My name is Marion and I produce a style blog called Marionberry Style. I was so excited when Hanna asked me to produce a post for when she is off running her half marathon (Go Hanna!!).
Since my blog is all about current trends and mixing inexpensive finds with investment pieces, I thought I would pull together a style that incorporates one of Spring 2012's hottest trend: floral prints.
But yes...it's still winter. Especially here in Denver!
So I am holding back on throwing on the pinks and pastel floral print in favor of darker hues.
I found this skirt for $9 at Nordstrom Rack. It has pockets. For these two reasons I did a little happy dance in the aisle (insert husband eye-rolling here).
To make this look season appropriate, I paired the floral skirt with cozy sweater tights, booties and a cashmere top. I felt like I was wearing pajamas
(except for the whole 4-inch heel part).
Skirt - Lily White
Cashmere Sweater - Moda International

So embrace the Spring's floral trend a little early! Just be sure to keep the color scheme a little on the darker side, at least until mother nature starts to give us the thumbs up to break out the pinks and peaches.

Thanks Hanna so much for having me!! Can't wait to hear about your race.
