Polka-Dots & Stripes!

Flourish style is a mix of elements: a little bit girly, a little bit classic, and a little bit of pushing the fashion envelope all at the same time.  One of the best ways to capture all the elements of this style is in bold patterns like stripes and polka-dots!  So of course, our summer collection is laden with gorgeous striped tops, polka-dot dresses, etc!  Here's a few of our favorites:

Striped patterns can give your outfit a preppy feel, a nautical feel, or just a bold look altogether.  A great way to make your striped fashions really pop, is to add a bold contrasting color.  So for example if you have a navy and white striped skirt,  then add a solid red top.  Or, if you have a black and white striped maxi dress, consider adding a pop of pink with some fuchsia heels or a bag!  Really, the options are endless. Here are just a few striped pieces for summer from Flourish....

Our Partial to Preppy Tee, is the perfect, comfy summer staple.  Wear it with jeans or shorts, or even tucked into a pencil skirt for the office.  Any way you have it, this little striped t-shirt will make you happy and comfy at the same time! Click here to scoop it up now!

If you're looking for a super fashion forward look and want to get that Blogger or Pinterest style, our knee-length Bow-rn To Be Stylish Skirt is perfect.  We love the bow detail at the waistline, the black and white stripes, the longer length, and the high quality fabric is to die for!  We paired it with a dramatic but classic black top, but you could opt for that contrasting pop of color instead if you prefer.  Click here to put this beauty in your shopping cart!

June Style

Happy June 1st!  Here in chilly South Bend, Indiana it doesn't feel much like summer... but we Flourish Girls are hoping that since it is officially June now, the warm weather HAS to follow right behind!  (Positive thinking never hurt anyone, right?!)  One of the best things about hot summer days, is the cute fashion you get to wear!  Below are some cute and affordable ideas for when the temps are high and you need to keep cool without sacrificing your style!

Rompers are a great way to keep cool but still look super stylish all summer long.  They can slip right over your swimsuit or be dressed up for a date night with a little jewelry and some cute wedges: either way if you chose the right fabrics and styles you can stay cool and comfy!

Our Vertical Jump Romper is a perfect example: the fabric is silky smooth and the sleeveless style makes this stylish romper the perfect choice for even the hottest of summer days!  Click here to shop this cute style now!

Another ideal option for steamy June days is our Daisy Chain Romper.  This all white style features tiny straps with little embroidered daisy motifs, and the light fabric and white color will keep you feeling breezy and beautiful even while you're out in the sun!  Click here to grab this hot seller before it's gone forever!

Maxi Dresses
Another summer friendly style option is the maxi dress!  These all in one pieces are so easy to make outfits with: no need to pick out coordinating separates when you opt for a maxi-dress!  Many come in sleeveless versions with light, breathable fabrics, making them the perfect solutions to sticky hot summer days.  

Our Teal the Show Maxi Dress is a perfect summer ready maxi dress.  With it's puckered strapless style you could pull this on up over your bikini and wear with sandals while browsing around beach front towns.  But if you're headed to a wedding or dressier event, stay cool but look fabulous when you add sparkling jewelry, a clutch bag, and heels to this lace accented dress.  Click here to add this to your shopping cart!

Crop Tops
Another summer friendly fashion, making a huge comeback is the crop top.  Whether you pair it with high waisted cut offs or a long maxi skirt, the crop top is an ideal option for hot summer days.  It's cute and casual but keeps unneeded hot fabric at a minimum at the same time.  Best for pool/beach days or concerts and festivals, cute crop tops are a new favorite at Flourish Boutique.

Our Just a Spot Crop Top is light weight and adorable for summer fashion.  Click here to grab one in your size now!

Get the look for less: Celebrities

One of our favorite blog topics is Get The Looks For Less, because how can you not love getting a celebrity style outfit for an affordable price?!  For today's blog post we found some gorgeous celebrities that are wearing similar items to Flourish styles, so here's the scoop on how to get their looks for less!

Ahhh, we're dying over how cute these jumpsuits on Nina Dobrev, Scarlett Johansson, and Julia Roberts are! As bright pink is one of the hottest colors for summer 2015, you can't go wrong with a long all pink jumpsuit!  And while you'll look nothing short of fabulous, when you wear a stylish and sleek jumpsuit, who can afford the designer price tag?!  Good news!  We have one just like these at Flourish!  The bold hot pink of our jumpsuit will still make you stand out like a star and no one needs to know you got it for a steal!  To complete your look, add a statement necklace and sandals!

Red is a color known for royalty and celebrities....and nothing looks more hollywood glam than a long all red dress.  The elegant style of Selena Gomez's red maxi dress makes this a perfect choice for special events this summer.  But let's be real.... most of us can't afford the runway price tag this dress probably came with.  Never fear!  Flourish can help you nail Selena's look for a fraction of the price.  In fact, we have a stunning long red maxi dress in stock right now.  Simply add dramatic jewelry, a clutch bag, and heels to complete the dramatic look.

Stripes, stripes, stripes! We love a good classy striped dress!  Wouldn't you love to get the same look as Taylor's nautical striped dress, but for an affordable price!? Well you're in luck, because we have a very similar dress, for the price point you are looking for!  Score Taylor's look without breaking the bank!
