The Darker Side of Florals

Outfit Details: DOYOU Floral Silk Blouse (c/o), JCrew Black Trousers, Zara Handbag (similar), Roman & Sunstone Live, Love, Laugh, Bracelet (c/o), Sheinside Sunglasses, Rocksbox Necklace

Florals are always on center stage this time of year. It's an easy print that can be re-styled for a fresh new look each time. Although most of us tend to flock to bright colors and neons, I'm personally a fan of the darker side of florals. Since bloomin' tees can quickly get feminine and girly, it's fun to mix it up and opt for a deeper color combo. Take this floral silk blouse from DOYOU for example, by styling this top with a pair of black trousers and funky accessories, it brings the outfit a surprising edge. 

Come summertime I'm typically dressed in sundresses Monday-Friday, but I made a vow to myself to mix up my weekly work outfits this year and embrace some sophisticated structure. If there's one thing I'm a sucker for, it's a loose fitted blouse paired with trousers. Thank you DOYOU for the new staple piece ;).

As a side note, it's college graduation week! Big congrats to all the recent grads. If you are looking for a special gift for a friend or family member to remind them of their journey ahead, I suggest this adorable Live, Love, Laugh Bracelet. It's the perfect everyday bracelet to wear to work and it even looks great stacked against other jewels (as pictured above).

Hope you all enjoy the holiday weekend!
