Deep Sea Coral Inspiration

When it comes to design, fashion, and home decor; the word “coral” evokes a bold color that balances beautifully between red, orange and pink. But today we’re tackling the topic of coral, the living and breathing aquatic invertebrate responsible for some of the most beautiful abstract patterns found in natural. We prefer just to use these beauties as inspiration, as we think the real thing belongs in the sea. Check out some of our favorite iterations of this amazing creature that look like they were plucked right from the reef! M&J Trimming - Blue and White Coral PrintM&J Trimming - Whit Coral Sculptures

Khaki Clothing Inspiration

When it comes to summer style, many of us want to jump to extremes. And while we all love a dose of neon, there’s something refreshing about a cool neutral that look like it was taken right out of safari. We’re loving khaki for summer because of its versatility and neutrality. Plus it can make you look like you’re the most stylish glamper on the planet. So whether you’re rocking a light jacket, a pair of pants or even a dress; embrace the khaki this summer.Ralph-Lauren-Spring-2015main.original.585x0The looks at Ralph Lauren killed it in khaki with accents of lemon yellow!

Natural Iridescent Inspiration

Iridescence is an almost magical phenomena which occurs when the surface of an item reflects different colors at different angles. You may have seen iridescence used in fashion recently, especially where accessories are concerned. We’ve been seeing iridescent accessories everywhere, and it’s another case of art imitating nature. Check out these photos of iridescent inspiration that come in the form of animals, insects, minerals and more!

Urban Patio Inspiration

9

Summer in the city is a glorious thing. The weather is perfect for exploring, there are plenty of events and festivals happening on any given day, you can rock your favorite outfits without hiding behind layers of wool, and everyone just seems a little bit friendlier. But, despite the intoxicating pull of the city, you’ll find yourself wanting to hang back every once in a while and relax at  home while still enjoying the season. Unfortunately, one of the drawbacks of living in most cities is the lack of personal outdoor space. Luckily, there are a tons of ways to make that tiny patio or balcony an at-home oasis this summer!

The LWD

3

We all know about the classic LBD, the little black dress, but what about it’s fun and flirty summer-specific cousin, the little white dress. This season bloggers, bohemians and beachgoers are going crazy over the little white dress. The ideal LDW is light enough to use as cover-up on beach vacation, can be dressed up to wear to dinner out, and comfortable enough to be worn when exploring the cobble-stoned streets of any exotic city. Whether it’s slinky, lacy or flowy; there is a LWD that deserves a spot right next to the LBD.

Cute Cover-Up Inspiration

6

One of the best perks of summer, besides being able to finally whip out our sundresses, is the ability to enjoy the outdoors in a totally different way. We’re talking about heading down to the beach, pool or other comparable large body of water. Now besides sunscreen, a straw hat, and a cute Triangl bikini, there’s only one thing you need to make your beach day a success. A cute cover-up of course!
