The spring season is alive and well. Every where you look you can see things are ready blooming as Mother Nature is starting a new season. From the ultimate romantic date night dress to the petal power of peep toe sling backs, I’ve got the skinny on these bold blooms and where you can find them!
First things first, I am currently obsessed with Mahonia Studios flowers curated by Bridget Davis and this super sweet clutch from Off Broadway Shoe Warehouse comes in handy this season for all of your bold blooms. Neutral accessories are best to balance the colors; which gives those flowers all the light, spotlight to be exact.
Moving on up … To some wrist candy by Bourbon and Boweties at Dress and Dwell. Under $50 which doesn’t break the bank too hard. It’s a love it or leave it purchase. Clearly I went with “Love it” and purchased this bangle. I’ve worn it throughout spring, Thurby, Oaks, Derby, and last summer and clearly it’s making it’s rounds back into my wardrobe this spring and summer so it was worth the purchase to me.
What goes with a blue seersucker blazer? Blooms. Lots and lots of them. Jacket from Von Maur a few years ago, however you should still search high and low for this preppy must-haves.
Why save the blooms only for your bod? Bring them into your home as often as your wallet can spare. There was a study with Rutgers at The State University of New Jersey on the impact flowers can have on you, here are their findings:
– Flowers have an immediate impact on happiness. All study participants expressed “true” or “excited” smiles upon receiving flowers, demonstrating extraordinary delight and gratitude.
– Flowers have a long-term positive effect on moods. Study participants reported feeling less depressed, anxious and agitated after receiving flowers, and demonstrated a higher sense of enjoyment and life satisfaction.
– Flowers make intimate connections. The presence of flowers led to increased contact with family and friends.
My love for this dress right here runs deep. I found it on Pinterest eons ago and was on a mad hunt that lead me right back to my online source of majority of things in my house and on my bod. The online mega store, Amazon.
