Somehow fruity details in fashion make an outfit more fun. Am I right?! The inspo for this look comes from my nickname, Anna Banana. This bag is by Kate Spade. Given the recent news, I treasure this bag even more. It’s from her ‘That’s Bananas’ range.Pretty much anytime I see anything banana... I get it. Have to have it! I will wear this bag until until it falls apart! As for the whimsical pineapple sweater, I think it is just so cute without being too 'cutesy' if you know what I mean. It's my Show Me Your Mumu. The white jeans are by 7 for all Mankind. The gold flats are by Tory Burch.

Kendrick Slaughter of KK Bloom styled me for this shoot. Here's what she has to say about the look: "There is nothing better than a light weight, cozy summer sweater. Add some pineapples....check. Add a banana purse..check check! This is one of my favorite looks, and I must say, you cant have too much fruit right? Pair with some white skinnys or distressed cut off denim shorts. Add a chunky candy colored cocktail ring for a sweet pop. Another big trend for spring and summer is feathers. You will see lots of necklaces and earrings adorned with this whimsical material (and I absolutely LOVE some feathers). So I say, layer it all on and make your outfit a little party."
