"Florals for spring? Groundbreaking," said in your best Miranda Priestly voice.
But, seriously, these edgy floral prints feel fresh and new. There's something very alluring about a flower arrangement displaying deep, dark hues, like in the anemones arrangement below. And while summertime is all about keeping it light, an autumnal floral print actually feels fresher and newer than a predictable liberty or optimistic Lilly...no offense, of course.

Not only are edgy florals interesting and unexpected, but they are also practical. Yes, I just said practical on this blog. Come Indian summer and fall, you'll find prints in this colorway easy to wear as the seasons transition. Throw a nubby fisherman's sweater on with the shorts for a day running errands or layer the tank underneath a cashmere cardigan. Pieces like these will creep into your wardrobe time and time again and don't get me started on that fabulous velvet fabric...I can see a beautiful French settee upholstered in this luscious print. Put it up against a white wood plank wall and call the room decorated!
So how do you feel about this mix up in the world of summer prints? Are edgy florals out of place to you or as refreshing as a glass of lemonade on a hot summer day?
