{Fashion Fridays} Houndstooth

Merri Poppins and I have adapted this month's Fashion Friday sequence in anticipation of little Baby E's arrival. For April we'll introduce you FIRST to all the style trends, THEN recap the month with our big color scheme photo shoot and (of course) GIVEAWAY!

April's first style trend is the use of Houndstooth

And let me tell you, this print is EVERYWHERE. Wallpaper? Check. Shoes? Check. Rugs? Check. Clothing? Absolutely! But what makes this Spring/Summer trend really stand out, is the COLOR. 

And look at how BIG those prints are. It's used more as a "graphic print" this season, than it's origin as a muted fabric of depression-era wool suits.  

Fun Fact: Did you know small houndstooth prints are sometimes called "puppytooth"? How fitting a print for our little diva, Jenna, to model for us!

How cute are these Danielle Shorts? Merri Poppins will no doubt be making a LOT of these for you all this summer!

These pink "puppy"tooth shorts are paired here with the Parisan Blouse, another winning design for sure!

How fun is this trend?? It's all over the runways, but you won't find it on the shelves of your local stores just yet. Thankfully I know of a very talented seamstress who will make you a custom order piece for your family photos! 

Happy Friday everybody! I'll see you all Monday for a long-awaited NEW "Mentor Monday" post about posing! Enjoy your weekends :)
