waiting to bloom

Like most of the country, we folks here in Georgia are totally done with winter. Every now and then we’ve been blessed with a warmer day (warmer meaning actually hitting 50 degrees) and you bet your butt we take advantage of it. The outfit seen here was worn on such a day and it felt unbelievably good to only have two light layers on!

There’s something I haven’t been telling you, but you may have guessed it by now.

flared layers

I’ll admit it.. I’m a little bit obsessed with flared jeans. I wish they were more popular than the contemporary skinny standard, but every now and then I just don’t even care. I love them! My favorite pair is surprisingly from Target. Yeah, I said Target. They have the perfect amount of stretch and don’t look too retro. They go great with anything and today I pair them with one of my new favorite tops from Anthro. Flared top with flared jeans? I say yes.

lady crush: gentry adams of girl meets bow

When I say I have a lot of adorable friends, I ain’t exaggerating. I’ve met so many uniquely stylish women that have influenced the way I dress and carry myself. Confidence can be contagious and having a network of amazing friends to back me up is seriously priceless. I’m so thrilled to bring you some New Year’s Eve outfit inspiration from one such lovely lady in my life, and her name is Gentry. It’s no surprise to me that she recently began her own style blog, Girl Meets Bow, since she’s the picture of effervescent charm and effortless class. I couldn’t help myself from jumping on the chance to have her and her words appear here. Lucky for me, she’s also as sweet as can be. I think I see a new style-slash-interview series beginning…

green, black, and rose gold

I really don’t wear enough color. And I don’t know why! It’s not like I don’t have it; my closet is plentiful with different colors and patterns, but when it comes to actually getting dressed I just seem to always reach for neutrals. Perhaps it’s laziness, a desire to blend in easily, or both. Whatever it is, I’m going to try to bring more color into my life – through my wardrobe and through my artwork. I decided to play around with this color palette because while it’s seasonally festive, it’s not screaming ho ho ho.

I’m totally feelin’ on these psychedelic designs by Melbourne based artist Emily Green. Watercolor patterns are all the rage these days, but hers seem especially fresh, straightforward with a lovely clarity of color and shape. emily-green-print-strength_in_numbers_collage_one

ponce living pop-up

If I had more money, it would be spent SO well. While I know it’s super tempting (and also a necessary evil) to be a part of the hordes rushing to the big box stores for the holidays, it can often feel so clinical and nerve-wracking to say the least. To get a gift that’s really special, I suggest you visit some smaller businesses to find that special something. One such shop here in the A would be Ponce Living by Tracery Interiors.
