For most, there are few times of the year that generates more sadness than the start of school. You know the drill. Summer days spent idly laying by a pool or simply searching for the best frozen yogurt place in town are now filled with scheduling, packing and organizing. Embrace these fleeting days of summer, by stepping out in a floral themed accessory. After all, soon we will trade in our light summer dresses for dark layers and though the change can sometimes be a welcome one, there is something to be said for taking it all in, one last time.

This Fashionista pulls her whole look together with her seasonal floral scarf. She transforms a basic, everyday look consisting of cut-off shorts and a white, sleeveless tee into a statement-making outfit with the fun print. Although she incorporates the summer shade in a different manner, I love the way that Aimee Song styles her floral print, both dressing it up with a skirt and adding the mirrored effect with her sunglasses. When compared side by side with this Fashionista’s chic ensemble, it is hard to deny the power of a basic white tee to bring out the vibrant nature of the floral pattern.

With the start of school looming in the very near future, there is typically a sense of urgency involved with finding the perfect tote bag to store all of your class essentials during the day. Relish these last summer days that can be spent in a minimalist way, with a simple but chic cross-body bag. This Fashionista’s olive toned bag ensures that it will easily spillover into fall. For those cooler months, pair the bag with a chic sweatshirt, some denim and booties.
