Florals? For Spring? Groundbreaking.

I saw floral fashion attire left and right this past weekend, and not going to lie but I am all about it. Bill and I took a day trip up to Holland, Michigan to check out the Tulip Time Festival and had a great time. It’s about 3 hours away from Chicago, and let me just say I have never seen a city so on fire for something as simple as a tulip. Don’t get me wrong, I loved it, but this town lives for the two weekends the tulips are in full bloom. From its parades, tulip art, to tulips in every storefront window, these two weekends are like our fourth of July. Such excitement!

I knew right away I was going to wear a floral arrangement (so basic, I admit…) BUT when I saw this romper with a skirt overlay at Francesca’s I was so excited to wear it out with a cute bralette underneath and my red Target sandals. I am embracing the warm weather and vibrant colors because we have waited too long for these moments!

If you ever want to take a day trip to Holland, MI, I would recommend grabbing a bite at Butch’s, apple cider donuts from Crane’s, walking around Window on the Waterfront, and stopping by the 205 Coffee bar for a latte and cute photos. I really had a great time ooh-ing and aah-ing over the array of tulip colors, and we couldn’t have asked for a better weekend to be outside! Shots from my trip are below. Dare I ask what your favorite flower is? I bet you can guess mine.

Get The Look: Nicole Richie in Givenchy Florals

There is not a lot Nicole Richie hasn’t done. She shaved her eyebrows off when she was 11, had a hit reality show, and now is one of the top fashion icons…all while still saving time to tend to her at home garden. This past weekend at the Lucky Mag weekend, I found out that she wears dresses because her daughter loves it, and it was also her daughters request that she dye her hair lilac. While Richie looks like a princess in the eyes of her daughter, she showed up to FABB looking nothing short of glam rock. The piece that grabbed my attention? Her over-sized Givenchy floral blazer. Can’t afford to drop a cool $3,000? No problem. Here are some other floral options perfect for Spring!
