florals with attitude

February 22nd, 2013


I love the idea of “moody florals” as a trend — think those black, maroon and green floral dresses you’ve seen, but when I’m shopping, I still always gravitate towards the bold, bright shades.  It’s funny to think that only a few years ago, jeans were blue and maybe black, and nothing else.  It’s even crazier to think that a few years before that, jeans so unflattering that we now refer to them as “mom jeans,” which my mother wouldn’t touch with a ten foot pole.

But jeans have come a long way from humble origins, and this pair is my new favorite!  Bold splashes of color, a completely unique print, and flattering to boot?  Love.

You guys probably remember almost this same outfit, which I styled for the cold for NYFW here — but I wanted you to see how I’d wear it for Spring as well!  Replace the leather jacket with a tank, lose the hat, and strap on some platform sandals, and you’re totally prepared for those up-and-down spring temperatures.

7 For All Mankind jeans, Celine bag, By Boe necklaces (available here and here), Jimmy Choo Abel pumps.

    I’m obsessed with this outfit! And those necklaces are awesome layered. Absolutely beautiful.

    I’m not a fan of the jeans, but I love everything else, especially the top and the necklace. Great outfit!

    Oh my God, those heels and jeans :dies:

    I’d wear the whole outfit, except maybe have a high ponytail, chunky bangles instead of the necklace, no shades (to show off my fabulous eyes – lol), and switch the bag to a bright cerulean-deep blue ombre clutch.

    Love your whole style blog so far <3
