Friday Floral Fashion

What with all this sunshine and the promise of more of the same fabulous weather all weekend – Slane here I come! – I absolutely could not resist this blue and green abstract floral skirt in New Look today. (€30). I adore the tulip shape, the chunky zip, the gathered detailing down each side that disguises two side pockets, but most of all this abstract neon green and blue rose print.

The vivid colours of the the floral print reminds me of Vincent van Gogh’s Irises painting.

But how to wear it? I’m thinking a crisp white shirt with either a navy v-neck lightweight jumper or denim jacket over the top. Either will be perfect for heading in to the free Handel’s Messiah concert in Christchurch Cathedral this evening. Lord be praised!

    The patterns on the skirt so look alot like the flower paintings you have above, I think they look like blue roses.
