Don't be afraid to reveal the inner-child in you this Fall. Trends for patterns and prints vary every season, but we inevitably still see them on the runway to a certain degree. Graphic sweaters and tees? Not so much. While designers display them from time to time, it's rare for a wave of highly revered ones to be so forthright about them. However, I've noticed that from the collections of Stella McCartney to Max and Co. to Burberry, graphics are 'fall'-ing in style. The sweaters above are some of my favorites, and if you know me, when I shop, versatility ranks at the top of my priorities. You can easily throw on a cardigan vest or blazer with these sweaters in mild weather or grab a warm, puffy vest on colder days. From slipping on a pair of classic denim jeans to flaunting a bit of skin with cute skirts, you won't have to stress about searching for the "right" bottom.
Obviously, we can't always splurge on luxurious items, so if you're more of a trend-follower who discards an item after the trend dies or prefer cute vintage looks, then you might to check out one of the following: 1.

TGIF, everyone! I still can't believe that it's Friday. Labor Day Weekend has already arrived. Last Labor Day, our family went to The Taste (food festival) thanks to the free tickets I received from PBS during my internship there. Since we hosted a BBQ about 3 weeks ago, our family's planning on taking it easy and going out for brunch by the beach. If you have any exciting plans, do share!
Currently: interior and furniture shopping with my mom; updates to come, soon! Until then...
Love, Pristine Christine
