Welcome to The Modern Mosaic,  where I bring together all of the pieces that make life beautiful.

The Proof is in the Print

When putting together some of my favorite looks for Summer 2015, printed shorts were on the top of my list! It has become nearly impossible to walk through stores like Zara, Nordstrom and H&M without seeing these colorful creations. 

Whether you're feeling bright florals or more of a neutral design, these shorts come in endless styles to coordinate with your summer wardrobe. Luckily, my closet is full of basic pieces that are the perfect addition to bold shorts. A plain white or black top helps bring attention to the print, without overwhelming the eye. 

I used photos like the ones above to inspire my printed shorts look. While I'm a sucker for floral, I couldn't help but love the intricate design on these shorts and knew they would match my white, chiffon top perfectly. The bedazzled collar gives this look a little sparkle without the hassle of putting on jewelry. Both the shorts and top were from Forever 21 and my sunglasses were from Quay Australia. 


I have to thank Victoria West Photography and Shaun Turley Photography for the amazing photos you see above. They will be featured in more of my upcoming posts and if you haven't had a chance to see the photos from my White Hot Summer post, check it out here
