Spring floral prints…that is our discussion for today.  But, first let me apologize for dropping off the grid for a couple of days…this has been a busy week.  How was your Valentine’s Day?  It is one of those bittersweet says that even as we age can bring on jealousies and feelings of inadequacy.  My husband blessed me with beautiful flowers, perfumes, a card, and a wonderful dinner…but during the day I still felt some pains of jealousy as I watched some co-workers gift other co-workers with candy and flowers.  It is almost a year since I began my new job, but as the older one on the floor, I have not developed the co-worker friendships that others have.  Starting a new job at age 65 is another topic for another day. It did bring back memories of hurtful Valentine’s Days from the past which probably all of us have experienced. Yet, I am blessed to have my family and know I am loved.  I truly do hope someone blessed you with attention yesterday.

Now, back to floral prints.  I have never really been a huge fan of floral prints.  It is one of those fashion trends I have tried several ways to befriend, but for some reason most florals make me feel older and not younger.  I do not know why that is. I will wear a floral print like this lovely one in my new topper from Soft Surroundings.  The muted gentle presentation of the flowers in colors I love  just helps me to be drawn to this cardigan.  I truly do love these shades and the flowers are not over powering.  As the weather warms, I will probably switch to wearing it with a sleeveless tank.  Some office buildings here are overboard with air conditioning, and a knit cardigan can go well into summer in Texas for that reason.  Soft Surroundings has some of the prettiest floral,s so far…I selected several of them below in the slide show.. Beautiful, elegant, feminine designs.

How about you?  Do you like floral prints?  Do you only like them in certain colors?  For those who like them, the flowers are about to grow all over retailer racks, so get ready for a garden this spring.  Bloom Where You Are Planted and……………………………………………………………………



Now, tomorrow is another addition of WOULD YOU WEAR IT, so please plan to join Jennifer and me for some fun!

Of course, the slide show begins with the garment I am wearing……
