I used to love shopping for vintage, floral blouses at thrift stores in high school. Fast forward to today, I still can't get enough of their romantic, grandma-chic vibes. But I know what you're thinking. Florals - Groundbreaking, right? But I have a whole new outlook on florals and femininity. They both seem stronger than ever to me. Which is exactly why this is the most recent bag that I splurged on.

It was a splurge, and you might think that investing in a bag that seems so "trendy" or "seasonal" (at first glance) isn't practical. But Gucci was known for it's florals in the '60's! I even discovered recently that my grandmas has a set of coffee cups with the iconic, first floral print on them. So when the new and limited edition Blooms print was released, now 50 years later, I knew I had to be a part of it.

And as if this post couldn't get any more florals-obsessed, I'm also loving the new Jo Malone London fragrance, "Nashi," inspired by the Nashi flower. If you're in the area, you can visit the new store at CityCenterDC to smell it yourself. Florals are definitely no longer a spring-fling. Whether it's in a floral cologne, handbag, or silky blouse, they're here to stay!
