{Floral PowerPlay} Tailored Trousers

posted by on 2013.06.11, under Outfit Of The Day



Found this beautiful floral suit at Satine Boutique the other day, and knew I had to have it! I generally stick to high waisted pants when wearing crop tops to only show  a minimal amount of skin, but today I felt brave! Granted that I wore an oversized white blazer the whole day, but of course took it off for these photos!


As much as I love my flirty & feminine dresses, lately i’ve been channeling a sleeker & more sophisticated look (maybe it’s the change in hair color???). I’ve been on a whim to find as many unique trousers as I can (think fun prints & bold colors). I particularly love wearing trousers because 1. they are extremely comfortable (loose on the hips + breathable material) and 2. there’s nothing more polished & professional than a pair of tailored trousers. They make a powerful statement in the most subdue way, and i’m absolutely obsessed with trousers that have a unique print  like THESE.

Ah, your body is just perfect for this look, as I said in facebook too. Usually I’m annoyed by all floral prints, but this is actually looking good. Probably cos it’s not too filled with too symmetrical flowers.

Great job!
