Tonal florals

I love a good contrast of styles. Pairing a floral print with leather is just the kind of mixing and matching that keeps things interesting for me. Not too girlie, not to edgy. Just right. I sound like goldilocks over here! For this look I went with tonal greys and purples. Love the impact of it. It’s been such a fun week and looking forward to unwinding this weekend, taking in the warm weather, and cooking some tasty food with Brian

P.S.- A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of hosting an event for J.Brand Jeans along with StyleCaster and Bergdorf Goodman. (Click on their names to see photos from the event!)

    I love love love the tones in this outfit, with the bright bold purple and that grey! I use that beigish grey in my house a lot for decor, but I love it in your outfit! I’m totally inspired to work it into my wardrobe now. Are those shoes still available at Payless?!?! They’re super chic.

    Love the way this plays with neutrals, and how the different tones of beige/gray make the fuschia so lush and saturated.

    Super cute look! Love the floral pants and the pumps!

    These floral pants are definitely more subtle than some I have seen in the market. However, I will still pass this trend. I did get some polka dot jeans which I hope might be a sweet substitute. :)

    I love, love, love the floral jeans! I like it with the color of the blouse.

    One of my favorites of yours! I love the subdued nature of these floral pants and how you still made them pop. Thanks for all your inspirations!

    I love smaller floral denim jeans. It’s lovely because it makes the top colour stand out even more! the event sounds like it was good fun. :)

    I love how you’ve styled that top! It’s such a great color and you use it so wisely. Also, I was able to perfect my top knot…then my niece asked me “what is on your head!?”. So…I just have to wear it enough times that it becomes a regular thing. Hahaha

      BAHAHAH. Top knot!! YESS. Not everyone understands it that is for sure, but glad you got the hang of it!! Cheers! xo, Kim
