Undeniable Attraction

Jacket - Gap, Skirt - F21, Necklace - H&M, Shoes - Santee Alley
There is something about a floral print that just begs to be combined with an easy denim jacket. I can't explain it, the two things are just drawn together. Like peanut butter and jelly. Milk and cookies. Tori Spelling and Lifetime movies. Me and shoes. It's an undeniable attraction that you just can't fight. At least that's what I tell the boyfriend every time I go shoe shopping. That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

Those of you who are not new to this blog know that I have a serious love affair with florals. (See here, here, and here, for starters). I have had this love affair for decades, and I'm so excited by all the floral that is out there this season. And I'm especially happy that Everybody, Everywhere is hosting a floral challenge today. Today is Flower Day, people, get your girly on!

I had a really hard time with today's challenge...not because I couldn't find something to wear but because I had SO MUCH floral to choose from in my closet. I finally opted for this cute navy and pink printed skirt and a simple coordinated tank top. Although I love pairing florals with coordinating colors, I have to admit that it can sometimes make me feel a bit like a kindergartner (am I the only one whose mother used to LOVE to color-coordinate my outfits before I started picking my own clothes out?), so I love how the denim jacket breaks up the coordination and keepts the outfit from looking overly feminine. No point in fighting that undeniable force!

Thanks EBEW for hosting this floral's always fun to see how everyone styles the same trend!

I love how you tucked in that top and belted the skirt, one of the best outfit cominations (at least according to me!):D

@Elaine thanks, girl!
@Eclectic Flair I'm glad you like the stop tucked's actually a big blousy thing, but it all fit under the skirt! :)
