Florals! The Good Buy/Good-Bye Book

collage of floral outfits

April’s theme is Florals! Such a happy theme. However you could have read here that it is not a easy theme for me, lol. I wanted a floral dress but can’t find a perfect one. So I will show you some older ones on our blogs, wished I had hung on to those…..that happens when you are such a impulsive person!

Shelbee of Shelbee On the Edge and myself started this series after we had hosted The Bad Buy Book for a year. Now we are ready for a new challenge! Every 15th of the month we show our Good Buy or Good-Bye item. And we want you to join!

What is The Good Buy/Good-Bye Book about?

It is a collage of outfits! You can choose yourself whether you want to show a Good Buy (which is an item you are really exited about) or a Good-Bye ( which is an item you are going to say good bye to). We will keep buying a Bad Buy from now and then, you know, it was so cheap, you were in a hurry and really wanted(needed) to buy something etc. But of course we also have those purchases that can make us so very happy. A piece of clothing that you have had for years and that you also wear a lot. Or something you bought on a holiday, and every time you wear it you get that holiday feeling back. Every month you can choose which item you want to send in. A Good Buy or a Good-Bye. We will provide a theme for each month!

So let’s start with The Good Buy/Good-Bye Book: Florals

First my dear blogging friend and co-host Shelbee of Shelbee on the Edge

floral cowboy boots

These floral cowgirl boots were definitely a Good Buy. I loved them so much that I also bought them in black floral. They are super comfortable and the floral print really makes a statement!

Mireille of Chez Mireille

floral kimono

I love the color of this little Amazon kimono! My favorite way to wear it is over a column of white but here is the way I wore it recently.

Jacqui of MummaBStylish

floral dress in teal

I adore this dress and have had it for years. It’s from Next and has turned out to be a fabulous addition to my collection. It works well casually and also for going out for a nice meal on date night! Here I’ve paired with some suede ankle boots and some statement earrings.

 

Michelle of My Bijou Life

red floral blouse

I’m always a little daunted by red, but this past fall, I decided I needed to add some red to wardrobe. I bought this cute top and just love it!

Rena of Fine Whatever

floral skirt

This skirt was a recent thrift store find. While I adore the abstract floral pattern and the fun, happy pops of color, I haven’t yet decided if I’m going to keep it or list it on Poshmark. Even so, it was absolutely a good buy.

Jodie of Jodie’s Touch of Style

pink jumpsuit

Here is my good buy for the floral theme!!
I just recently purchased this pink jumpsuit from my Fashom box, and I love it!! Even Spookie approves, haha!!! 

Hilda of Over the Hilda

fashion blogger's outfit

This is definitely a good buy. I love the 70s vibe and it is the kind of dress you can wear on fat days. And the print is fun. I love wearing it with boots….

Liz of Closet Play Image

dress with tights

Florals caught me off guard! I have VERY few, only two! One is beyond a good buy. This floral dress was such a fabulous buy that I wear it fall through spring! For the past 5  years!

Ellie of Simply Ellibelle

sleeveless blouse on jeans

This blush pink floral top caught my attention while browsing the LOFT website last spring because I was so drawn to the pretty blush pink and the flower print. While I did originally order the wrong size, I decided the top was so pretty that I exchanged it for the correct size. Needless to say, I hope to keep it in my closet for many years. I just love it!

And finally my floral skirt

spring colors

These are so not my colors and that is why this is a Good-Bye for me. The skirt I mean. It was a pre loved one but is to short for me. Although I adore those gorgeous spring colors!

May’s theme will be: Tulle!

And now hop over to Shelbee’s blog to see what the other fashion bloggers are wearing!

    Your floral skirt is so beautiful and so perfectly styled with the pink blazer! And loving all of the other florals as well, Jodie’s pant suit looks stunning!!
    Not sure I have anything with tulle in the house, but looking forward to seeing everyone’s submissions next month!!

    Oh no, Nancy. It was my full intention to send something in for this one, but I quite forgot!
    Nevertheless, it was a joy to see all these floral delights.
    I’m drooling over Shelbee’s floral cowgirl boots and your skirt is absolutely delightful even if it is a goodbye one for you! xxx

    It’s a shame you didn’t keep that skirt as it is very pretty – but better to have things in your wardrobe in colours you enjoy wearing! 🙂

    I have a few floral pieces in my wardrobe – and one dress very similar to Jacqui’s actually!

    Hope that you are having a good week! Starting to get some autumn weather here at last – nice and cool in the mornings and evenings.

      Do you like the autumn then? We have spring here but it is still so very cold, can’t wait for warmer weather to come!

    Ah, missed it – I waffled too much, as I have the opposite problem of Liz in that I have too MANY floral things (shoes, pants, skirts, dresses, jackets…you name it, I have it in floral). Wonderful outfits on everyone!

    So many fun floral! Now I’m coveting Shelbee’s boots, that darling red peplum top, and your spring skirt! Thank you for including me in your line-up, Nancy! Wishing you a wonderful and spring feeling weekend…

    I am picky about my skirts not being too short, too. I love the colors in that skirt, though and the entire outfit… bright and cheerful! Ohh, tulle sounds like a fun theme for next month!

    So many lovely looks and inspirations for how to wear florals in less than typical ways. The bold colors and bright prints are fabulous.

    Perusing this post was like a walk in the garden. So many pretty florals. So many good buys!! I am print-loving gal. Today I noticed so many of the stores are showing a lot of very neutral solids. Blush, black, cream. I struggled to find a print!! Nothing better than a pretty floral. Hope Rena will keep that skirt! She styled it perfectly and it is adorable on her.
