Subtle Ways Of Bringing Florals Into A Spring Wardrobe

Miss Selfridge Black and Gold Blazer Fashion Blog
Oh you know we're all familiar with The Devil Wears Prada here, right?  And so I won't bore you with how florals are obviously nothing, ahem, 'groundbreaking' for Spring.  But I am going to go on about the themed print just a little.  Okay, more than a little, because I've fallen down the rabbit hole of floral accessories and have absolutely no intention of clambering my way out anytime soon. As much as I love busy floral printed dresses during the warmer months of year (and trust me, you'll be seeing plenty of them here on A Glass Of Ice - as requested!), I'm also loving more subtle ways of bringing the print into Springtime wardrobes.  Needless to say, I've stumbled across floral stilettos while down the floral-accessory themed rabbit hole, but what else?
Unusual Subtle Floral Accessories For Spring
Aldo Stessyf Blue Floral Stiletto Heels
Aldo have brought out something I never knew I was in need of until now: floral stilettos.  It can be more cost-effective to lean towards more simple and versatile heels and yet sometimes, you kind of want to turn your back on that, right?  When it comes to floral accessories, it's truly a case of 'go big, or go home'.  Loud shoes that demand attention with stiletto heels you have to practice walking in each night before going to sleep.  Oh, and don't forget elegant floral scarves in bolder colours you've ever dared to wear.  Am I a vintage-inspired printed scarf kind of girl?  I didn't think so, but hey, I was wrong!  Attach it to a plain bag this season to instantly update the style, wrap it around your wrist for an instant Hermes effect, or continue the trend of tying it around your neck (knot to one side) if you're feeling really brave.  Another subtle way of bringing florals into your wardrobe this season, is to locate a floral box bag, as a nod to the minaudière (mini bag) trend.  Better yet, make like Gucci and opt for a branded belt doused in feminine blooms.  Ooh...

Gosh, I'm so in love with floral accessories.  As I mentioned, you can expect to find plenty of floral prints here on the blog over the next few months - thank goodness for brighter, sunnier days!  I can't wait to hear your thoughts on this look in the comments below. Have you bought any floral accessories recently?  Would you wear these shoes?

  1. Your outfit is super elegant and those stiletto heels are simply fabulous!

  2. These heels are so beautiful, but I still haven´t manage to get practice in walking in them again.

  3. I love this mix, the scarf and heels are so chic mixed with this look !

  4. This scarf is so pretty but the shoes. They are gorgeous! ♥

  5. Love the white jeans and how you styled theme, this is such a cool way to bring spring into your outfit

  6. This outfit is exactly like something I would wear! I'm very much a neutral blazer and jeans girl (I'm actually wearing that right now), but I too have been obsessed with florals recently. The shoes really steal the show but scarf is a beauty too. I have a thing for scarves, love tying them around your next, as a belt, bag handle, etc, so I look forward to checking this one out :)

  7. I love florals, I'd wear them all out - I recently got myself a pretty red dress with white flowers that I can't wait to wear once the sun comes out again. However using florals in little touches is a great idea for more subtle looks. Your stillettos are gorgeous, and so is the scarf on your bag!

  9. This outfit is perfect from head to toe. I do love those floral stilettos. Pairing them with white jeans was such a great way to make them stand out. The black bag is so pretty. I love how you have tied a floral scarf to it. An absolutely stunning way to wear floral print in a subtle way. You look fantastic.

    I'm looking forward to seeing more floral print displayed on your blog as I'm quite keen on this print as well. I love flowers in any shape and form...I even dry flowers myself! Most of embroidery work I done is inspired by flowers. I paint flowers pretty often. So, I'm sure it comes as no surprise that I love floral print.

  10. Oh my gosh, love how you pulled off the floral heels with this outfit. Too perfect.

  11. Those floral heels are beautiful! I'm always a fan of accessorising with scarves, however they are worn, but the heels are my favourite part of this outfit. They would look so good with dresses and skirts too, they'd be perfect with a little black dress! :)

    Glad you're getting some warmer weather. Hope you are having a lovely week so far and you have a fun weekend ahead of you :)

  12. Hehe Ben secretly loves that movie (don't tell him I told you!). And I am DYING over those shoes! My mom and I saw so many floral stilettos when we were shopping in Vegas and I adore the look. She tried on a pair at Jimmy Choo that were amazing except... They were inside a PLASTIC BAG. Google it. I was crying because it was so silly. I'm so on board with a simple floral scarf to spice up a plain white tee! Even though I always go with simple, that makes me feel like I've got myself together!

  13. These shoes are perfection! I don't have that many floral things in my wardrobe, but am in love with your heels here! Such a beautiful look and p.s. how cute are those zodiac pendants? You are a Virgo? That is so cool, all of my best friends are xx


    1. I am indeed a Virgo! Oh that's so sweet - and explains why we get on so well!

  19. Fantastic post dear!
    Enjoy the day :)

  20. These are such fun, flirty touches. I love the idea of including just a small glimpse of spring and summer into a look through florals. It's perfect for transitional weather!

  21. Your shoes are soooo gorgeous! I love how you opted for the elegant blue pieces than the usual pastel floral colors.
    Have a great weekend, Gabrielle!

  22. I definitely find that I need to build in florals gradually rather than going straight on in with the flower power so these are very helpful tips! Floral heels are definitely a new one for me but you know what - I kind of love it!

  33. You knocked this look right out of the park! I love the pops of floral and those pumps are amazing!!

  35. OMG theses stilettos are amazing for spring !
    I love love the flower designer on thoses.
    You look so chic as always !

  36. Floral heels are a definite for spring, and whilst it may be more cost effective and wardrobe-friendly to go for plainer, more versatile heels, going out with some busy floral patterns can really bring character to an outfit. Loving this post, I'm so ready to start brining out the florals.

    Have a great week!
