I wanted to say thank you to every one who commented on my last post. Your encouraging and loving words help me so much, and I’ll respond individually very soon!

A couple weeks ago, the Five Take group took on the floral trend, so I wanted to stop skipping the challenges and just do a catch-up week. Last year I was really into florals, but when I looked in my closet I wasn’t finding many prints that were exciting me. I had sold some pieces, and the ones left were kind of predictable. After many, many attempts at trying things in different ways, I decided to take a dress and change up its style by making it a skirt. (You can see my original outift here) My camera was malfunctioning, so the images are a little out of focus in some areas.

I added on this pink ASOS peplum top over the skirt to give it a different look than the smaller, striped section it typically has. I had to giggle at the peplum top because it’s supposed to give volume to the hips, but because my body is naturally built that way, it just kind of “fit”. The top has a line right where the belt is where the material comes together, so I put the belt over it to bring back in the purples in the skirt.

Because the outfit had a lot going on, I kept my jewelry simple with a pair of silver, filigree drop earrings from Forever21.

I liked that this floral challenge pushed me outside of my typical outfit. It’s not often that you find me in skirts, and it’s the first time I wore a peplum top. Make sure to also check out the others’ posts to see how they took “florals”.

Nicole is currently in the process of moving, but if she ends up posting her floral five take, I’ll come back and link it 🙂

What do you think of my take on florals? Do you like floral prints? If so, how do you wear them and what types of florals do you like?
