Florals… for spring? Groundbreaking! No, we’re not channeling our inner Miranda Prestley for this specific time of the year (that’s something you should do all year long), but writing this post without thinking about floral prints would be a total disappointment.
Spring is probably our favorite time of the year because we get to leave our coats inside the closet and go out with little light jackets and even just our clothes, for the bravest ones. And nothing says good weather like a beautiful dress. One of the great things about dresses is that we can actually pick from a lot of options for different occasions and weathers. Spring calls for cute colors, good fabrics and of course, prints. But you don’t have to stick to florals if you don’t want, and here’s a great selection that you can wear for this festive season.
