Outfit of the Day: Flower Power

Outfit of the Day: Flower Power

The weather is back to normal in Florida, hot and steamy. We had a slight reprieve with cooler days and less humidity. It gave me a chance to wear jeans, which is almost non-existent this time of year. Of course, by afternoon, you can expect the temps to rise, so thank goodness for flattering sleeveless tops.

I'm so loving the flower prints for fall, especially the tops. The blouse I'm wearing today is perfect for our weather. It has a V-neck opening which is flattering for all. It also flares out so no tummy or hip exposure. 

Today, my focus is on showing you how I created this simple outfit with the inspiration of my new flower power top.

The flowers in the top are a deep midnight blue with tan leaves against a light cream background. I decided to pop the flowers, so I paired the blouse with my dark-rinsed jeggings. 

The jeggings also work because the top is loose. I rarely wear loose tops with loose pants, unless it's really hot, or I just love the casual look. I prefer slimmer pants with my loose tops and slimmer tops with loose pants. 

I chose simple sandals with a little bling to add some added pop. 

My purse is tan and black to complement the print in my shirt. 

I did not choose a long necklace because it would be lost among all the flowers in the shirt. I could have layered some long necklaces, but I wanted the focus to be on the blouse.

 I decided to go with a simple pendant. The same is true with my necklace and earrings. The bracelet has a little sparkle to play off from the shoes. 

Putting the outfit together was easy and quick. Once I decided to make the flower power top my focus, my other choices were items to complement the top.

Playing up one item is one of many ways to create an outfit. It may be your top or bottom, a statement piece of jewelry or even the shoes you choose.

Enjoy the day. As I said, we are back to 90 degrees. I'll wear the blouse, but probably with shorts :)
