Electric Blues and Florals

     I try to play with different patterns and prints, but even for me, floral can be difficult to wear.  It is such a bold pattern that it is difficult to wear without making it look like I am trying to draw attention to myself.  I have previously used florals as an accent in a shirt or as an accessory such as a pocket square or scarf, but this is the first time I have used it as the primary piece in an outfit.  In the "Spring Rain" shoot, I did use a floral print sweater, but because it was a washed out print, it wasn't as in your face as this shirt.

     The floral shirt did not have bright colors so it was okay that I paired it with an electric-blue corduroy sport coat.  It sounds weird, but the inspiration for getting this color of sport coat was the women's Celine Electric Blue Mini Luggage that I have seen a couple bloggers and women wear.

     To finish off the outfit, I paired it with a super dark denim to help tone down the busy and bright tops and accessorized the outfit with a large plaid-print handkerchief.
