Are You a Material Girl? | 3 Ways to Wear Colorful Prints this Summer

This summer when you put on a colorful print outfit you take the fast track to feel good all day. Stock your closet with fun florals and colorful tropical prints you can wear on summer vacation or to a casual get-together. Ready set gorgeous!

Farm Rio

I’ve been obsessing over this brand since last fall when I purchased this cool print cardigan. For every Farm Rio piece, you add to your wardrobe you can make fun outfits that feel good for lots of reasons. Farm Rio is fashion and earth-friendly. For every purchase of its product, they plant a tree as part of the global reforestation nonprofit One Tree Planted. When I was at the Nordstrom in San Diego last week I was in Farm Rio heaven. Here are some of the pieces that are still in stock, but not for long.

Prints Head to Toe

Farm Rio Top, Skirt, and White Boots from the #NSale

It doesn’t matter if it’s a dress or separates wearing a print head to toe is always the most flattering. If you’re intimidated by bold prints try a neutral print piece like a striped tee shirt or animal print shoes.

White Shoes




Colorful Prints With Bright White

Take a styling suggestion right out of my Summer Capsule Wardrobe and wear those beautiful bright prints back to updated white separates like wide-leg jeans or a gauzy tiered skirt.

Wide Leg White Jeans

Wide-leg and flared jeans help balance the extra volume in many of the popular puff sleeve styles. I have all these styles from Fidelity Denim and they fit great!

White Skirt

If you’re not a fan of your middle you can wear an elastic waist skirt higher on your waist to meet and greet a slightly cropped top.

Bold Prints with Soft Denim

Denim pieces make all your outfits look effortless. Get my round-up of the best flared-leg jeans on-trend this summer HERE.
