Florals for Spring? Groundbreaking.








Special thanks to MKW, and as always, my sweet photographer, Matt.

Dress (love this one too) // Jacket // Clutch (similar style) // Tights // Shoes (similar style) // Earring (comes as a set) // Sunnies

I wore this outfit for a Saturday night out with Matt and friends. I really do love a good floral for spring, and certain prints can be very slimming. The key is for a floral to be against a dark backdrop in a medium sized print. Both tiny prints and very large florals can make you look heavier than you are (think what a big hibiscus actually would look like on your butt). I also went with a dress with slight pleating around the midsection and an asymmetrical front hemline, both of which are extremely forgiving. The pleating disguises my problem area, and the hemline breaks everything up so that I look like more leg than middle. Finally, I'm wearing Spanx hosiery, which is the secret to looking slim in dresses and making cheap clothing look more expensive. I'm planning on doing a whole post about shape wear soon, so stay tuned.

By the way, I only have one piercing in each ear. These H&M cuffs clip on at the top so you can pretend you have several piercings for a night.

  1. Beautiful ear cuff!

  2. A great spring dress. I like how the jacket provides some contrast. Love the pumps as well, they keep the outfit elegant. ;)
