Would You Wear Dark Floral

Happy Weekend ladies. Yesterday, we went to my husband’s follow up appointment after his lung cancer surgery and are thrilled to get confirmation that his cancer was stage 1, A 3!! Right now, he is cancer-free. There’s no need for radiation or chemotherapy at this time. He now moves to the monitoring stage. Every 6 months they will CT his lungs to be sure cancer hasn’t popped up anywhere else. We are truly blessed and so thankful for all your thoughts and prayers.

Now on to would you wear it. If you’re new here, welcome! Each week my friend Pam and I share a picture of a mannequin and ask if you would wear what it’s modeling. Stores are dressing these mannequins to inspire us to purchase so we love to hear what you think.

dark floral top and pants from LOFT

this outfit is at LOFT

I would love you to share how you might style this look to work for your shape and lifestyle.

Do the colors work for you? How about the proportions?

Please keep your comments personal to your body because some women will love what you don’t.

On Monday’s post, Bea commented that she wished there were more v-neck t-shirt dresses to choose from. I agree because they are the most flattering neckline on me too. I went on a hunt…and ended up ordering a couple:) Here are a few I found-

Now let’s go to Over 50 Feeling 40

and see what Pam’s mannequin is modeling today.

Thanks for reading and remember to wear what makes you feel confident.

    Wonderful news about your husband! I do like the top. It’s kind of got that boho look that I like. The pants, not so much and definitely not with the top.

    What wonderful news for your family! I know you both must be feeling much relieved…
    I recognized this blouse as I have a similar one bought last year at Loft. I like the dark light blouses with fuller long sleeves to wear in the fall and early winter because it is still hot here into early November. I’ll never forget my daughters wedding was Oct. 24th and it was 92 degrees in the Sacramento area.

    Great news about your husband and I hope he stays cancer free.
    This top appeals to me. Even with the long sleeves it looks cool and comfortable. I like to pair a top like this with light-colored pants, but not the ones in the picture unless they were full length.

      I very much like the top and the pants and I like them together. I would wear them. It’s not as hot here as it sounds like it is every where else in the world.

    Colorful florals on a dark background are favorites of mine. I would have to avoid those long sleeves right now, though. Excellent news for your family.

    Wonderful blessed news on your husband’s medical report, Jennifer!! So very happy for you both and your family!!
    As for the top, it would be a bit too much for me unless of course I sprouted 6+ inches in height, upward!
    The print is very attractive and I would really like it in a scarf worn over a solid blouse.
    Enjoy your weekend!!! Xo

    Great news for your family regarding your husband’s cancer free information.
    I like the blouse and pants – not sure I would wear them now. The black background is not an issue with me and I wore a navy background with flowers and light colored pants recently but the top was short sleeved. Looks better than the long sleeves for summer and seemed to be balanced.

    Wonderful news! I like this top, I like florals, the length and neckline and I’m okay with sleeves. But, I probably wouldn’t wear it. The dark color background with the long sleeves make it look more like cool weather (wintery rather than summery) and I’m a pyramid body shape. Wearing a dark color on top and white (or light) on the bottom isn’t flattering and wearing it with a black pant seems like too much black.

    Such wonderful news Jennifer doing a happy dance for you all 🙂 How lovely to hear thanks for sharing. Now onto the post-I like the green trousers but I don’t like the trim at the bottom and I think the top is too shapeless for me overall. I can imagine it looking good on someone with red hair though! Happy weekend and thanks for the tee shirt dresses.

    You know how happy I am for you and your husband! Truly answers to prayers.

    I am currently refining my casual style with a desire to be elegant and I do not believe this speaks that message. So, I would not wear it.

    Hi Jennifer, I am so happy for the news about your husband. Regarding todays look, I love the pants but the top wouldn’t work for me as I am short and small and I think it would overwhelm me.
    I love your posts and read every one you post. How awful that they are being stolen, is there anything you can do about it? I willl definitely make sure my friends and I read them on your site only.
    Have a great weekend.

