PLEATED YELLOW

MEMORIAL DAY IN NAPA
Me and my girlfriends took a trip out to Napa on Memorial Day to celebrate my dear friend Issy's birthday. We ended up visiting 3 different wineries and I fell in love with the architecture of the last winery we visited, Opus One. Although we didn't even make it to the tasting at this winery... the architecture made due for some pretty awesome photos. We ended up having a blast just laying out on the grass and playing around with my DSLR. What did you do on Memorial Day?

LACE OVERTONES

EXPERIMENTING WITH CROPPED LACE
I was going through my closet to find a good pairing to wear underneath this cropped lace and came across this soft, neon green camisole I purchased from American Eagle 8 years ago. I liked how the green popped out underneath the lace while bringing out the overlay of the lace. Don't you love it when you come across old pieces in your closet that you can wear, even years later?

SUMMER FUN

FREE PEOPLE MAY CATALOG


Some of my favorite images pulled from Free People's May 2012 catalog. I've always been a fan of Free People's ability to go experimental with patterns and colors, creating a whimsical feel to their clothes. I can't wait for summer to hit and thought this post would make due of some nice inspiration photos, especially for Florida - an awaited trip me and my girls are planning for the year.

COMBAT FEVER

THE ARMY VEST
I've always been attracted to army green and clothes that fall into the military trend look. The rugged, edged up, casual appeal seems to suite my style well and I appreciate its ability to "dress down" certain looks. With summer approaching it starting getting a bit too warm to wear my green parka, so I was pleasantly surprised when I found a vest version of it at Zara.

NEON GOLD

STAYIN BRIGHT
For a a contrasting look I decided to play up my neon skirt with a sheer black top and a gold cuff. Although I've attempted to dress down this skirt several times, it seems as though every time I pull together an outfit with this skirt, it looks like quite the opposite. Like I'm ready to hit the town for a night out with my girls. I blame it on the fit and color... and possibly my inner party side.
