jacket/shell Anthropologie dress Banana Republic [similarwatch Michael Kors

You may recognize this floral shell that Lindy is wearing from this post. It was such a great deal that I bought without thought. It is very striking- which sometimes leads me to not wear it. It seems a little "bold" for my day-to-day. But, it is actually super versatile- while it looks quite fancy here, it also looks great with skinny jeans, a striped top, and ballet flats. AND, the different colors in it allow it to be paired with black OR any shade of green or pink. I will try to do an outfit post on with it worn differently ASAP so that you can see the multiple styles of what I originally thought was a silly impulse buy.

PLUS, it is pretty clear floral isn't going anywhere fashion-wise. While a lot of us aren't about to rock a full floral pantsuit... we are in business to find at least a nice jacket. Since this Anthropologie one is no longer available, this cute one from Pim + Larkin might be what you're looking for. It is cute, lightweight, and at the right price point to spruce up your summer wardrobe. What do you think of floral- is it going to be your summer staple?

  7. Teach me how to do a top bun! My hair is long enough but I haven't figured out how to get that type of volume.
    PS I bought a similar top at Nordstrom Rack, totally different from anything in my wardrobe, but I put it on and said yes, yes, you're mine! I felt I was channeling Kelli on that purchase ;)
