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.

How to bring spring colors into your end of winter wardrobe

Spring is coming! It’s not here yet, but it’s on it’s way. We are occasionally getting nice spring like weather days around here and I am ready for it. But, how to incorporate that almost spring feel  and spring colors into your end of winter attire?

 

Spring style

 

Take those warmer weather days and just go for it!

 

Slate blue coat + rose gold accessories

 

Start bringing out your lighter jackets, short sleeve shirts, your shorter pants and wearing your shoes without socks.

 

Shades of blue

 

Lighten up the colors a bit. Add in your pastels.

 

White sweater, + jeans with pearls & a slate blue coat

 

Bring out your bright turquoise’s, pinks & yellows and mix and match with your winter wardrobe.

 

White fluffy sweater, blue coat, denim with pearls + rose gold accessories

 

Add a pop of color in an accessory like scarves, purses or shoes.

 

A perfect day for the park

 

Wear a coat in a lighter or brighter color.

 

Booty, booty!

 

It’s all in the details. Like these wonderful pastel pearls on these jeans.

 

Pearl details

 

Or rose gold sunglasses and simple pastel pink pearl earrings.

 

Pink pearl earrings, silver pearl bun band, rose gold sunglasses

 

And by all means, jump for joy because spring is coming!!! You know I am.

*Side story on this photo. I was told to try some jumping jacks, running and some lunges by my chiropractor. He seemed to think it might help loosen things up and get me past all the flare-ups of pain I’ve been having. (Like, how do you loosen up an area that has a cyst, right?)  So I decided to pull a jumping jack in the air. The pain did go up to a 4 and I got kind of stiff after that, but no major flare-ups of pain. The same with the running. Unfortunately, the lunges I tried a few weeks later totally did me in. So far, my pain triggers are going up and down hills, lunges, and arching my back way too much while doing the ‘superwoman’ exercise on my exercise ball, and standing too long without enough breaks for sitting. Any others have yet to be discovered…
