I’m super behind the times just now discovering this campaign video Jimmy Marble made for Kate Spade Saturday in December of last year, but it’s not toooo wintry-ish, so I thought I’d share it even though it’s a few months after the video was released. It’s a fun video too, so it’s almost springlike to me. Sharing a video from December in March = justified.

Do you ever get so absolutely inspired by something you can hardly think straight? That’s how I feel after looking at these pictures and watching this video. Those color combinations! And the styling! And pretty much everything about this video is so awkwardly, quirkily and whimsically perfect. Does that make any sense? I don’t know. I’m in visual heaven. *swoon*

PS. I know, I know, I’ve been on a major pastel kick as of late; I can’t help myself!

Beachy Keen

beachy keen - drifter and the gypsy blog
I’ve admittedly never loved the beach. Perhaps that’s not the popular opinion, but that’s just the way it is. Sure, it can be really nice to go there and bask out in the sun for a few hours, but by the end of the day, you’re still sandy, salty and in need of a shower. None of which I enjoy. (Except for the shower. Showers are wonderful, but I just don’t like being grimy in general I guess!) What I DO enjoy are pictures of the beach. Bonus points if they involve retro fashion and cute models. And these photographs by photographer duo Jamie Beck and Kevin Burg definitely fit all criterions.

Do you love physically being at the beach or do you prefer vicariously beach-going through photographs?

Colenimo Spring Summer 2015

I tend to go colorful with my outfits, but sometimes I appreciate a limited color palette. These browns, tans and other earth tones in Colenimo’s Spring Summer 2015 collection are simplicity at its finest.

The collection was inspired by explorer and filmmaker Osa Johnson. She and her husband, Martin, were photographers, naturalists, explorers, and authors who studied the wildlife and peoples in faraway lands.

London-based fashion brand The Whitepepper consistently comes out with the some of the best lookbooks hands down. I did a little happy dance when they released their Spring 2015 collection & lookbook, Child’s Play. (I’m also trying to determine if my hair is long enough to wear in loop braids. I think it needs to grow a little bit more, but it’s almost there!)

Were you into dinosaurs as a kid? I never got into dinosaurs (I was much more of a doll person), but that’s beside the point. The point is these pictures are just too cute! (I need this dinosaur print smock dress in my life!) My favorite is this little video that accompanies the lookbook. I feel like I want to go on a safari now. Ha!

The Anderson Sisters by photographer Gerald Larocque is a cross between Picnic at Hanging Rock and The Virgin Suicides. I love the pale colors and the way everything has a dull haze around it. Not to mention one of my favorite gal pals Alex styled & modeled in the shoot. I can’t quite put my finger on it, but there’s something about the shoot that has an air of despair… a visual tension, which I love.

Fashion things I’m loving lately

As someone who spends countless hours browsing the web, I come across a lot of things I bookmark. Sometimes homes, sometimes food, but lately it’s outfits & style. I haven’t done a roundup of my favorite things in a while, so I thought why not share?

Everything about this outfit from American Apparel. (I’ve been on a real American Apparel kick as of late. Perhaps it’s because they’re having a really awesome sale right now?)

This one is super cute too. I love the purple. (Purple is such an underrated color, don’t you think?)
