Always floral in the Spring

mixing patterns with florals - brassyapple.com

What’s that line from The Devil Wears Prada movie….”Florals in the Spring…how ground breaking..” ha ha ha!!! I think it is something close to that. I am not looking to start any new trends or break any new ground. Florals in the Spring are ALWAYS popular ¬†– always. And sometimes they comes across as always dressy or just pastels, etc. BUT floral is coming out in bold colors and isn’t just for your Easter Dress!

I love having florals in my wardrobe for color and pattern. They are good any time of year and can be worth through several seasons. And I love versatility.

¬†Body con dresses are very popular for their comfort and ease factor. We love this floral one from Journey Five. We are all about dressing modestly and this dress is a great length! Not to short or to long. My daughter doesn’t like the mid range look on her. It’s also not to tight and the fabric is great! soft and “thick” enough you don’t need a slip under!

The versatility factor? excellent! We dressed it up with pink flats and an “Easter bonnet” but she dressed it down just fine with some black shoes and a chambray top! Perfect for anyday!

Traveling? The fabric holds well against wrinkles and is comfortable. Plus throw a fun sling bag (we love this fringe one!) one and you are set for sight seeing, the beach, the farmers market or where ever!

The other thing I love about florals are they are the easiest to mix patterns with!!! This mixed pattern top has already done the pattern mixing for me! Florals on top and thin stripes on the bottom.

Versatility factor? top notch!!! I am sharing 3 looks with skirts but this top is perfectly paired with jeans and shorts too!

When it comes to tops think about 3 things – wearing it down, tying it up and tucking it in. That right there can give you 3 different looks!

I took the pattern mixing 1 step further and adding in 1 more pattern! Because every girls wants a day every once in a while when she wants to feel and look like a rock star. Ok maybe I didn’t quite achieve that but I love a little edge!

Then we go from edge to super GIRLY!!! I love that too! Tulle is always a winner and still hot and trendy!!! Tuck the shirt in, twirl in that tulle skirt and put on those heels!!!

Fun ways to florals!!! Go snag some and try out some of these looks!