    Fantastic news about your husband!!!

    I do like this top, however it seems a bit too big for the mannequin. The style is something I would wear, but I would pair the top with green slim pants.

    Stage 1A was what I has 15 years ago when I had my upper right lobe removed and I have been cancer free since. Congratulatulations!

    I’m so happy to hear the good news about your husband!
    I do wear prints with a dark background but this print doesn’t appeal to me. I have a blouse that’s cut just like this one so I know I can wear the style but it’s definitely not my first go-to look. I like the cut of the pants and the trim on the hemline but I don’t like the color. I’d choose a darker color to wear with this top.

    God bless you as you travel this path to restoration. So happy for the results!
    I would wear the top. I have several flowy long sleeve flowered tops. I do wear them with skinny jeans. I would pair this dark one with a darker pant. It just has a better silhouette for me.

    I am beyond thrilled to hear about your husband’s positive surgery results.
    This gives me renewed hope as my husband has surgery for bladder cancer is on Monday.
    We are hoping for the same result.
    Were you allowed in the hospital during your husband’s surgery?
    Due to Covid 19 I am not allowed in the hospital.
    I can only drop off & pick up which I understand but is causing me extra anxiety.
    Thank you for sharing your journey as it gives me hope.

    • Jennifer
      July 11, 2020 / 10:09 pm

      Sending prayers for you and your husband, Kim. I was allowed to wait in the surgical waiting area but had to leave as soon as he was out of surgery. It is so very stressful to be kept away from our loved ones. Especially when they need our support most. There is always hope and he is in the best hands possible. Please keep me posted on how he and you get along. XX

    I like it. I would pick one of the lesser colors in the print, like green, for a combination, just like this example.

  27. Gladys Feliciano
    July 11, 2020 / 8:57 am

    First of all, so happy to hear the good news about your husband!

    The dark floral is right up my alley since I have dark hair and olive skin coloring, not crazy about the style, a little retro for me. The same print in a sleeveless would suit me better.

    I know what it feels like to put your life on hold, waiting for things to get back to normal and get on with living. I’m so happy you can now move on from this.
    I wouldn’t wear them together but I would wear them separately. I’d wear the top with dark washed regular jeans and the top with a watercolor top I have. Im short so I don’t like contrast that much.

  29. JayeL
    July 11, 2020 / 8:56 am

    Yay! So happy to hear the good news about your husband! :0). It’s so wonderful to hear good news these days.

    I really like the blouse on the mannequin, would most definitely wear it but with black skinny or straight jeans, half tucked in front and sleeves pushed up. I have many floral tops, love pattern and color!

    Thanks for your wonderful blog, really enjoy it! Take care!

    So happy for you and your husband – you have so much to celebrate!

    I absolutely love the dark florals and would certainly wear the top. In fact I am drawn to lots of dark prints, paisleys and folkloric designs in particular. They seem a bit more sophisticated and the colors pop on the dark background. Maybe it’s the 60’s calling to me, but I love that moody aura the dark patterns create.

    • Jennifer
      July 11, 2020 / 10:17 pm

      That’s a great way to describe them

    So happy to hear your husband’s great news! Yes, I would wear the dark floral top and the light jeans; in fact I have several similar tops and jeans. I wear these tops with a half tuck to keep them from having too much volume. I don’t wear them in summer because I want short or sleeveless tops in summer.

    A blessing your husband is cancer free. 💕

    I love the top but would try on to be sure the print wasn’t overpowering my petite body.

    Can you find tee shirt or others that are Below the knee dresses? My legs do not look as great as they did when I was in my 20’s or 30’s. 😂 glad I discovered your blog!

    • Jennifer
      July 11, 2020 / 10:36 pm

      There are a few in today’s post but I will be on the lookout for more.

    That is wonderful news about your husband!
    I love that top and would wear it in a heartbeat. However those pants for me are a big NO..no on color and that embroidery at the bottom.
