WHAT'S HAPPENING ON TUMBLR

hello hello! it's been a minute since i last posted on here! i must confess that lately i've been hanging out offline soaking up the sun and getting some house projects accomplished. but the times i have been on my laptop, i've been spending my time on tumblr. tumblr is hands down an escape from traditional social media, for me at least -- there's way less pressure to post the perfect photo (not to mention the stress that hashtags cause). i also love that there are no ads...for now. it's one of my favorite online sources for sparking inspiration when i'm feeling blah. so, after realizing i haven't posted something new here all month (oops!). I felt the urge to create a visual collection of my latest finds: Lots of good imagery like patterned pants, luxe fabrics, gingham, and cotton candy textures. even sparkly hair!

COUPLES WEARING PRINTS
couples wearing patterns  @themissprints

there is something to be said about a perfectly coordinated couple about town, and aren't these four the cutest? with Valentine's Day right around the corner, it's the perfect excuse to dive into some street style and find inspiration from real life lovebirds.

THE COLLECTION WITH THE BUBBLEGUM PINK FAUX FUR JACKET
   MAJOR PATTERN MIXING AT  JCREW 2016 FALL RTW

 

MAJOR PATTERN MIXING AT JCREW 2016 FALL RTW

the J.Crew Fall RTW Collection for 2016 is pretty great -- classic menswear-inspired pieces, perfectly causal shapes, and really fun styling. the collection comes in a weirdly sophisticated mixture of bright magenta, oxblood, blush, bubble gum pink, pastel blue, cool grays, caramel, navy, taxi cab yellow, and green. did i miss any?

there also is a parka with a pink fur trimmed parka. 

the shooooes make me happy: loafers, lace-up flats, and a pointy toe snakeskin pair (see below) that i'm practically in love with.

the patterns and pattern mixing though....(!). 

snakeskin, argyle, leopard, geometric lines, stripes, houndstooth, and a bunch of different florals.

an abstract floral print on a black background: you really can wear florals in fall and winter. 

then, pair it with stripes.

i think this is such a fun look: a scarf, belt, FOUR different patterns and pastel pants. then throw on a bubblegum pink (and widely coveted) faux fur jacket for good measure. phew. it's so wacky it works.

a cool clash of leopard and Lilly Pulitzer-inspired florals. so into the shape of this leopard coat.

mixing print neutrals: florals, stripes and leopard (lace up flats? heels? i want/need a pair either way).

this makes me want to try mixing two animal prints, like leopard with snakeskin.
