Green With Envy

Friday, March 16, 2012
In honor of St. Patrick's Day tomorrow, which is by far one of my favorite holidays of the year, I decided to create this little inspiration board. Full of rich greens to help put us in the mood for such a festive holiday. This holiday stands out to me in such a big way, obviously because I am Irish it means a lot to me, but it's more than just getting wasted. It's helping to celebrate a fantastic culture of people that are friendly, fun, and tough. I am really proud to be Irish and it's so much fun to have a day to celebrate that heritage. I've been to Ireland once in my life and it was beyond anything I could have hoped for. I know I'll go back someday in the future, but for now I can stand with looking at pictures of rolling green hills and beautiful scenery.

6 Things...

Thursday, March 8, 2012
  1. Over the shoulders

    Noticed this a lot during every Fashion Week, but almost every person who was photographed had some type of coat or jacket draped over their shoulders. It’s a simple, yet chic accessory to have. It’s such a simplistic touch to an outfit, but damn these women look good.

2. Cropped pants

While cropped pants have always been in style, we have Audrey Hepburn to praise for that, but I’ve noticed it’s gotten pretty huge this year. They slim down legs, they look great with pretty much any type of shoe, and they will never got out of style! What’s not to love?

3. Loafers

Not just for men anymore! These stylish shoes have been popping up everywhere, and I have no problem with that. I’ve seen it a lot with street style photographs, so it’s slowly getting into the mainstream. Noticed a lot of retailers have started selling them also, calling them loafers or ‘slippers’! There are different colors, patterns, some even have tassles! I highly recommend adding these to your wardrobe.

4. Braided hair
Braided hair has definitely come a long way from just the basic french braid, to something I could never have even imagined someone could do on their own. Obviously celebrities, who have brought these hairstyles to red carpet events, have hair stylists to help them out but everyone else has to fend for themseleves. Google and YouTube are our friends, ladies!

5. Neon

Now, I know this word can cause alarm, but let’s take a breath and realize what we can do with this trend nowadays. From fashion, to accessories, and even nail polish! There are tons of ways to add this pop of color to your wardrobe, and you don’t even have to go crazy with it! A little can go a long way with neon, so be careful and not go overboard.

6. Floral and geometric patterns

Since this MSGM collection is from the Pre-Fall 2012 collection, I’m guessing these two bold prints are going to be around for awhile.
