“Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking.” – Miranda Priestly, The Devil Wears Prada
Miranda Priestly would shake her head disapprovingly at my love for all things floral.
But I can’t help it.
Flowers bring a smile to my face and put a spring in my step. Instead of the traditional sundress covered in floral print, it’s time to think outside the (window) box this season and find other ways of satisfying our floral cravings.
Floral prints don’t have to be all girly and sweet; try mixing it with other patterns for a bit of edge. Here’s a roundup of traditional and not-so-traditional ways of wearing the pretty print…
