Banana Republic x Marimekko

Today is the day. The Marimekko collection for Banana Republic is here! Unfortunately my nearest Banana Republic is only caring three pieces from the collection. What a tease! So here are the few items I just cannot wait to get my hands on! One day I hope you'll see me in these. A girl can dream...

Florida Macrame

Shirt | Suzy Shier
Shorts | Ann Taylor
Shoes | Geox- Similar

Watch | Timex Modern Original  ( I'm obsessed with Timex watches these days)

Happy Tuesday! We're back on schedule. Let's go. Something you may not know about me: I worked at Suzy Shier. It was a brief period in my life, and while there I purchased this gem of a shirt. I mean come on. It's amazing. I paired the macrame shirt with my floral shorts from Ann Taylor because I was feeling my adventurous pattern mixing self today, and boom the outfit was born. And because I walked quite a ways to this location I decided to wear my leather loafers (taken from my mothers closet).

Meet: Florida Stephanie

Whoops. A few days late with this post. But you can't blame me. I'm on vacation. Finally. Vacation time has arrived. I'm spending the week with my cousin, Stephanie, in Florida. And boy is it hot, but we're not complaining. Stephanie, my majestic 6'2 goddess of a cousin is the subject of this blog shoot. She just bought these pants at H&M that we needed to show off because they're this beautiful blue pattern we just can't get enough of!

Summer 2014 Must Have : The Culotte

Finally. I know what summer trend I am most excited for. I feel like my last post, Summer Rut, was slightly Debbie downer-ish of me. I was in this weird funk where I wasn't really pining for anything this summer. Which I know, it’s a ridiculous thing to get me down in the dumps.  But every year I’m so excited about a new must have trend. Two years ago I was so excited about crop tops. Last year I was ecstatic about the patterned shorts that were everywhere. This year, get ready for it, I’m dying for a pair of culottes!  Typically culottes are wide leg pants that hit around mid calf, so they are best worn with a heel so you can elongate those gams of yours. That being said, I don’t think you couldn't wear these with a cute pair of sandals for a more casual everyday look.  I’m going to England soon, and I think that’ll be prime culotte shopping time. So  get ready for a culotte photo shoot sometime in the near future!

Isabel is a designer!

Hello. So. Big News. This post today is extra special. It does not deal with fashion, however it deals with the most beautiful floral designs I have ever seen! Maybe I'm being a bit bias here, but I don't care! My dearest friend from art school, Isabel, has been selected as a runner up in the Tigerprint Mother's day floral design competition.  Yeah. It's a big deal. Her's was plucked out of the 550 designs submitted as one of the best.  If you love bright colours and patterns, you'll love Isabel's work.  Check out her blog here!

This is what happens when #stylechat dresses me

Okay. Last week I had a rather successful #stylechat. I learned that people love wide leg pants. Which makes me incredibly happy because I'm obsessed! I decided to take into account what everyone said and attempted to recreate another wide leg pant look. Without my blogger friend Kaelin from Violet&Eloise, taking my photo, this blog shoot proved to be very difficult. Let me take a moment to say: I miss us!

Summer Rut

Hi friends. My sincerest apologies for the lack of posts this past week. Who'd have thought that even after being done with school, I've still be ridiculously busy. Anywho, I am in a style rut it seems lately. I'm going to Florida soon, and I don't want to bring my summer clothes from last year. I want something new and interesting. But what's the deal with the spring/summer merch lately? Have we not seen all this last year? I must say I was getting rather frustrated looking for new additions to my summer wardrobe. Then I found these shorts and dare I say even a skort! I'm feeling optimistic again!
