8 Bloggers to Get Style Inspiration From

If this post doesn’t give you serious outfit inspiration, I don’t know what will! There is this weird thing in the blogging world where bloggers tend not to talk about other bloggers’ blogs. I want to change that drastically. I tend to look towards bloggers instead of celebrities for my favorite style inspiration. I know what you’re thinking, how millennial. Oh, whatever, I’m a millennial and I’ll accept it. Without further ado, here are my favorite fashion bloggers of the moment.


The Chriselle Factor: The Girl Who Got Me Interested in Style

I figure I’d start this epic list with the blogger that started it all for me. I started watching Chriselle Lim’s YouTube videos when I was in high school. I grew up watching her success grow greater and greater. I saw her styling shirts a million different ways to sitting by the hottest runways. Goodness, she is a style queen. I love her high fashion looks with a passion and hope one day I can pull off one of her epic looks.

The Coastal Confidence: The Girl I Learned The Most From

My senior year of college, I interned for Aubrey at The Coastal Confidence. I was and still am a huge fan of her passion for everything New England. Like Aubrey, I grew up in Connecticut and got a good ole’ taste of what it is like to be a New Englander… and boy, is it great. Aubrey has a craft of writing style posts while showing different things you can do in New England. For example, she just did a post on 6 different orchards you can visit in New England. If you live in New England or you simply just love New England fashion, this blog should definitely be on your radar.


Something Navy: The Mom Who Can Do it All

Last year, I found Arielle’s blog via Instagram and I couldn’t be happier that I did. She has by far the cutest little baby and often styles her in equally cute clothes. If you got to her blog, you’ll see a perfectly laid out website. It is literally set up like a blogger’s dream. Her Instagram is always my favorite thing to watch and my favorite style inspiration to see. She also has some killer dance moves!

sd.jpgGal Meets Glam: The Girly Girl

If you’re a super girly-girl you need to go visit this blog. No, seriously, click that link. Out of all of the bloggers I follow, she by far has the most feminine look. Her outfits consist of incredible silhouettes in beautiful, light colors. Plus, her and her husband are the cutest couple on all of Instagram (I’m convinced). They even have matching glasses.


The College Prepster: The Preppy Girl

I’m not going to lie, sometimes it’s hard finding a blogger my age that I love. I’m not the preppiest person, but I love seeing Carly’s carefully planned out outfits. She seems to encapsulate the bold, New England style with a young person’s touch. In my opinion, her best posts are during fall so check them out now!


Mumu and Macaroons: The Upbeat Girl

Every time I see Katy Harrell post on Instagram I cannot help but go visit her page. She just has the best attitude about life. Upbeat, happy, and all around an insightful person. She recently posted two blog posts about her tips and tricks to blogging. If you’re as obsessed with blogging as I am, go check it out.

All Things Blush: Bohemian Goals

Every post Rachel Baumann seems to post are major bohemian fashion goals. I mean just look at these three looks! She seems to always be one step ahead of the game and post these creative, innovative looks. Whenever I’m looking for bohemian inspiration, I go straight to her page. Plus, the pictures she takes with her friends are friend g-o-a-l-s.


Margo and Me: The Ultimate High Fashion Boss

Margo and Me, written by Jenny Cipoletti, is a new blog to me. Like Chriselle, I found her stumbling across the vast void of YouTube. Her videos are extremely elegant and feminine ranging from posh hairstyles to dream vacations. If I were to define the word “high fashion” her name would be inserted right into the definition. Plus, she probably has the cutest french bulldog known to man.

Depending on how each and every one of you responds this type of post, I might start featuring different bloggers I’m loving on my monthly recaps. more and more. After all, we need to start calling out the girlbosses of the world (insert voice of Sophia Amoruso) and start celebrating them.

Who is your favorite fashion blogger? Let me know in the comments down below!

