The Tiny Heart: Hint of Floral

4.25.2012

Hint of Floral





Tee-F21 (very similar F21 option), Skirt-F21 (HERE and it's $6!), Necklace-Seek First, Sandals-Target (cute option)

Today I'm linking up with Marionberry Style for her trend of the month challenge: florals! I figured I'd do something a little more subtle this time since I'm already worn a bunch of bright floral print tops and skirts. Obviously I'm a huge fan of floral prints, but you can embrace this trend too without wearing it head to toe.

I have to give a shout out to Audrey from Putting Me Together since I won this beautiful flower necklace in her giveaway. I wore it to work and I received so many compliments (some of my co-workers were in awe that it was a necklace!). Thanks girl! 

Florals: do you wear it in small doses or head to toe?

  1. I'm definitely a small dose floral kind of gal, and I'm loving this necklace! Loving it even more because it was a prize :)

  7. Sharon, I love how you paired 2 different type of stripes and succeeded. And the pink floral necklace looks great.

  8. I can't believe that's a shirt and a skirt. I thought it was a dress! It looks fantastic! I'll either do a small dose or an all over covering of floral depending on my mood. Haha.

    1. Thanks Katie! Don't be scared of pattern mixing...the easiest way to do it is use 2 patterns in the same color scheme. I promise you'll love it!

  15. Cute dress and the necklace is lovely! I have seen some like that online and I'm considering getting myself one!

    I don't know that I go head to toe floral, but I like a floral skirt or a floral shirt sometimes. I like the subtle floral in this look of yours with the necklace though!
