Bohemian Rhapsody

Hello lovelies!!

I have this fascination with all things bohemian. I really thought I would outgrow this “phase”,  but it has definitely stuck with me.  To me the bohemian lifestyle represents a carefree world, one full of adventures and the unpredictable. A life of letting go of all our burdens and embracing what we already have.

Another way to add a hint of bohemian chic is to hang interesting lanterns in different shapes, styles and colors. These can live anywhere in your home. From your living room or bedroom to an outdoor balcony or porch.

Pillows and cushions featuring festive embroideries add a nice element to a living room sofa and chairs. If you have a small home, large floor cushions add extra seating for guests as well as look pretty.

If you are a do-it-yourself type of girl, there are a lot of really amazing crochet patterns online via ravelry as well as personal web sites. The Sophie’s Universe rug has been all the rage among crocheters since Dedri shared her pattern in 2015. Here’s a link to her site to learn more…

Here is just a sampling of ways to bring this look into your own home. Do you have a favorite bohemian item or decorating tip? I would love to hear from you.

Pantone’s Greenery

Hello dolls,

As you may already know,  the color authorities Pantone, announced Greenery as the color of 2017. This vibrant yellow green invokes images of nature’s first foliage. Use it as a neutral and mix with other spring colors or alone and it becomes the showstopper.

At first I was intimidated by this color wondering how in the world was I going to wear it? Mr. Michael Kors leaves nothing to guesswork. This gorgeous printed dress below in shades of green, white and blue are all I needed for inspiration. I love the belted vest!

What if you are still leery of wearing such a bold color? You can simply incorporate it into your wardrobe via nail polish or accessories.  Essie Nail Polish is one of my personal favorites because it is 5 Free which makes it safer for you as well as the earth.

Maybe you would like to bring the outdoors into your home. Home decor has a great variety of ways to add Greenery to your home.

Pantone says Greenery is “symbolic of new beginnings” and indeed Spring to me represents a fresh new world full of beautiful possibilities. I hope my post inspires you to embrace this color and would love to know how you are using it in your own life. As for myself, I few surprises up my sleeve. But you will have to return to see how I am using Greenery.

I am so excited about the recent Spring collection from Temperley London. With a bohemian vibe it boasts billowing frocks in bright, cheerful colors and rich embroideries. Sleeves were full and frilly.

Hello lovely!
I hope you are experiencing some pleasant weather where you live. It has been extremely warm here in the Pittsburgh area. There has been sunshine and a slight breeze which means the winds of change are here. Springtime will be here soon.
 I thought a pretty style board was just the thing to inspire us all. What are you looking forward to wearing once the weather breaks? I am excited to begin wearing pretty sleeveless tops and open toed sandals.
This spring expect to find an abundance of pretty floral prints. And of course loads of greens which by now you already know is Pantone’s ,the color experts, color of 2017.
I can’t wait to share more with you dear reader. In the meantime, stay stylish and blessed.

Georges Hobeika RT SS 17

Hello dolls!

As winter chases us indoors, unless you are a snow bunny, we look forward to the future. And the future lies in the awakening of our dear earth and the arrival of spring. Oh the smell of the earth all dewy and warm. And nature’s peek at what’s to come in the way of tiny buds popping up from the ground. It’s simply my favorite time of the year…

Another thing I love about this season is the multitude of beauty in the form of haute couture. Today I would like to share some inspiration from Lebanese designer Georges Hobeika.
