wear it / florals

wear-it-florals

i’m trying to usher in spring any way that i can.  it started with flowers in my home, floral wallpaper wishes, seeds in ice cream cones, and now i’m on to the idea of flowers in my wardrobe.   have you noticed that floral prints and patterns are on trend?  at least they are in my world.

a few weeks back, i was 90’s dreaming and wished i was wearing a floral dress with birkenstocks.  i’m still waiting to wear some great floral dresses, but at the moment pants are a great alternative.   i’m loving the idea of floral pants (or leggings) until the air is warm enough to bare those legs.

i’m adoring the floral jeans pictures above.  i love how the black breaks up the floral print.  i find that the pattern is not too over powering, yet the look is still bold, in all of the right kind of ways.  i’m especially loving the jeans paired with a fun and carefree t-shirt (i’m always up for new york), a cotton candy colored leather backpack (perfect for new york, yes?!) and comfortable stylish shoes (hey these work great for new york too!).

lets face it, the days of florals only being appropriate for spring and summer seasons are long gone.  today, you can wear floral pants (or any floral prints) in a variety of seasons and in a vareity of ways.

how about wearing florals like this?

you can dress up pretty florals with colorful pumps (coral is so gorgeous) for a full on sweet spring look.  when wearing florals in the warmer weather, a flowy tank top or blouse completes the look.   think light and airy and, surely, you will be good to go!

on the contrary . . .

if the weather is still frosty and there is a chill in the air, then opt to layer shirts, chunky sweaters and even your favorite pair of boots for a cozier look.  this style is a great way to carry you over between the winter and spring seasons!  and, if you are thinking of layering with your florals, think about including a chambray shirts.   chambray shirts look simply divine paired with floral patterns (and are so comfy, to boot).

patterns can sometimes be a little frightening and/or overpowering.  if you fall into that way of thinking and find floral pants to be a little too much for your taste, have you considered floral accessories?  options range from handbags, scarves, jewelry and my favorite . . . floral shoes to pack a punch.

have you incorporated florals into your wardrobe?  i would love to hear how you have incoporated florals into your wardrobe or how you’d like to.
