Bold prints are perfect for Summer, or year round for that matter. The palm and leaf prints poping up everywhere fit right in with the warm weather and conjure up a fabulous island getaway. I find with any print, the larger one’s tend to look chic and modern as opposed to smaller versions. A neutral version is a bonus as any bright color pairs to perfection.

With beach season calling, I’ve begun to rally my maxi’s and bikinis for the season ahead. I will admit, I sometimes forget that a simple beach cover-up doesn’t need to be so simple. With the addition of the right accessories, a black beach maxi is instantly kicked up a notch.

Every girl has an abundance of one item or another in her closet and for me… wait for it …I have 3 drawers full of scarves. Yes I know this comes as no surprise. My love affair was seriously fueled when I added my first Theodora & Callum to the mix. The Tie-all is such a versatile piece and I have to admit, I really don’t utilize it to full creative capacity when quickly draping it around my neck on the way out the door. I decided to shake up my scarf rut and try something new with the triple knot. I loved the newness just 3 little knots brought. I fully intend to keep my scarves busy this Summer with the endless possibilities!

I love it when I stumble upon basics with fantastic detailing. An unexpected patterned lining of a blazer or even the intricate stitching on a garment can give new life to a wardrobe staple. Black shorts are a must and are definitely already in my closet, but the scalloped hem line on these made them instantly appealing, giving a fresh take on the standard black short. They were a bit of a throwback to Japan with a nod to the girly, playful side of fashion. Paired with a super bright belt, I already know these will become a Summer staple.
