I know its quintessential to wear flowers in Spring/Summer, and to be quite honest I have never really been the type to wear flowers, BUT I have surprised myself and worn them quite a few times as of late. I think it is because the florals are quite subtle in colour, so they are not as overly feminine?
If I am wearing a floral piece, I either pair it back with a classic wardrobe staple, or an alternate shoe to toughen up the outfit a little (i.e. my biker boots). Nothing like a little flower power.
