Design Study: In Full Bloom

Heidi Shenk "design study"

After fulfilling my inspiration needs with an overdose of my fashion mags, my blogroll and some Pinterest, I started to get into some bright florals. It's kind of funny because I'm not one to be super girly, which is what I always think of when I think floral. However, some of the designs that popped out at me are far from girly and are more under the bold and vibrant category. And most are pretty gutsy to pull off. Here are my picks.

I especially love that last look. Just a hint of floral in the scarf with the stripes and texture. What design inspiration have you been loving lately?

Design Study: Bolds

Heidi Shenk "design study" "design"

Baltimore winters are not really something to complain about. We don't get a lot of snow (except for that time we got pounded with two 22 inch blizzards within one week!) and in general, things are a lot better than when I went to school in Syracuse. But now that I'm acclimated to the warm, balmy Baltimore winters, the slightest dip in temperature makes it ok for me to say it's freezing outside. Anyway, these cold temps and rainy days (especially of late) beg for a bit of color. These wonderful bolds helped to warm me up this past week. And there is still part of me that kind of misses walking to class in this every day.
