Style in Bloom

First things first can we talk about how much I love the balcony-ette at the new Dean Street Studio?!

I was on a mini mission with #ChooseJoyJune as something I'm trying to embrace more every month of the year: little intentional moments.

I'm a master at hustling through life's moments of gumption, and I embrace seasons of grace when I get to travel, but in the everyday it's a habit I'm having to build. 

Do you empathize? If so, my two answers have been walks, and a happy place.

I take as many calls as I can while walking in my neighborhood, listen to books on tape, or just let my mind wander.

And I come sit at my little flower box for mini-breaks throughout the day to just slow down and soak in.

I'm also floral smitten as soon as the sunshine comes out for spring!

In this ensemble I mixed three florals, and threw caution to the wind ignoring my traditional pattern pairing principles like "one busy, one bold".

The result might be a bit too bold for your taste, but whatever your comfort zone, I say push it every now and then.

One year ago I never would have worn this ensemble: three florals, sheer shirt AND some version of harem pants?! No way.

But I grow and evolve as a person, and in my personal style. I seek out new people on Instagram who push my boundaries. And continue to take risks now and then in the dressing room.

Life's too short to be scared. Play a little.

And whether you're wearing them or surrounded by 'em, take time to stop and smell the flowers. {wink}
