experimenting with extremes. florals.

it's the floral blouse again.
i was getting tired of trying to pair it with bright bottoms, figured black would be too boring, and denim just ok. i didn't have the right striped bottom and thought leopard would just be over the top (although, i'm ok with over the top!). that left florals, and i had the perfect skirt to match. the flowers are similar in size, both prints are somewhat watercolor-ish, and both are black-based...which all seemed cohesive in my mind.
i guess this would be my take on the head-to-toe print trend.

this past sunday was absolutely gorgeous. while waiting for mini-she, my friend and i packed our little coolers full of beer, chips and salsa, babybel cheese, and sushi, and headed to the beach park. we took a long walk then enjoyed our
adult beverages while the boys played.

michelob ultra in styrofoam cups....that's how we roll.
(top, h&m; skirt, f21 (similar); shoes, nine west)

in case you missed it:


pippa, a travel writer who doesn't see the point of marriage or commitment, is forced to rethink her take on love when she temporarily takes control of her father's wedding magazine. the storyline is predictable, but i like graham and her free-spirited character. overall, a cute movie.

  2. I totally LOVE the floral on floral action in this outfit, Becks! It looks like the Wizard of Oz effect: from black and white to color!

  6. You look great!! The floral combination is a winner, as far as I'm concerned! I prefer wine in paper cups under those circumstances, but I'm sure the beer was tasty too! Glad you had fun.
