Fashion Week is well underway in New York and our love for spring’s omnipresent color is flourishing. Far from colorless, this crisp, and sometimes soft, shade proved it’s depth and range on the runway – especially when it came to layering tonal separates together. Hold onto those white skirts, pants, blouses and sweaters you’ve been living in all summer. You’ll be building monochromatic ensembles with next season’s wares come 2015, trust us.
For their September catalog, Free People enlisted 29 real life customers, bloggers (including our very own Lauren!!) and models to showcase their fall collection with selfie-inspired snapshots. Jackets, cozy knits, wide brimmed hats, tribal bags, long dresses and weathered boots are layered to Free People perfection. Between September 8th-15th, you can Instagram your own selfie for a chance to win a $1000 Free People wardrobe! Just don’t forget to tag your photos with #FPSelfieEdition to enter!
If you’ve wandered through Le Jardin des Plantes recently, you may have stumbled upon a larger-than-life topiary in the shape of a sleeping bird. It’s quite possibly the most charming structure of its kind, with its green bulbous belly, bright yellow beak, and bamboo feet. Poussin Endormi, or Sleepy Chick, is part of children’s literature author and illustrator Claude Ponti’s second topiary exhibition in the oldest and largest botanical garden in Nantes, France. Just too cute! Oh, and I should mention that this is one of the many articles I’m contributing to Conde Nast Traveler. Be sure to check out my weekly articles, inspired by my travels! xx
