Flower Power

Well I’m finally back from New York, and although I was sad to leave, it is good to be home with my hubby and kitty kids.

First a few pictures from the end of my trip to New York.

Thursday night my mother in law, sister in law, and I had a fun night out to dinner, just us girls. I wore my white Citizen’s jeans which I absolutely love and were worth the money, along with a fun Vince Camuto printed top I got at Macy’s with a discount and a gift card, and topped with a blazer I found at Forever 21.

My last day there, Sunday, it was my sister in law’s bridal shower, which was absolutely gorgeous, and I wore this hot pink dress my mother in law generously bought me when we hit the Ann Taylor friends &  family sale (no longer online but check in store, 40% off still going on). Normally I would shy away from something with a high necklace and an undefined waist, but I really love this dress and am glad I tried it on. Don’t hold onto rules for what you wear too tightly, sometimes things can surprise you! Right now Mad Men is showing a lot of 60’s wear and I feel like this is inspired a bit from that.

Here we are at the shower, my mother in law on the left, the beautiful bride, and Michael’s grandmother, Nonna.

For today’s post, I am participating in Marionberry’s Trend of the Month Challenge: Flower Power! I decided I would try and give you all a change of scenery given our sunny day here in Seattle yesterday and take my pictures out on our condo building terrace. The wind definitely gave me some trouble, but I managed to get a few good shots. Hopefully I will be able to take photos out there more often!

Floral prints are huge for Spring and Summer, but I don’t have many unfortunately. I wasn’t even sure what I was going to do for this challenge, but then I remembered I had this floral skirt I picked up in Italy on my honeymoon so built around that (seen before here). It is a little bit of an abstract floral, but I’m working with what I have!

Are you wearing floral prints this year? Be sure to check out Marion’s link up tomorrow to see how all of the awesome bloggers wear their flower power!

Skirt – Sisley (similar), Tank – Land’s End Canvas (old), Shoes – Franco Sarto (bought with the last of my Christmas gift cards!), Necklace – Premier Designs

Amy, you look amazing in that hot pink dress! Way to shop outside your comfort zone. I need to do that more often.

    Thanks Reina, I have actually been really surprised lately by some things I thought wouldn’t work for me! Just remember, it never hurts to try it on : )

Amy – so you are seriously beautiful! I adore all three looks here (the white jeans + pink dress + floral skirt). Might be 3 of my favs from you!
And the outside photos are beautiful! The wind worked like one of those fans models have at photo shoots 🙂

    That is so nice to hear Callandra, because I mostly have a hate relationship with my hair. : ) Thanks for the comment!
