Going on a fashionable picnic

Unless you’ve been living under a rock lately, you’ve probably noticed that gingham is popping up EVERYWHERE. Wearing such a bold pattern can sometimes be intimidating – we know Betty Draper was killing it on Mad Men but we also don’t want to look like a picnic table. The struggle is REAL – here are a couple pieces that you can easily incorporate into your current wardrobe without worrying about being too trendy or too flashy!

WARDROBE SNACKS – When Your Strawberry Waffers Match Your Pantsuit

WARDROBE SNACKS, a collaboration between photographer Kelsey McClellan and prop / set stylist Michelle Maguire where the wardrobes perfectly match various foods. This awesome project was inspired by Michelle’s stepdad watching TV while resting a sandwich on his thigh- sans plate, in between bites; a commuter cramped on a crowded bus trying to get something out of a bag; someone on a lunch break eating from their lap on a park bench. The attention to detail is so well executed- I can’t wait to see what else these two have in the works..

WARDROBE SNACKS – When Your Strawberry Waffers Match Your Pantsuit

Picked Flowers

Yesterday marked the April Full Moon, or better known – the Pink Moon. What’s so special? Well, last month’s full moon was meant to encourage the celebration of springtime again and April’s full moon is meant to encourage you to take a more active role in the changes going on around you. May it be on a personal level with something you’ve been working on at home or work, or maybe it’s just the acknowledgement of the more and more flowers starting to bloom and the color finally starting to come back into the drab landscape. I don’t know about you but I’m psyched. Yey for flowers, green grasses and warmer, longer days – and on that note, these are some of my favorite Spring florals to get you just as excited, enjoy!SPRING FLORALS copy
