Teen Fashion: Floral Influence

Ever since I was smaller I have always seen flowers used in a romantic way. I would see my dad bring home flowers for my mom on their anniversaries or sometimes my dad will just surprise her with a nice bouquet. I would watch some movies where the guy would always give a girl flowers when trying to get her attention. I think it’s such a sweet gesture because flowers may not cost that much, but it’s the small gestures that shows that the person cares. I look forward to the day when a guy will surprise me with flowers and give me a themed date like Augustus Waters does in the Fault In Our Stars.

The outfit that I’m wearing above consists of a floral dress from Abercrombie. The colors include pastel pinks, blues, yellows, and greens. I wore a green sleeve less cover up that matched the green leaves in the dress. The cover up looked a little loose and bland so I added a pink belt over it. Now some of you may remember these combat boots and DIY boot socks from one of my earlier posts. I wore some very simple stud white flower earrings and for the hands I wore two thin bracelets. One bracelet was a white bow and the other one was a pink infinity sign with a heart.

Flowers are symbolic for multiple things, but the main ones are love, unity, growth, and birth. These words are very powerful to the human language and I find it very suiting how an object of nature as beautiful as flowers get’s the honor of symbolizing them. Flowers are nature’s art, it’s a way of looking at beauty and appreciating the sight.

“Flowers always make people better, happier and more helpful; they are sunshine, food and medicine to the soul”- Luther Burbank

Inspiration Monday: Ranunculus Boutonniere

Inspiration Monday: Ranunculus Boutonniere
This is a picture of a white ranunculus boutonniere. Ranunculus is a really pretty flower that in my opinion looks like a rose.  The reason I chose this picture is because spring recently started and what picture would be better for an Inspiration Monday than flowers. Speaking of spring, it’s even starting to feel like it down here in Georgia! The weather all week is supposed to stay in the 70’s in the evenings and I’ve been able to see some plants starting to sprout once again and more animals are coming out.

The dress is white, just like the bulb of the ranunculus. All of the other jewelry and accessories are green like the stem of the rose. I know what you may be thinking, how come you were able to use so much green without it looking like too much? The reason is because the green is more of a duller green so it doesn’t grab too much attention making it look like too much pop. Also the dress is all white, keeping the dress a simple and neutral color allows you to play with more colors in the accessories.
