Street Style: Early May Showers Bring Mix ‘N’ Match Florals

Given the persistant gray skies lately, it's like every time we look out the office window we think we could be in London (except of course, we've got The Standard East). It's a little dreary. Sure, we share style notes with our friends across the pond, but we'd like to let them have their weather all to themselves. So, in order to invigorate the mood, we've turned our lenses sidewalk-side and found an amazing look thats shocking us back to life. Enter Athanella Paul's layers of floral prints, just the thing to help us avoid electrotherapy. The Hawaiian skirt may be a difficult piece to match, so Athanella nailed it by mis-matching (or weirdly matching) to perfection. The windblown hair and the spikey white shoes (yes even with tights!) all work well together in an accidentally-chic type of way that everyone's always trying to get right. Though we wish we could have gotten a better look at that black boxy handbag, given her statement necklace and confident stance, we'll just go ahead and assume it's awesome, too.
