For a breezy yet sunny summer day, I enjoy wearing long sleeves with shorts, especially in San Francisco where your legs heat up from walking up all the steep hills! This outfit is colorful & playful yet sophisticated & not over the top. I love the contrast of a flouncy blouse paired with tailored shorts.

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.
