Bold Prints for Summer


If you know me in real life, you know I’m such a prints girl. The bolder the print is the better in my book…Unfortunately, thanks to my extra curves, which I’ll spare you the details on as I’ve shared my struggle with a thyroid condition before, I haven’t been pulling out my favorite prints lately. Needless to say, I’m still working on losing the pounds being pregnant with the lil’ lady bean brought me, and that’s why I haven’t been rockin’ as many bold prints as I did in summers past.

Well, I  have decided that I can only do what I can do. I can continue working on my healthy lifestyle and, while it might take me longer to lose weight than takes some others, that’s ok. I am going to be happy with me and rock my favorite prints curves and all!


On that note…On our trip to Myrtle Beach, I picked up a gorgeous off the shoulder print dress that I can’t get enough of. Yes…I’m sharing ANOTHER off the shoulder look. Hahahaha! What can I say? I’m obsessed! The off the shoulder silhouette…the fringe…the uber bright hues…I love everything about this dress! And it makes such a statement on its own, I barely needed to accessorize it.  I simply added a tassel pendant necklace (which you may remember from this off the shoulder post) and cognac sandals.




So, how do you feel about bold prints lovelies? Do you love them as much as I do or are they too much for you? I can’t wait to hear your thoughts! And now that you’ve seen my latest look, head over to Momtrends and Thirty Something Fashion for their style thoughts. You’ll find both color and neutrals…The best of both worlds! Also, you can link up your own posts over at Thirty Something Fashion this week!
