I may be turning 29 next month, but I’m still as in love with whimsical pieces as ever. Give me sparkles, bows and polka dots and you are guaranteed a happy girl.

I saw an absolutely adorable ice cream cone print dress on Pinterest the other day (check it out below) and it opened up a whole new world of possibilities for me. I’ve always shied away from prints (except for my beloved stripes and polka dots), but the idea of working some sweet and whimsical prints into my rotation is really appealing.

I love that most of these prints are understated and you have to look a little closer to see that the print you’re looking at isn’t as straightforward as you thought.

I wish that ice cream cone dress was available!
