Florals? For Spring? As Miranda Priestly would say: "Groundbreaking". Florals pop up everywhere at the start of a new season as they're a fun yet simple way to bring your look to life with colors and bold prints.

This season I'm loving bold and oversized prints in muted hues, like the color palette found in my floral-print TopShop blouse shown above. I threw a white linen vintage blazer over my shoulders to lighten and differentiate the look and some of my favorite jewelry pieces like the Sarah Magid cuff from Intermix that adds a polished element to any outfit.

A good printed blouse is hard to come by but a wardrobe essential nonetheless. The pairing possibilities are endless, you can get as basic or creative as you want, and it can be worn all year if done right. Pair your floral blouse with denim and switch out your accessories accordingly, going with darker bags and bangles for fall, gold for evening, acrylics and silver for daytime. I love wearing prints to dinners, meetings or events and pair them with pressed trousers or a midi skirt for a more refined look. Once the heat rolls in, this blouse will be worn tucked in to white cuff shorts, a sleek navy or blush blazer, and a Cult Gaia handbag like the Bamboo Circle Bag for a playful, trendy summer look.

Do you love a good print as much as I do? I've rounded up some of my current floral favorites from TopShop and Target's Who What Wear collection and linked them with my outfit details below. Would love to know what trends you're loving for Spring in the comments below!
