No joke, I feel like the tropical print is here to haunt me this summer. There’s no corner turned without me seeing a variation of this majestic 80’s and 90’s statement. Bold and beautiful the tropical print works because… well cause it’s awesome. I can’t speak highly enough of it’s well rounded way of making us cute hipster girls look totally cool and California ready without loosing our edge. Include some neon or a grandpa visits Disney World feel to it and you’re really onto something. My most recent purchase in the tropical variety was a sweet wallet I found at Urban Outfitters.
So my advice if you’re shy to do a really bold head to toe tropical look, pick up something itty bitty like this sweet cap (spotted at buffalo exchange a few weeks ago).

Or mix the print with a completely different style of print:
Ok, now onto how to recreate some of these looks. Don’t be surprised when I tell you this, but part of the reason why I love this trend so much is that it’s SO easy to find at the… yes you guessed it.. THRIFT STORE. But other options include:
|This GORGEOUS silk blouse from one of my favorite etsy shops We Are Tribe.|
|Birds.. yes PARROTS even better. Find this skirt here.|
|I dig this dress so much, the shape the kitschiness of the print.. it’s just plain old GREAT. Find it here.|
|This.. is everything. Find it here.|
