In response to the summer heat I have been doing a lot of swimming lately. I have added a few new swimsuits to my wardrobe and have found myself to be particularly drawn to those with vintage inspired, tropical prints. As a child I used to love shopping for summer clothes (early signs of my burgeoning love for fashion) and whenever it came time to choose my swimsuits I would always pick the loudest, boldest, floral printed swimsuits available. As I grew older and my tastes matured I leaned towards more simple styles and predominantly solid colours with only the most subtle prints. 90s inspired fashion has been a pretty big trend as of late and with that loud, botanical inspired prints have become more popular. Here are a few of my favorite things that emulate this playful trend.
