Style Me Friday: Inspired by Karla’s Closet

Those of you who follow me on Pinterest know I am pretty much obsessed with the floral pants trend this spring.  There are at least a dozen floral pant pins on my Stylish Musings board.  Now, Fab on the other hand, hates these pants.  He said I look like a middle-aged retired woman on the beach in Florida. (insert side eye here) LOL!! He is crazy! I stand behind these pants. I think they are so cute, and for such a trendy piece, the price was right, too!  They were only $14.95.

I thought this Style Me Friday submission from reader, Chi Chi, was a great opportunity to rock my floral pants.  I do have a floral skirt, but the print is more abstract/digital, and this season I am loving the botanical floral prints.  I love Karla’s loose fitting striped tee, but I actually don’t have that style in my wardrobe (gotta fix that!), so I am wearing a fitted striped tee instead.  Karla is rocking a nude patent pump, but I couldn’t resist the urge to rock my Zara sandals (these are back in stock, btw!).  Since they are taupe in the front, I got the look of a nude sandal which is both flattering and grounding with such a busy pant, then BAM! an orange party in the back. LOL!!

    I am loving floral pants trend as well. And Eboni…send me those shoes NOW! I love them so much! Business in the front…party in the back! lol xo, Rita

  12. Florals and stripes is definitely one my favourites. And it's so funny that you did this outfit, because I had also pinned it, and I used (much more loosely) to inspire this stripes and florals look: http://natashafatah.blogspot.ca/2012/03/cafe-la-g

    You look great!

    You did it AGAIN! Love this from top to bottom! LOL at you saying I stand behind these pants! Men just never understand the altitudes of fashion! They think matchy matchy or tshirt and jeans is the way to go! (side eye) No MAAM ill take everything that you're wearing! I'm all for this outfit and you executed it! LOve your spin on the shoes, it gives the outfit some pizzaz not like you needed too but it was a fun add on! gotta try this look!
