I'm not a plant person, like at all. I hate all forms of gardening and the only type of greenery I've ever successful kept alive are cacti, and I even managed to kill one of them. But I'd like to be a plant person. I keep Pinning loads of beautiful interiors that are filled with flowers and house plants. This desire has now started seeping into my wardrobe and this outfit is a very clear indication of that. When I saw the shirt on the Monki website I was smitten, and then I saw the print came in trousers too and they both went straight into my basket. I love that when worn together it gives a jumpsuit effect but I can also wear them separately. That's called versatility yo!

These fab Julia de Klerk earrings featured on my May Wishlist and I can assure you that they are even better in real life. The colours are gorgeous and I absolutely love the scale of them. Sometimes earrings can disappear behind my hair but not these bad boys. Plus they add even more floral goodness to this already floraltastic ensemble but in a slightly more abstract way. They make me think of tulips and, after my trip to the Tulip museum in Amsterdam, I'm a pretty big fan of these particular flowers. Her whole Sillhouette collection is made up of bold, statement pieces and I pretty much love them all but if you like your floral jewellery a little less abstract, may I suggest her Bloom, Botany and Flora collections, all of which feature gorgeous earrings, necklaces and pins.

There is so much acrylic jewellery out there and it can be hard to find pieces that stand out. As I mentioned in my Wishlist post, I think Julia's work does just that. The new direction she's taken with her jewellery is so polished and the mix of frosted acrylic and etched patterns adds depth and interested to the pieces. I certainly stop and stare every time her work pops up on my Instagram feed and isn't that what we all want when we wear cool jewellery?!

Are you a plant person? If so, please provide me with tips of how to keep them alive! In the meantime I'll just stick to wearing florals - it's probably best for everyone, especially the plants.


  1. This outfit is PEAK Helen and I LOVE IT.
