Workday / Weekend



If you are only going to buy one new piece for summer, make it a floral print blouse. No matter how you wear it, you're going to look ladylike and chic! On a cool day, a floral blouse can freshen the black tights you've been wearing all winter and spring. Once the sun is out, the same blouse dresses up your favorite pair of cut-offs. I like a blouse that's a little sheer, and the prettier and more colorful and delicate the print, the better!

Are you wearing floral prints this spring? What is your favorite way to style them?

    1. Lissy, I'd like to take some sort of style blogger cred for that, but it happened by accident. I had the skirt laying out for another outfit, and when I brought home the blouse, I tossed it down alongside the skirt. Then I noticed how good they looked together...voilĂ !

  6. I love pairing my louder floral prints with something nude or if it's a more subtle print, utilizing one of the accent colors that may be a bit bolder (like fuschia) for a major piece like a pencil skirt.

    I also have paired it with polka dots - I love the way you styled yours.
