Floral Picks {Guest Post} Carly of a simple affair

This lady needs no introduction. Carly from a simple affair is taking the blogosphere by storm with her funny rhetoric, fabulous style, and sweetness. Seriously, if you haven't visited a simple affair yet then I suggest you do so asap. You.will.not.regret.it. Take it away, Carly...

Why hello lovely FT readers! It's Carly from a simple affair again.  The last time I was here I was chatting up a storm about my love for pastels.  I had to include a gorgeous Topshop floral scarf at the end of that post as I do really love the floral trend that we are seeing everywhere.  That being said, this girl just isn't feeling so comfortable with the idea of floral print covering my legs.  I prefer to stick to black skinny jeans or my lululemon leggings.  I'm more of a party on the top not the bottom type of dresser if you know what I mean.

I firmly believe you should feel great and confident in what you're wearing.  Don't force a trend upon yourself if you are not comfortable with it.  So while I LOVE the floral pant look on other ladies, I just won't feel confident walking out the door.  I much prefer a pop of floral.  These flats will do just the trick, not to mention they are both under $70. Badda bing, badda boom.  I have always wanted to say that in a blog post.



Lucky Brand Emmie 2 in Blurry Floral $59 //  Nine West Taker in Natural/Multi Fabric $63

Thanks so much for having me today, Viv! Have a flor-tastic day! Ya, I went there...embrace it!



xoxo Carly

  4. Yeahhh about those floral pants... tried some on at Nordstrom last weekend and about cried they looked so bad on me. So I agree, floral prints in the others are a must. Flats - totally... a scarf to add a pop... even better! Carly, darling, you've done it again. Viviana, love it times 100.
