Summer Floral to Holiday Floral

If you’ve been following me for a while then you know florals are my absolute favorite print. You’d be hard pressed to find a floral print that I don’t like. Back in August when I went into LOFT to use my birthday discount (and bought the wildflower babydoll dress that I wrote about here) I picked up this sleeveless black top with a sweet floral print. The floral print is so cute and whimsical looking, but what really drew me to the top was the ruffle design from the shoulder and fluttering halfway down the front of the top. That and the really simple floral print.

Now obviously I’m not going to wear a sleeveless top to work in December. And actually even in the hotter months I don’t feel comfortable going sleeveless to work. So I decided to wear a kelly green cardigan with the top to play off the tiny bits of green in the flowers and I thought that the bright green would be perfect for the holidays.

I wore this to work one day before the holidays and it was the perfect way to make a summer piece work for the winter especially the holidays. Now, it was easier to transition this piece since the top is black and darker colors lend themselves better to the winter, but nonetheless I think it was a success!
