5 + 6: Patterned Whites and Double Florals.

I totally meant to have this post ready to go early on Monday morning, before you guys even woke up (since I am on a different time zone) but it has been a weird day. Our weather has been iffy and definitely very unpredictable. I truly hope it gets back to warm and Summery too, since I am going through this remix challenge very much suited for more hot than cool and rainy days, plus usually we don't get Fall here, at least until the second week of October. With some power outages we had, I was able to do some clothes organizing for both Vivian's closet and my own. I put a lot of Vivian's clothes aside that I am trying to sell. She needs a whole new Fall+Winter wardrobe, so hopefully I make a few bucks to get her started on her cold weather wardrobe. With my own closet, I packed away some Summer Dresses, Blouses and Tops. So, finally you get this two-in-one post today. =)

I know I wanted to include a Graphic Floral Tee in my items, since I own a few and I most likely would have included this one. After all this Floral Graphic Tee it is the newest I own (purchased this Summer) and hadn't been worn yet. So first, I paired it with my White+Black Printed Shorts. Then the next day, I paired it with my Floral Midi Skirt (which you already saw in my very last post), not realizing I had worn it just 2 days ago. I reached for that Pretty Skirt again. I must say I like how each Outfit came out. At first I wasn't sure about wearing a Bold Floral Skirt with a Floral-Print Tee, but the Print on this Tee is only on the Front, while the Sleeves and back are plain and solid. This time, I also added by Yellow, Skinny, Bow Belt to the Skirt to bring out the little Yellow from both the Skirt and the Top. Yep, I am seeing now that I also have a ponytail on both Outfits. So I figured titling this post "Patterned Whites and Double Florals" was totally suitable for the Outfits, no? Do you own a Midi, A-line Floral Skirt similar to mine? If not, go get one - I swear it is more versatile than you think. I linked up some Gorgeous options below.
