Floral Pants

Summer Pants

My floral pants are great summer pants. They are made of thin material, and I love the bright flowers on the dark background. They can be worn with so many different tops to change up the look.

Pattern Mixing

I decided to do a little pattern mixing by pairing the floral pants with a striped tee. Last time I wore them I paired them with a polka dot blouse. It’s funny to me that I naturally think of pairing the pants with a print now, but that just a year ago, I would have only worn them with a solid.

Pink Purse

For a summery touch of color, I added my pink Rebecca Minkoff MAB bag.

Outfit details: Floral pants old (I like these floral pants), striped tee old (I like this striped tee), Rebecca Minkoff medium MAB bag in rose (I also like the medium MAB bag in pale blush).


Questions:  Do you like florals? If so, what’s your favorite floral piece of clothing? What are you wearing today that you wouldn’t have worn a year ago?

  2. Well, you've just described me in a nutshell Andrea!
    I'd never have put together two prints so obviously before this blogging journey! And it funny how I like it so much now. It just seems more interesting and fun!
    Great look!

    1. Thanks, Leslie! Yes, a year can make a HUGE difference. I wouldn't have chosen the pink purse with the outfit either a year ago... The photos are taken at Santana Row - a local, outdoor shopping mall in San Jose, California.

    1. Thanks, Mica! I love florals & stripes (and florals and polka dots), too. But what's funny is that I have really only been mixing these patterns for about a year... :-)

  23. Andrea, I didn't mix prints a year ago either and now I am the same as you, I almost always pair my florals with stripes or polka dots! I also would have always matched my shoes and belt, but now I never do that either! Great look. And super cute kiddo!

    Thanks for linking up with me. I hope to see you again next Friday. Have a fabulous weekend!

  24. I would never have thought to mix flowers and stripes it looks really great. I can be over monochromatic, something that I need to work on x

    1. Thanks, Alice! I'm so happy with the pants (even though I didn't like them that much for a couple years after I bought them), but sadly they are getting a bit worn, and it's not easy to find a replacement pair...
