Talk about one of the easiest trends to wear! Inspired by nature, the
floral pattern is one trend every woman should indulge in. We are not
talking the ramshackle romance of the overgrown garden, bold, bright,
and overly busy. Designers and manufacturers are drawing inspiration
from the delicate structure of the garden, the touches and hints of
blossoming blooms structured over a secondary pattern in almost a formal
motif. Florals are not a new trend, in fact floral pattern clothes
have been around for centuries. Floral patterns are truly the best way
to celebrate the spring and summer season.
I'm making attempts to stay on top of my blog, but life has gotten in
the way lately. Though my schedule is crazy busy, I had a window of
opportunity today to go out and get some blog images. I didn't go for
anything spectacular. The goal was to get images.
The dress is from Target. The earrings and necklace are from Nature's Jewelry. The shoes are a constant in the blog.
The weather refuses to make up its mind! It's a common problem in New Mexico. Spring brings wind. Summer brings heat. Fall is perfect. Outside of the cold, we don't really have a winter. Snow fall is minimal. We desperately need rain. There is always a wildfire, somewhere near by, that takes months to put out because we have no real water source. That's life in a desert. Though we are still plagued with wind, I braved it today to get some images for updates.
Every fashion season is a new take on what was done before. It's also an
exploration into a realm of something that hasn't been seen or done.
Whether you are designing or styling the creation; patterns, prints, and
colors are in most ways an artistic vision that is meant to catch and
please the eye.
Styling a piece that reflects your personality is what fashion is all
about. If you are looking for a new and easy way to refresh your look
try layering simple pieces in complimenting colors. No two colors play
better with each other than black and white.
Most of my styling of outfits began with Barbie. I always wanted to
dress her differently than the bubble gum and pastel pretty image that
you saw on her pretty pink packaging. I was desperate to achieve a not
so manufactured look for her. I went so far as to cut up old pieces of
fabric and sew, albeit pretty badly, her a new wardrobe from old scraps
of discarded material we had lying around the house. To this day I still
can't sew, it is a goal of mine to learn, but the fashion bug has
always been intrigued by the what if concept.
If I could be a designer I
would. I love the idea of creating a trend that spans clear across the
globe inspiring fashionistas and bloggers everywhere to get out there
and put on their best show with the items I created. I have ideas, but
designing requires a certain level of artistic talent that I lack. So
instead I play stylist or fashion finder in hopes that someone will be
inspired, or at least appreciative, of my artistic pairing of design and
The lace top I am wearing was found at Fredericks of Hollywood. Diamond Print Skinny Jeans came from Revolve Clothing. The boots were found at Shoe Warehouse. The jewelry was gifted to me.
