What to Wear: Floral

Hello ladies, it's that time again, I'm linking up with some fabulous bloggers to show you What to Wear. This week's theme? Floral!

This theme was particularly difficult for me for 2 reasons. 1. I don't wear basically any floral prints in winter. and 2. Despite yesterday being the official first day of spring, it's still very much winter here in Calgary.

 That's right, a quick look at my over stuffed closet reveals mostly solids and no florals at all.

So I was in quick a predicament over what to wear, luckily I'm headed to Cuba in a week, and out of total, can't contain it excitement, I've already packed! So here's a retro-y floral inspired outfit for this week's what to wear!

Oh yeah, that's me trying to 'model' on my kick-ass rattan chair that I snagged for free this summer.


Ok let be honest, everything but the shoes and the bag came from Forever 21. What can I say, if you're willing to dig through the racks, you can always find something great there. The shoes? From call it Spring. The bag? Michael Kors (a Christmas gift from my mom!)

The best thing about this look? The high waisted floor length skirt really makes you look tall and tiny through the waist. Even better, wrapped a different way, it makes a cute dress!

In Italy in 2012.

This week we're all linking up over at Nicole's blog, Gypsy in Jasper, so hop on over there to see who else is participating! Or to join along too!

Do you wear many floral prints? Are you going to hop on the floral printed pants train running thru spring fashion this year?


  1. Gah! I love clothes that can turn into more than one outfit so easily. That skirt/dress is perfect. JUST PERFECT.

    P.S. Can I fit in your suitcase?

  2. Wow! What an amazing dress- I love how you can change it up and that's really perfect for traveling. Which brings me to my next point... I'm SO jealous you're going to Cuba!! Can't wait to see your pics. Love that chair!

  3. I'm super jealous of your vacation! Love the skirt!

  4. I'm always hesitant to don florals -- any pattern really -- but that skirt is making me want to try it. My closet needs a revamp!

  5. Such a pretty outfit! love the retro vibe. :) have fun on your trip!

  6. Great outfit! =} have a great trip!

  7. Super cute! I only have a few floral things but I definitely want to stock up for the summer. Also, I totally want to disappear to Cuba for a vacation. The snow in Ottawa is horrible.

  8. I wish I was going to Cuba, too! So tired of this winter! LOVE your chair - what a great find!!

  9. Oh that's so cool you're going to Cuba. I always wanted to go, and my dad was pretty close to taking my sister and I were younger (he was born and raised there and has always wanted to go back). That dress definitely looks perfect for some warm weather and beaches!

  10. Cuba wow! Jealous! you look fabulous and hope you'll have fun!
