Flowers are popping up everywhere in fashion this spring. This trend is one of my favorites (see my other favorite of black and white here) as it’s hard to wear flowers and be depressed.
I’ve combined this flower trend with a very hot color right now—cobalt blue.
Some of you might be saying that the heels on these shoes are too high and that you couldn’t wear them. Actually, the trick to wearing heels like this is to make sure the platform is an inch or two so that it gives you a solid base, and that you wear them to an appropriate event where you don’t have to walk long distances. I wore this outfit out for drinks and dinner.
Many of the trends this season are a win/win for women over 40 and women who have a little junk in the trunk. Case in point is the fit and flare dress. Reminiscent of the days of wearing a corset and flowing skirts(without the pain of the corset), the dress nips you in at the waist and then flows out to hide any imperfections in your lower half. See, that’s a win/win.
Why not wear some flowers this weekend. At the same time, get out there and smell the roses and have a fabulous one!
