Floral and Fauna

IMG_4216 This is the dress I wore to my cousin's June wedding. I didn't get a chance to document it while I was in North Dakota, but luckily for me it is the perfect dress to wear to dinner in the hot Arizona summer. Besides the pretty floral print, I love the leg slits, v-neck, and strappy back. Details like this are what makes this maxi have a 90's vibe.

For a summer wedding, I don't think you need to wear with anything too fussy, which is why I opted for sandals. I finished off the look with my grandmother's vintage clutch (which may have actually gotten more compliments than the dress!) Finally, although I kept it simple at the wedding, for dinner I piled on an arm cuff and a couple interesting rings.

Rugged Florals

IMG_3391 I thrifted this amazing skirt at the Goodwill Outlet the other day. At first I thought it was too granny and didn't see the potential in it. However, I chopped it into a hi-low style, and the lightweight material kept me so cool all day! I paired it with a simple black tank that wouldn't compete too much with the print, and a studded leather vest to add a touch of interest.

Today was super exciting because I was able to leave the house for the first time after my surgery, and I bought a new lens for my camera! Unfortunately I had my camera on the wrong setting so the images are a little fuzzy, but I'll have that issue fixed tomorrow!

"Bohemian Rhapsody"

20130419-200844.jpg

Although Coachella isn't really my type of music, I will admit that all of the festival fashions I'm seeing on my favorite blogs and Instagram accounts are influencing me! I normally wouldn't go in such a bohemian direction, but when I slipped on this bell-sleeved lace dress from my closet (a past Christmas Eve dress) I couldn't help but pair it with some accessories that put me in a flower child state of mind, rather than my typical studs and spikes.

To get really cliche on you, I chose "Bohemian Rhapsody" by Queen as tonight's outfit track, just because I rarely dress like this. Listen along below while you view, and enjoy!

Also, I know I promised that today would be an art post, but I couldn't help but share my outfit with you guys! Sometimes it is fun to dress out of your comfort zone and try a different style!

ART_Dreamcatcher Canvas

IMG_0069 Today I wanted to share a canvas piece I did for a friend a while back, but finally got the chance to photograph this morning. I finally took the plunge and bought a new camera yesterday, so I was able to get some good shots of the painting.

My friend asked for large wall art for his room. We decided on a dream catcher, but he gave me the freedom from there. I wanted warm toned colors that were natural and desert-like. I also ended up including some blue for contrast. He now has it hanging in his room, and it gives it a lot of color and character!
