Laugh if you will, but this summer fashion trend isn’t going anywhere. Being in the fashion industry, I find myself browsing some of the best fashion blogs and magazines for inspiration on the daily. This phenomenon of fruit in fashion struck me as odd when I first spotted it budding as early as last fall. Since then, the trend has totally taken over Instagram feeds and fashion editorials alike. What’s defining the summer fashion trend So what is all of this sweet ruckus about?

tips on how to prepare for the holidays

how to prepare yourself for the holidays – meal planning, holiday checklist, and more

It happens every year, yet somehow we’re never prepared. It’s holiday season.
