In Prints-ciple

Ha.  Another terrible blog title.  I’m on a roll.

Y’ALL, IT’S FRIDAY!  Let’s celebrate by rolling out the big, bold prints.  The inspiration for this post materialized when I saw the green-and-white floral skirt below (Mother of Pearl, $464).  Holy.moly.  Get me one of those, STAT.  (And P.S. – if the print is too loud for you, check out this similar style from the same brand in a simple grayish-lavender — on sale for $126!).  I love it with a simple white blouse (I covet the line Equipment, but this J. Crew variation does the job very nicely — $138) and a gorgeous statement necklace (Elizabeth Cole, on sale for $145):

This in turn reminds me of some of the stunning prints from my favorite linen provider, D. Porthault — would KILL to outfit my bed in these fine duds, but alas, $275/sham is just not in the cards.  Get the look for less with these lovelies from Biscuit Home.
