Ophelia Inspired Flower Crown - Part 2

Happy weekend everyone! I hope you're all well, and feeling ready for Christmas. This week was very hectic, and I'm so relieved to have gotten through it! I'm so excited about the Christmas break.

I've been wanting to share this set of pictures with you, which I took on a very misty day last Saturday. As you perhaps know from my last post, Ophelia Inspired Flower Crown - Part 1, I've been planning this post for a little while. When I woke up on this particular day to see a dense mist covering everything, I was keen to get outside with my camera and start taking pictures. It was an unusually heavy fog which lasted the entire day. The mist seemed to envelope everything and gave an air of mystery to my surroundings, making even a familiar place seem strange and unrecognisable.

For this outfit, I donned my black fit and flare coat with metallic clasps on the front, which you may remember from my Halloween post (The Witching Hour). I wore everyday clothes in darker tones underneath, so my flower crown would be the centre of attention. With the festive season upon us, I think this look is ideal for a cold evening when you have a function to attend, as the coat provides much-needed warmth, and the flower crown can easily be added to the look for a bohemian touch, without compromising on style or comfort. I added my vintage marcasite deer brooch to my lapel, for an elegant finishing touch.

What do you think of this look? Please leave a comment below and let me know!

Finally, I hope you all have a lovely Christmas break. Season's greetings!

Lots of love Saba xx

Ophelia Inspired Flower Crown - Part 1

I've always wanted to wear a flower crown like this, and when I recently found one with small pink roses and realistic-looking leaves in Claire's Accessories, I just had to have it. It definitely felt quite grand to wear. I love the way it can transform a look, and make even a simple outfit seem much more dramatic and regal. As an English Literature student, I studied Shakespeare's Hamlet and know the story inside out, and this type of flower garland always makes me think of Ophelia, as she's often depicted in paintings. Since I took pictures on two different days wearing the flower crown, I thought I'd share some of the detail shots here, but there are more images to come in part two of this post! So watch this space! 

In the meantime, I hope you like these pictures. How would you style a flower crown? Let me know in the comments below! 

Thank you for visiting and see you soon! 

Lots of love
