Floral jacket – ZARA, Shirt – Motel Rocks Wallflower shirt, Jeans – MiH Jeans, Shoes – Chloe Sevigny x Opening Ceremony, Bag – Cambridge Satchel Company via Mybag, Downvest – Uniqlo, Down jacket – UC of Benetton

I’ve just managed to extract myself from a corner where I’ve been ironing shirts for the past goodness-knows-how-long hours, the least I can say is that the sun was up when I started and now it’s fizzled away into matte charcoal – at least now with the low light the hubby won’t be able to spot the ‘SOS‘ I’ve written with blade-sharp creases under the arms until much later. My new mission is now to starve him so his shirts collection does not collectively equal a football stadium in fabric acre and we won’t have to spend our entire savings on electricity bills owed mostly to ironing. Yes, this has nothing to do with the outfit – I just had to ramble somewhere,  hopefully during his toilet break at work he will spot the SOS  while passing a mirror and in the same hour also read this post while sipping economist coffee. I love you! I promise!

  3. I am so reluctant when it comes to iron clothing, can’t quite recall when was the last time I did! (thank goodness for steamers, I guess?) And adore the floral motif in your look, you blossom perfectly in them. x

  7. Haha.. This is sooo sneaky. Ironing isn’t actually that bad, but shirts, oh this is a completely different matter.
    Love your outfit by the way, it’s so flowery, but not patchy or too garish at all… What kind of sorcery is this?! xx

  8. You make me want to try flares again! And I so can relate on ironing for your hubby, I do this also for my man. They’re lucky, aren’t they?

    Might I add I love your blog and have been following you for a long time.

  10. Oh, how I hate ironing! My husband & I have a rule: he irons his clothes, I iron mine… and since I don’t have any clothes that need ironing, it’s up to him to iron his shirts how he wants.

    Love the SOS in the creases, too… You must let us know what he says when he finds it ;)

  27. I avoid ironing wherever possible – means all my clothes are creased. But I never wear shirts anyway… and the creases fall out within the hour anyway ;)

  42. Perhaps he could look into taking his shirts to a laundry service? They’ll come back nicely pressed and the extra money spent would be worth your time [& utilities :-) ], I’m sure. I love the jacket! Has a slightly Japanese feel to it. Which inspires me to wear one of my floral Winter Kate silk jackets tomorrow. I’ve been down with the flu and a bit tired of all the black and grey…could use a bit of brightening up.

  45. Hehehe, I can’t describe my aversion to ironing… or vacuuming. But well, at least he’s neatly dressed… right? You can’t wear a shirt with creases..

    The the light is nice in these pictures. I really like the colour of the bag! The florals are nice too, and those flared jeans look really good on you.

  49. I think I’m extracted a lot of button down shirts from my wardrobe because I can’t stand the wrinkles yet, at the same time, I’m rather reluctant towards ironing– rather makes me miss the days when my mum ironed my school shirts for me. Love the combination of the floral jacket and red satchel. It certainly seems like you’ve been keeping stylishly warm! xx
