The weather is changing, the sun is out, flowers are popping up on every corner, and my Passport is asking to be used. It is saying, throw me in a bag with a flowing dress, some bejeweled sandals, radiant sunglasses, and lets find some far off land, where spices are sold in burlap sacks, the food is hot and the people are beautiful.

I pulled together these pieces that are all different but tied together but the vibrancy of the colors, the boldness of the print and the ease of wear.

The trick for going big with color, prints and patterns is to not be afraid. Find a silhouette you typically gravitate towards, a slim pant, a waist cinching wrap dress, a pencil dress and go bold. Step away from the gray and black and add yellow, oranges, limes, cerulean, ruby.
I love the idea making a splash in a bold and beautiful way, that's as wild as it is sophisticated.
