Both floral pieces featured in this post are from last year's J. Crew spring collection. I have to say, I was way more excited about J. Crew's spring releases and prints (such as these Warhol-esque flowers) from last year than I am about the ones from this year. Yesterday J. Crew rolled out their new spring arrivals and with the exception of some accessories and collection pieces I was largely underwhelmed.
Maybe my lack of enthusiasm is due to the fact that I have acquired too many pieces featuring similar signature J. Crew silhouettes (how many button downs or pencil skirts can one person own?) or maybe it's just the aesthetics of what they have been designing lately, but I am not really craving anything. Well, I guess that's good news for my wallet!
Even my accessories echo the floral theme. Note the J. Crew Wildflower bracelet adorning my wrist in both ensembles. The flowers are definitely in bloom!
Here are my complete floral looks. As you can see I am really liking the fuller, midi length skirt for spring. It's so retro that it's hard to resist its vintage charm. What trends are you looking forward to for spring?
