As we swing into the warmer months, fashion featuring the fruit du jour is a good-natured way to enliven your attire. Last summer, we saw a lot of fruit prints, such as cherries, pineapples, and watermelons (see previous posts here and here).
However, this year, designers have started to roll out the tutti frutti trend a little early. One brand in particular, For Love & Lemons, has taken the lead on this fruity favorite (very fitting). Their spring/summer collection includes several pieces that feature a zesty lemon print (see below). I chose to get the jumpsuit (sold out almost everywhere already, found one here). The sweet ruffle shoulder detail pairs perfectly with the belt when tied in a bow and is so darn cute that I want to eat it up.
To go along with these fresh spring feels, I picked out this mint-colored bag by Violet Ray while visiting their NYC headquarters to discuss a few collaborations. I have a serious obsession with handbags, from affordable to designer, so I most definitely felt like a kid in a candy store while touring their showroom. You can see some of my favorite Violet Ray bags below (all under $100).
This post was made in collaboration with Violet Ray, however, opinions are my own.
