Right now, spring feels how it should; hot enough to forego your sweater during the day, but tricky enough to tug it along in your tote. It's perfect, absolutely perfect. So perfect in fact, that we tugged our own sweaters over to Blush Boutique in Brickell to ask their Chief Operating Officer, Marilyn Sanchez, what she thinks our city's most fashionable gals will be donning this season.
As we all know, Blush is the go-to boutique for many a Miami girl, and with festival season upon us, it's the perfect place to go for an outfit that's easy enough to survive a full day of concerts, but nice enough to pair for a late night out. From floral crowns to neon-infused Aztec ensembles, check our Polyvore board above and click through to see Blush's spring forecast.
Short, flowy dresses: To the person who invented pants, we curse you. Ok, not all the time, but when we imagine wearing these easy-breezy dresses day in and day out, we can't help but let out a sigh of release. "Blush buyers are loving the feel of short, flowy dress," says Sanchez. "Boho chic is super in. Pair this adorable dress with high gladiator sandals.
Neon and Aztec Prints: "Neon and aztec, another perfect combo. A pop of print is always fun," says Marilyn. Infusing Aztec prints with a bit of neon gives this spring staple a super-Miami spin.
Cut Off Shorts: "Cut offs are always a Blush favorite especially now for festival season," says Marilyn. "All you need with the camo shorts is a white cropped tee." The same could apply for the other prints, like the daisy or snake prints, but as for the solids, feel free to go wild with your top.
Floral Crowns: "Festival season calls for floral crowns. We'll be wearing these way too much this season," says Sanchez. If you happened to be at Ultra this year, you can attest to that.
