Be Always Blooming - OOTD

"The flower that blooms in adversity is the most rare and beautiful of all." - Quote from the movie Mulan
This is the type of outfit that I like to describe as "prettily rugged". It has a girly romantic tone mixed with some boyish elements. Plus, a great statement bag and shoes will always be the perfect finishing touches.

Ever since I saw these Burberry Prorsum Hand-Painted Leather Peep Toe Booties I have been lusting after them. They are so girly with an artistic edge, and I'm loving them!

My 5 Faves From the Lisa Perry Resort 2015 Collection

Designer Lisa Perry's muse for her Resort 2015 Collection was style icon Francoise Hardy. Perry was inspired by Hardy's chic, cool, casual tomboy vibe. So for this collection she presented a lot more separates instead of her usual A-line shifts. Even though she veered slightly from her usual aesthetic this collection still had a lot of the Lisa Perry charm that I have come to adore.

Coastal Entertaining

Embellish your decor and illuminate your space with a coastal theme. A coastal style is effortless, and fits well in a contemporary and a traditional setting. This decorating style works all year round, and after a hard day of dealing with daily demands you can come home and exhale surrounded by tranquil beauty.
Right now I'm feeling coastal offerings from .

13 Different Ways To Rock Bangs

Okay, I must admit, I have always been obsessed with bangs. I have never had a hair cut or rocked a hairstyle without them. I have tried them in many different variations except micro-bangs ( most of the time micro-bangs only tend to look good on toddlers). Bangs are usually cut straight at or above the eyebrows, but they can also be ragged or ruffled, spiked up with hair gel, swept to one side or the other, or cut longer to fall over the eyes.

My Faves From the Erin Fetherston Resort 2015 Collection

Fashion designer Erin Fetherston was inspired by botanical prints from the New York Public Library for her Resort 2015 Collection. To create her prints she bought flowers at the local market and photographed them. The floral prints fit right in with her feminine design aesthetic. My favorite pieces from her collection was her wide array of dresses that can take you from a casual day to a romantic evening.
