Flower Power

2 May

As I sit at my office desk, I look out the picture window onto a sea of gorgeous foliage and flowers dancing in the warm California breeze. Although my husband and I have carefully chosen each plant for its mediterranean style, color and fragrance, a few sprout up all on their own. This sweet coral rose and vibrant orange daisy are two of this season’s new comers and the inspiration for today’s look.

Style Tip  ::  If you’re a Dettamoda follower you already know that I am a fan of layering because of the detail it adds to a look. Layering is also perfect for spring and summer days. As the weather changes throughout the day……layer on, layer off. Similar to “wax on, wax off” but not. If your under the age of 35, rent Karate Kid and you’ll know what i’m referring to.

    I have been inspired by your looks and channeled you while creating look 3 for my LBD challenge. :)
    It was your use of a lime green vest that got me thinking.
    Thanks for being so inspirational!
    Cheers,
    Laura

      Excellent to hear Laura as that is my goal……to inspire others to think outside their current style.

      Your LBD posts have been creative and quite stylish. I look forward to seeing what you pull together the next 4 days.

        Thanks Paula!
        I have found that if you can’t run to the shops to buy something to make a look work, you need to work at being creative!
        Here’s hoping I can continue to be creative for the balance of this week!
        Cheers,
        Laura
