Illustration

About a month ago, I stumbled upon a fellow blogger named Elena, who has an amazing talent for creating fashionable illustrations. I am so inspired by her creativity, and her ability to mix art with fashion, so I was thrilled when she sent me one, inspired by my “Oceanic” post. I love that she took the fish print of the dress and drew me inside of a bubble under the sea. I also love that she gave me wicked long eyelashes! What do you think?

Here are some pictures from the original post.

Tan n’ Lime

A big trend for Spring and Summer is pairing brights with brights, and I love to mix colors, but sometimes it’s nice to pair a bright with a neutral for a more sophisticated look. So, I paired my bright lime chiffon blouse with a tan fitted skirt, and accessorized with neutral toned shoes and clutch. I added a little texture and fun with a snakeskin printed belt that has bright yellow stitching (I finally found an outfit for it!). If you want to experiment with wearing color, this is a good way to start. Just pair a bright with a neutral like tan, beige, or cream for an easy, fresh look.

Emerald

The calendar may not agree, but Summer is definitely upon us in Houston. One of my favorite ways to get dressed up in the summer is with a flowy, feminine dress. I love this BCBG dress assymetrical dress so much, that I bought it in two colors: the emerald green and the white. You can wear this dress in so many ways. You can wear it with a skinny belt, like I have, for a more delicate look; or with a thick belt for a more dramatic look. You can also wear it without a belt! Since the dress is so simple, I went all out with the accessories and layered two chunky gold chain necklaces together. What do you think of my summery night-out look?
