Hello, and welcome! It’s great you’re here today. Last week I shared my love for wearing bright, fun colors – especially in the summertime. Today, I couldn’t help but go for a bold print. Just like playing with color, I love a pretty print. Prints and patterns don’t have to be super colorful to be bold. A big, strong print in just two colors, or tones can make a fun statement. Especially in the summer, when tropical prints can transport you to a vacation vibe. So, here's how I'm wearing the tropical trend this Summer.
Today Kelly is showing us how she's wearing the tropical trend this Summer

Kelly rounded up her 12 favorite FARM Rio, tropical items for Summer
Speaking of a tropical vacation, it is positively sultry here in Athens today. With 85 degree temperatures and intermittent rain, it is steamy! But that didn’t stop me and Alex from going out for a happy hour cocktail at one of our favorite places downtown, The South Kitchen.
This Blue Pineapple Garden Romper is from Farm Rio. This romper came out in the spring and it’s nearly sold out at Saks. But more than just this romper, today I wanted to focus on the fun, summery prints from Farm Rio. Even better, with the Nordstrom Anniversary sale about to begin, you can shop Farm Rio fashions at Nordstrom. But first, let’s talk about this outfit.
Keeping things casual, I am wearing Fisherman Slides from Madewell. Super comfy for walking around, but minimal enough to keep the focus on the blue pineapple print of my romper.
I have my Mar y Sol Striped Woven Tote because it will hold my sweater while I am not wearing it, and while we’re downtown…maybe a little shopping is in order! So this large tote is perfect for holding whatever goodies I find along the way to South Kitchen. I love Mar y Sol handbags and totes. The colors are fun and summery, plus they often have cute details like pom poms or tassels. Here are a few other Mar y Sol styles.
Baja Woven Tote (Saks Off 5th) | Capri Woven Tote (Saks Off 5th) | Veneta Raffia Tote (Amazon) | Samana Market Tote (Amazon) | Tybee Tote (Amazon)
Because the weather is a little unpredictable today, and restaurants are always chilly, I have brought along a light sweater. This oatmeal-colored cardigan is several years old, but a light colored-neutral cardigan is always a handy closet staple. Here are a few options:
Crochet Cardigan (Loft) | Cashmere Cardigan (J.Crew) | Linen Cardigan (Banana Republic)
Blue Pineapple Romper (FARM Rio) | Fisherman Slide Sandals (Madewell) | Mar Y Sol Camden Tote (Amazon)
Cheers to bringing the tropical vacation to you with fun tropical fashion from Farm Rio! I have rounded up several options from Farm Rio below, available at Nordstrom.
