groundbreaking florals

now i think we all know at this point that florals for spring are not in fact groundbreaking (thank you miranda priestly), but they are inevitable when it comes to transitioning to your spring wardrobe! i always try to do something a little different for my florals and this long sleeved dress was certainly what was missing in my closet. of course i am a sucker for a good sleeve but i loved how this dress had black as the base. i would totally feel comfortable wearing this dress with tights and booties for those days when spring isn't peeking through. 

i love mixing prints and i recently bought this kate spade coat (from the latest collection) with the intention to mix it with various prints! i can totally see myself wearing this with a striped shirt and jeans or even just another floral! this coat is sure to be a staple in my closet this spring!

alright spring - i'm ready for ya! ...just not you summer, you can hang tight.
