I’m pretty sure we’ve skipped winter this year. I’ve not wanted to jinx this seemingly non-existent winter by saying so but since we are just a few weeks short of March, I feel like it’s okay to admit that I have been 100% okay with skipping winter this year. My time is spring; it’s my favorite for prints, patterns, florals, colors, etc. I love going all in for spring florals. Dresses are usually the easiest to find in floral patterns so I try not to go too overboard. But floral pants, now those are diamonds in the rough. Two reasons why: 1) good prints are hard to find and 2) sizing and fit. Finding a pair of pants that wins in both of those categories is like winning the lottery. When I tried this pair on, I immediately wanted to go buy a scratch off — that’s how lucky I was feeling.
Another thought on printed pants, although I’m not one to shy away from prints on prints (my calling card is stripes and florals after all), I feel like with printed pants the best option is to stick with a neutral top. There’s a lot of ground to cover with pants, so I like to keep the pants the center of the outfit. Color can of course work with this pair, but sticking to white, cream or grey blouse really grounds the florals and doesn’t make too much of a show (like this Parker blouse or this easy grey tee). Party on the bottom, a nice quiet dinner for two on top.
