I really love the handbag she has above. And this one.

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

Do you have a favorite one of their products? I’ve tried to narrow it down and I think I very well might like this one (in purple) the best. Visit/shop JumpFromPaper here.

Just a simple little gorgeous fashion editorial from the Lula Magazine archives that is pulling on my heartstrings as of late. I had the hardest time finding Lula Magazine anywhere near me in its early years, so there are a lot of fashion editorials I’ve missed. I’m kind of obsessed with the title ‘The Infinity Lane’. It just sounds really dreamy and wonderful. Perfect for a Friday. Anyway, I heard Issue 20 of Lula Magazine is coming out soon. Who’s excited?!

You Gotta Have Summer

I wholeheartedly agree with this statement from Zara‘s Spring Summer 2015 lookbook/campaign.

Many moons after I went through my Abercrombie-loving tween phase did I discover the world of Zara. To be honest, it wasn’t love at first sight. It took some time for me to understand what all this hype was about (in my mind) a glorified H&M. But now I understand. Oh boy do I understand.

Oh hello pretty jumpsuit and bird print shirt.

I love the way Zara combined architectural details with the clothing to create a truly minimalist experience. Already I have a few favorites from the new collection. (Everything listed here is pretty much bee’s knees material.) Zara just does a really good job making me want everything in general.

Even though the collection has a strong prairie girl/’70s influence, it’s very tastefully done and not over the top.

I could definitely picture myself in this cheery yellow number:

I don’t wear a lot of geometric prints, but this one is beautiful:

And what’s life without more Peter Pan collars?

Actually February is quite exciting. Hints of spring are popping up ’round these parts. The Grammys were this past weekend. The Oscars are in two weeks. BUT February Is Boring is just the name of this cute lil’ video Hello Holiday released last week. And sometimes boring is best.

The Streets of Rome

Photographer Guy Aroch has this soft, muted-hue quality about his work that makes it easy for me to identify his photographs before confirming they’re his for sure. When the folks at Free People sent me a preview of their February 2015 campaign, I was really excited to see Guy Aroch shot the photos! The beautiful photography and clothes along with the backdrop of Rome (hello new place I want to visit!) are pretty easy on the eyes to say the least.

Obsessed with this dress.

The closest I’ve ever been to Rome is watching the movie Eat Pray Love, so this definitely stirs up the wanderlust in my heart.

Starfish girls

One of my very favorite photographers is Michal Pudelka. I first discovered his work on Flickr years ago and I am amazed by how far he has come since then.

Michal recently shot the Valentino S/S 2015 campaign and it’s safe to say I’m in love. There is so much visual tension and story telling in Michal’s work that traces all the way back to early Flickr photographs. It’s interesting how his work has evolved yet so much of it is the same.

These photographs have sort of a Greek mythological Siren quality about them. One of my favorite things about Michal is he always has multiple models in his shoots. I think it adds so much to the story without being overly chaotic.

I saw this photo shoot from two of my pals Ashley and Emily and a few other people and I died. And then I looked at the photos again and I died again. And then I knew I had to share this with you guys so that you can die at how unrealistically beautiful these photographs are too.

These photographs sum up my style so well (okay so maybe I wouldn’t dress quiiiiteee so flamboyantly in real life, but we’re talking aesthetics here, so don’t get too literal on me). Color, but not too much color. Dreamy, but not too much dreamy.
