A Chain of Flowers

I took these pictures at the end of summer, to capture an outfit I was wearing a lot during this phase. I love the leopard print top, as it feels familiar and always comfortable. I wore dark jeans, and my New Look embroidered jacket with contrast sleeves in a silver tone. It was an unexpected decision to add the flower crown, as I thought the pink tones in the roses would coordinate nicely with the embroidery on the jacket, making the look a little more bohemian with a romantic feel. It was my first time wearing these accessories all together, and I was really happy with the end result. 

Looking at these pictures reminds me of that day, and also makes me think of one of my favourite (and in my view underrated) songs by The Cure, A Chain of Flowers. The lyrics and the atmospheric mood of the song seem perfectly suited to that day, especially since I was wearing a flower crown.

During the summer, I often felt as though things were at a standstill in my personal and work life. I couldn't see a way to move forward, and sometimes it seemed like my efforts were in vain. Then all of a sudden, things started to happen quickly and gain momentum. Since then, I've had a few positive developments in my personal and work life which came as a surprise, and for which I'm thankful. I hope to share these developments with you in proper detail soon.

In the meantime, I hope you love this look. Please let me know what you think in the comments below. I've also included a link to the song A Chain of Flowers, which I hope you'll listen to and adore as much as I do. 

Thanks for dropping by, and I hope to see you again very soon. Lots of love Saba xx

    1. Hi Mica! Thanks so much for your positive words! I appreciate that a lot, and I'm glad you like the flower crown as much as I do!

      Have a fabulous week. xx

  2. I love the bomber jacket! The floral and bird design is so pretty and I love the contrast of it paired with the leopard print, so perfect for fall! I'm so happy that things are starting to gain momentum for you and that you have some awesome things going on in your life, I know it's well deserved!

    1. Hi Jalisa! Thank you so much for your kind and positive words. It means so much to me. I'm so happy you like this look, and the leopard print paired with the embroidered bomber jacket. I hope you have a lovely week as well! xx

  3. Hi Saba! I'm trying again!

    I love the floral bomber jacket here, it goes perfectly with your flower crown which I think really suits you. I never get on well with crowns like that or head bands as they make my head look flat lol! Yours looks great though and complements it perfectly.

    I think I know what you're referring to in the text, and I'm so glad you're making positive steps! Autumn always brings some great changes with it and I'm excited to see what you style and say next!
