Fashion Friday: Flower Power

One trend for spring that I've overlooked until recently had been floral prints.  I'm a huge fan of florals in my home decor, but I can pretty much say that is something that is very much not represented in my closet.

One thing that I love about floral prints is that you can pair them up with so many items.  These prints usually have a lot of colors to work with, which allows you a lot of fun possibilities when it comes to pairing it with different items.  I think florals are also great for pattern mixing and can give you some fun options mixing it up in that way.

I've been eyeing this pink Aerie tee every time I've worked there in the past couple months.  It's a cute, casual tee, but I've seen several girls dress it up a bit more.

I bought this VS Pink tote (shhh...  don't tell the Aerie girls) before my road trip last month.  I loved the print and it's the perfect road trip tote / teacher bag / beach bag / gym bag / whatever bag.  It's very sunwashed and neon and I just stinkin' love it!

This J.Crew tee is simple and perfect for someone who isn't looking for a crazy pattern.  It would be cute with jeans and flats or dressed up with a skirt and cardigan.

I think accessories are one of the best ways to ease into a trend.  Floral scarves are a great way to embrace this trend without getting too crazy.  

I loved this Gap dress online and loved the pattern even more in person.  It wasn't a match made in heaven for me, though, but I still think it's super adorable!

The floral button down from Gap, though, was a winner.  I fell in love with the shirt-dress version, but alas it was HUGE on me.  Thankfully I found the shirt online!  It's out of my element, but I think that's why I'm so excited to have it.

J.Crew's collaboration with Liberty had a lot of (expensive) winners in that collection.  I have a Liberty tote from the Target collaboration a few years back (much more in my price range) and I always get compliments when I carry it.  If you're willing to pay the price, Liberty florals are to die for!

How stinkin' cute are these cosmetic bags from Forever 21?!?  I had to resist the urge to get them!  

Have you been loving floral prints this spring?  If so, how have you incorporated them into your wardrobe?

Happy Friday & have a GREAT weekend!
