Outfit Of The Yesterday: A Flower Shower (+ A Mix Of Floral Dresses & Moto Jackets)

♫:  Q.U.E.E.N. – Janelle Monae feat Erykah Badu

Style is all about (in my opinion) evolving and changing, and while I will always be a super sucker for super feminine details (lace! bows! silk blouses! poofy skirts!), I have been trying to add a few edgier pieces into my wardrobe this year–to make sure my wardrobe remains age-appropriate.

One of my favorite combos at the moment is pairing my floral dresses with moto jackets. It’s an easy way to transform dress that is a little too ‘darling’ into something a little more grown-up and fierce. Below are a few of my favorite moto jacket + dress combos. Click on any of the pictures to shop & see the full product information!

    I am totally in love with the asian theme Zara’s got going on this season. Have you seen their kimono jackets? I’ve been contemplating a splurge on them very heavily.

    Maybe I tend to go a bit too girly, but I often will just wear a floral dress on its own (like in my most recent blog post, not to plug too much). But sometimes for work a nice blazer can tone it down just enough to be professional.

    I’m completely with you on this one! Floral skirts and moto jackets, yes! The only problem is, I never seem to get the perfect weather to allow for both at the same time, boo :(

    The shoes! They are definitely my favorite part :) I love this look on you and others, but I feel so uncomfortable in leather/moto jackets. It just doesn’t feel right on me for some reason. But I love pairing blazers and other little jackets with florals to complete the look.

    • Thanks so much Noelle! I think you could totally rock a moto jacket, but (of course) you have to feel comfortable in it first. So I definitely understand. Plus, you look great in blazers too–so you’re not really missing out on anything, I promise. ;) <3

  • Completely agree with you – I have really been trying to add some “edgier” pieces into my wardrobe too to balance out all the girly and preppy things I already own. LOVE the floral dress + moto jacket combination…will definitely have to try this :)

    • Thanks Kim! It’s hard, isn’t it? Sometimes I wish I were back in school, because it was much easier to stay ‘current’ and up on trends when I was surrounded daily by it (and had all the time in the world to devote to it, too!). It’s waaay too easy as an adult to get stuck in a fashion/hair/make-up rut, uff da.

  • What an awesome print..I love the little butterflies!

    • Thanks so much Tara! Me too. I will always secretly love butterflies no matter how much that Mariah Carey lady has tried to soil their reputations.

  • Love all of it, Chloe! I am a big fan of girly dresses with leather jackets. You look gorgeous!

    What is the fit like on your ZARA dress? I can usually make their dresses work if they run small, but it’s always hard to tell if that’s the case!

    • Thanks so much, Tam! This dress is definitely big with an extremely relaxed fit–I’m wearing a small, and I have to have a bandeau bra layered on underneath lest I want everyone seeing some side boob. Maybe belting it up (with a skinny black belt as to not detract from the print) could work? *Maybe*.
