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.

Crushing on crushed velvet

I’m loving all the crushed velvet that came in this season. It was everywhere! Even booties and purses were made with crushed velvet. How cute were those?

So, when I saw this cold shoulder crushed velvet top on clearance at Kohl’s, I just had to have it. Armed with a $5 off any purchase coupon and  30% off when you use your credit card, I went to make my purchase. It rang up at only $1.54. Score!

I also found a few things on the clearance racks at Marshall’s, but somehow they all ended up being more than the shirt. Odd when you can find stuff cheaper at a regular department store’s clearance racks than at a discount store’s clearance racks, but somehow, that’s how the cookie crumbled this time around.

I love good deals and I cannot lie.

 

Crushed velvet top, gray jacket, purple floral skirt, red booties, bow tie purse + cat ear sunglasses

 

Outfit recap:

Gray jacket, Goodwill, given to me by a friend. Tassel earrings, Cost Plus World Market, a Christmas gift, you can shop these here. Cat ear sunglasses, Marshall’s, a birthday gift. White choker necklace, old, worn at my sister’s wedding years ago. Crushed velvet top, Kohl’s clearance racks, Floral skirt, old, vintage Jay Jacobs. Betsey Johnson bow purse, here + fishnet tights, here, from Marshall’s clearance racks. Red suede booties, Sole Society, won in an influencer contest a few years ago. (Back before Pinterest tried to chase influencer’s off their website and then installed a new smart feed where now only a small percent of your followers actually see the stuff you post. I’d probably never be able to win anything the way Pinterest works now. Super frustrating! Down with the algorithms, I say!)
