I’m sure there’s an unspoken rule in fashion where one must not wear Laura Ashley with any form of denim! Well, I committed that fashion crime! I thought I’d go for a Made-In-Chelsea-Millie-Macintosh style with a floppy hat and a cream blazer, but I was stuck on what bottoms to wear. I can’t remember why I bought this blazer, I might have taken style inspiration from Wimbledon whilst I was watching it on TV! It isn’t something that I wear a lot, in fact, this is the second time I’ve taken it out of my wardrobe! In my mind, cream blazers can look either mumsy or remind me of WAGs. Not a bad thing, I’m just neither a mum or a WAG! (Wah! Where am I going wrong in life?)
To be honest, the real reason (probably) as to why I’ve not worn the blazer is because I’m rubbish at wearing whites and neutrals. These days, I tend to do things on-the-go (don’t waste any time! Go go GO!!!) and that makes me careless. I spill things all the time and have often ruined white tops and dresses. At the very least, a coffee stain will end up in the middle of the garment and I won’t even have realised until it has stubbornly embedded itself into the fabri. I may need to start wearing a bib, or learn how to get rid of stains without further ruining clothes!
So, I ended wearing a very short pair of Topshop shorts with some triangular rose gold studs on them. I do love them, it’s a bit of a cheat in to making my legs looks longer. But, I almost feel bad for teaming a gorgeous, demure Laura Ashley shirt
with a pair of studded denim shorts. I do like the 70s vibe of this outfit. A 70’s vibe, that is, with a modern twist. Maybe next time, I’ll go all out with this and I’ll swap the shorts for a pair of flared trousers!
What would you wear with Laura Ashley? And any style suggestions on other ways to wear this cream blazer?
