The Trouble with Florals
Outfit Details: Sunnies: Steve Madden (Macy's); Earrings: Gift; Cardigan: Target: Top: Thrifted; Pants: Gap (Thrifted): Shoes: Thrifted
I love floral print - always have, always will. I acquire the majority of my floral through thrifting, mainly because that's how I find my best & most unique items. Don't get me wrong, I occasionally fall victim to the cute & cheap offerings of Forever 21 (like the two pairs of floral print denim shorts I just bought & cannot wait to wear), but, as a general rule, I try to avoid purchasing super trendy items that billions of other girls are wearing.
This top is a recent Goodwill find, and I'm pretty much head over heels in love with it. Tell me, though, do you think it's too grandmotherly? For me, that's the trouble with floral print: sometimes there's a fine line between cute & geriatric.
