Tribal Gardens - Friday Fashion Finds

One of my favorite trends for Spring this year is mixing up fun outfits with tribal, ethnic and floral patterns. Check out these fun pairings from Vogue's most wanted article - I just LOVE the pink and oranges together!

But how do you do this without looking like a clown? I think it's really about playing up bright and fun accessories like purses, shoes and (of course) lovely scarves, while keeping the rest of your outfit toned down with clean, bright whites, tans, etc..

Here are today's Friday Fashion Finds ~ a medley of fantastic floral and tribal treasures from Etsy plucked to share with you and get excited for Spring!

I'm in love with every one of these delicious pieces, so much that I just have to gush a little here.. not to mention give you the links so you can check them out for yourself ;)

This necklace is beyond awesome statement piece! I love the tiny pieces that have been packed into each "tooth" and can almost hear the drums beating in the background. It automatically adds that goddess like, tribal touch to any outfit. Wear with a floral dress, plain T shirt with jeans, and add in some colorful shoes and purse.

How cool is this skirt? Super luxurious made out of silk and so simple, this can just go with anything! Add a solid color top, pretty scarf and white sandals to give that lovely, casual Spring look. Toss in an ethnic purse to pull it all together.

I love these shoes!! The colors are so happy and they just look so comfy. Perrfect to toss on with a white/tan dress, jeans, or shorts and a T. Don't forget your pink floral ring or orange scarf to play up this whole tribal/floral trend.

HOT HOT HOT! These babies can be worn with anything or anywhere and are just hands down, fantastic! Wear these python snakeskin shades with a floral dress, and right there you are ready to greet Spring in style.

This ring is so great! Love the vintage pink petals and the spikey gold fronds poking out really add a little tribal flavor to it! This is the ultimate cocktail ring, but could really be worn with anything for a pretty, Spring accent. It's so unique, in fact, the more I look at it, the more I want it!

Hand painted on silk crepe de chine, this lovely scarf has the bold pinks and oranges for Spring and Summer, and dresses up any outfit. The deco floral fits right in with our Tribal Garden theme, and when it gets too hot, just wrap it up on your purse handle for that extra POP of color!

This hand woven, hemp bag makes me want to pack my toothbrush, a book, and head out on an adventuresome road trip. Super cool naturals and reds are so yummy together. Take it anywhere - the farmers market, shopping, or like I said, on a fun adventure!

This is definitely a must-have basic for your Spring/Summer wardrobe. So chic and simple, yet sylish - this feminine jumpsuit can be styled so many ways. I would wear with a tan belt, boots, floral scarf and tribal tote - how about you?

So cute! An elegant and adorably petite ethnic handbag to add that little something wild to your outfit, while keeping it red, brown and tonal. Wear with tans, whites, and some fun tribal/floral jewelry.

Perfect shoes for Spring! These classic, gladiator sandals say,"take me to the beach, and then shopping, and then for a nap in a hammock. Oh, and by the way, I'll take a Mojito on the side." Well, that is what they said to ME anyway :)

11. Ethnic/Tribal tote with pom poms by Dazzlinglanna
Hot mamma! This gorgeous embroidery and hot, lively colors are irresistable in this fantastic tote (comes complete with a Hmong baby carrier!). What could be better to add a splash of floral hues to your Spring outfit?

Soft, sheer, and romantic, this watercolor bloom silk georgette scarf immediately dresses up your look. Great for adding that little sunshine orange for Sunday brunches or dinner date.

Super glam and gorgeous, these snakeskin bangles have just enough shine and bring immediate style and attitude to toughen up your floral wardrobe. They are so sexy!

Ultra feminine and super sweet, wear this 80s vintage skirt with a white tank, sandles and fun ikat purse for a carefree stroll in our Tribal Garden. I love the happy-go-lucky colors and can just see it swaying from side to side while enjoying a Spring Day.
