PRE-FALL PRINTS & PATTERNS
Seasons are shifting and patterns are popping up everywhere. I might be a little too excited for fall to settle in. The knits, scents, cool temps, and layers get my heart jumpin' every year. Since it's still August and 90° we wont jump too far ahead but let's talk pre-fall prints! They're transitional, fun, and the easiest way to put a strong fashion foot forward. Slip on a polka dot dress, some leopard shoes, or plaid blazer and you're officially leading the fashion pack.

POLKA DOTS ARE SPOT ON
Classic. Deep dots draw the eye every time! Polka dot prints give me a chic confidence I constantly crave. Anyone else feel extra classy and a little vintage when they're sporting polka dot prints? I definitely do... and 100% love it! Stepping out of summer, I like to go for the deeper darker tones. I think those are a little more versatile too!
FEED YOUR WILD SIDE: ANIMAL PRINTS
That's right, welcome to the jungle, dessert, safari...even living room with cat and dog prints! Leopard and animal prints and pictures are making their way from shoes and accessories to dresses, coats, and sets. How fun! I think this trend is best to either add a touch some printed shoes, a bag, or layer a fun cami. Or, play with the big cats, shoot for the starts and drape yourself in a spotted coat or jumpsuit. I plan on doing both :) So, don't be afraid to feed your wild side this season!
My personal favorite print! I can use it to bring out almost all of my fashion moods. Go playful with a mini skirt, modern with large print, professional with an oversized blazer, or vintage with a jumpsuit. I'm really into the plaid blazer and denim shorts look right now too. There is a slip dress linked below that would be great with a denim jacket or white blouse and sneakers—just styling out loud! Basically, plaid is perfect for almost any occasion and it's showing up on everything!
FRESH AND FLORAL
It seems like floral is a year-round print these days, and I don't mind one bit! Pre-fall is bringing out deep, bold, botanical prints for all of our fashion needs. Hair scarfs, dresses, pants, and blouses...all the pretty florals to freshen up our fashion!
