FLARE REFLECTIONS



VINTAGE COAT (similar here) / ACNE JEANS / VINTAGE COAT / POLLINI BOOTS / DANIEL WELLINGTON WATCH

Why was it I gave up flares again? 
Oh I remember! They were constantly dragging along the ground, making best friends with puddles (cf. the photos above..) and if that wasn't enough, history has taught me, that they're not entirely safe. That's if you, like me, lack those extra 5 cm, to actually lift them off the ground because you, like me, are just a little bit too lazy to sow them up. I once tempted fate a bit too much by racing back from school against my older brother in my super duper awesome flower patched flares (I feel a DIY coming on!), and landed a crack in my front tooth. Just saying, don't just think flares are all peaceful and stuff just because they came from the 70s.

I know it might sound as if me and flares really just aren't a great match, but although it might not sound like it, this is my love declaration to flares. I'd like to think that we are still a good match despite disagreements, and that yes, we don't always get along, yes, we sometimes want to take each other to the ground - but no one ever said it was going to be easy! Vive the flares, for all their water gathering qualities and the fact that they make the 70s live on way past their bedtime.

HOPE YOU HAVE A GREAT START TO THE WEEK

  1. Oh, I remember also the disadvantes of flare jeans so well :) But flare which are too short are not cool ... Love your look with the flares and pictures turned out simply fantastic!

  2. hahaha you sound like me. I haven't actually worn flares but, if I did, I easily predict similar situations to you.
    On another note, blue really suits you :)

  6. I remember their soaking up abilities too - I don't think I've worn anything other than skinny jeans for about 10 years but I actually love the shape of flares and think they're a lot more flattering on most body shapes. Love these pictures!
