Flirty Florals

As we finally settle into spring, I can’t stop reaching for floral. I’ve been absolutely obsessed with this floral skirt. After this outfit, I knew I wasn’t done mixing stripes with florals. To me, it’s one of the easiest ways to mix prints! When I was styling this outfit, it was all about the color. There are so many colors in the floral pattern of this skirt and I tried to play up as many as I could with my accessories — mint-colored glasses, a sparkly blue floral bib necklace, and bright cobalt cutout sandals. It’s a lot, but somehow it still works!

My floral fixation isn’t stopping at my clothing choices though. I keep reaching for the sweetest scents to spritz on as I rush out the door in the morning. Marc Jacobs Daisy has always been one of my favorite scents! I remember when the fragrance first launched, I was pretty much sold on the name alone. Growing up, my favorite flower was always the daisy. Each and every wrist corsage for homecoming and prom dances had to incorporate daisies, and I even named my child little puppy Daisy. But once I smelled the flirty fragrance, the deal was sealed. It’s sweet and floraly, but has a little hint of musk that I love.

Daisy Eau So Fresh is even more fun! It has more fruity notes added to the floral mix. I think it’s the perfect summer scent because it smells so playful. Plus, the bottles look so cute sitting on my vanity! (Is it just me or does the bottle definitely play a factor when purchasing a fragrance?)

    Bottle influences my fragrance purchases as well. They tell a story. My fave is YSL’s Parisienne. Shape was designed to resemble the parallel streets of Paris and walking through them the morning after.
