Neon Nuance.

IMG_8363I don’t switch it up too much but I do love bright colors and a blazer is the perfect piece to shake up an outfit with.  It’s a fun cut and an awesome bright neon orange.  I also love mixing casual with fancy, there’s something to be said about being comfortable enough to make it through the business day but chic enough to know you didn’t just throw something on.

Get your neon on!

Neon Indian Summer.

There’s something about the warmer weather that makes us want to dress in brighter colors.  We have a fun time mixing neons in order to make a bright outfit come together. Here is a little color blocking to inspire you today!

Full Bloom.

IMG_8858With this beautiful coming weather, also comes some beautiful full blooms.  My landlord has a fantastic green thumb and the backyard is always looking full of life and color.  The gardens looked so beautiful the other day, I took some time to go out there and shoot some photos of all the beautiful flowers she has planted.  It doesn’t hurt to have such beautiful views right out your window first thing in the morning 🙂

Some TLC to a garden can really bring it to life.  I’m not sure how exactly she maintains these gorgeous flowers but they look magnificent.  Happy Friday!

Heart Beet Salad

It’s super important to fill your body with delicious and healthy food when you can. I love salads because I can mix and match whatever I want. Here is a simple salad that I made last night!

Make sure you dress with a vinagrette, I made a lime ginger basil which was super simple and very delicious!
