Top 5 of the week: floral blouses

6

I prefer fall florals to spring and summer ones—they just seem more textured and interesting to me, and they’re easier to mix with the dark-skewing items in my closet. This one from Allsaints has such a lovely, antique-y feel.

There are ruffles here, yes, but I still find myself liking this one.

How gorgeous is this Liberty of London shirt? The color combination is just so perfect, and desperately chic too.

Here’s one that you could easily mix with autumnal hues now, and more summery ones later.

This yellow is maybe more suited to summer, but it’ll mix surprisingly well with your navys and army greens.

    Despite the fact that I don’t normally like florals or ruffles, I keep coming back to the Faherty blouse. Sadly, there’s only one left on the Nordstrom site, not in my size.

    They are all pretty. I hate ruffles but what’s worse are those two strings that hang down from the neck on so many blouses. Do people actually tie them? I end up tucking them in the shirt. The ruffle/hanging string combo has been my enemy for some time now…

      We have a murderous kitten (I wanted to name her, Murder–but my niece wasn’t keen) who will fly through the air to grab any string-like clothing appendages. She also likes sweatpants’ ties, and I have photos of her leaping and attaching herself to my crotch by her wretched razor claws.

      I have some tops where I tie the strings in a single knot because I like the way it changes the shape of the neckline. It’s also generally an easy fix with a small pair of sharp scissors.

    Love the Sezanne. I think the cotton/silk combo would feel like butter. Does anyone know how they run?

      Ditto, and I liked several of the other print options there too. I hadn’t really been thinking about florals, but this is quite a lovely post – thanks, Kim!
