It's been said that April showers bring May flowers and it certainly seems like there has been enough rain of late to cause plenty of florals to "grow" on everything from Spring purses to tableware.

I simply love flowers, do you? It seems that a well lit bloom can light up any space so perhaps it follows that a floral dress, accessory or piece of home decor can light up any room. Happy Spring shopping, dear readers. 

A lucky find for women who are petite, this Petite length floral shift is marked down to less than $30 online here.

Did someone say "April showers?" Chooka boots at Kohl's are practical and pretty in even the most mercurial of Spring weather. Normally $80, get these for $68 until April 12 only with the code "SpringSave" here

If Spring has a signature scent, surely it is Flower by Kenzo. Uniquely packaged in a bottle embossed with a poppy -- one of my favorite flowers -- this fragrance is sold for $62 to $112 here.

 These handcrafted "Flower Market" pedestal platters from Mackenzie-Childs are just the thing to welcome guests... and Spring. Don't you agree? Get the small platter for $75 here.

Why should women have all the floral fun? I can definitely see my Ultimate Concierge allowing a pair of these Marcoliani floral & stripes socks peek out from underneath his favorite navy blue dress slacks and loafers. Get the for $35 a pair here.

The modern day bouquet! I love this floral iPhone case via Rifle Paper Co. On sale from $40 to $23.80 here.

From the flattering shape to the full sleeves and longer length, I adore everything about this floral dress via ASOS. And the price is right to at just $76; get it online here.


Gucci low-top sneaker with an intricately designed floral embroidery.  This is my way of checking to see if you read to the end of my story, dear readers. (I am smiling!) Get 'em for $695 online here.
