reader request

This reader request was really fun and different to look for!
 My reader Kaylee sent me this short and sweet e-mail:

I need your help.
I am someone that is afraid/hesitant of color in my wardrobe.
So I have turned to simple prints but I have found many to look cheesy
and or too "animal-like".
Can you help find me some print shirts/skirts to liven up my look?

Prints are tricky because many times they can come across dated. The trick to timeless prints is to stick with classic colors and patterns like stripes and dots, and black and white. That being said prints are a fun way to try out a new trend! I threw in both classic, and trendy prints. I am especially loving the tribal prints that are everywhere right now! I tried to keep the colors neutral for Kaylee but threw in a few colorful pieces too!

  1. Great post Lyndsey! I love all of your picks!

  2. All lovely items! When it comes to prints, I don't worry about looking 'dated'. I just wear it ironically like "yeah, I know this looks old but I make it work anyways."
