Ageless Style: April Showers, Bring May Flowers & Link-Up

I love flowers!  I love them as center pieces on my kitchen table, looking at them in my yard and also wearing them.  I was struggling to figure out what floral pieces I wanted to share with you this week and just couldn't decide so instead I decided to share a few of my favorites.  Last month Leslie had us work with the theme April Showers see here, and this month Marsha had us dreaming up pretty floral outfits.  Let's get right to it!

Outfit #1 Floral Skirt 

This floral skirt is so pretty.  I just love the defining shape of it and how it's asymmetrical length, making my 5'4 frame look just a tad taller.  I've done a little pattern mixing with the polka dots, or added a fun little dramatic sleeves top to it, but honestly this skirt doesn't need anything extra, it's a statement on its own.

Outfit #2: Pattern Mixing

I just love how leopard and florals go together in this really bold, statement outfit.  It's a favorite of mine for date nights and since life has returned pretty much back to normal around here, I actually can see a future of wearing it again this spring/summer.  Also, this little dress is on the shorter side, so sometimes I tuck it into jeans and wear this combo with jeans for work.

Outfit #3:  Comfort and Style

This midi dress is honestly a workhorse in my closet as a teacher.  It's so comfortable, the length is perfect for having to go up and down with 3 &4 year old's and it has pockets!!!!  

Outfit #4: Flower Cluster

As you can tell from the previous outfits, I usually gravitate toward large, bold floral patterns, but this dress is so cute with it's tiny blue little flowers all over.  It's the perfect dress to wear all year long.  I love the skirt ruffle, which always makes me want to spin around like a ballerina, and also the light weight sleeves are perfect for keeping you warm on summer evenings on the patio or in winter indoors.

Outfit #5:  Sunny Days

I LOVE this top.  The color honestly just makes me happy.  Wearing it is like having sunshine in my heart all day long.  

That's a wrap!  Which is your favorite?  
This post is instead of my regular Monday post, so see you on May 30th!

    Away From The Blue

    1. I need more stripes in my life now as I have none. Too bad we didn't live closer and could closet swap.
