as everyone has probably noticed by now, have been big a big trend for this spring and summer. in my mind ghesquire really kicked things off at balenciaga- though luella showed a smattering of floral on her spring/summer runway as well.

the look has quickly spread down to the street, where both large graphic prints a la balenciaga and the luella-like smaller prints have been well represented. above are two skirts from f21 representing the two main takes on the trend.

while f21 is pretty darn cheap (19.80), i still think i can do better. I'm heading to the fabric store this afternoon in hopes of buying some fabric and making my own skirt. I haven't decided which type of floral pattern i'll get as i can imagine both meshing well with my wardrobe. The smaller 90's floral pattern i could pair with white tank tops and pastel cardigans, and a light-wash jean jacket. On the flipside i could imagine a bold big print pairing well with a bright orange cardigan. either way i see myself getting a lot of use out of it!

edit: sorry the image is blurry- still trying to get a hang of things
