falling for florals

{flower arrangement by FlowerGirl NYC}




It all started when I saw this gorgeous series of photos ... talented florists had transformed dresses from the fall collections into luxurious floral arrangements.  Lovely!  I really enjoy doing the 'wear that room' feature (where I transform a room into an outfit) so naturally I was loving dresses turned into flowers!  That got me thinking about wearing floral prints in the Fall.  Who says it's just for summertime?  As the looks below show, the key is to stick with darker, muted colors and pair the florals with chunky knits and booties.  


Are you wearing floral prints this season?

see ya Monday for some more Thanksgiving fun!

hope you have a lovely weekend,
xx

I love florals in the winter. I love mixing up winter/spring/summer/fall: it's like, in the summer, bare tan legs, sort shorts, sandals in a bright colour, bright nail varnish, but a big soft grey jumper. Just like I like to have a balance of bling and scruffy, I like wearing something pastel or frilly or summery in winter, along with all the heavy stuff.

Thank you for your comment, Mae: I do feel we can find inspiration everywhere. And I love your blog - I've just added it to my roll (I'm trying to keep my blog roll short, I had so many I had to take them down - so now I just kind of add people and delete others - it's not personal).

Okay better run but I don't always reply to each comment, and it's rude not to - now you can see why! I can't just write a quick little comment. Love the pale clue colours from the Rodarte, btw. Where did they do these spreads? I guess I'll click 'here' to find out, huh.

I usually do not like floral patterns, but I like where this 'new wave' of florals is going!
