Finding the Right Floral & Confident Twosday Linkup

It's so easy to find solid color pieces for your wardrobe. There are a multitude at practically every store in all types of shades and styles. It's prints that I have difficulty with. Floral prints in particular. No one wants to look like their grandmother's couch. Or a pair of hotel drapes. So whenever I find the perfect floral print I buy it faster than you can say, "Checkout!"

So what do I look for when searching for the perfect floral top? Typically I find a smaller print easier to style. Several colors in the print are ideal for mixing and matching with other items. Not too many colors though; you don't want to look like a flower garden! A lightweight fabric makes layering and wearing across multiple seasons an option as well. This adorable top from Sammydress definitely met all my requirements and then some at only $10. Finding that perfect floral print helps me feel confident!

  1. Florals are tricky to shop for, I haven't mastered that yet. Glad you found a great piece for your closet.

  3. That floral top is lovely on you, the teal is really nice and it pairs so well with those pants!

    I'm picking with my floral prints too - probably why I don't have too many in my wardrobe!

  12. I couldn't agree with you more about floral prints and how sometimes it is hard to find the perfect print. This print is perfect and I love it with those pale blue pants! I need to add some more floral pieces to my closet, I have a dress and a sleeveless top... but, I need a long-sleeved top like this one for cooler Spring days!

  31. That is a great floral top, and I love it with the gray jeans! I'm the same way--it's hard to find just the right floral print, and because of that I don't have as much floral print things in my wardrobe as I'd like.

  46. I agree, patterned tops are much harder to find, you know the right one. I love that top and how its colors match every single (other) piece of your outfit. Great-fitting skinnies.

  47. Hahahahaa I feel the same way about florals! I think that's why I avoided them for so long. After my recent decluttering, I actually don't own anything floral print anymore - except for a dress. I'm trying to find a floral top with no luck yet!
