David's a Natural Fit for Naturalizer

Recently I had the opportunity to sit in on a Google hangout with David Bromstad on behalf of Naturalizer.  To be honest, while I recognize the brand, I wasn't familiar with it at all and was excited to see the partnership, as I love David's show on HGTV.
In the hangout, David discussed his inspiration for the collection, saying "It’s fun, fresh and feels like summer. The floral painting brings together roses from a New England garden and a tropical hibiscus from Florida. It’s north meets south—an unexpected twist."

 I have always been a sucker for floral prints, even when they were not fashionable for 12 year olds.  I think I read once that florals can be flattering for women that are, lets say, a bit busty, and it has stuck with me ever since.  I typically will try to use them in my accessories instead of my actual clothing so this collection was extremely appealing to me.
After the hangout, I was surprised with a choice of any of the products from the collection. I wasn't asked to review the product or make any posts, I just wanted to share a few of my thoughts.  My eye was immediately drawn to some of the flats, I thought they would be really cute with jeans or to add some fun to my summer dresses.
That said, since I'm currently pregnant and my foot size likes to change on the daily, I decided to go select the Vida purse in tan and gold.
Not exaggerating at all, I have received more compliments on this bag than I have any other accessory that I have in a long, long time.  If I was completely honest, I wish the gold underlay was just the slightest bit more muted, but I adore the shape and all of the interior pockets have proven to be very helpful.  I'm not scared that when Boyfriend asks for something and I tell him, "In my purse, on the side pocket" he will become so frustrated and just hand it to me to find.
 For David Bromstad fans, Naturalizer is hosting a "Win a Day with David" sweepstakes through May 3.  Head on over here, sign up and if you win feel free to let me be your traveling companion!  And for those who are obsessed with animal print, keep an eye out for the fall collection-he hinted that is something we will definitely be seeing in the upcoming release.
