I really really wanted to like another collection at Paris Fashion Week more than IM's - just because I am pretty much already a devoted fan and I don't want to think of myself as predictable.... but even though I was loving many other collections, when I think about something I could wear in my real life, IM always hits the right note. Plus, the color palette of ochres, olives, rusty browns with metallics really got me. ♡
Found this L'Officiel Paris editorial and just loved everything about it, the landscape, the rose golden dusty light, the rustic natural olive/ochre color palette, the complimentary textures, the jewelry and so on....
Dreaming of a safari experience as fashionable as this - exactly what great editorials do - add some magic dust to our dreams. Love that ♡

I tend to gravitate toward the street style photos during fashion week (an earlier one here) instead of what came down the runway...well, for the most part that is. It is a lot of fun to see how people express their style personality during fashion week/month. It's a little bit of style theatre goes well with my morning americano.
As I followed NYFW this was one look I really loved. I could never pull this look off personally (how I wish I could), but I loved how she did. Baseball cap, leather jacket, denim jacket, Chanel boots, purple/berry ombre hair, bronze metallic clutch, blue nail polish.... The mix of texture and color.made for an awesome expression, very inspiring ♡

In celebration of Valentines Day I am sharing some outtakes from an afternoon spent with Angie making floral crowns. She is a very talented girl - she can make and design many many beautiful things. Learn more about her over at her creativity filled blog Bonne Chance (she also has an entry about how she made this crown). You will be seeing more about her and her creations as we are collaborating on a few things.
Flowers are one of those simple pleasures that seem to always lift the spirit - and to me that's what Valentines is about. Lifting the spirits of those around us with simple thoughtful gestures as often as possible. The tiniest simplest thought can hold such profound meaning, the little things means so much.
Here's to the power of the simple & the celebration of love xo! ♡
