Now that spring is full swing, shoppers at Old City's Franklin Square are ditching regular ol' blue jeans for floral-printed styles. These boldly-patterned, wallet-friendly jeans are among the top-selling items at the Third Street boutique. Those of you who are wary about the trend, take note: Store owner Liz Burt assures us they look good on everybody, and since the jeans range from $38 to $58, it's not too much of a risk.
