*In this late-night feature – which will run on Tuesday and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*
Amy requested a few picks for dark floral prints, so here we go:
Land’s End Ponte Sheath Dress – was $79, now $55.30
with code FORFRIEND, pin 1500
This ponte sheath is a Land’s End standby that’s both comfortable and flattering. Love the diagonal pockets and gorgeous abstract floral print. Also comes in a multicolor tweed print and burgundy floral. Available in sizes 0 -18, as well as petite, plus, and tall sizes. LE has quite a few dark florals including this sweater and this flocked ponte dress.
Talbots Washable Silk Pintuck Blouse – was $129, now $90.30
Oh, how I love washable silk. And this rich, dark print features both blossoms and peacocks. Looks lovely with jeans, but would dress up beautifully with an olive pencil skirt or forest green slacks. Available in sizes 2 – 20, as well as petite and plus sizes.
New York & Co Scuba Circle Skirt – was $49.95, now $29.97
What a stellar skirt – that large-scale botanical is simply gorgeous. And don’t fear the scuba: It takes some getting used to, texturally speaking, but it’s soft, relatively wrinkle-resistant, and pleasingly thick. Available in sizes XS – XL, sold out in L. If you’re more of a pencil skirt gal, try this NY & Co dark floral pencil skirt instead. This similar skirt has a mesh inset (wear a black slip underneath if it feels too revealing) but is also a dark floral in scuba and comes in sizes 12 – 28.
Loft Floral Ballet Neck Tee – was $29.50, now $15
100% cotton in a navy-background floral that will look fresh and fun all winter long. I’d pair this with a richer green olive than shown, light gray, or even dark denim. Available in sizes XS – XL, as well as petite sizes. This floral is a similar scale and available in sizes 1X – 3X.
Old Navy Floral Gauze Scarf – was $16.94, now $12
Can’t resist throwing this one into the mix. Pull out the teal in that print or pair this scarf with burgundy, navy, or charcoal. There’s also a white-on-black floral (the ultimate in dark florals), cobalt, flame orange, or pink on white.
