I think that daisies are popular for lots of reasons – in real life, they’re a great cut flower to buy because they’re generally very inexpensive, last a REALLY long time, and the buds will actually open after you buy them…
For ornamental purposes, they’re simple in design, familiar to almost all of us, and for many people have associations that make us smile…
So if you want to add a daisy or five to your wardrobe, you have options:
If you don’t want the actual daisy – but the “feel” of the daisy, you could wear white with any color in the world (I don’t think I need to show you how to do that!), or you could choose to add a dash of yellow to your wardrobe… (yes, this is indeed the 2nd month in a row that we’ve looked at yellow, but it makes sense; there are LOTS of yellow flowers in the world!)
I’m starting to like the look of yellow with black – break up the bumblebee feeling with a scarf or something else that introduces some other colors if you’re afraid of looking like an insect!
Yellow and navy is SO classic… Every time I work on an outfit like this, I consider (for about 10 seconds!) changing my neutral from black to navy. It will never happen, but I can see the appeal…
I wasn’t sure if the beige pants would work or not, but I’m pretty happy with this outfit – I particularly like that I was able to find faceted earrings that echo the feeling of the scarf…
One often sees yellow accents with grey in menswear – especially in the spring. I think it looks fresh and very unexpected; I love unexpected! (and yes, the wee balls on the ring are a reflection of the wee dots on the scarf – I always enjoy those sorts of synchronicities…)
Yes, the SAME white pants as last month! They’re not inexpensive, but they’re very versatile, and I love them… This outfit looks like a “first really warm day” kind of thing to wear.
And if there was ever a color combination made in nature, it would be yellow and green! For this outfit I thought I’d tone down the yellow a little bit – partly because I was able to find really nice accessories in a soft moss green!
May’s birth flowers are lilies and lily of the valley. I’d better start looking now!
