Muted and Moody

Happy Saturday, everyone!!  Hope your weekend is off to a magnificent start.

When spring hits, your mind goes towards colorful blooms, but this spring, flowers are taking a decidedly darker turn.  Moody floral prints are a big trend this spring, which is great to me because it's definitely my favorite way to do floral. 

Today, I'm featuring a recent work look that includes a moody floral print. 
Blouse:  The Limited (old)
Blazer:  The Limited (Sold out on-line; see here)
Pants:  The Limited (Sold out on-line; may be available in stores)

I've had this top for several years, but I haven't worn it in a long time because it was too long.  For some reason I thought it couldn't be hemmed due to a side zipper, but I was proven otherwise.  I love how the flowers look like they were drawn with charcoals.

The slightly somber feel of the floral inspired me to keep a muted color palette, mixing ivory, black, grey, and pale blue. 

As muted as this outfit is, there's still a lot going on - colorblocked pants, floral print, satin top, and a soft pop of color.
Heels:  Target (Similar here)
Bracelet:  Ixora Boutique (Available here)
I decided to keep jewelry minimal with this look, opting only for a singular silver mesh bracelet from Ixora Boutique.  I love the simple design of this piece - it looks great on its own, but it would also look amazing stacked with other bracelets.
Tote:  New York & Company
Are you a fan of dark floral prints?

  1. Thanks you so much! These are actually pants, which means I can wear them to work! :-)

  2. I think dark florals are pretty, I own a few black and white floral prints and i think they are just as pretty as the colorful ones. But yeah I like how you kept the palette of your outfit muted its really goes well all together. :)


  3. Thanks so much Nina! I wear a lot of color, but it always comes back to black and white - my favorites!!!

  4. I think this top looks wonderful. Paired with this muted blue blazer, it is a great top look. Stylish pumps to go with these colorblock pants.


  5. Love the top, and I think continuing the monochromatic palette throughout was a great idea :)
