Floral Meetup

Alright, so you could say I'm a bit obsessed with floral prints this season.  OK, a lot obsessed.  I've loved floral stuff for a long time (it goes with the whole kawaii thing that you guys know I'm so into), and I love how this season it just seems to be everywhere.  Because I've been so into mixing prints, I decided to combine an outfit with using a lot of florals.  


For this look, I paired three floral items: a sweater, socks and shoes.  I completed the look with a handmade bow necklace that I picked up at the Unique LA Art show, mentioned a few posts back.  What do you guys think of my pairing?








Sweater: Abercrombie & Fitch (Old, cute & cheap one here)
Shorts: True Religion (similar)
Tank: Gap Pure
Jewelry: Earrings- Chanel (Vintage); Bow necklace- Homako (Etsy seller!)
Socks: (purchased in Tokyo, but how awesome are these? and these?)
Bag: DIY
Shoes: Urban Outfitters (Sold out, similar here)

AND PLEASE Don't forget to follow on Facebook (where I post sneak peeks of my DIY projects), on BlogLovin' and now on LookBook!

And now you can PIN this to your Pinterest below!!!
