Wear the Pants: Flower Power Edition Part II

Jacket: Kenneth Cole Reaction, Shirt: Joe Fresh, Pants: H&M, Shoes: JS Jessica Simpson, Bag: Vintage Coach, Sunglasses: Target, Necklace: J. Crew

Remember back in August when I ranted about my strange obsession with cropped floral pants? You don’t? Then please refresh your memory. I didn’t exactly style them the way that I outlined in that post, nor did I find street style shutterbugs following my every move, but I did get an unexpected boost of confidence from my latest purchase in the pants department. Not only are these babies inexpensive, but they also fit very well, and have editorial cred: I’ve seen them in Lucky and a couple other publications.  They also contain the colors of practically ever spring/summer top I own so the possibilities are endless.  Well that concludes my little ode to the H&M floral wonders, expect me in some similarly blooming pieces as the season continues. What do you think of the floral trend and how would you wear it? Feel free to discuss in the comments.

Dress Up

Dress: LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl's, Shirt: J. Crew, Sandals: Steve Madden

Happy summer everyone! By now you must be wondering if I’ve grown an extra head and no longer want to show my face, as I haven’t posted an outfit in a long time.  Rest assured, I have not become a two-headed hermit.  I have actually been doing a great deal of shopping to perfect my summer wardrobe and give you something new to look at. Behold the fruits of my labor (seriously this dress has fruits on it)!

Yesterday I decided to finally try the vintage-inspired trend with my first purchase from the LC Lauren Conrad line for Kohl’s.  I’m pretty impressed with her line.  Many of the items are very cute and affordable and this dress is no exception.  It features a humming bird/raspberry/leaf print and is the perfect material to wear on a hot sunny day.  I wanted to add a utilitarian touch to the very feminine look with the addition of this J. Crew button down, one of my favorite pieces that doesn’t get enough love on my blog.  Honestly, it was much too hot to wear the shirt out last night, but bare with me here.  I received the sandals as an early birthday gift and I love them.  They feature straps with rows of chains and pearls, perfect for a girl who likes to mix feminine and masculine styles.  To complete the look I stood next to a pitcher of correspondingly colored hydrangeas and gazed lovingly at them.  I often seek matching flowers to enhance my photos (just kidding, not really).
