    How To Style A Floral Dress In The Spring 

     Madewell floral dress | Coach bag (bought on sale at Macy’s) | BCBG maxazria leather jacket | Ecco oshima ankle strap heels (also seen here) | Topshop studded belt

    I have had this bright and colorful floral dress for years and even styled the dress for fall/winter back in 2010. So I thought it would be fun and appropriate to pull the dress out of the back of my closet and style it for today- the first day of spring! 

    The best way to update the look of an older dress is to add on modern trendy accessories and layers.  I like the idea of creating a balance with a feminine floral dress by adding an edgy cropped leather jacket and studded belt. Together they make the outfit more chic and less girly. Here are a few ways I updated this floral dress. 

    I added the following items:

    1. Cropped leather jacket

    2. Ankle strap heels

    3. Bright colored crossbody bag 

    4. Gold studded black belt

    i absolutely loved the photos and the styling (of course!). I've had my mind on the Coach legacy collection bags too!

    Super chic! Coach bags have made a comeback too bad I sent all of mine to goodwill over 8 years ago! Crazy me!

    How chic! Definitely love the floral mixed with leather – what a great touch! Hopefully, it's not too cold up there still! www.whatjocraves.com

    Gorgeous look and you are so beautiful!
    I love the combination with the leather jacket, it takes away a girly look and gives it more class.
