With fall pastels in full bloom this season, the necessary additions of bits of blush to my wardrobe was a no brainer. But I also took the trend one step further by investing in pops of floral done in just the right way for Fall! So today I double up on my new floral wear by pairing two twirl-worthy pieces together, because let’s be honest, I don’t know how not to pattern mix… it’s kind of my thing 😉
I fell in love with this Milly skirt and first sight. Black tulle with pops of pink & floral print? uhm, SOLD ! (Where is the “praise the lord” emoji when you need it?). These pretty petal pumps had a similar “omg I need these like yesterday” effect on me when I saw them at piperlime. I don’t buy many shoes because I currently have to store them in my kicthen (#NYprobs) so when I do swipe my card for something south of my ankles, I make sure they are show stoppers but also versatile!
Since tulle and floral and pointed two pumps together scream girly-girl, I added a little bit of elegant edge with this Spiked Black Studs necklace from Have it Wear it Love it! I am kind of smitten with the simplistic yet statement style of this necklace, plus it was designed by two sisters – You go girls!
If you’re thinking of trying florals or pastels for fall (or both) just add black! Toning down pastel hues with a black sweater, or leather leggings is the perfect way to pull a Spring color straight into Fall. The same can be said of a floral skirt, just look for one with a black base (like mine) or add black tights and a black coat to one you already own! Oh and since one floral skirt is never enough, here are a few of my favorite options that need to make their way to my closet right about now.
