Well hello again outside world. Nice to see that you stopped raining for a moment and cooperated with my outdoor photo shoot. You see, I have lots of things to talk about today {kinda like how there are a lot of things going on with this outfit} and a rainy day just won’t go along with my whole PLAN. Let’s start with the outfit. I may have gone a little over board during last night’s inspiration session, but I couldn’t resist this floral + military look. Then I took it one step further and added my leopard print flats for good measure. Is it too much? Maybe. Do I love it? Absolutely.

Why did I go the floral route? Well see, Linda and I announced the top 3 choices for next month’s Everybody Everywear {floral being one of the choices} yesterday I couldn’t resist wearing my favorite top until May 10th. I try my best to be impartial but I think I have a clear favorite this month. But the truth of the matter is that the decision isn’t really up to Linda or me. It’s up to you. So go vote!

And what about this scenery? It seems as though I have a thing for parks. But I will have you know this is a totally different locale {and state} than my previous photo park. Anyone else getting a bit of Monkeyface vibe with the bridge as my backdrop? Yeah. That was intentional. If I had her photoshop skills I would have gone the whole animated face route but I don’t, so I didn’t.

So let’s see…did I hit everything? Fashion hodgepodge? Check. Everybody, Everywear? Yep! A little ode to my friend Monkeyface? Double check. Well alright then. Let's consider this a success.


Floral Top Remixed

Pin It!

  1. Love the bright pink against the military green! And I think it looks fantastic belted! (Wouldn't have thought of that)

  3. Really love that combination of the pink flower with the military jacket. I made a small brown & white bird-print flower for my military jacket that I love to wear- but the flower is so small it certainly doesn't make the statement that yours does. Jealous! And the location was lovely! Good job! :)

  10. I checked my Old Navys (yes, at least three of them) for this amazing flower pin, but alas, no luck!
    My massive shoulders would probably dwarf it anyway... I love your location today! PRETTY!

  11. I am in love with this hodgepodge! The patterns work, and that flower is the perfect pop.

  12. I love this outfit!! We must be on the same wavelength because it reminds me so much of this outfit (http://thecoastalchicster.blogspot.com/2011/04/april-flowers.html) that I wore last weekend, and I was thinking the same thing -- too much going on! But I got some decent feedback on that outfit, and I've got to say, I don't think there's too much going on with your outfit either. I like the whole military/floral look and the leopard flats are super cute. =)

    I've got my fingers crossed for florals this month on EBEW. I wore a floral dress today, and took some photos, so if floral wins out, I'm good to go. I voted. =)

  14. Never thought an utility jacket would look that girly and pretty, no one rocks flower pins like you, they are like your signature accessory love it! Glad you are having better weather, can't wait to see you wearing springy outfits!
