The best purchase I made this summer are these jungle print cropped pants from Zara at a smooth $49.99. I’ve worn them more times than anyone would ever think they could wear jungle print pants. Naturally, I couldn’t close my suitcase without throwing them in at the last minute – true story. A wise decision, that was, to entertain the impulse. I paired them with a double print top; the pops of blue flowers match in the overall clash. Arm party, necessary. Complete with Jewel Mint All Wrapped Up bracelet (thank u!) and Tarina Tarantino pink skulls. My gold Miu Miu sandals making an appearance here alongside the latest edition to my closet, the Louis Vuitton Neverfull (ideal travel companion: goes with everything and is literally, never full) and my NY Yankees hat because sometimes I can dig cliches.

Last week we gathered in the Julia M. Gallery to view the Tatsuaki Spring collection. For my full review of the runway show visit – for my outfit, stay here. I think every Spring there’s a resurgence of either pastels or brights – the pattern seems to be an alternating one. Last Spring we were all told to grab solid bright colours, blue, red, brown, green and pink and stack them. Fashion whores called it colour blocking. We paid homage to Mondrian and worked our VISA at Zara – their entire store was colour blocked last May. This season, much like Spring 2010, it’s back to pastels. And quite frankly, I couldn’t be happier. The colour block stuff is too abrasive for me. I mean, who wants to walk around looking primed for a popsicle stick shoved squarely up their ass? Nah. Give me pastels and flowers any day.
