Spring Florals

Florals, for spring? How groundbreaking. But seriously I can't help but wear floral at some point throughout spring. The fresh blooms of the season inspire my palette and my wardrobe instantly becomes girlier. But girly doesn't mean you have to lose your edge. A sweet top with distressed jeans instantly makes your look a little more relaxed.
