    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 Unlike popular belief that floral prints are reserved for the closets of grannies or for outdated table cloths, florals are making a come back in Summer 2018 and I am all for it.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. It’s a mix on the pattern because I used large and bold prints for both top and bottom which gives a more sophisticated and modern touch.. Also, to balance the boldness of this look, I choose a cleaner/crisper silhouette. Furthermore, these pieces…

Have fun in your process, from preparation to execution. I certainly…
