Wearing a cardigan and a thin scarf, freezing woman Melissa Cady, 34, reportedly walked to work in frigid temperatures today following her decision that it is spring now. “The date is April 8 and it is now springtime and it is beautiful out,” said the shivering, coatless woman as a gust of cold air blasted into her face. “Winter is over. The seasons have changed. I am happy and warm now.” Sources said the woman spent her lunch hour walking along Lake Michigan, vigorously rubbing her hands together and blowing into them.” — The Onion
Melissa, you’re our spirit animal. Even as we’re still struggling through the last few rains of our Seattle spring, summer clothes with lots of prints remind us that warmer days are on the horizon. If you’re like Melissa, you’ve decided that spring is here, no matter what the weather is doing and that means it’s time to shop for and wear spring and summer clothes.
So, what to wear? We’ve been reviewing the looks from Paris Fashion Week and it’s clear that head-to-toe prints are trending this summer. We’re so on board.
Is summer really summer if there aren’t flowers and flowing dresses everywhere? We don’t think so.

Not sure what to match wth your new large print pants? How about a large print top? Print-on-print looks recall the jumper look, but are so much easier to manage. And they’re adorable. 100 times yes.
