    We know what you're thinking: Florals for spring, how revolutionary. [Insert eye roll here.] But even while shelves are filling up with ditsy-printed duds and flowery frocks — all a little bit too precious for our tastes — you actually can join the garden party without revisiting your Pre-K days. How? By giving those floral prints a heavy dose of preppy flair.
