pretty in prints {workwear wednesday}

I am absolutely head-over-heels obsessed with cute prints. Funny, cheeky, cute–the more unusual the better. And you probably noticed this if you’re following the blog 🙂 Here’s one of my more recent shirts with the cutest print – seahorses! I get complements on this blouse every time I wear it.

I tend to pair fun prints with a plain bottom, like jeans, but occasionally I love a good print mixing. Here, though, I’ve just got

Look for Less: Pretty in Prints

I love LOVE love floral prints and cardigans. Combine the two and you’ve got a recipe for perfection. But you already knew that. I just had to share a look for less version of this stupendous Talbots Cascading Flower Cardigan. It’s simply stunning. But at $89.00, this pretty flower cardigan is out of my league and makes is a slight sartorial debauchery.

I spied this dress for less floral cardigan over at New York & Company and immediately liked it.

Now, I had written off NY & Co. for a few years now because the quality of their clothes was becoming atrocious, but I’m willing to give them another chance.

I’ll have to go check it out in the store, but at less than $20, this is a fantastic printed cardi that you can throw on over a plain tank and jeans, a solid colored blouse and trousers, or a solid dress (like they have in their picture). At $40, it’s not a terribly bad price but I would wait for a coupon or sale =)

I also saw this floral cardigan at NY & Co. and it also caught my eye. I LOVE how the stylists paired this darker pinkish and purple cardigan with a light pink dress. SEXY!
