Eco Fashion:: Conscious Roses






I found this rose bush on the side of a street I drove by frequently.

Call it kissmet, I just so happened to have a shirt that matched it perfectly.


What's even more serendipitous, the shirt is from a previous H&M Conscious collection that I found at a thrift store.


Tonight, H&M is kicking off Eco Fashion Week edition 9 with another conscious collection.



I can't wait to see what the new collection has to offer.



I am sure it will be just as rosy.




Check out the fabulous show schedule for Eco Fashion Week Edition 9

Outfit: Thrifted H&M Conscious collection rose top
Rachel Roy pants from Mine and Yours
Mackage leather jacket from Aritzia
Second hand Louis Vuitton Speedy 25 in Damier Azure print

Silk and Wool






We all have one of these days. You know what I am talking about, a closet full of clothes and nothing to wear.

None of the combos amounted to something presentable.

Usually this happens on my day off, when I don't really know how to dress because I can virtually wear anything. I then get stuck in the limbo of wanting to wear everything.

Part of the dilemma was caused by the fact I just received the new Aritzia items I have ordered. This delicate silk shirt seen above is going to become an outfit whether it likes it or not.

Usually, I would pair this with dress pants for a simple yet polished work outfit. But I wasn't going to work, so I was not going to be dressed in work pants. However, a bunch of other bottoms I have tried on just didn't work for some reason. Frustration is slowly starting to creep up.

Then I remembered this vintage wool skirt that I obtained recently from Pat's Vintage, and voila, and outfit was born.

My spirits immediately went from defeated to elated.

I have definitely had days where I was not digging what I put on and it shows. My entire body language is oozing the discomfort I am feeling.

The right outfit is a powerful thing.

Festival Style with Daisies






Coachella is happening soon. One of these days I would love to participate in this multiday music extravaganza among others. If I were to go this year, this Jac Vanek two piece would be the perfect outfit.

I have always been a fan of sunflowers, I love the meaning this cheery flora embodies. The happiest flower, associated with luck and longevity.

We can all use more of those in our lives. I can't wait until summer time, every year I count down to the days were I can take sunset photos at 9pm and the day seems to drag on forever. This year, I am going to hunt down the perfect sunflower patch.

In the meantime, frolicking in a sunflower covered outfit will have to be a close substitute.
