Among the Flowers



Today every things coming up roses … well daffodils? yes, i think those are daffodils - I'm really not sure, I don't know much about other flowers because I'm extremely loyal to peonies and sometimes dabble in gerber dasies…  Anyways, every things coming up daffodils (or something) in my seemingly basic b&w look. But don't fret, there is an element of surprise under this striped trench … so stay tuned!







My OOTD:
Jacket: Striped Forever 21 trench (old) love this one + 5 ways to wear it here
Skirt: White Tulip Zara Skirt (soo old, but similar styles here & here)
 Earring: DIY Giant Pearl stud (post coming your way soon), similar at bauble bar
Purse: Kate Spade summer house robbie (old, love this one for summer)
Bracelet: Graceful Glam gold bracelet by Shoe Dazzle (also comes in silver)
Shoes: Shoe Dazzle Neutral Strappey Kalya Sandal (on sale!)
Ring: Black White Flower Forever 21 Ring (old)


I'm obsessed with this bow back crop top - as soon as I saw it I knew I had to have it. I mean, black white and a big giant bow, plus it touches on the crop top trend? I mean come on, how could I resist! It's just long enough to wear with a midi skirt or something high waisted, but has a fun slit in the back. I had to pair it with my favorite striped trench (also here) to add a little mystery to the look - it's basically the most fabulous mullet ever: traditional black & white in the front and a whimsical bow in the back!
Love these images? me too - a big thanks to Pratik Doshi  who shot these - nyc bloggers, if you're ever in need of photographer, Pratik is your guy! His picture are bright & clear and he's SO FUN to shoot with! Pop by his Facebook page here // and instagram here

  17. Good things come to those who click "more" on this post---the back of that crop top was such a great surprise under the conservative trench. I also know nothing about flowers, but your flower ring (whatever kind it is) is beautiful!
