Fall Florals

Sunday, October 28, 2012

I realized I have developed an attraction to floral prints in the last couple of years. To be honest, this epiphany surprised me a lot. I mean, I was the little girl who refused to wear a dress up until my 13th birthday, and after that it was still pretty rare. So, the fact that I have purchased over 11 different floral garments, the most girly print ever, is kinda odd. On the other hand, I usually don't question my fashion intuition, I just go with it...

Floral prints are usually reserved for spring and summer, but this season, we've seen the birth of "fall florals." As far as I can tell all a fall floral is, is a darker color palette. Most of the fall floral prints I have seen are black, white, gray or deep earth tones. I wasn't sure I was going to partake in this trend, but when I found this vintage blouse at the thrift store, I figured I'd give it a go. I decided to pair this blouse with my awesome new peplum skirt. I am obsessed with peplums and I have a feeling you'll be seeing a lot of this skirt in the near future!
