Admittedly, I love florals, couldn't live without my lippy and have developed a potentially disordered obsession of painting my nails almost daily.
But, if I'm honest, 'girly' is never gonna happen in my world.
I tower over most of my female friends, am clumsy, flat-footed and....klompy.
I klomp. And guys, no matter how many frills and florals you chuck at me, you can be sure I'll just klomp my way rather ungracefully out of any suggestion of prettiness or femininity.
And so it's become second nature to me to always counteract any element of 'girlishness' in my outfit with suitably klompish things. Be it floral or flouncy, flowing or sheer, it's a given that I'll automatically pair it with an oversized grandad jumper or heavy, leather-clad worker boots.
Which is pretty much what I did today. This dress, though beautiful, is sheer, peach and floaty; a triad that, in my eyes, was a deafening beckon for a years-old greying denim shirt, should've-been-thrown-out-by-now tights and proudly scuffed up walking boots.
