And it wants its floral jacket/pants/blouse/skirt/shoes/insert item back. Ya'll, I resisted this trend for as long as I could, but I can't hold out any longer. Yup, I STILL want these pants from H&M, which are sadly sold out in my store.
Anyone? Anyone? If you can find them in my size (6 or 8), I'd happily pay you the cost plus shipping. Lucky for me I came across this floral jacket at the Goodwill last week, and DOUBLE luck that it happened to be 50% off the day I was there, so it was a whopping $3.
This is officially my new favorite casual spring outfit. I was surprised how much I liked all the blues together, cuz it has never been my favorite color. Seriously, though, florals can veer SO quickly into Golden Girls territory. To me, it's all in the cut and styling. With floral pants, I couldn't do anything other that skinnies. The high-waisted or wide legged cut is just toooo Dorothy Zbornak for moi.
These I can get on board with.
Jackets are the same way. Because the jacket I found was a stiffer material, I wanted to pair it with a tank and distressed boyfriend jeans. I also think it'll look fab with dark blue or white skinnies and a grey slouchy tank or chambray shirt. Good Lord - floral jacket AND chambray shirt? Why don't I add some pleated khakis and penny loafers and call it a day?
See? Love the skinny cut of the jacket above from Free People. Which is apparently sold out. Sads.
