Warmer Weather on My Mind.

16 Feb

All this back-and-forth, confused weather has me dreaming of warmer places and brighter colors. I personally could go without cold weather months all together. Shorter hemlines, ice cream, and sunscreen are just a few of my summer loves. And the Maldives only make the sun and sand more appealing. Any takers?

Bridesmaid Dresses | The Meghan.

10 Feb

I’ve been hiding behind yards and yards of chocolate brown dupioni silk for the past two weeks sewing and fitting bridesmaids dresses for a dear friend’s wedding in April. The only request was that we wear brown dresses, so beyond that the choice was wide opened on our end. The Meghan dress is the first one on the scene, fully lined and sleeveless with a ruffle neckline. Here are some of the details:

Color | Shades of Green.

18 Jan

Green has always been a staple in my closet and for my home. I love the varying shades of this arguably neutral color. Try pairing it with khaki, taupe, chocolate, navy, or bold colors for the spring. Any of these softer pieces will suffice quite nicely for dress up or the interiors:

Color Blocking | Red + Pink.

Ok. If you know me at all you know 2 things: 1. Red does not exist in my closet. I don’t gravitate towards it in stores and I never wear it, even at Christmas. 2. Pink sort of makes me think of pop princesses. Maybe it’s a little too girly, maybe I am just being obstinate towards it for no reason. It’s undecided.

However, something happened to me when I realized what a combo pink + red are together. Like, I want to go buy lots of pink and red this very moment. And wear them together. And I won’t even feel like I’m repping Valentine’s Day.

Clutch | Brown Crocodile.

This leather inspired rich brown, crocodile envelope clutch is perfect for transitioning from daytime chunky sweaters to evenings out. You can snag your very own over on Etsy.

Inspire | Heidi Merrick.

29 Dec

Yes, it’s only almost January. I realize that the cold is only starting here on the east coast, but I can not help dreaming of warmer days and sunny rays. Heidi Merrick’s Spring 2012 collection help put me in the summery mood last night and is inspiring my own Spring/Summer 2012 line.

Holiday Party | Black + Gold.

And rocked around the Christmas tree I did, at the Charlotte City Club in this ensemble.
