Blue Floral for Fall

What are loving about Fall fashion? For me, it’s the floral, the bell sleeve and embroidery that are really my style love language right now. I want them all and I wish I could find pieces that I totally love that include those elements. Fortunately, I have done just that with a sweet little floral top from H & M. I picked it up several weeks ago but finally decided to wear it to work on Friday with some jeggings.

Is it bad that I loved this look so much that I wore to church on Sunday? Well, I did! The only exception was that I put my hair up that morning. I knew this top could hold some potential to be casual but could also be dressed up for the office on days when I need to have a more professional look. So how can I remix this top?

Pattern mixing always gets me just a little bit happy. It feels like a style no-no and it was back in the day but since that day is gone why not embrace the beauty of being bold?!

The beauty of a completer piece is that it can be added or removed as needed depending on the temps. This look works with or without the jacket.

Office professional is another way to wear this floral top. Although my goal for the next seasons is to be more casual at work, I know there are days I will need to be adding those heels with either a skirt or dress pants.

Pattern mixing works for the office too and adds some fun interest to a navy look.

I know this top will worn over and over throughout the coming months. I’m looking forward to pairing it with sweaters and blazers as the seasons change.

And since it’s Wednesday I’m partnering with The Blended Blog to host our style link-up. Looking forward to see your posts today.

Have a stylish Wednesday, friends!

    I am curious about sizing. I am typically either a 2 or 4. You have nailed this look and I WILL be imitating you!;)
    • Hi Jennifer! About sizing - these jeggings are from The Limited and they are a 0. Typically, that's the size I wear except at H&M. Their pants are small and I'm usually a 4. In tops I'm an XS but J. Crew Factory I can wear an XXS regular or petite. Hope that helps. Thanks for stopping by!
