Now and Later: Florals

Many women think florals and fall don’t go well together, but that petal prints are only for spring and summer. The truth is, you can do floral in the fall.

#OOTD Fall Florals
The key to pulling off the look is to pair your floral item with darker colors. For example:

A navy blazer and emerald bowler bag tone down the bright floral pattern on the skirt and the orange shirt I paired with it.

#OOTD For the End of Summer
Since summer isn’t over yet, at least not according to the Chicago weather forecast this week, I would ditch the blazer to keep cool in the heat! Pair the skirt with a bright top and use a wide belt to break up the two pieces.

Even though we took these photos on a cool day a few weeks ago, I would definitely wear this #OOTD this week to keep cool during a walk in the park. Here’s a few more fashion photos from our shoot:

Gold accessories are the perfect accent to this warm weather look. Even though I am definitely not as tan as I would like to be, this particular metal still looks good with my (somewhat pale) skin tone.
