    Floral Attraction…

    Florals are like the all- time classics to me. They are so beautiful and are very feminine and ladylike when done tastefully. Unlike popular belief that floral prints are reserved for the closets of grannies or for outdated table cloths, florals are making a come back in Summer 2018 and I am all for it. For my NOLA trip, I decided to ‘dorn one of my favorite floral pieces.

    Styled by NOLA…

    Ever been to a city and you feel like you belong exactly there at that exact time? That was my experience with New Orleans, the culture is so rich and they are o so colorful I was immediately inspired to combine these outfit so I could fit right in. Initially, each piece was to be combined with other plainer outfits but NOLA gave me the confidence to wear color and go bold. As you can see, every article of clothing is a distinct pattern however, this mix and match was successful because I played with the primary colors which were yellow and red hence creating a bold yet cohesive match.…
