Electric floral

Not even my neon floral could brighten up today's gloom; yes it was another grey rainy day. There have been no shortages of those this spring, and now that it's May, I've really had enough!
It was also 50°, which is much too cold for what I was wearing.

I wanted a photo of the lace back of the cardigan, but forgot to move my braid.

Wooo this is great! I love love the colors although yes, it was freaking cold. It was 48 when I went out for Starbucks... at 2pm :( I love lace back things and I like that you can see the floral pattern beneath yours!

I love the mix of the feminine lace and floral with the edgier zipper skirt. Sorry it didn't brighten the weather! Hopefully May flowers will be there soon!

I love all the little details of this outfit - the bright floral print, that gorgeous ring, and the back of your sweater! Also, the skirt and blouse are giving off a really great 80's vibe. Hope you get some sunshine soon!

50 degrees makes me cold just thinking about it! How lucky though... I wish I had a few extra days to wear some of favorite cooler weather pieces one last time!

Isn't it APRIL showers bring May flowers? Not MAY showers? : ) This floral top is so pretty! Def a visual pick-me-up, despite the weather!

lilacpurplesky said...

Yay, the weather is so bad now compared to what we used to have....!
I love that top, it really is super nice. I adore you necklace too! And the coordination between the ring and the top is great!

I think my favorite part of this is how nicely your nails match your top :)

The lace back is a really pretty touch.

Cee said...

We've had a rainy spring, too, following a rainy winter, and I'm feeling just like you. I've tried to brighten up my outlook by wearing my spring clothes in spite of the cold and rain, but you're right- it doesn't do the job every day. I absolutely love your bright floral tank, though. It's the perfect match for your cardi, especially because you can see the florals peeking out through the lace detail :)
xox,
Cee

Lorena said...

i like how the cardi looks from behind.. the colors of the tank come through...

OK, new follower! Your blog is adorable! I can't believe what you scout out on the cheap! I'm also a huge bargain hunter, but tend to lean toward the thrift and vintage. I love being inspired! Thanks!

Adore the zippered skirt. It fits you so well

Shea said...

I know what you mean, we've had lots of gloomy days here too :( I love the pretty bright colors of your top, and how they peek out beneath the lace on your cardigan!

Mrs. J said...

Great skirt the side zipper adds loads of cool points. I love the items you paired with it especially the cut-out cardigan.

ps. What kind of top coat do you use? Your nail polish has been lasting for days!
