Street Beat: Chicago edition, Flower Power



Hey all you Divas, this thrifty fashionista is just back from a whirlwind of a trip to one of my favoritest cities in the whole wide world: Chicago.

If colorful hot dogs, Mafia legends and Oprah aren't enough to make this city a gem, consider this: they have perhaps the biggest, coolest Forever 21 store on the planet?! At 40,000 square feet and three floors, this Michigan Avenue cornerstone is like a mall unto itself.

What's more, it is one of the best places to scope out style mavens. I spotted more than few while there, and honey, you heard it here first: the girls are all about florals this summer. I saw tons of chicas sporting daisies and pansies in colorful splendor. I couldn't help but share. So check these ladies out and be inspired!

Vintage Hannah Elaine, 25, a photographer form Nashville.

Flower Power: An apron cut dress with a country medley of flowers.

Her style: "Vintage"

What I like: Hannah has the complete look. The boots, bright bag and funky owl necklace scream country girl gone glam.

Classy_2 Ramsina Youmara, 15, a high school student from Chicago.

Flower Power: Abstract holly buds and petals.

Her style: "Classy"

What I like: This is perhaps the perfect shopping day get-up. It's comfy and easy to get in and out of if you're trying on a ton of clothes.

Redhead Emily Cucherman, 18, a student at University of Southern Mississippi.

Flower Power: A chiffon floral peasant top with tiny colorful buds.

Her style: "Boho chic"

What I like: Emily is a study in effortless style. It doesn't look planned, yet she's completely put together with matching leather sandals and bag.
