As the spring chill finally gives way to summer warmth, we’re partnering with our favorite style bloggers to show us how they wear the season’s hottest trends. From fashion tips to makeup trends to home décor, we’re excited to see how these fashionistas gear up their wardrobes for warm weather styles.
This week we’re welcoming Liz of With Wonder and Whimsy to share her favorite ways to style this season’s must-have pattern: floral.
Nothing says springtime like florals! Just like fresh flowers, floral prints can help breathe new life into your wardrobe and home décor for spring and summer. I’m always looking for easy, affordable ways to refresh my style for the changing seasons, so I made a trip to my local Meijer store to shop around.
Floral is the print of spring, and Meijer has options ranging from trendy dresses and tops to plush pillows and bedding. I picked up some cute new pieces and love how these fresh floral prints bring such color, romance and whimsy to my wardrobe and home. A flirty dress and floral blanket set the perfect scene for a charming spring picnic in the park! Here’s a look at some of my favorite Meijer picks for celebrating the colorful and fragrant beauty of spring.
A Floral Dress
A floral dress is a spring and summer staple, and Meijer has a large selection in a range of styles and prints. I’d recently heard about their #StyleForEveryBody campaign with offerings in a full range of sizes from S-3X. It is so refreshing to see every size featured on the same rack.
Plus-size women know the frustration of seeing a garment they love, rushing over to check for their size and finding it’s either not available or they have to shop in a separate department with an inevitably smaller selection. And when so many of those plus-size departments are stocked with boring neutrals and uninspired basics, the variety of trendy options and floral prints at Meijer is exciting and welcoming.
I tried on a number of styles ranging from embroidered swing dresses to tropical print maxis but fell in love with this faux wrap dress. The print has a romantic Victorian-era feel in shades of blush pink and plum. It’s such a sweet dress in the softest velvety knit fabric.
I layered an ivory cami underneath and was pleased to see that Meijer has layering basics like this in a variety of colors that coordinate with their seasonal styles.
Fresh & Pretty Accessories
Meijer has some super cute sandals with flower embellishments, but I had to have these girly-meets-sporty tennis shoes in floral lace. These tennies are such a great find because they’re practical and casual for a picnic outdoors but still really trendy and cute.
I finished my look with this quilted cross-body bag in rosy pink and personalized it with this macaroon charm. I like that you can mix-and-match their purses and charms to customize your bag and make it your own.
I also picked up a bedding set in the loveliest watercolor floral. The comforter and pillow cases are two-sided with periwinkle polka dots on one side and a dreamy floral print on the other. It’s the perfect combination of romantic and whimsical, playful and serene.
This plush furry pillow is a fun addition, and it’s a style I can swap between my bedroom and living room décor. Since I like to change up my bedding every few weeks, this comforter will make the most stylish picnic blanket when not in use. The floral print and ruffle trim definitely set the mood for a sweet and romantic afternoon in the park.
I love wearing and decorating with prints, and florals are my absolute favorite. They bring instant romance and freshness, and they’re a simple way to celebrate this beautiful season!
