Last weekend, I stored away most of my bright summer pieces while pondering how I could continue to incorporate my favorite prints through the rest of the year.  While my fall outfits will likely involve faux leather or leopard, floral prints will still stake a claim in this season’s wardrobe.  The difference: I’m reaching for moodier florals in darker colors and edgier details.  Check out a few of my favorite fall florals and let me know what you think of these transitional pieces.

Nothing says summertime like a patterned frock.  Whether it’s floral, tribal, or graphic, printed day dresses are easy to throw on and even more fun to oogle.  Can I have them all, please?
