ROSES ARE RED, VIOLETS ARE BLUE, I'VE STYLED UP A GANT FLORAL SHIRT FOR YOU

I never imagined for a second my latest floral acquisition would come from GANT. I have always associated GANT with the place office girls buy their office shirts from and office men buy their chinos. Hardly my kinda shop. So when I was asked to style up a GANT shirt and I said "No thanks. I like my shirts with bold prints. I don't do white shirts unless they have massive sleeves". No sooner had I clicked send when I was sent back a link showing me rather a lot of fabulous printed and floral shirts. Well colour me shocked - they do a fabulous line in beautifully made printed shirts. I settled on this gorgeous voile shirt in red, white and blue flowers.
Between Trump and Brexit, red, white and blue isn't exactly associated with anything positive for me at the moment, but I'm hoping these cheery florals change that.

My wee outfit certainly garnered a few quizzical looks when Prince B and I took a wander to the Botanic Gardens last week to admire the plants. I guess the tourists just weren't ready to see a Scot in something that isn't a Rab C. Nesbitt string vest!
