Summer Trends: Eclectic Prints

Are you familiar with the lame-ass practice of starting an essay with a definition?

1. selecting or choosing from various sources
2. made up of what is selected from different sources

Today’s Summer Trends challenge is Eclectic Prints. I’ll be honest: Before looking up the definition, I thought “eclectic” was just a genteel way of saying “bat shit crazy.” So, I picked my weirdest print and paired it with two patterned accessories.

Blouse, Daytrip. Skirt, Herman Geist (stolen and shortened). Belt, Wilson’s. Cuff, Pangaea. Wedges, Steven by Steve Madden. Bag, vintage. Rings, Jan Michaels San Francisco and vintage.

Is this eclectic?

Tomorrow’s trend is Go Neutral. I’m not sure if I know how.

Ohmy! Yes! This is exactly what I was thinking when I thought eclectic. Love the mixture of dog portraits and leopard print.

I absolutely adore that skirt! It's very unique and the whole look reminds me of classic vintage fashion. Love it!

Aww... I was hoping for a 'bat shit crazy' photo...

I love, love, love, this skirt. And I really think the eclectic mix works here. You'll have to try much harder to reach bat shit crazy!
