Nothing beats the simplicity in what nature has to offer. The earth laughs in flowers!

Have you ever had the fantasy of running through a flower field in a pretty dress? I think most girls at some point in their lives do. It’s the age of innocence. Girls adorned with little flowers in their long hair, long flowy dresses and aimlessly wandering about in a field of flowers. I find it magical, ethereal, and almost haunting. I’ve always wanted to be that. Well I did just that. Albeit everything shortened LOL. My hair is short, dress is short, and certainly no flowers in my hair, but it didn’t matter because you can’t help but feel wild and carefree when you’re surrounded by this endless sea of vibrant colors. It truly is magical! I’m fortunate enough to make it in on the last day of the flower viewing before it’s closed for the season. If you’ve never been to The Flower Fields in Carlsbad, you should go. Next season that is. But in the meantime take a little time to see what’s already around you because natural beauty is everywhere.

May flowers bloom in all corners of your world. xx

For the Love of Audrey

“I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe happy girls are the prettiest girls."

Today would have been Audrey Hepburn’s 85th birthday. In honor of this well-loved and adored fashion style icon, I pay a little homage by channeling her classic and timeless style. In this case....a hair bun, clean lines, red lips, and a girly skirt.

I absolutely adore this skirt by Topshop. I love how it poofs out and when worn, it sure makes one feel like a princess! Not to say the least, it’s white. Not something I would wear on the norm. Yeah, go ahead and try keeping this clean. Well, one can’t live forever under a rock, worrying about getting something dirty. Get over it. Take a risk! The black and white crop top (croptop??? suck that gut in lol!) has a lovely flower lace detail in the back. It’s delicate, cute and oh, soooo on sale! The bold stripes are not too thin nor too thick, and contrasts nicely with the white skirt. I kept everything black and white, except for the red lips and the pop of the yellow bag to give the look a little more life. I certainly had a little too much fun getting dressed for this day..because after all, as Audrey's saying goes...happy girls are the prettiest girls. And this makes me happy! :) xx
