what to wear: florals


It's "What to wear" time and this week our theme is "floral"! My post should be called "Pastel florals", I combined pale green with light pink, soft grey and sea wave color. I had a hard time picking an outfit because I have so many floral items! I didn't even realize I was so much into flower prints till I went through everything for this post. I decided to go with a maxi skirt that I found in a thrift shop last September, I didn't get to wear it much then because it's too light, but now it's time. I have a similar pink skirt with floral print, so you'll see many flowers on the blog this spring-summer. I also wanted to try the grey shoes I got a week ago, and the streets were perfectly dry for taking pictures outside. 

My favorite thing in the whole post is the silk rose that my mama made for me. It was supposed to be a birthday gift but the package came early and I'm so very happy! There are a few other flowers ( a blue felt bouquet that I wear clipped to my yellow coat; and a bunch of summer field flowers for my room) in the package, culinary magazines with Russian recipes and lots of candy. It all makes me very happy and sad at the same time.. I wish I could be with my family for my birthday in a few weeks. But we'll definitely skype and everything, so I shouldn't feel lonely.

I love this outfit. It looks so easy and carefree and yet so well put together. I can't wait for it to warm up a bit around these parts so I can sport bare legs and sweaters without jackets.

Happy soon-to-be birthday!