5 Reasons Why You Need Leopard in Your Closet

Hello darling! Do you ever find an item and you’re just like “oh my god, I need this in every color!” That is literally me when it comes to comfy teeshirts. I’ve been obsessed with the soft and sexy tee shirts from American Eagle. I thought I would never find a shirt that was similar to it’s relax and comfy fit. Boy, was I wrong! I found this adorable shirt form Marshall’s for an insanely affordable price (possibly in the $12-$15 range). I’m not one to show my shoulders in this particular way, but for some reason I really liked the way the shoulder cutouts fit. If you want a similar relax fit I’d check out your local Marshall’s. I warn you though… if you’re anything like me you’ll end up leaving Marshall’s with a jump rope, a dainty jar, or dog biscuits for the dog you don’t have. It’s the only store where I’m like oh my god, yes, I need it all. Please don’t even get me started with their home decor section…


So, yes, this post isn’t titled “my fantastic shirt from Marshall’s” but was titled about the delicious wonder that is associated with leopard print. Now, leopard print may seem like an incredible hard pattern/element to incorporate into an outfit but, trust me, it is as simple as jumping jacks.

Leopard print can…

  • Spice up any wardrobe simply by adding it.
  • Create an additional texture to your outfit which creates a unique look.
  • Used as a neutral so it looks interesting paired with other patterns or loud colors.
  • Let you make your all black or all white outfits incredible.
  • Make your out look effortlessly chic.

Now how do wear leopard? Literally, you just put it on and BAM you’re incredible. Treat it as a neutral and you’ll look like a star. But if you’re shy and you want to try a less risky way, look at this outfit for inspiration. You can use neutrals and dainty jewelry to really amplify the magical power of the leopard print. If you want a more daring look, trade in my blue jeans for some bright red pants. Trust me, you’ll be sure to turn a few heads.


But when it comes to fashion trends you don’t have to love them all. As one of my favorite fashion icons, Iris Apfel, once said, “I don’t dress to be stared at. I dressed for myself.” So if you’re not 100% happy with what you’re wearing don’t force yourself! Be happy being you, after all… fashion is about self expression so if yo undo’t love what you’re wearing what is the point?


What do you think about leopard print? This pattern has been in style for as long as time. Do you think it will ever go out of fashion? How do you style leopard if you do like it? Let me know in the comments and if you have a post wearing leopard print put your link down! I’m dying to see how other people style this epic pattern.

35 Funky Ideas for Your New Year’s Resolution

Hello darlings! What is your opinion on New Year’s resolutions? Do you think its a great opportunity or a bunch of lies? Now this post might be a little late but you can always start a new beginning. To me it seems like people are either pessimistic or optimistic about New Year’s resolutions. You’re either the positive, “I’m going to improve my life drastically” or pessimistic saying “I can change anytime I want.” I’m in-between both of these ideas because I like the idea of setting a goal. Yes, I realize you can do that anytime and be successful. I’m not doubting that. However, what I am saying is that the new year is a great opportunity to make a few changes in your life. Nothing drastically, but little things that you can improve on day by day. For example, every year I tell myself “drink more water.” Some days I forget… hey, I am human after all. But most days I remember. Making the New Year’s resolution in the beginning of January helps me refocus my goals and try to make the best out of everything.

There is always room for self improvement no matter who you are. New Year’s resolutions gives you the opportunity to reflect and possibly even make yourself the best you can possibly be. I know that is cheesy and what not, but I think that is why people are so drawn to creating a New Year’s resolution.

Here are 35 funky ideas for your New Year’s Resolutions:

  • Drink more water.
  • Eat more vegetables.
  • Come up with something creative to cook once a week/or month.
  • Go somewhere new once a week/month.
  • Go a different way to work/school once a week/month so you can look at things differently.
  • Try a new hobby once a month.
  • Read a book once a month.
  • Read 3+ scholarly articles once a week.
  • Learn a new word every day.
  • Try new workout classes/routine once a week/month.
  • Try saying “yes” more than “no”
  • Try a different culture’s food once a week/month.
  • Listen to yourself more.
  • Leave the house every day.
  • Sleep 8 hours every day.
  • Dress up more.
  • Compliment at least one person a day.
  • Work on forgiveness.
  • Comment on someone’s blog post once a day.
  • Volunteer more.
  • Plan your outfits the day before.
  • Change your bed sheets more
  • Do 30 squats or 15 push ups every day.
  • Give yourself at least 30 minutes every day to relax.
  • Develop a better Spotify playlist.
  • Write down one thing that made you happy every day.
  • Write down one thing that made you grateful every day.
  • Wear less/more make up (which ever you prefer).
  • Say “I love you,” “thank you,” and “please” more.
  • Learn an interesting fact once a day.
  • Think more about what you’re putting into your body.
  • Think more about where your clothes are coming from.
  • Reflect more on your decisions.
  • Do something you wouldn’t normally do once a day.
  • Tip more.

