Spring Trends | Fresh Florals in Blue

I don’t know about you but I’m insanely happy that floral prints are back in a big way for spring.  They really look fresh when paired up with everything from stripes to polka dots and denim to dresses.

There also seems to be a trend toward florals in shades of blue for spring.  From robin’s egg to cobalt, blue backgrounds are great for showcasing the pretty reds, pinks and yellows in this season’s flowery frocks.

Here are some pretty pieces perfect for spring.

    Love your blog, Alison! Any suggestions for ideas on what a 30-something girl might wear to an outdoor wedding in late Ohio?? It may be cold… Thanks! 🙂

  • i can’t seem to get enough florals lately. loving all of the dresses you picked!!


  • A good floral makes me happy- and definitely in the mood for spring! 🙂


  • Goodness! I just love florals! This post made me so happy :).

  • I can’t even pick my favorite! I am so picky about florals, but these I adore! The light blue backgrounds are so spring-y!

  • The blue florals are sooooooooooo pretty!

  • I am not a huge floral fan and I know it is a huge trend for spring
    I am hoping it will grow on me by the time the warm weather actually decided to stick around

  • Uber pretty pieces……the blue background makes the florals a bit chic & moody!


  • Honestly, I’ve always thought floral was kinda grandma-ey (though I totally love my grandmas!), but with the right design and styling it can be super chic. But I am always wary when it comes to florals!

  • Those floral flip flops have my name written all over them! Hurry up spring!!!

  • I am loving florals this year Alison! These blue selections are just so feminine! I bought a pair of mint floral shoes at Target recently and love them! Now if we can get it to stop snowing!! My new link up is live Friday with Ginny of My New Favorite Outfit! Stop by and link up something charming(: This would be perfect! Susan

  • I love those florals with a minty blue background – keeps it from being to girls, but still so lovely!

  • I am a crazy floral lady, florals are my passion, so this is so right for me. The marcie dress has a very pretty color.

  • I think I’m finally okay with florals… if the background is right. A dark blue or a black will be my choice.

    Not happy about this floral print thing coming back! EEK!!! NO. I work at a college campus so see lots of girls wearing this pattern right now. It reminds me of an embarrassing time in my life when I made questionable fashion choices (the 90s!). GAH.

    I really like the florals and it’s on my to get list, but still figuring out what and how. Love dresses and shoes, but not sure about tops and skirts.
