Marina








Top: Target
Jeans: Forever 21
Bag: H&M
Sandals: Urban Outfitters
Sunglasses: River Island
Necklace: Made myself

          I know that anybody who pays attention to my blog probably knows how much I love floral.  I found this top at Target.  I love the Blue and white floral pattern.  It just feels kind of nautical and Summery.  I also got this bucket bag from H&M this week.  I really needed a plain black purse and I wanted a bucket bag, so perfect combo!

          I also want to add that I put some of my S/S collection up on Etsy, so you can check that out here:  https://www.etsy.com/shop/BlossomBrigade

Sushi T-shirt










Top: Zara
Pants: Forever 21
Sandals: Target
Purse: Kate Spade
Sunglasses: River Island
Necklace: DIY
Watch: Ebay

          Today I went for a short walk.  I wore my striped sushi top from Zara.  I got it when I went to Houston about a month ago.  It fits really well, and feels like really good quality for the money.  I chose to wear it with these tapered pants from Forever 21.  I got them a while ago though.  I normally tuck shirts into these pants because they are high wasted, but I think this shirt looks better untucked.  It just makes it feel a bit more modern.  It's not that I am getting tired of high wasted things, I just feel like it's becoming too predictable for me.

Burst Top












Top: Blossom Brigade
Jeans: F21
Sandals: Wanted
Bracelet: Meijer

          I'd like to introduce to you the first piece of many from my S/S15 collection from Blossom Brigade.  I'm showing you this one first because it was the first one that I made.  This collection consists of mostly satin pieces.  It's kind of an odd concept but I think satin looks really cool in the sun.  I also like how it can look totally casual or be easily dressed up.  For this top, I wanted to do something with giant sequins.  I haven't seen anything quite like this before.  I designed a top with huge sequins when I was in High School but never made it.  I always kept that idea in the back of my mind and when I was thinking of designs, I thought it would be cool for Spring.  The star shape was inspired by studs on a purse that I own.  It's slightly cropped/boxy silhouette is really fun.  I'm wearing a size small, in case you are wondering about fit.  It will be for sale near the end of this week.

Charlotte Skirt










Top: Forever 21
Skirt: Charlotte Ronson 
Necklaces: F21
Sunglasses: Charlotte Russe 

          Today was the perfect day for this simple outfit.  This is an example of what I commonly wear to the beach, a comfortable skirt and top.  It's hard to see in this lighting but this skirt has an angled layer panel on each side.  That just gives this skirt something a little bit extra, as opposed to the typical A-line.  I'm sure I will be throwing this on a lot this Summer.

Easter Floral










Dress: One Clothing
Shoes: Modcloth
Rings: Forever 21
Purse: Blossom Brigade (not for sale yet)

          
          Happy Easter!  Easter has always been one of my favorite holidays for numerous reasons; Easter dresses, candy, pastels, and spring.  This is the dress that I am planning on wearing this year.  I got it right before I went on vacation.  I just love how unique it is.  The fabric is like floral mesh, but where the flowers are it's solid.  The lining gives it a subtile shine too.  It's just a really pretty dress.  Of course I have to wear my bunny ring, I wear it every year.  My purse is by my soon-to-be label Blossom Brigade.  It's not for sale yet but it will be soon.  If you are interested in getting it early, feel free to e-mail me.

DailyLook: LBD for Spring

LBD with DailyLook
Dl-122912-black-v0 Dl-127814-blue-v0 Dl-126272-silver-v0 Dl-83417_v0 Dl-121767-silver-v0 Dl-79423_v0
          Hey guys! I was inspired by DailyLook to put together an outfit for spring, using a dress from their LBD collection.  When I think about spring I wouldn't normally think about wearing a little black dress but you can wear them year round.  They are perfect for parties, going out, or dressier nights on vacation.  The scenario that I had in mind for this look was when you are on vacation and going out to eat at a nice restaurant.  I chose this dress because it's super modern and not too dressy.  These shoes are amazing because the heel is clear.  I feel like that gives the outfit more of a edgy, playful look.  The purse was chosen to bring a little bit of the tropics into the outfit.  It's more casual and makes you feel like you're on vacation.  I love the way this necklace complements the neckline of the dress.  I think they would look really amazing together.  The rings are just a few more accessories to add to the look.  You can check out this dress and the other LBDs here.

New Orleans French Quarter























Top: Monteau
Shorts: Forever 21
Dress: Forever 21
Sandals: Target
Necklaces: Moon: Forever 21, Circle: H&M
Purse: Kate Spade
Sunglasses: River Island

          New Orleans was our last stop, and where we flew out of.  We stayed in an amazing hotel in the French Quarter called Bienville House Hotel.  It was one of the nicest hotels I have ever stayed in.  The pool was in a super pretty courtyard setting, with tons of balconies, dressed with flowers and vines.  We ate some of the best food in town and went to the oldest bar in America.  I think it's safe to say that the French Quarter of New Orleans is one of my favorite cities in the U.S.  It's so pretty.  Every building is a different color and has it's own unique charm, but still has the old French feel.  It's really just my style.  I had heard that the French Quarter was cool, but I had no idea it is that cool and so big.  Something else that is nice about it is that you can hear music being played constantly, everywhere you go.  Wherever you are there is a band in the street or a person playing the piano in a restaurant.  Even the old riverboat plays music in the dock.  Now I know why everybody talks so highly of this city and it's spirit, and I honestly can't wait to go back.  Also, I am wearing two different outfits here because these are two separate days.
