May Flowers and Polka Dot Showers

I am always one for noticing patterns, be it the kind on the print of a skirt or the kind that dictate my daily habits and routines. One pattern over the last few weeks that I have observed is that I am on a floral streak, donning mostly skirts or, in the case of today, a sweatshirt with cheery blooms. Perhaps my floral trend is due to the fact that it is May or perhaps it's due to the fact that I just tend to buy a lot of floral?

I bought this floral sweatshirt from LOFT last month on clearance for around $15. I saw it on a few other blogs and it met the criteria of being comfy and cute. Plus, I needed something to qualify my most recent order for free shipping. (Never, ever paying for shipping and handling is another one of my patterns!) When the sweatshirt arrived in the mail, I thought it looked a little something like my grandma might wear, so I played up the fun, dare I say youthful, possibilities of the print with a jeweled collar and polka dot skirt and some sweet Christian Louboutin pumps. Truth be told, these shoes kill my feet. Due to this, I had a few blisters before the day was through and this caused me to hobble around a little bit like a Grandma too!

  4. I have the very same sweatshirt (that I also grabbed on clearance) and love it! Love the way your styled it! Oh and I'm so with you on the shipping, I refuse to pay for shipping!

    pumps and push-ups

  5. I never ever pay for shipping either and will order a throw in. I've learned that I usually end up loving the throw in item and keep it... I think they know this and require minimum purchases. I love the mix of patterns and fun colors in this outfit.

    Thank you for joining TBT Fashion link up and hope to see you next week. Have a great weekend!
