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 />

Favorite Catalogs

As a marketer and clothing lover, I find it a lot of fun to check out catalogs.  It’s not only for the purchasing options, but also for the visual layouts and creativeness of the whole effect.  Here are a few of my favorite catalogs to sign up for! 1.