Maybe pick one or two from this epic list or even come up with your own. As for me, I plan improving myself to my best of ability by working on a few of the ideas listed above. I knew its cliche, but sometimes you need a little push to improve yourself. After all, I’m graduating this spring and will soon have to figure out where my life is headed. When you’re coming up with your New Year’s resolution or even just an idea of how to improve yourself, think of not only how you want others to see you but how you want to see yourself. Do you want to see yourself as a positive, helpful person or do you want people to see you as a funny, charismatic  person? Your New Year’s resolution can help you reach that type of goal.

Some things I’m beyond happy to enter the new year with includes this wonderful wall calendar. I love this wall calendar because each month has different illustrations based on the weather change. You bet this baby is going to be hanging in my room at school as soon as I get back.

If you haven’t shopped for Bath and Body Works candles as of recently I might think you’re insane. Last week, the candles were $10 each and I had a coupon for $10 off $40 so they actually ended up being $7.50 each. The coupon is: F165207 at check out and if you’re in store here is the coupon. Right now the candles are at $11.25 so get them while they’re this cheap!


I recently got this mascara kit for Christmas. You get to try 5 different types of mascaras and then get a full size one once you pick which one you like most. I’m still deciding which one I want to get but this was definitely one of my favorite gifts. If you’re looking for a new mascara check it out in stores at Sephora.


I have this weird obsession with painting my nails and 2017 is no different. I received this nail polish, Tickle My Franc-y , from one of my best friends and I literally cannot stop reaching for this color. It’s been a month and I can’t seem to paint my nails any other color. This pink shade of nude nail polish is perfect for any occasion so definitely check it out.

The Butter London lipgloss in Hot Totty is from Marshall’s. They’re usually $20-$34 depending where you buy it from and what color it is… I scored mine for $5. Like my nail polish, I keep reaching for this lip gloss. It smells good, stays put, is incredibly moisturizing, and it makes me feel like a princess. So yes, I’m slightly obsessed. Be on the look out when you’re shopping at Marshall’s or T.J.Maxx you never know what you’ll end up with.


To stay on track in 2017, I think everyone needs a good planner. Last year, I purchased a similar planner to this one. I love Ban.do‘s planners because they don’t have lines on the days of the week. One thing I really like doing with my planners is drawing on them instead of writing down the event. Ban.do also does a great way to make the planner as interactive as possible by including multiple compliments and activities to do on random pages. You can see last year’s planner here and see all of the wonderful features pictured. The differences between this year’s and last year’s planner is that there are more note pages, different drawings/compliments/activities and there are more stickers that you can use. Kind of a win-win.


I agree with Ban.do when they say don’t look back. I hope this year brings you all joy, happiness, and health. Focus on the positive and hopefully make this year the best it can be. Let me know in the comments down below if you have any New Year’s Resolutions for this upcoming year or if you have any necessities to bring on this wonderful year.

Happy January 4th!

Oh My Gourd, I Love Fall

Hello darling! My awful puns continue on! I hope you love fall as much as me because these post ideas keep coming out of my ears. I really think it is something about the fall colors that surround us that make me so happy. These pictures came out so well just because of the beautiful autumn vines I stood in front of. They made my outfit almost seem like it was glowing.

Despite the our world about to be blasted with tons and tons of icy snow, (we actually received a little bit of snow last weekend) there are some things I am looking forward to in the winter. Some things you can’t experience in any other season.

  • Hot chocolate after playing in the snow.
  • Ice skating for $4 in the center of Albany.
  • Christmas music blasting through the college walls at 2 am.
  • Ugly Christmas sweaters!
  • The first snowfall.
  • Sledding!
  • Rocking your winter jacket like it is nobody’s business.
  • Cuddling up with a blanket and Netflix.
  • Throwing on chunky scarves.
  • Mom making cookies every other day.
  • Driving around to see Christmas lights.
  • An excuse to stay in bed a little bit longer.
  • Being able to wear fuzzy socks whenever you want.
  • Basketball season starts!
  • Getting to wear tons and tons of layers.
  • Not worrying if your chapstick will melt in the car.
  • Everyone being home and merry.

I hope some of those made you the least bit excited for winter!

