WineWalk spring summer sale

Brighten Your Summer with Lots of Prints!

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.
