Winter Flowers

There’s apparently some idea going around that floral print is only for Spring. Although I’m personally not a fan of floral print, I have two pieces with it in my closet: my boots. They gave me the idea to show those that love florals but are on the fence about using them outside of warmer weather that they can definitely wear them “outside of season” as long as they know how to style them. For me, instead of having a pop of color, I had a pop of flowers!

Here’s a closeup so you can see them better!

The way I incorporated the floral print is subtle but it could easily be done with, let’s say a full floral dress, if the colors were more muted or if the flowers depicted commonly bloomed during the fall or winter.

As usual, matching the colors of what you want to stand out with a few other things (or making everything else neutral) sometimes helps to make them more noticeable. I chose a burgundy coat to go with the darker flowers and wore some pinkish makeup to go with the lighter ones.

Don’t forget, once you find your own way to show off your winter florals, have fun! You have beat the odds and shown the world that the “rules” of fashion can be broken.

Now that I’m starting to include makeup in my outfits, here’s what it looked like.

I wore a beige pink blush and a pink glittery lip gloss. The glitter was kind of annoying but that was the only lip gloss that had the pink I was looking for.

On my eyes I used all matte shades to go against the glitter in my lip gloss. I think I mixed a dusty rose and maroon color, and I used a burgundy eyeliner.

To pull the look together I wore a burgundy colored bow, diamond earrings, and this little puppy ring. It reminds me of my dog, Mr. Bean (short for Mr. Cocoa Bean), who unfortunately passed away last summer.

I hope this may inspire some people to wear their florals no matter what time of year. A bit of fashion experimentation can’t harm anyone, so why not?!

Should I Put Music In My Posts?

Hello little corvids! I will be uploading more content as soon as I finish tweaking the blog to my liking, but for now I have a question for you. Do any of you like listening to music while you read a blog? I like to listen to jazz or classical music when I read things, so I thought it would help you to understand the type of person I am a little more. Here’s a poll for you to vote on so you can help me to make my final decision. The input of my viewers means a lot to me. 🙂

Coming Soon
