Spring Is In

Floral Tank Top: Old Navy
Blue and White Bodycon Skirt & Ring: Forever 21
Blue and White Striped Wedges: Payless
Lavender Necklace: St. James Bazaar

Spring is in! Well, actually, in the Philippines, it's already been declared summer. But since we'd all want to be able to go through seasons in fashion, I supersede and proclaim that it is officially spring season! For this post at least. lol.

I love florals. I know some prints make me look more matronly that I'd like, but there's something sweet and girly about clothing that look like they've sprouted blossoms. In order to balance out the estrogen that florals are often associated with, I'd decided to pick this navy top with the not-too-feminine colors and paired it with another spring trend, stripes! (Who says fat girls can't wear stripes?)

What are the spring looks that you're excited about?

Hugs,
The Belated Bloomer

PS: My blog's turning ONE very soon! Can I get a whoop-whoop?

  3. Glad to be back on "The Belated Bloomer" with Spring on the way! Speaking of flowers, your style has blossomed beautifully with this sweet outfit. I think I like the top the most of the entire outfit. Nice cardigan, skirt, and wedge shoes to let your style come alive.

    1. I know what you mean about the very limiting seasons here, Nina. That's why every chance we get a little cooler here, I whip out my jackets. LOL
