Trend I’m Loving: Cactus Print

Along with the dawning of summer, bright and fun prints comes with it.  This year, the print of the season is cactus!  I love the fun takes on the prickly plant, from cartoon-esque drawings, to sequins, to photo prints.  The colors that go along side the cactus prints are some of my favorites: washes of green with pinks, preferrable a blush tone. cactus shoes // cactus shirtdress  &lt;br /&gt;<br />

Spring 2017 Capsule Wardrobe

It may be behind my original timeline but finally, finally my Spring capsule wardrobe is completed.  I had ordered a few tops from Swap (the online thrift store I am obsessed with) and wanted to make sure they worked well with the other items I have before posting!

Greenhouse Shenanigans

Sometimes, at the end of winter, I like to go to my favorite greenhouses just purely for therapeutic effects.  But this trip yesterday was actually for work purposes- how cool is that?! When shopping for greens, I go to my two favorite local shops.  One being Edwards Greenhouse, where we went yesterday, and the other being 36th Street Garden Center.  The jungle-like atmosphere is good for the soul, not to mention the hair and skin!  I also greatly appreciate the merchandising of both shops-  ...

Style Obsession: Silk Scarves

There isn’t much more of a classic look that a tied silk scarf.  It adds the perfect polish to an otherwise basic outfit like a striped tee and jeans!  I’m loving these photos of ways to wear this Spring accessory.  1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 Shop the Look: &amp;amp;lt;br /&amp;amp;gt;&amp;lt;br /&amp;gt;&lt;br /&gt;<br />
