STYLE GURU STYLE: In Bloom

What could be better than florals? Can’t think of anything? That’s okay, neither can I. Flower-etched mugs, blossoming gardens and even floral printed shift dresses have my heart.

Fittingly, I fell in love with Dorothee Schumacher’s spring 2016 collection. The runway bloomed with the perfect balance of cream and floral. Color-wise, the dainty dresses emerged deep navy fabrics, faded into beige and closed the show in a rust tone. Personally, I connected most with this crisp cream ensemble, and these floral separates. Let’s be honest, I’d be happy to have any of these spring pieces grace my closet.

Getting dressed this morning, I tied in elements of my favorite runway looks to find my own, summer-worthy style. First, I slipped this floral shift dress from boohoo. This little number has an air of ’60s fashion with its body-skimming silhouette and ruched sleeves. I think the blush-nude base of the dress complements my skin tone, but would be flattering on girls of all skin tones as well. The bright floral details add the right amount of whimsy, fitting for my personality. It was a no-brainer that this dress needed to find a home in my wardrobe.

Finishing off the look, I chose a pair of nude cork wedges to elongate the leg. Don’t fret about the height of the wedge; they may be tall, but the ankle strap and sturdy base make them incredibly walkable. Finally, I added a multi-metal necklace from Earthbound Trading Co., my everyday rings and a simple cross-body bag. With a bit of flower power (and a bit of sass) I was ready to take on the day.
