Flirtatious Fuchsia- Coming Home

As i’m sitting here on my pretty little Parisian balcony, i’m quite saddened that today is my last full day here.  As I talked about in yesterday’s post I was feeling a bit homesick, but now that the day is finally here i’m feeling mixed emotions about leaving this beautiful city. Words cannot describe the inspiration I found in Paris, and it was just what I needed to bring back home . Sometimes we get caught up in our daily routine, and can only grasp the tangible things in front of us. As I talked about in my 2013 recap post HERE, there is nothing more humbling than traveling. The more I travel the more I realize how much I don’t know. I will save more of my Paris experiences in my Paris posts soon to come, but I couldn’t think of anything more appropriate than this outfit post to end my travels here. I shot these images with karen the week before heading out to Paris, and as we were scouting  locations we somehow ended up here. In the midst of downtown LA’s urban streets, there was one fully blossomed tree  against a matte black wall…it was entirely unexpected and completely captivating. One thing I learned from this trip to Paris is that inspiration starts from within, and is our own responsibility to find that one blossomed tree.

Gorgeous pictures. From the incredible necklace, to the vibrant magenta pink top, to the unique clutch, to the beautiful flowers, and my favorite part the “stay fancy” graffiti, I love this blog post. Your style continues to inspire my daily outfits. Thank you.

Can’t wait for spring :)

Monica ( March 5, 2014 at 2:18 PM )

You always pick such great locations for your outfits. The fuscia sweater and heels matched perfectly with the beautiful petals.

As an artist, inspiration really does come from anywhere. I think it’s really important to stop and really take the time to soak in all that is around us. It’s so easy to forget about how easily we’re inspired by nature when we always run around frantically from job to job. Anyway, that’s for the inspiring post!


Maggie ( March 5, 2014 at 1:39 PM )

Cannot decide whether I like the fuchsia color of your shirt or these photos more! Both are gorgeous!

Sabina B ( March 5, 2014 at 1:36 PM )
