[Editor's note: This adorable trend reminds me so much of the 90's it hurts ...but in a good way. Floral print Docs?!?! I had them! Its return lends itself to the younger generation but I found certain pieces (like this vintage floral print skirt) bridge the generation/trend gap - Maegan Tintari | Style Editor] ...more
