point…but it did have me wondering whether I might be the only girl in the world who “dresses up” for venues more typically associated with gardening gloves and muddy coveralls!!

It was (once again!) gushing with rain today…but because we were choosing plants for our brand new balcony rail baskets from the safety of a sheltering greenhouse, I actually felt quite appropriate in my flowery, spring-inspired look.

Besides, I’m not much help when it comes to slinging 50-pound bags of soil into the trunk of our car…even in more “practical” footwear!!  ;D

    Monika you're a girl after my own heart with mixed florals – they look beauuuuuutiful on you, and I love them with the distressed denim! It's funny – I always dress up for the garden centre too, so you're not the only one who does that, hehe!!

    Have a wonderful Easter sweetie, much love to you

      You definitely deserve some kudos for this look, too, dearest Catherine…I know I wouldn't have dared to do this kind of pattern-on-pattern combination without your stylish influence!! πŸ˜€ And yay!! Glad to know that I'm not alone in my choice of outfits for garden centre excursions!! ;D

    This floral jacket style is refreshing with bright pops of floral against a black backdrop. It seems classic and trend savvy which can catch any one’s eye.
