A Flowery Affair

Hello, again, fashionable friends!

Let’s get back into the blogging grind with some flowery fun…

Flowers have been on trend since, well, the first woman came into existence. Can’t you just imagine Eve with a garland of daises atop her perfectly placed tresses? Even now Princess Kate Middleton gracefully exits¬†the hospital adorned in spring-inspired florals.

Although the floral trend is time tested and celebrity approved, there are some rules to donning herbaceous threads.

Rule #1 – Don’t overdo it.

Remember the pregnant Kim Kardashian and her rose garden disaster? Although I love the shape of the dress, she looks like a floating head in a sea of poorly placed rosettes. Instead, let’s look for something with a flattering shape and appropriately placed blooms (i.e. Eva Mendes).

Rule #2 – Florals aren’t just for the fancy.

Florals can be a great go-to for a feminine take on running errands. Sarah Jessica Parker, Eva Mendes, Reese Witherspoon, and Jessica Alba use flowery frocks all the time to update an otherwise basic look. Here are a few fun examples:

Rule #3 – Keep the floral pasties UNDER a fabulous top.

Fab & Frugal Deal of the Day

Good morning, fashionable friends!

Today’s Fab & Frugal Deal of the Day features an adorable Tinley Road dress with a wildly feminine print and touches of sheer paneling to add a hint of sexy detail. I love this dress that could transition seamlessly between a day at the office and a night out with friends. Pair this cute number with some flats and a top knot and you’ve got yourself a comfy day out on the town. The possibilities are endless and the price is just right. At $54.99, this piece is a steal.¬†

Happy shopping!
