…Groundbreaking. Yes Miranda, I know. But these big blowsy blooms are so happy-making for gruelling January aren’t they?
These are from the new Topshop campaign and typically, I can’t see them on the site yet* (UPDATE! See below for delivery dates]. So I’ve improvised with some other picks. I’m not the girliest girl, so the only way I can fathom these unapologetic florals is styled how they are above with ultra dark high waist jeansand a classic Superga-style sneaker or western boot.
