3 Simple Ways to Wear Florals for Spring

Springtime screams for floral patterns and, after months of heavy layers and dark colors, there’s no better print to freshen up your look. Whether you’re one to sport them in bold patterns from head-to-toe, or someone who prefers a more modest pop of color, it’s incredibly simply to incorporate these pretty florals into your look.

Highlight Your Favorite Assets

Whether you favor your strong arms, or love to elongate a shorter leg, you can highlight your assets in an eye-catching floral fabric. This blue-and-white blouse has become one of my absolute favorites this season (pairs perfectly with black for work, and jeans for weekend), and there’s nothing like a pair of floral shorts for all-season-long spring and summer wear.

Go All Out in a Pretty Dress

Dresses are always a go-to of mine because they are one-and-done options (and frankly, I love an outfit that I don’t have to think much about). I’m a bit of a minimalist when it comes to fashion but, while I tend to prefer daintier florals, I’ll give a bigger, bolder version a go every now and then, too!

Tie on a scarf

Scarves are perfect for adding pops of color without overwhelming your look. If wearing a bold color or print sounds too scary, try tying a scarf onto your handbag, around your neck, or in your hair for a smaller dose of spring.

  • Exactly one week ago, @attybernard and I went on our last coffee date before spending the rest of the day cooking and cleaning in preparation for our little girl. Something about that day just made us feel like she wasn’t going to be long. The very next day she joined our world, and these have been the best 6 days of my entire life. 💕 #newmom #newparents #newbornbaby #pittsburghphotographer #thehappynow #thatauthenticfeeling #seekthesimplicity #abmhappylife #theeverydayproject #verilymoment #darlingmovement #littlestoriesofmylife #momentslikethese
  • Settling into our family of three, and this guy is the best teammate a girl could ask for. I never knew I could feel so much love—I could burst. #newparents  #thehappynow #livebeautifully #postitfortheaesthetic #inspiremyinstagram #chooselovely #thatauthenticfeeling #seekthesimplicity #abmhappylife #theeverydayproject #verilymoment #darlingmovement #feelfreefeed #littlestoriesofmylife #momentslikethese #postitfortheaesthetic
  • This girl entered our worlds yesterday afternoon—exactly two weeks ahead of schedule and right at the end of the Pats game—just letting mommy and daddy know who’s gonna be in charge of the schedule from now on. #newbabygirl
  • I hear we have some snow coming Pittsburgh, friends! 💕 Am I the only weirdo who is actually excited about this? You can find me in all the cozy sweaters and blankets, snuggled up on the couch. 😍 #theblogsocieties #shopstylecollective #wkloveyourcloset #pittsburghblogger #discoverunder5k #discoverunder10k #pghfashion #pghblogger #stylebloggers
  • I finally got a vanity at age 31. I never knew what I was missing! ☺️ #husbandwin #ikeahack #affordabledecor
  • Hard to believe how soon our little one will be joining us. Feeling all sorts of emotions, but mostly ready to meet her. I’m curious—any other moms to be out there? If so, when are you due? And those of you who are already moms, what words of wisdom would you share with those of us about to become mamas, too? #theblogsocieties #shopstylecollective #wkloveyourcloset #pittsburghblogger #discoverunder5k #discoverunder10k #pghfashion #pghblogger #stylebloggers #37weeks 📷: @julieanne514
