Pardon My Print / Palm Trees

I love my prints and with summer here it's no surprise that tropical prints like palm trees are making their mark on the style scene this season.  In my opinion wearing palm trees is like wearing a smile because it's saying warm weather is here and who isn't their happiest when sunshine is around?!  When I think of mixing fashion with palm trees I think more casual wear with full palm trees, trunk and all.  Because of this I really wanted to style an outfit contrary to that thinking.  I wanted something pretty and a look that was more for an occasion rather than the beach.  I was very pleased when I came across the variety that I had to choose from.  Sandro and Finders Keepers are two designers in particular that had a lot of palm tree pieces that I loved and that both included the full tree or more graphic prints of just the leaves like what I chose.  Whether a palm tree bikini, a casual tee for a days stroll or wearing it fancied up for an event there are ways to incorporate this print no matter your style or occasion for.
See for yourself.

I'm obsessed with little bomber jackets like these.  This one is BCBG which means you can count on the fit and structure being perfect.  Let's get to the obvious though, the print and mix of colours is fabulous!  Keeping the remainder of your look neutral will let this piece get all the attention that it deserves.  Where should you wear this?  How about everywhere!  This jacket doesn't need a special occasion to make an appearance.

Did you just gasp like I did when I first put this outfit on?  I'm a fan of camouflage print but this one is just so on point between being feminine and trendy.  Chartreuse is super hot this season and complements this print perfectly.  I've paired it with this skirt that was in store and in the same colour family however if you prefer not to be so matchy-matchy you have a lot of other colour options to choose from.

This might possibly be the cutest romper I have ever seen in life!  The romper is by Stone_Cold_Fox, just another amazing brand carried by Bicyclette.  Between it's girly floral print and dainty frills it still has some sex appeal with a deep plunge in the front.  Wearing this to a backyard party would be perfection!

I can't stop loving stripes for summer and this blouse is amazing because it can be worn either for work or just casually.  The real head turner was this vibrant yellow maxi.  Trust me if I was 6 feet tall this would have come home with me without hesitation and if you are that tall you should go get it today!  Both the colour and fit of this skirt would have you making such a statement at any event this summer.

Nothing says it's summer better then incorporating palm trees into your look!  This dress by Sandro is so beautiful.  The colours are so striking and the kaleidoscope print makes it so interesting to look at.  With the summer heat finding a great dress is key and if you haven't already noticed the shift dress is ever so popular right now.  And I didn't mind how flattering this neckline was either!
