Fabulous Florals

Florals, for spring? Groundbreaking.

floral graphic top: H&M, no longer available (similar, similar, similar) | jeans: Old Navy (exact)
bow purse: Target (exact) | black pumps: Apt. 9, old (similar) | pearl earrings: Len (similar)

Well, no offense to Miranda Priesley, but florals seem to be back and
bigger than ever this spring season. Since I’m not big into prints in my
wardrobe, I love casual graphic tops like this one that still provides a
hint of the ever-popular floral print for the coming months. Plus, with
a pair of heels and big pearl earrings, this look can easily be taken
from running daytime errands to an impromptu date-night – with or
without an adorably cute puppy in your arms.  
Have you been sporting the floral print trend?

Shop the look:

!function(doc,s,id){ var e, p; if(!doc.getElementById(id)) { e = doc.createElement(s); e.id = id; p = ‘//shopsensewidget.shopstyle.com/widget-script.js’; var cb = new Date().getTime(); p += ‘?cb=’ + cb; e.src = p; doc.body.appendChild(e); } if(typeof window.ss_shopsense === ‘object’){ if(doc.readyState === ‘complete’){ window.ss_shopsense.init(); } } }(document, ‘script’, ‘shopsensewidget-script’);

  13. Thanks, Jana! I wish the concept of an "effortless topknot" actually took less effort. ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. Thank you!

  15. Thanks, girl! I've been all about the graphic tees lately for some reason – I just think they're easy to layer and dress up/down. You totally should wear your hair up – it would look amazing!

  16. Thanks, girl! That top is ridiculously comfy – I'm looking forward to just throwing it on with a pair of denim cutoffs during the summer.

  17. I definitely don't wear heels on a regular basis, but I felt it necessary to dress this up a bit!

    Posted 4.7.15 Reply
  18. Thanks for stopping by and for your kind words – you're too sweet!

    Posted 4.7.15 Reply
  19. Thanks, friend! Yeah, Finn pretty much steals the show wherever he goes. I like to call him my sidekick. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Posted 4.7.15 Reply
  20. Oh my goodness, you are too funny/sweet – thank you! Not going to lie – my hair was not cooperating that day, and it took me nearly 45 minutes to get that bun correct (it usually takes me about 5 minutes …). I did a tutorial a long time ago – search Freestyle Messy Bun tutorial in my sidebar. It's really just a combination of day old hair, lots of dry shampoo and hairspray, teasing and bobby pins. ๐Ÿ™‚

  21. You are so sweet, thank you! I've been very into graphic tees, too – I love being able to just layer them under a blazer, cardigan or denim jacket.

  22. Thank you!

    Posted 4.7.15 Reply
  23. Ha, thanks for noticing friend! That Anastasia Brow Wiz makes all the difference. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Posted 4.7.15 Reply
  24. Thanks, lady! My hair definitely wasn't cooperating when we shot these pictures, so I'm glad it looks good from the front. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Posted 4.7.15 Reply
  25. Thank you! Gotta love top knots.

    Posted 4.7.15 Reply
  26. Thanks, lady! Yes, I totally will wear this same look with my black faux leather quilted slip on sneakers.

    Posted 4.7.15 Reply
  27. Yes! It's not exactly practical for everyday wear, but I love it for going out or special occasions when I just need a few things.

  28. Thanks, Erin!

  29. I live and swear by Old Navy jeans – they always have the perfect amount of stretch to them, and they are the only skinny jeans that actually hit me at the ankle instead of being all bunched up at the bottom.

  30. I found that shirt when H&M was having their super online sale a few weeks ago, so I wonder if they were clearing out their inventory. I'm glad that I scooped it up! Finn does pretty much steal the show wherever he makes an appearance. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Posted 4.7.15 Reply
  31. I do the same thing! Thanks, girlie!

    Posted 4.7.15 Reply
  32. Finn thoroughly enjoys having his picture taken, so I thought it was time for a little guest appearance in a style post for him. ๐Ÿ™‚

    What a fun shirt and I'm loving your ballerina bun. It's my go too!

  42. Love the whole look!!! I like how you mixed your feminine top with a distressed jean. You could totally wear that with some flats or casual sneakers for a day time look too. I hope that you have a wonderful day!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  43. Beautiful!! I've been eyeing that Target bag – I think you've convinced me to go back and get it!

@Disneyland is full of hidden scenes and little details. This area in particular, right around the corner from Fantasyland, was my favorite of them all! Maybe because we were there early before the crowds came pouring in, or maybe I was taking a moment to be nostalgic ... either way this was the first time in a few months that I felt happy and 100% myself. Perhaps thatโ€™s the magic of Disney that Walt always talked about.  #adultsatdisney #disneyland
