An off the shoulder top is one thing, but an off the shoulder top with a ruffle thrown in and a print dubbed Neon Pineapple by the majesties of fashion, J.Crew, is quite another. This top screams summer, the vibrant colors and the loose casual style instantly grabbed my attention as soon as I laid eyes on it. My style philosophy in regards to this lush time of year is: Summer + Vibrant Colors = Happiness.
J.Crew’s print Neon Pineapples was actually hand painted by Italy’s Ratti House which you can read all about right here. The Ratti House draws and hand-paints almost all of their prints, over four million meters of fabric a year! I love the idea that this print was hand drawn and painted by an artist in their factory overlooking Lake Como, I guess I really am a romantic a heart. Check out the print on J.Crew’s site in a variety of styles and cuts. Ps- they even have a pair of pumps in the funky print- talk about a way to subtley show your true style in the office.
The summer is flying so I am trying to soak up every moment that I can and I hope you are too, maybe you’ll throw in some crazy colors to your summer wardrobe as well!
