I love fun prints for the summer! They are trendy and give a little edge to any outfit.

There are so many prints out there to choose from: tribal, animal, floral, abstract, etc… They can really spice up your basic top and shorts or skirt combo.  Plus, their versatility allows you to dress them up or down so you can wear them out to dinner with the girls or just to run errands!

I also really like this top from Zara because it is like a crop top but you get more coverage with the sheer paneling, which is great if you happen to apprehensive about showing too much skin.

Both these pieces are from Zara and are a great price! The actual outfit with links is listed below for easy shopping! Also I have added this look in plus-size and a few other variations.  Check it out and please let me know what you think!

All jewelry featured in the pictures are by my friend Erin McDermott. She is a local Charlotte gal that is incredibly talented and such a sweetheart! All of her pieces are beautifully handcraftedand unique! Check her out at Erin McDermott.com and also on twitter and instagram @ErinMcDermott. I also have to give a huge shoutout to the wonderful Drea Cunningham for these beautiful photos. She is also an amazingly talented Charlotte gal and is perfect for portraits, wedding and engagments just to name a few! You can find her at www.cunninghamphotoartists.com and at @dreacunningham.
