I Feel Pretty!

Happy Hump Day all! Hope your week is going well so far. Mine has been pretty uneventful but I’m not complaining!

While at Target yesterday, I bought the March issue of InStyle magazine. It was their Spring edition with all the trends for the season. One of the new trends is floral dresses, shirts, etc. As I was looking at the pictures of the pretty dresses I said to myself “Do I have any floral dresses?” Us big girls know about the love/hate relationship we have with floral patterns. I remember as a teenager HATING shopping because all the plus size clothing would have these large flowers on them. Who told the designer that putting a huge carnation on my bust would be flattering?!

Inspired by InStyle, I went into my closet and pulled out my floral Old Navy dress I bought back in December. I’m a sucker for anything with fluttered sleeves. It just looks so feminine and romantic to me. I love the mix of white, green, yellow and fuchsia in the floral print. The colors are vibrant but not too crazy that I can’t wear it to work. I put on my yellow cropped cardigan also from Old Navy to finish the outfit. The yellow cardigan goes perfectly with the dress and added more color.

Will you be following the floral trend this Spring?

    I am thinking about doing some florals for spring. I would love to do a floral jumpsuit with colors and background, similar to your dress. I love the yellow sweater, by the way!! Great post!
