June, rose month. But that doesn’t mean we have to be all sweet or dress like a granny…even if you are one! My mission, how to wear rose print and not look like a granny. Actually, everyday my mission is to not look like a granny but today I have made it more difficult by wearing a rose print skirt.
The Look: You may remember this Asos skirt from Dark Romance. I loved it then for its dark and moody rose print and I still love for that same reason. It’s just not girlie or granny. Two g’s I’m happy not to be. So of course I had to continue mixing the feminine with the tough. A feminine pale blush pink peplum top and my well-loved black leather bikers jacket.
The Accessories: Continuing the theme into the accessories was pretty easy. I have a multi-strand necklace that is a mix of pearls and chains. Add in some pearl earrings with multiple colours, silver and black bracelets and black ankle boots with silver studs on the back for more edge. Finished off with my black quilted bag (because I am now less than three months away from replacing it with a Chanel!).
As you can see, the weather is pretty miserable just to add to the mood of the photos. A special thanks to Mother Nature for giving a little sun after the photo shoot.
I certainly think I managed to wear rose print and not look like a granny. What do you think? Granny or Glam?
