ttF Fashion Staples Series Outfit #17: May Florals

April showers bring May flowers. And considering florals are one of the biggest trends for spring, I just had to get in bloom with my fashion staples. While I’m all about mixing prints, wearing this many florals together is a big N-O. But it sure was fun to pile them on for a pic!

Here’s the breakdown of the 6 Fashion Staples I’ll be wearing at least 6 different times for the next 31 days:

1. Sheer Floral Button-Down (Equipment)
Every time I pass the D&G store on Robertson I can’t help but swoon over the floral window display. That’s why I was thrilled when I cam across this rose print blouse. It has same floaty garden feeling as Mario Testino’s spring ad campaign—just at a price that I can afford.

2. Floral Statement Necklace (Kate Spade)
I’m always encouraging women to invest in statement necklaces. They’re the easiest way to update your look. And this yellow piece couldn’t be any more cheerful! The enamel is casual enough to wear during the day but the Swarovski accents make it dressy for night as well.

3. Black Rose (Tasha)
Last year, I showed 6 ways to wear a floral brooch. But it was a little girlie for some people’s tastes. So this year I’m taking a more refined approach to the trend with a black rose pin.

4. Floral Scarf (Bindya New York)
There are so many scarves out right now I had trouble settling on just one. That is until I came across this yellow print. The color is seasonless so even though it was a little more expensive than some of the other options being able to wear it into fall makes it worth the splurge.

5. 90s Floral Dress (MINKPINK)
With the revival of the 90s in the fashion world, I was thrilled to find this little dress by Australian label MINKPINK. It goes from day to night and the full skirt is certainly twirl-worthy.

6. Floral Wedges (Steve Madden)
At 5’3 I always feel the need to wear heels. And I’ve had wonderful luck with Steve Madden’s platform when it comes to comfort. So with a 30% scratch & save coupon in my hand, seeing these printed beauties was a no brainer.
