When you think of floral prints, you imagine tea party, garden party or girly summer dresses. But floral prints can look chic and be work appropriate as well. It is all in how you style your floral prints and the pieces you choose to wear. Here are some tips.
Wear a floral print top under a solid color suit or a blazer. Wear a floral print shift dress with a solid colored cardigan. Wear a floral print tailored pencil skirt with a solid colored blouse.
Here are some great pieces so you can wear this look to work this summer.
Lots of love,

Everyone loves a good buy: No wonder Bloomingdale’s has zeroed in on Yoana Baraschi as one of fashion’s hottest new talents. The gorgeous, Romanian-born Baraschi – whose former life include stints as a sculptor, fashion illustrator and creative director for Betsey Johnson – rethinks basics in a cool, artful way (Sienna Miller, Rachel Bilson and Lauren Conrad are fans.) Can’t you see yourself in these?

Ombre, as you may recall, had a big moment a couple of seasons ago. Now officially on the style map, it’s also one of the easiest ways to enhance your curves: When the color fades in and out in the right places, nothing’s more flattering. Check out this gorgeous Burberry dream dress. And I love the gorgeous, saturated hues in Old Navy’s jersey maxi-dress, too. $25!

Did I say before how I’m a fan of hot pink? It’s bright, fun and so pretty with a hint of a tan. And after seeing Blake Lively in this dreamy strapless dress (from the Michael Kors fall 2009 collection) at the CFDA awards, I’m doubly sold on the shade. I love how she kept everything else totally simple: rumpled-beachy hair, nude heels, minimal jewelry and makeup.
Okay, so I’m definitely copying this look. Are you with me?
