florals, jeans and yellow


* shirt – vintage shop * cardie – charity shop * jeans – h&m * vintage bag – from a ‘fripe’ shop in paris * shoes – zara * sunnies – topshop *

This is for both Everybody, Everywear where the theme this month was florals, and the Paperdoll project, which is officially not til the day after tomorrow, but I decided to roll them into one. And post them a day early to fit my Monday – Wednesday – Friday posting schedule and not have two posts on consectutive days.

My Paperdoll partner was Kimberlee of I Have A Degree In This!. I picked the shirt as the item to build an outfit around and she put together quite a casual outfit – jeans, can you believe it! I absolutely love it though, and it suited me well, because I was doing some cycling on Saturday. Thanks Kimberlee!

If you follow me on twitter, you may have seen that I was agonising over whether to include the detail of the back pocket. I went ahead and did it thanks to the encouragement of a few lovely ladies. I hope noone is offended by the sight of my bum!

See here for more EBEW floral outfits, and visit Miss Vinyl Ahoy for a list of the Paperdoll Project pairs.

Also just wanted to say thank you to everyone that commented on last week’s post on editorial style outfit pics. I’m glad I’m not annoying you and as you can see, I’ve decided to stick with this approach!

    I think this is a first – have we seen you in a floral print before Franca?? You look GORGEOUS! I love floral and I adore yellow and I weep over vintage tooled bag so this entire outfit sings to me. Lovely!

    GREAT outfit (and my reminder to get crackin' on my EBEW post!) I love your detail shot! Great detail great bum!

  • poet 9 May 2011, 8:56 am

    Awesome back pockets, and altogether a great outfit! It looks "different" (in an entirely non-judgmental way) from your usual outfits, I think it's because of the jeans?

  • oranges_and_apples 9 May 2011, 9:36 am

    True, I don't have much floral stuff! I don't have much patterned stuff full
    stop, actually. And thanks!

  • oranges_and_apples 9 May 2011, 9:37 am

    Hehe, thank you! I don't mind my bum at all despite its size but the other
    photo of the pocket looked quite a bit more 'lad's mag' than this!

  • oranges_and_apples 9 May 2011, 9:38 am

    Yeah, jeans, and even the fact that it's trousers! Almost all my outfit pics
    are skirt or dress based. Though I do wear trousers lots, I just don't
    photograph them!

    Love the jeans on you! They look great! And thanks for the back pocket picture, right decision as it shows off a brilliant feature of the jeans and looks amazing to boot!

  • Sally McGraw 9 May 2011, 1:23 pm

    Franca, YAY! You look marvelous in this ensemble. The yellow cardi lends a lot of punch to the dark blouse, and I adore that bag.

  • Kimberlee VDW 9 May 2011, 2:06 pm

    YEY! So glad it worked out πŸ™‚

  • WendyBrandes 9 May 2011, 2:43 pm

    Yay for yellow! I'm obsessed with it lately. And those shades are soooo cute.

  • SACRAMENTO 9 May 2011, 4:26 pm

    You are adorable, My dear Franca.
    The good weather suits you soooo well.

  • Fashionpearlsofwisdom 9 May 2011, 6:26 pm

    The detail on those sunglasses is gorgeous!!

  • dianalynnsmiles 10 May 2011, 12:01 am

    I love that yellow cardigan!

  • Linda 10 May 2011, 1:37 am

    Woah. Two for one, and a day early?! Impressive. Also impressive? The sass and style you are pulling off in these pictures!

  • Fashionforgiants 10 May 2011, 4:49 am

    I'm sooooo glad you showed the detail on your pocket because it's absolutely fabulous. This whole outfit is a knockout though – you somehow look amazing in neon yellow.

  • oranges_and_apples 10 May 2011, 7:54 am

    I was hoping you didn't mind posting early! it just seemed silly to hold on
    to the post when it was all ready to go, and I like to have a day in between
    posts. And thank you!

  • Sophie - Country Girl 10 May 2011, 11:18 am

    lovely floral top! I adore your bag too and those crazy sunnies!

  • chantele cross-jones 10 May 2011, 12:06 pm

    Pretty pretty! Love the sunnies!

    You look like a model from a 1972 ad here– love in particular the sunnies with the floral shirt.

  • Citizen Rosebud 10 May 2011, 2:44 pm

    I'm back this time because I'm visiting the participants at EBEW. I love the citrus yellow on you- and florals become you, sweet Franca!

    This looks fantastic! I love the jean pocket detail.

  • Charlotte 10 May 2011, 11:59 pm

    The pattern in that shirt is so gorgeous! And it was genius to wear it with the bright yellow jacket!

  • BetweenLaundryDays 11 May 2011, 1:58 am

    You look impossibly cool in that first picture. I love the outfit!

  • Ceri 11 May 2011, 6:13 am

    The yellow and floral print works so well together. I love seeing all the outfit details definitely something I need to try and include more of in my own posts.

  • MrsBossa 11 May 2011, 8:41 pm

    What's your ass doing on here?! Bit FHM, isn't it? πŸ˜‰

    Popping over from Kimberlee…love the idea of Paper Doll Project and I really dig how you styled her and how she styled you. And it sounds like neither of you would've done the same thing with the same pieces…fantastic!

  • Tracey 12 May 2011, 4:06 am

    A lovely outfit … I think the bright yellow and the tan accessories really bring the whole outfit beautifully together.

  • Roisin 12 May 2011, 5:12 pm

    Sorry about the lateness of this comment but you look fabulous, especially in that first photo – you look like Isabella Rossellini in it!

  • Emma at Daily Clothes Fix 10 October 2011, 7:26 am

    I love the pop of yellow here and the casual vibe of your outfit.
