Floral adieu to Spring

For years, stripes competed with checks in my wardrobe with plain t-shirts providing the backdrop. The odd floral dress or top, that I got as a gift, would be tucked away safely into a quiet corner of my wardrobe. Those pretty little things would be remembered on rare occassions when I would be scrounging around for a creative gift wrap!

That has been my relationship with floral prints, and, still is. They are pretty and feminine - just not for me. So, when floral prints became the hot Spring trend, I ignored it hoping it would pass soon. The trend lasted and I gave in - to these adorable floral shoes. If you are like me (or not) add this trend to your wardrobe (subtly) with accessories.

Shoes: Forever21 Pants: GAP Top: Forever New (similar) Flower: Street vendor in Mexico

The stores, of course, are stocked with floral pants and blouses, but, these are the shoes, scarves and bags that are worth a look.

These flower clips offer a fun and simple way of playing with this trend without making you dive right in.

Have fun with flowers until next time!
