If you’ve looked around you this summer, you’ll have noticed something: floral patterns are everywhere. And I mean everywhere. Children’s clothing, women’s clothing, men’s clothing, stationary, decor. And yes, books.
I’ve become obsessed with floral prints.
So much so, that I’ve been slowly revamping my wardrobe with them. Here are my four recent floral wardrobe finds:
A super cute, super comfy floral t-shirt dress.
This one is by LulaRoe. I add a skinny belt to create a waistline and ta-da — a cute, outfit. If it’s a little chilly out, I wear jeans underneath.
A couple of incredibly soft floral t-shirts.
Continuing with the comfortable, t-shirt vibe, I picked these up from Mindy Mae’s Market. They are so easy to dress up (just throw on a blazer with some dark jeans) and are also the perfect casual tee to wear with jeans or shorts. (Note: I’m actually wearing the orange flower t-shirt while writing this post!)
A gorgeous floral kimono.
I found this one in a random aisle of Ross while on my holiday in Hawaii. Kimonos are all the rage this year (although calling these chiffon open-cardigans by that name seems like a bit off to me as they are nothing like traditional Japanese kimonos.) So far, I’ve worn this with jeans and a tank top, and with a black swing dress.
My obsession with pretty florals has extended beyond my wardrobe.
Florals are so pretty and there are so many to choose from. They can be girly, soft, loud, bright, subdued. I found a few other items to add to my collection.
A pastel floral journal.
This lovely notebook is from Chapters-Indigo. I’ve been wanting to get back into journalling for a while (I used to journal every day) and knew I wanted a shiny new journal to inspire me to get back into the habit. Usually, I go for spiral-bound. But this notebook was just too pretty to pass up.
A watercolour floral pencil case.
This is also from Chapters-Indigo. My old pencil case was cracking and the seams were ripping. I suppose that’s what you get when you only spend a dollar on something that you carry around with you every day. What I love about this one is that the zipper is at the top – so the pens are all vertical in it. It’s different from any pen case I’ve had before and it’s really soft too.
Now, I want to bring my floral obsession to my bookshelves.
I’m a sucker for a beautiful cover. Aren’t you? Here are a few
