Winter Florals // Edgy

By Styleofsam @styleofsam
Happy Monday!  We're back in Texas, and I'm getting ready to head to New York tomorrow!!    IFB Conference, Fashion Week, and Family here I come!
This is a two part post because I'm showing you the sassy and then the sweet way to wear winter florals.  A lot of y'all know that I'm somewhat of a girlie girl and LOVE hearts, bows, flowers, and such.  Well, sometimes a girlie girl wants to feel like a kick a$$ rocker when wearing an ultra feminine summer dress right?!Winter Florals // EdgyWinter Florals // EdgyWinter Florals // EdgyStyle of Sam, JCrew Ella dress, Elizabeth and James leather blazer, Bottega Venetta suede booties,  Karen Walker number one sunglasses, Chanel soft and chain flap, Tom Ford aphrodisiac lipstick, outrage fashion emerald necklaceerin necklace thanks to OUTRAGE FASHION // ella dress JCREW {similar} //

And why not wear bright florals in the winter!  Remember those J.Crew summer dresses that I got on sale awhile back {seen here and here}?  I told you I would them later.  Today's ensemble is a little bit edgy - whoa, gettin' kinda crazy here!  {Don't worry, Part II is the girlie version!}  Whenever I want to toughen up a look, I alway think leather + booties.  Is that too cliche?
The Style Rx:  Pair a leather jacket, tights, and booties with a summer dress to winterize it.  Bonus points if you walk around with some attitude to sell the bad a$$ look! Ha!
*My cousin found that Elizabeth & James blazer at TJ Maxx and nabbed it for me on clearance! The booties were found on sale at Last Call!

P.S.  Don't you love Mary's style?  Hope you had a chance to check out her blog over the weekend!
P.P.S.  I'll be posting a recap of IFB Conference and Fashion Week events next week, but you can follow my adventures through facebook, twitter, or instagram!
Full Disclosure:  The erin necklace was sent to me complimentary of Outrage Fashion.  In my usual fashion, I chose the outfit around the necklace!  Hey, emerald IS the pantone color of the year!
