How to style spring florals differently

It’s that time of year again. The time where pastel florals are out in full swing everywhere. Some days you’re in the mood for them, others not so much. Don’t get me wrong. I have nothing against all the pretty floral prints out there right now. I do like floral prints. But I love going against the flow. Doing my own thing. This look is all about florals done a bit differently.

I decided to throw on my black and white floral skirt with a dusty lilac tee with an applique floral pattern on it. Casual yet cute. I found these cute laser wedge sandals at Ross and threw them on with this. Gotta love a good Ross deal! Only $16.99 for these wedge sandals. I find it hard to shop at regular retail stores unless I’m shopping their clearance racks. Ross, Marshall’s and TJ Maxx are my go-to places for new clothes for less.

This does not, by any means, mean that I am not going to throw on some pretty pastel florals at any point this spring. I love florals. I may even have to find some of those gigantic floral print dresses, reminiscent of the 90’s that are coming back in again. But sometimes, you’ve gotta switch things up a bit. You do you, boo.

As always, thank you for stopping by.

What to wear for a Mother’s Day brunch

Do you have a Mother’s Day brunch planned for you mother this year? Or a church brunch, family brunch, friends to get together with for a Mother’s Day tea or brunch? Here’s some ideas on what to wear for a Mother’s Day brunch!

~ Flowers are always in because Mother’s Day is in spring and mother’s love flowers. Or most do. So bring out your floral tops, skirts and dresses.

~ Pastels are still in, because, again, spring.

~ Casual but cute is always a good way to go because brunch is not as formal as a dinner. Why not wear those comfortable jeans with a nice blouse and nice shoes?

~ Cute accessories. Purses, earrings, necklaces, ect. I’m not really big into bracelets because they really bug me flopping around on my arm for some reason, yet I wear my watch every day even though I can now look at my phone for the time, and it doesn’t bug me at all. Huh. Not sure what’s up with that.

~ A maxi skirt or dress is another cute but stylish way to go.

~ Cold shoulder tops and ruffle or bell sleeves are pretty in right now. Just be careful not to get those big bell sleeves in your plate of food!

~ Capri’s and a cute tee are another fun way to go.

~ Throw on a lightweight cardigan or a cute jacket just in case it’s too cool wherever you’re having brunch and you’re good to go!

I’m looking at the skirt in the photos below thinking I would probably end up getting food all over it. Perhaps denim is a better way to go. They say jeans never get dirty, right?  (Unless they’re white or pale colored ones. Ha.)
