Mara Hoffman's Summer Safari

Mara Hoffman's SS11 Collection is something I could envision becoming my entire Summer wardrobe. The bold tribal prints, laceup oxfords, bright primary colors, cute topknot hairstyles, and of-the-moment silhouettes are seriously all I want to wear once the weather turns warm here. Photobucket

Rarely can a designer so perfectly balance between the realms of trendy and wearable, but I think Mara Hoffman has it down to an art form.

What look could you see yourself wearing?

I am.. the Matchbook Girl

Photobucket
This page from the new online lifestyle mag, Matchbook, seriously could not describe me better. I love all of these things, and I've decided I pretty much am the Matchbook girl! The mag is amazing, it's full of interior design, fashion, and entertaining inspiration!
This is a collage inspired by all the things she loves.

Kate Middleton: Fashion Royalty

   I'm not sure why, but there's something so hopelessly romantic about Prince William & Kate Middleton's Royal Wedding. Sure, it's a lot of pomp and circumstance, but all the tradition and beautiful dress and ceremony are like a fairytale. I think it's something that people are really getting wrapped up it seems to be like an escape in all the serious things going on in the world right now.
Photobucket
Kate Middleton is certainly going to be a style icon across the world. With all eyes on what she's wearing right now, she hasn't disappointed. My favorite part of her style are the quirky headbands, which I learned are called "fascinators", feather headpieces, and unique hats. They really are outfit completers, and I'm sure it'll have a trickle down effect in the fashion world!

Try this Trend: Sassy Shorts

Denim shorts are a summer staple, but, lately shorts printed w/ everything from florals, to american flags, to dip-dyed fluoresecent shades have been popping up on the trend radar. While I oogled all the outfits from Coachella music festval, I couldn't help but notice all the awesome shorts the style makers were rockin.

Lovers and Nomads: Bec & Bridge

Australian fashion designers (and chic aussies as well) seem to have wearble but trendy style down to an art form. How awesome is this lookbook from duo, Bec and Bridge (Becky Cooper & Bridget Yorston)? Their collection titled, Lovers and Nomads is inspired by, “the eternal traveller, a globe trotter who loves to collect and salvage trinkets and treasures from their adventures".

Between the ombre purple hair, over the knee boots, tie dye, wrist full of bangles and that amazing dream catcher tunic, I'm pretty much obsessing over all that this lookbook contains. Here's a few pieces inspired by their collection of  too-cool looks.Lovers and Nomads

Under the Western Sky

Nope, still not tired of cowgirl editorials, this one from Elle Russia is beautifully photographed; it reminds me of O Brother Where Art Thou! I can't believe how much they're trending lately. I'm head over heels for the leather boots, big metal accessories, peasant blouses, and antiqued white lace, so I'm not complaining.

Let the Sun Shine

Photobucket
I can't tell you how excited I am that I can wear skirts again (okay, well on the warm-ish days). There's something about a full white skirt that just feels like Spring! Moving up here definitely will make me appreciate sunshine, green grass, and flowers sprouting up! I'm about ready for weekends at the lake, festivals and visits from all my college friends (& vice versa!)

Let's Get Away From it All

Don't get me wrong. I've loved spending my last 21 years living in Florida, but it's so huge, it's not very conducive to roadtripping to neighboring states. Now that I've been transplanted to middle America, I'm excited to explore the rest of the country. This summer's goign to call for plenty of spontaneous roadtrips, starting now!

You can't tell me these pictures don't make you want to hop into the car and go get lost somewhere;

Steal Her Style: Sloane Peterson of Ferris Bueller's Day Off

As silly as it sounds, growing up my favorite movie was always Ferris Bueller's Day Off (still is, actually). Even then I loved Ferris' gorgeous counterpart, Sloane Peterson's, style. That leather fringed jacket, those awesome wayfarer-esque sunglasses, & knee high white boot make her too cool for school (literally).
Now that I'm living in the Midwest, maybe I'll have to play hooky for the day and explore Chicago's most famous sights in a red sports car! These are some of my favorite shots of her from the movie:
