Day 2: Floral Me Pretty

Florals are always a spring theme, but I think this year, especially, there are some amazing floral designs out there that are both romantic and bold...all ripe for the plucking! I'll take you through some great choices for all occasions.

This is perfect inspiration for a floral-inspired post. Covered in petals from top to bottom, this gorgeous raspberry gown by Christian Siriano is a show-stopper!

This is sexy. I love bursting bright floral on black, and I love a short romper! This is especially fantastic because it has long preferred combo - short length, long sleeves. This is paired with 10 Crosby Derek Lam mules, but I think this would be even better with pumps or sandals. Another obsession, the skinny ankle-strap with one skinny-strap-over-the-toes sandals. Choose black or any color in this pattern, and I dare people to stop staring!

Not into showing off your legs just yet? No worries, Yumi Kim has provided an opposite alternative with a halter up top and pants on the bottom. Another great way to wear this fantastic floral romper.

I hear a string quartet playing, and it's a lovely tune! Oscar de la Renta floral dresses are always favorites. I love that this one is black and white and has pockets. You can finish this look with any color pointy-toe pump (including nude) or skinny ankle-strap with one-strap-over-the-toes sandal. Can't you just see the accessories switched out for red or yellow? Perfection!

The long sleeves on this beautiful blue dress with an even brighter blue and red floral pattern makes this dress perfect for early spring. It would be great to pull the red out of this pattern by finishing the look with a pointy-toe red pump and a pair of big red button earrings.

This is a very versatile floral black top to wear with anything and everything. Dress it up with a black pencil skirt or dress it down with boyfriend jeans and everything in between. Finish it off with a mixed metal arm party.

Alice + Olivia, you did it again! I love this gown. The pattern is so romantic, and the plunging neckline in front and back are beautifully complimented by the sweeping full skirt. Bravo! Only wear this if you want to get voted best dressed!

Next, there are two casual floral pieces from H&M to mix and match in your wardrobe. The first is a short kimono that would be great over a fitted black tank top and black leggings with a long simple necklace and wedge booties or sandals. Or over a loose-fitting short tee with rolled-up boyfriend jeans and sandals.


This beautifully draped floral blouse will go great with a skirt, jeans, pants or shorts.  It would be so much fun with a light pink full midi skirt and sandals. And don't forget your big sunglasses!

 What's in store for tomorrow? A hot-for-all-seasons fave: Black & White! Stay tuned...
