Stroll in Bloom

Florals are a timeless and playful pattern that compliments nearly every occasion in every season. Finding a floral piece in your wardrobe that you love and that fits your mood is a great starting point in curating an outfit. So, you grab your floral piece and notice the fabrics and the colors. The kind of fabric usually gives you a clue what occasion it will fit best and what weather it is best suited for. Also, notice the different colors of the flowers and from there you can find other pieces to add to it. We decided to pair a casual light blue v-neck with these trousers which goes nicely with the blue in the flowers. We wanted the red in the pattern to stand out, but a red or pink shirt would also go beautifully. Let the floral print do the talking and allow your accessories and other pieces to compliment it without distracting from it. We thought a neutral shoe and bag would help complete this look – these heels from Dolce Vita are truly perfect with any outfit and they certainly complete this look effortlessly.

Set Up

It’s no secret: we LOVE sets! Maybe you’ll remember this wonderfully tropical two-piece set from the summer. Now we have a more weather appropriate sweater set that can easily take you from running errands to a nice dinner out without much restyling. Toss on your favorite, go-to sneakers with this look for the day, and when the evening rolls around add some tights and black booties and you’re ready! For added warmth, you could easily layer a chambray or flannel shirt underneath to add some additional color and interest to this look. If you love a sweater dress but also desire flexibility, this sweater set would be perfect. Wear these two pieces together, or combine them with your well-loved winter essentials and you are good to go! Also, quick moment of silent reverence for this velvet, embroidered bag from Johnny Was. Such a luscious and functional piece, we are beyond obsessed.

Shift to Black

When in doubt, shifting back to those neutral tones and classic silhouettes can feel like the warm hug of familiarity and comfort! When using a neutral color pallet, feel free to experiment with new and different shapes and styles without feeling like you’re jumping too far out of the familiar. We fell in love with these square-toed slingback mules from Intentionally Blank, and while we no longer have them in store, this style is totally worth trying out! As much as we love trying new trends and styles, we appreciate Neuw Denim for keeping those classic looks in mind and we are thrilled to be getting more + more in the store from them (so keep your eyes peeled!)

Play every day.

We ventured down to Short Street Cakes to shoot with this great, newly painted mural that we’ve been swooning over for the past few weeks.  Without actually planning this outfit to go with the wall, it somehow worked out like we put a lot of thought to coordinating with it.  But really we were just lucky (!!).  Please someone buy one of our new Orla Kiely bags in her tapestry stem print for Pre A/W12 and take some fun pictures by this wall for yourself!
