Flower Power

Top - F21, Skirt - Anthropologie, Shoes - Santee Alley, Bangles - F21, Earrings - ModCloth
I bought this floral skirt at Anthropologie a couple of months ago on a dark and rainy day to remind myself that sunny days would return soon! I was so excited to finally break it out for date night. I love the navy piping and the print, not to mention the fact that it has pockets (I love pockets on skirts and dresses!). I wanted to pair it with an unexpected colored top but ended up cheating a little because I found teeny tiny flecks of purple in the print that I missed the first time around.




I must admit, I am loving all the floral that is popping up this spring. I am an unabashed girly girl, and a floral skirt or dress with some cute heels is my favorite uniform for spring. Plus, since florals have so many different colors, you can remix your items in so many different ways with different colored and style tops. It's like each floral skirt yields you four new outfits, and who can argue with what a bargain that is?

Speaking of remixing, what other colors would you remix this skirt with? I am thinking maybe pale yellow or maybe green, but I was having trouble seeing other options. I'd love to hear what you think!

I could definitely see pairing the skirt with yellow, but I'm at a loss as for other colors. I am new to the trendy fashion scene having previously only stuck to timeless classics, and I'm trying to get out of my comfort zone a bit when it comes to color combos, etc. I'll be interested to see what you come up with for this cute skirt!

Thanks, Kathy! I keep coming back to yellow too. I guess I should stop fighting it and just go with yellow!

pale yellow would look nice, also a bold red, or any shade of red really. maybe mix it up with a linear patterned shirt even. i love mixing patterns. black, white, ivory, pale green would also look nice. you could do so much with this skirt. maybe pair it up with your over the knee boots!
