Flowers in Bloom, under the snow...

I was hoping that today would actually be sunny and mild tempratures as the weather people were predicting on the East Coast. A hint of spring in the air would have been perfect as I talk about the floral trend for Spring 2013, right? Well, instead, looks like we got a sneak attack from old man winter and woke up to SNOW!! Ugh... I really need to have a conversation with a certain groundhog... Anyway, I'm officially done with this winter, and figure it's about time we move on and talk about spring's biggest trends. I'm so excited for this spring- the prints, the colors, the sillouettes and, of course, the shoes!!

Let's start with florals. There are so many fun ways to wear floral prints. Dresses are the most obvious choice, but the floral dresses for this spring are far from the "Laura Asley" dresses of the past. They are fun, modern and even sexy. Layer a floral dress with a button down shirt or wear a blazer over one for a cool spring work look.

For me, floral pants = fun. There are so many ways to wear floral pants, you can dress them down and yes, you can even dress them up. I like to go the casual route and floral pants are my go to for weekend wear, that is when it starts warming up... Pair floral pants with a casual tee, some ballet flats and a fun necklace.

I know there are a lot of skeptics out there when it comes to florals. I sometimes hear, "florals are way too girly". To that I always say, there are many ways to wear floral prints. You can even make floral prints "edgey". Pair a floral top with a moto jacket, cage sandals and fabulous envelope clutch for a night on the town.
