Floral patterns come in all sizes, shapes, and colors and can be worn head to toe, either alone or with others as a wardrobe bouquet. Looking through my closet, the one pattern or print that stands out the most is floral. I have them in all shapes, sizes, color palettes, and styles. From scarfs to shoes and all in between, florals are well represented in my wardrobe. It’s hard for me to resist a pretty flower.
Not Dead Yet Style blogger Patti recently featured dark florals which showed how fitting they are throughout the year and I couldn’t agree more. When I started this blog last year I had an idea for a recurring feature where I would showcase a different flower from my ‘garden’ (aka closet) every month like I did with this post but I hadn’t yet made floral posts a regular occurance. If you read my 16 Goals for 2016 post then you know that one of the goals is to “increase my blog and Instagram followings each by 16 fold” but that won’t happen without a game plan. One element of the plan is to start a link-up and what better theme for me than floral.
So there you have it. A newly minted link-up and, in keeping with the ‘whatever …’ style of the blog, I’m calling it Powers the Flower. A graphic is in development but I didn’t want to wait on rolling out the link-up. For my first Powers the Flower post I am sharing additional images from Day 27 of my 31 Day Footwear Challenge. I love the abstract quality of the floral pattern in this dress and the colors. In warmer weather I have worn this dress to work with my blue suede T-strap pumps (see Day 2) and a bright pink sweater.
