Fun Prints for Summer 2014

Hey all! Since we're still in the middle of summer here over in Australia (it'll probably stay hot all throughout March!) there's still plenty of opportunity to pull out all the cutest and fun bright prints for the hot season. I've noticed a lot of my summer clothes nowadays are only getting more colourful and slightly more quirky. There's three occasions I have been wearing prints a lot during summer- going out outfits, the gym, and the beach, of course!

Summer prints on: Going Out Outfits
Criss cross crop top: Love Culture
Pineapple shorts: local boutique
Crochet fringe cardigan: ASOS
Neon yellow bag: Missguided
Sunglasses: Sabo Skirt

I know you guys have already seen these pineapple shorts on my blog but...I can't resist! I wear these shorts out everywhere. Fruit prints have been quite popular nowadays (I've seen apples, strawberries, lemons and pretty much everything at the local food market!) although I'm especially loving pineapple prints! They just have such a fun, quirky shape to them, and also give a tropical vibe.

I matched the pineapple shorts with a complementing yellow bag and a baggy crochet cardigan- crochet is my favourite beach accessory!

Summer prints on: Gym


Baby birds gym bag: c/o Surfdome (link here)
Tropical print sports crop top: Cotton On Body
Tropical print sports shorts: Cotton On Body

The other place I have been going to a lot this summer is the gym! So I'll often be lugging around a big bag full of my exercise gear on almost a daily basis- so why not get a cute one? This one is from Surfdome.com and has the sweetest all-over bird print! There are two straps, so you can wear it like a big handbag close to your shoulder, or wear the longer one with the bag close to your hip (which makes it easy to take stuff out :)) The bag is extremely spacious and I can definitely fit all my gym essentials in it with ease- clothes, sneakers, water and healthy snacks :)

This gym bag is from Surfdome, a UK-based online store featuring over 900 lifestyle brands in clothing, accessories and equipment. Some famous brands stocked include Billabong, Superdry, Super Dry and French Connection! They also ship to over 50 countries.

I've also been stocking up on some more interesting and exciting exercise gear as well, including this tropical printed active set from Cotton On Body! Love the ombre colours and palm trees design especially, on this crop top.


Summer prints on: Beach wear
'Flaming Go Go's' swimsuit: c/o Funkita Swimwear (link here)
reflector sunnies: eBay
personalised name necklace: c/o Onecklace.com

And of course during summertime, prints can definitely be worn to the beach! I went with a one-piece this time for something different. It's amazing how relieving it is to wear something where you don't have to worry about the food you've been eating for the past few days lol! I slipped on this one piece from Funkita and it immediately flattened and smoothed out those bumps and lumps. This is great for anyone who isn't yet comfortable wearing a two-piece out to the beach or pool. The bright and fresh flamingo print make it quirky and cute, rather than an out-of-date daggy one-piece.

This is from Funkita Swimwear's new collection 'We the People', which also has a bunch of other funky and bright swimwear pieces. This flamingo print also comes in a two piece (http://www.funkita.com/ladies-tie-detail-top/1990713-flaming-go-go-s.html for the top, and http://www.funkita.com/latest-swimwear-ladies-tie-detail-brief/1990716-flaming-go-go-s.html for the bikini bottom) :)

I'm still wearing layers trying to stay warm and dry in Seattle : ( This is such a great post! I definitely want to add more prints to my wardrobe. I think fruit prints are so cute! I love the sports bag as well! I'm actually loving the sports bra as well- I love graphic prints like that. And omg, that swimsuit is so cute and fun! I love how bright it is. I can't wait til I can incorporate some of these into my summer wardrobe!! : )
