TRIPLE Florals: How Much Is Too Much?

Ummmmmm… the answer is THERE CAN NEVER BE TOO MUCH. There. Done. Post over.

LOL, just kidding folks. But seriously, as soon as I see anything with a floral print I add it to my basket, then end up with 10 items in my cart and have to whittle them down to my fave 1 or 2 to buy. Perhaps my life goal should be to be able to buy any item I put into my basket or add to my wishlist? A girl can dreeeeeam!

Anyway, I wore a floral top with a floral skirt last week and got bombarded with a bit of oh ma guuurd those two floral prints do not go and you can’t wear florals with florals – to which I obviously said yes you can. Who makes the rules? Me. (Not me as in, I make the rules… as in YOU make the rules of what YOU want to wear, mismatching florals ‘n’ all).

My double floral controversy made me somewhat determined to change peoples minds, but also it was generally just a good excuse to wear some of my new floral clothes together, and add a bag with a floral print on it too. TRIPLE FLORAL LOVE RIGHT HERE.

All three items in this look were bought in Oxford last weekend when I went on a shopping trip with my ma – I wrote all about it in this blog post with a haul, so you saw a sneak peak of them, but never did I think I was going to wear them together. I think the colours in the top go so well with the orange in the skirt and even though it’s a bit of ditsy-floral overload, it’s so fun to get a bit creative with your clothes and match things that you wouldn’t necessarily try before.

How many of you would buy this skirt and instantly match it with a plain black or white t-shirt? I’d definitely stick my hands up for this one, usually, but I’m really trying to pick out colours of my new clothes and match them to different items instead of just a simple t-shirt. To be fair it’s literally my favourite thing to do at the mo (it’s like artwork for me, I’m weird), even if people think your combinations are a bit odd. I spent so many years playing the ‘safe’ game with clothes, but I feel such a strange sensation of confidence when I put together an outfit that’s a little different, or that doesn’t have anything plain in it. Years ago if you’d have told me I would be wearing 3 items with floral prints together I would’ve HURLED, but now I’m enjoying fashion the way it should be enjoyed, which is in the eye of the person wearing it.

And does the pale pink bag go with the outfit? My mum will probably say no, but it’s embroidered, it’s floral and it’s really cute. And it didn’t cost all that much either. So why not? I get a bit bored of sticking to the rules here on POR so have some orange and yellow with a dash of pink.

Therefore, in the answer to my blog post question… No, there can never be too many florals. There can never be too many of anything.

Fashion is so subjective, and I think we’re too worried about people thinking that things don’t go. When someone says ‘those colours don’t go together’ – say ‘maybe not normally, but I LOVE IT’. They’ll soon think you’re the sassiest little muffin that ever walked the earth. Own your decisions and your outfits, even if it involves a choice of clashing prints…

What do we think? Can we have too many florals and patterns? Or should we just ignore the rules and wear what we want? In my opinion RULES SHMOOOOLES, hope you’re diggin’ the triple florals! Let me know your thoughts in the comments as always!

    I absolutely love this outfit! I love how you paired three floral prints. That skirt is adorable, I would love to get my hands on it. I definitely would have styled that skirt with a black or white tee! Such a refreshing outfit. xx Laura

      Thanks so much! It’s strange how so many of us would style it with something plain, but it’s so fun trying it with other floral items! Really glad you like it 🙂
