Floral Blouses for Spring/Summer

13 May

I tend to wear a lot of solids, and not because I don’t love prints but because I am incredibly picky. To me the perfect print is a balance of soft femininity and artful sophistication.  I hate overly girly, unless paired with something more edgy, and I hate overly bright prints that stand out too much. With that said, here are seven gorgeous floral blouses for spring.
