Art to Outfit || Blue, Red, and Pink

May 23, 2013




The story behind this post starts off with this beautiful painting by Laura Dro.  Laura is a very talented artist with such a defined color aesthetic.  You need to see her paintings and prints, they will brighten up your life. This painting in particular inspired this colorful outfit.  I'm assuming those are peonies and well with them everywhere I turn I knew I just had to post it.  You all know I love color and mixing such strong tones is not for everyone, but I think this summery outfit is so cute and wearable.

The shorts!  Tucker is one of my favorite blouse brands.  They just have the best prints.  I just can't get over this one- paired with hot pink!  Wao!  And then add these cute sandals in the most amazing blue and you have a winner.  Let's talk about this Samudra Clutch.  They have a fab selection of beachy images in the best colors.  And they pretty much go with everything.  My mom has a similar one (which I gave her for Mother's day) and she adores it!  So chic and summery.

About the accessories.  Who doesn't love Loren Hope's amazing designs?  They add the right amount of sparkle.  And the company that makes these cute studs is having a super sale right now.  You can go check out their store here.

I haven't told you...I'm in New York....by myself!  My family catches up with me on Friday.  A little mini break of sleeping in, tons of walking, yummy dining, and window shopping are a welcome cure for the soul even if there is no ailment.  I have met with old  friends and have met some online friends, Alison and Sue which I have been admiring from afar.  And can I tell you, they are as amazing and as sweet as I imagined them to be.  I love turning an online friendship into a real life one.

So, obviously, bright and bold colors are inspiring me.  What is inspiring you lately?
