There’s nothing more spring-like than a pretty floral dress and this year there’s a garden of choices. Take a look at how these three 40+ style bloggers in bloom in botanicals!
Florals pop up every spring but this season ushered in a more moody floral: the dark floral.
Glenda loves the visual arts and was drawn to this fabric blocked peplum top from Zara because it looks like a painting you’d see in a museum. She’s paired it with one of the new tea length skirts for a look that’s lady-like but on the creative side too.
Love the sandals and the clutch. They really polish off the look. Gorgeous Glenda! You can see more of Glenda’s daily dose of fashion at her blog So What To Twenty!
Red Hot Florals
Style blogger Kristin had always thought of florals as fussy and better suited to her aunts and grandmothers. Then she discovered this dress hiding in her closet and decided to style it in a fresh, new way.
Look how adding a pair of edgy Vince Camuto booties and a denim moto jacket adds a whole new vibe to this Asian-inspired, retro-style print dress. Very cool!

If you’re not keen on wearing head-to-toe floral, then try this look from style blogger Janise.
Janise loves white dresses, even though a lot of women would consider white high maintenance. She feels white is definitely worth it for two reasons: it makes her skin glow and it’s the perfect backdrop to create both casual and dressy looks.
For example, a white dress look fabulous when worn with a big colorful statement necklace or with a beautiful scarf like this one above. The punch of color and pattern against the white takes her look from ordinary to extraordinary!
Janise says her style is based largely on her moods and she doesn’t like to place limits when it comes to fashion. Judging by this outfit, she was in a very lady-like mood the day she wore this. She looks so pretty and feminine! You can visit Janise at Mama in Heels.
