Another trend I’m loving this season, which has carried over from last year: loud tropical prints that really pack a punch. Whether you’re vacationing at a resort in Maui or having your own getaway in your backyard, tropical motifs like these are sure to make you feel like you’re on your own private island sipping Mai Tais. Don’t be afraid to trade in your soft romantic florals for prints in bright colors. To avoid looking like a tourist, play around with mixing in some contrasting patterns like stripes and woven accessories (floppy sun hats, necklaces, bags, espadrilles).  Hurry up summer!

    You are so lovely, and this outfit is FUN! I love the colors and pattern mixing, it’s bold but still classy.

    I have those wedges and I left them at home but now I wish I snatched them to bring to Pittsburgh! You are my shoe soul mate. And I am loving your skirt! With the wedges and the hat and the stripes, this outfit is perfect and looks so comfy but chic! Ah, I love your easy style! I bet you pack an amazing suitcase…

    I want a Mai Tai now…<3

    Obsessed! There’s a tropical print dress I’ve been coveting and this just reinforces my desire for it. :)
