Floral week: Roses are hot pink and blue (diptych)

I love the idea of WIW diptychs, because I love matchy matchy and even more when I can do twinsies with myself! I bought the navy version of this Halogen floral sweater two NAS's ago and wore it all autumn with burgundy skinny jeans. This spring they made a version in white, paired with a hot pink eyelet skirt (6). I wore that combo all spring and summer with sandals and sneakers (4/5). I finally figured out I could pair the blue sweater with the pink skirt and wear them with my blue lace up ballet flats. Then I realized I could do the same exact version in white with my cream lace up ballet flats! I can wear this outfit year round! And it's been so hot lately that I can wear both versions one right after the other and they both are seasonally appropriate.

Plus two more bonus floral outfits to round out Floral Week.
1-2. Halogen floral sweater in navy and ivory. Halogen hot pink eyelet skirt. Ugg Izabel lace up ballet flats in blue and cream. MZ Wallace tangerine Tribeca satchel. Kate Spade butterfly necklace.

7-8. Zara floral and koi wrap top. Vince Camuto red tube skirt. Munro Abby bronze sandals. Alexis Bittar necklace. Ms. Scarlet.

9. Splendid burgundy top, Anthro floral skirt, Longchamp tote, Munro sandals.

    Love love love the floral sweaters! So so pretty! I am a huge fan of florals and an even bigger fan of matchy-matchy :D I love ALL the outfits, but #7 is extraordinarily smashing! Love the sleekness and elegance of the fitted skirt and the floral crossover blouse - super fab!

    First off, I gotta say I love every single one of the items you posted.  AND THEN when you put them all together you take my breath away.  I am literally in awe of you.  I think you have just convinced me to buy both of those sweaters.  

    Sidetone:  I have always loved matchy-matchy.  And you do it better then anyone I know.

    Really happy outfits, and YLF, GP, as always! Florals and matchy brights were made for you!

    So glad you're posting again! My favs are 1 and 7.

    I love mixing looks like these! Florals are one of the best patterns for mixing and matching, and bonus when there are multiple versions.

    I love 1-2 on you especially. That is one of the prettiest florals, isn't it? I almost pulled out that dark background floral sweater for the first time of the season yesterday, but we decided to go to see a friend's band last night so I chose something more rock'n'roll than floral. :-)

    Oh, and I'm also a sucker for a koi print! You got those sneakers that I lusted after, and I still look longingly at them even though I never pulled the trigger and I think they might have sold out.

    These lovely florals are pretty on you. #4 is my favorite. Does the top in #4 work with the skirt in #9?

    Hi, sweater twin! You're making me wish I had picked up the white cardigan too. At the time I was off cardis but I seem to be getting back into them now. Wonder if it's still available...
    your koi top reminds me of my cherry blossom blouse. Now I really wish I had a hot pink skirt to pair with it.

    I love your necklaces too!

    It's really good to see you posting more again. You look amazing.

    Beautiful floral outfits! I love that necklace in #8 - it has an interesting shape.

  • Jenn replied 8 years ago

    Those are some crazy-gorgeous florals, and the skirt + sweater silhouette really works for you! I think I love #9 best, though. That skirt is amazing!

  • Karie replied 8 years ago

    Gorgeous! I love the floral sweaters - the lighter one is my favorite.

  • unfrumped replied 8 years ago

    So beautiful! Who knew hot pink skirt would go with everything? The floral colors are fab on you. And the koi top -- want!
