Florals have been on my winter obsession list pretty much all winter long. In fact, I actually purchased this skirt before the end of last year. But, I had been really challenged in finding the right thing to style it with… so challenged that I had almost given up on making it a winter time look…. until last night.
I decided to “reassess” my closet and came across these pieces. I must admit this look definitely pushed my fashion comfort level (yes, even more than the dress over pants post). And I had more than my share of love/hate moments throughout the day today. Standing in the mirror this morning, I was ready to declare myself a fashion genius but after a few hours at work and a quick visit to the bathroom (and the mirror)… I started thinking more along the lines of #fashion fail! The thing is… floral prints already have so much color and pop — so it could be very easy to go too far. I certainly didn’t want to be in that category but I also didn’t want to do the typical either.
At the end of the day, I like how the look turned out. I decided to stay in the same general color scheme by pairing it with the printed chambray shirt, navy tights and blue suede heels and I think adding the navy blazer helped blend the pieces together.
What do you think? How have you pushed your fashion comfort level lately? Any love/hate moments to share? Let me know!
