'Suffer Them Now and They'll O'er Grow the Garden'

I LOVE this floral blouse from Zara. The colors are so vibrant and I love how it pops even more against the black background! Great in the winter, PERFECT in the Spring! 

Since the floral pattern varied on each of these blouses, I went to at least 4 stores to find the perfect mixture of fuchsia and orange on a size Medium (yeah, I'm a bit nuts like that). Didn't find the exact pattern that I had previously spotted on an XL (it had gorgeous amounts of fuchsia on it) so I settled for this one. I love it nonetheless!

And a huge thank you to Taylor for taking these shots of me :) You were a lifesaver!!
