Do you know what I love about January? After the holidays, after the tree comes down and the stockings flee the mantle. After the ornaments are packed away and the post holiday sales are shopped. After all of that, the spring catalogs start rolling into my mailbox, filled with bright and cheery colors, bubbly pastels and fabulous florals, and the promise that winter will soon be over (except for those of us who live in perpetual summer on the California coast). Don’t get me wrong, I love the weather here, but sometimes I mourn the loss of boot season. It’s more like boot day here, which sounds like a theme day at my kindergartner’s school. I digress.
Lately, I’ve been loving the vibrant floral prints that seem to be everywhere. I’ve put together a few of my favorites here. Pair them with smart solids or be bold and mix in a stripe or geometric print. If a floral dress or skirt is too much for you, shoes are a great way to mix in a touch of floral for some unexpected fun.
