Relaxed Floral

If you follow me on Instagram (@shannasaidso), you know I can sometimes get a little carried away with "outfit of the day" selfies. I am here to say that I am #sorryimnotsorry for posting what I wear every other day or so. I think it's fun to share fashion and ping pong ideas off of one another. I know that I have gotten some serious fashion inspiration from other people that I follow.

For the past few weeks or so, I have taken a handful of said Instagram outfit selfies and created a style board from what I wore on a particular day. I have gotten some genuine feedback, so I will continue to do these posts to help inspire other women with their style and wardrobe.

I sincerely hope you enjoy these posts as much as I do writing and creating them.

So, let's get to styling, shopping and playing virtual dress up!

What I posted on Instagram:

And here is an almost exact repeat of the look I wore:

Relaxed Floral
                                 Top | Leggings | Flats | Tote | Necklace | Earrings

This floral top from ModCloth is hands down one of my favorites as you can see here and here. Nope, not getting paid from ModCloth to say this. It's my free willed opinion. It's long enough for leggings, casual enough for shorts and can be paired with a skirt for work.

Something that did get sent to me was the Giando Massi striped tote. I have carried it on styling appointments, travel excursions and for simple everyday use. The fabric and leather is worth every single cent. 

So, there ya have it. A little of this and a little of that for a relaxed floral spring look. 

What are some of your favorite pieces that you have been wearing non-stop as of late?

I really like your spring-ish look, honey! Especially those flats. But it hasn't been warm enough here to wear those, so I'm constantly in sneakers unfortunately.:)

Shanna! I am way bummed! My FB account is all fouled up and I can't go there and vote. Urgh! Hopefully, it will get ironed out. I was hacked and FB doesn't believe me. Have you ever had to communicate with them? Oh, I hope not. I wouldn't wish that experience on my worst bad guy ! I sure hope you can get more votes.

Ashley said...
