Weekly Finds: Flora and Fauna

“Florals? for Spring? Groundbreaking.” Unfortunately, I tend to use this line from The Devil Wears Prada in everyday conversation more than I’d like to admit. Still, I can’t help but get excited when a new crop of florals walks down the spring runways every September. Just because this is a standard print in every fashionista’s wardrobe doesn’t mean you have to style it in staid, boring way. Right now I’m loving the floral-on-floral look, as seen on the spring ’12 runways of Mary Katrantzou and Erdem. Combine my floral suggestions below for a look that even Miranda Priestly would approve of.
