Summer Florals

One of my favorite things about summer is lounging around the flowers while dressed like one...

I always love to pay attention to styling options for florals and often get inspiration from unexpected pairings like a denim shirt with a floral skirt or a retro inspired pencil skirt with a floral print tank. 
What or who do you look at for styling inspiration?

Styling Inspiration: Victoria Lee for L’Officiel Singapore June July 2011

It's always exciting to see an editorial with fantastic styling of separates that you can actually wear everyday. Such is the case with this editorial featuring Victoria Lee for L’Officiel Singapore June July 2011 issue.
This ed. is proof that everyday separates can look phenomenal if they are the proper fit.

It also goes to show how important it is to style your hair- I adore how they fit Victoria with dark, rich auburn hair in a curly bob that is more contemporary but with an obvious nod to retro. Taking the time to style your hair differently than your everyday look will not only upgrade your separates from business casual to truly fashionable, but will also add a little excitement and variation to your day..and who doesn't need a little more of that :) 
After seeing this editorial I've been inspired to try something new. Youtube tutorials are a great source of hairstyling tutorials and ideas - I particularly love the ingenious expertise of Pixiwoo.

Have a lovely day everyone!
