Own The Look | Bloom Into Summer With Floral Prints

I gotta admit that floral's are one trend that I was a little bit skeptical about seeing come back in style. And that's probably because I tend to associate floral prints with things like my grandmother's bedspread. My disdain for all things floral started early, my mother would dress me in hideous dresses with huge flower prints and big lace bibb collars. She not only made me wear them to church but she'd also dress me in them for picture day at school. So now I'm forced to live with the torment of those photos actually existing.

Well I've grown up a little bit and my style has definitely changed over the years. I never thought I'd say it but florals are fashionably back in style and I like it! I've been seeing more and more prints that intrigue me and one's that I'd actually consider wearing * gasp * maybe my mother was just keeping me trendy throughout those dreadful years? Well whatever the case, I'm not quite ready to give her the satisfaction of knowing that I've secretly fallen in love with the style she forced on me for so many years * heehee * Check out a few trendy floral picks below.
