Shop the Spring trend - Florals

I am soo upset at Mother Nature.Its already April - where is Spring?? If I was this late at a work deadline, I would be in trouble!!Come rain or hail, I am going to wear my Spring clothes/open-toed shoes this week and shame Winter into leaving..And if I am missing in action for the next few days, it just means I am down with pneumonia:-)

Fun and flirty floral Prints were big on runways for Spring/Summer 2010. Few things to keep in mind while wearing florals:
1) Make sure the print doesn't overwhelm you. They should be in proportion to your frame - smaller prints on smaller frames, larger florals on larger frames.
2) If you are going for a head-to-toe floral, choose one color from the pattern for your accessories and keep ur shoes/bag in that solid color.
3)If mixing floral pattern with another floral pattern, keep both of them in the same color family. Do not mix florals with stripes/plaid unless you are SJP, Olsens or Lady Gaga:-)
4) If you are doing one piece in floral,then again pick one color from the pattern and wear the top/bottom in that color.
Floral is a girly-girl print and if you are not a girly person, you can tone it down with boyfriend blazer or add some toughness with some fierce shoes or leather jacket/studded vest or fingerless gloves..

Good suggestions!

But for me this season I totally loved mixxing patterns. Stripes with floral..they are def a fashion risk but put together in a good way will def cut it. What do you think?
