Banish all images of shapeless floral dresses and mumsy prints. The new spring florals are a little bit boho, a little bit watercolor, and are an easy way to add a little color to mom basics! Below are five great ways to wear the new spring florals.
Out on the Town
Few do girly as well as Rebecca Taylor, and her kaftan-style paisley silk dress (pictured above left) doesn't disappoint. Slip it on over jeans, pair it with metallic flats, or use it as a date night option with some serious heels. The button neckline and high-waist fit make this piece especially flattering for those of us with a poochy stomach or breast-feeding boobs. You can buy this dress at Chelsea Boutique in Boulder, CO, http://www.chelseabella.com.
Denver designer Stylewarrior’s strapless tube top (pictured above right) is a fun and easy take on the Spring floral trend. Wear it over a tank (as shown – I'm loving it over brown), peeking out from under a blazer or cardigan, or use it as a swim cover-up this summer. It will also take pregnant gals through their first 5 months or so. All of Stylewarrior's prints are limited edition, and this one (the Monaco print) has almost sold out. To purchase, or to see the other prints available, go to http://www.stylewarrior.com.
We don't get date night nearly enough, so when you get a chance, make it a hot one. I fell in love with Backstage’s floral print
strapless mini dress (pictured left). This dress nips in at the
waist, showing off curves (for those of us who have them) and giving the illusion of curves (for those of us who don’t). And did I mention the dress has pockets? ‘Nuff said. No go call that babysitter.
We picked this little number up in Boulder's Chelsea Boutique as well. http://www.chelseabella.com
Every Day Florals
If you like floral in smaller doses, slip on a pair of Old Navy’s fab floral flats (above left)and dress your little one in the matching girls’ dress! Or add a punch of color with Echo’s flower stamps cotton and silk scarf (pictured above right). Floral accessories like these are a fun, easy way to infuse your tee-shirt ‘n jeans uniform with a little dose of Spring!
