A daisy print against a black backdrop: all the fun with none of the twee.
This print makes me want to sing:
Daisy Daisy give me your answer true……..
please please please define for me “twee!” (love the blouse tho!)
Just to be sure, I googled it and it officially means something that is overly sweet or sentimental or pretty.
But I would have said it is something that looks childish, which for me means, f.e., any time a grown woman wears a bow, anywhere on her person, except to tie sneakers or in rare situations, a scarf. Still, it’s a case by case basis I think. And it’s not like I’d actually say anything to the person.
Some people find an overtly pretty floral print to be automatically twee. I think I am becoming part of the anti-anti-twee backlash though. What is wrong with a pretty color? For me, any floral with a black background screams either the 80s or the 90s, I’m not sure which. Like a flower can’t just be a flower, we have to pretend we are really so edgy that we don’t really mean it. Though, this one is still quite nice and peppy.
Having said all that though … I don’t often actually wear anything even twee-adjacent. So I am a big liar.
Love this print.
If it’s floral for me it’s got to be Liberty print. Excuse this, but “Give me Liberty Print or give me death!” (Patrick Henry just rolled over in his grave.)
