Trend Alert: Palm Prints & Wrap Skirts

July 9, 2017

No doubt you’ve been seeing palm print everywhere. Do they make you happy? They make me feel vacation-y … always a fabulous feeling!

palm print trends, resort style over 40

Palm Print Wrap Skirt

This pretty wrap skirt, another huge trend, is even more spectacular with the lovely green and white palm print. I love the fresh resort feel of this look.  Have you worn a wrap skirt recently?  I noticed in a few photos, I’m showing more leg than I had planned on, especially when I walked.  You can play around with how tight you wrap the top and where the opening goes.  But hey, a little leg in a resort-friendly look is kinda nice too.  Especially when I prepared my legs with some Sally Hanson Airbrushed Leg Makeup!

The Location

Unfortunately I wasn’t on vacation wearing this look, but I did get to have a quick meet up with Cathy of Bay Area Fashionista for some photos and girl chat at Santana Row, a local hot spot. I also got to go pick up a gift card for winning Santana Row’s photo of the month contest, also thanks to Cathy!  Always nice to have a little extra spending money!

    I really love the look of wrap dresses, but I am also starting to warm up to wrap skirts too! The palm print adds something extra to this whole look!
