Memo 359: A Tale of Two Florals

It’s Storytime!

Ok, so let me tell you how this look came together. I was in the middle of my monthly closet purge when I stumbled up the Ups & Down Floral top in this look. After looking at it for a few seconds, I was pretty sure that it didn’t belong in my closet any longer. I mean I had never worn it and I forgot that I even owned it.

Something told me to just try it on. These days, if it fits, I must quit…trying to give it away! So, I tried it on and it was cute, right? So, now I’m looking through my other pieces for something to pair with it.

I just received the Jacquard Floral Suit from ASOS in the mail. Once I put that suit on, I couldn’t deny the chemistry between the florals. The small size of the florals and color of the suit played well with the larger darker floral pattern of the top. Small problem. The suit didn’t fit!

So, long story longer. I had to order the suit in a different size, return the suit that didn’t fit and save the once forgotten Ups & Downs floral shirt to see another day.

I mean the shirt should be really thankful. If it were not for that suit, who knows where it would have ended up!: a donation pile, one of my favorite consignment shops or on the backs of one of my friends. Clothes saving other clothes one day at a time!

Note: Size up when buying jacquard on ASOS.
