Styling inspiration:  I am loving all of these looks because they seem pretty effortless.  I'd legit wear them -- it's like upgraded Madewell and yes, French-style.   Want to know a secret?  This is what I wish Isabel Marant is, especially with the outerwear.  Just sayin'

Which one is your fav?  Also, what's your opinion on this model?  She puzzles me...

Make Your Bed: Urban Outfitters Bedding & Duvets



We all have beds.  (At least I hope my readers do.)  We all want to make our lives more beautiful.  (Maybe?)   Urban Outfitters is giving bedding material companies like Dwell a run for their money.   Unbelievable how many amazing duvets there are right now.  This bedding makes me want to buy a 10 room mansion so I can decorate each room around a different duvet or maybe I'll start a hipster bed and breakfast/hotel.

So Damn French: Comptoir Des Cotonniers



Do you see double?  Ha!





How is this brand so damn French?  Even their name is overwhelmingly and superfluously a mouth-full of French: Comptoir Des Cotonniers. I mean, in every single way, it is so quintessentially what I imagine every single French girl in my mind wearing.  (Why do we do that?  Idealize French women so much?)  There are so many looks, it seems like this brand honestly must have a very creative director and a very indecisive editor, which makes sense.  It's like H&M on French crack.  There are so many looks and they've named each and every one of them under a certain type of "style."  I kind of want to go to NYC tomorrow and blow a bunch of money at their store in soho.  Ugh, So-No.

What are your favorite looks?  You can go to their site and find out what your "style" is.

Mara Hoffman





I just really like her prints.  I know my posts may seem random but they're basically a collection of things I'm attracted to and hopefully you are too!  I'd like to wear these everyday, they look perfect for the summer.

Mind Blowing Prints: Clover Canyon Resort 2013

    






So you know that point at the end of the summer where resort has been released and stores are only carrying fall and you're clamoring for the temperature to drop?  That's where I'm at.  The illusion of resort makes me think, though it be for next year, that I could somehow wear resort right now.  While everyone  is (or maybe I am?) trying to justify wearing boots or a jacket, I'm just sweating in cambray dreaming of resort.

Getting a print + color combination is so hard that when it's right, it's so right.  Clover Canyon is gaining a lot of momentum with their silhouettes, colors, and most of all, prints.  I'm seeing a hint of mexico, barrios, and the ocean in this collection?  Too lazy to read up on what the inspiration / concept actually is.

Let's be real, Clover Canyon's a/w is not so great.  I feel like they are one of those brands that are stellar during s/s & apparently resort but their prints and patterns don't translate well into a fall palette or winter materials.  With that said, eat up these resort photos because they.are.not.available.to.you. until you withstand the brutish winter months ahead.  Total tease.