If not, maybe looking at my outfit of the day will help you remember how great fall has been. For this outfit, I decided to pull out the rich colors from around campus. I needed a neutral color so I picked this incredibly detailed white shirt from Marshalls. I love the mix of pleats and lace throughout this shirt because it adds so much texture to the outfit. Without this eye-catching shirt, the outfit would have been a lot duller and boring. I then threw on this camel, suede vest. I love how laid-back it makes the outfit because of how unstructured it is. I was between pairing this outfit with olive green pants or with a maroon pair I have. Both colors would have looked fabulous with this outfit because of the fall colors they both capture. Since I was going for a more earthly look, I decided to wear these olive green pants from Charlotte Russe. For shoes, these booties are from Marshalls as well. I love the taupe color mixed with the other fall colors in this outfit.


Are you incredibly heartbroken for fall to end? Do you want to cry at the thought of snow falling or you extremely excited about something in the winter? Let me know in the comments down below! At least tell me one thing you look forward to!

Blending in Montreal

Hello darling! How is your week going? The temperature is starting to drop more and more. Last week, I explored Montreal with a few friends. I talked about the actual trip here. I wanted to show you this outfit from the trip.

I’ve been really obsessed with this suede jacket so obviously I had to wear it in another post. I did wear it in my last post and just a warning I am wearing it in the next post! I adore how much it adds to any outfit. It’s dresses up a causal outfit and is so versatile.

I grabbed this American Eagle blouse at Marshalls and I love all the different colors in it. It is one of the comfiest shirts I own! I would love to pair this shirt with mustard pants because it has random mustard pieces in it. However, I think it also would work perfectly with a bright blue shirt or these amazing purple pants. Fun fact: my brothers used to sing this really weird song and it went as so “Logan pink pants porterrrrrr, Logan pink pants porterrrr” and they would continue to taunt me with it for the longest time.

As for the shoes, I’ve been wearing these J.Crew loafers for quite some time. The two tassels on each shoe is really why I’m so in love with them. I think its a perfect added texture to any outfit.



What do you think about graffiti in cities? I really enjoy them when they’re not offensive and they’re beautifully done like this one. In Portland, Maine they actually pay people to paint certain things in the street. I would love to see all of the different expressions scattered on each wall.

As always,

Rome Outfit Inspiration

Hello darlings! I have an interesting post for you today. I’ve created a some outfits based on my favorite pictures taken in Rome. You can see more of these awesome photos here. Let’s get started!


Just looking at this chocolate-coffee gelato is making my mouth drool. I decided to mimic the rich coffee flavor with this beautiful jacket. Since the jacket is open on the bust, it makes the outfit very relaxed and casual. However, the shoes and the clutch have a more sophisticated touch so it pulls the outfit together. This outfit would be perfect for going out with the girls.


This was my first plate of spaghetti and I can remember exactly how it tasted! I really liked this shirt because it kind of reminded me of when you’re little and you get spaghetti sauce all over your nice clean shirt. This outfit needed the touch of red to spice it up. This outfit is perfect for going on a date.


This outfit would not only be perfect for walking around the ancient streets of Rome, but it would be perfect for a casual summer concert. Throw on a bunch of layered necklaces and a jean jacket and put some jams on.


This outfit is great for a casual Friday at the office. By pairing a blazer and heels with the graphic shirt and clean cut jeans it makes a perfect balance of casual and professional.


We walked everywhere when we were in Rome, which is why I had to throw in these flats. If you ever think that a dress is too short, throw on an oversized jacket or a cardigan to cover you butt. It is one of my favorite tricks. This outfit is perfect for shopping at the mall or outlets with friends. This crossbody is great because you’re free to move around… a necessity for shopping.


Finally, my favorite outfit! I love this 70’s inspired outfit because of this super retro bandana. It is such a great statement piece that adds so much to this outfit. Plus the skirt  has these very unique trend I talked about last week I talked about last week.

Let me know what your favorite outfit is in the comments down below!

Prague Outfit Inspiration

Hello darlings! I’m starting a new series on my blog. As you already know, I studied abroad last semester. I ended up going to a few cities and took way too many pictures. I’ve decided to reopen my posts and create outfits from my travels. Here is the first of many…


Isn’t this gingerbread man just the cutest thing in the world? He tasted as good as he looked! To recreate this lovely picture, I picked these adorable loafers from Oasis and paired them with this feminine shirt. I personally love how the tassels on the loafers complements the bow in the shirt. It makes me smile as much as the little gingerbread man.

I’m obsessed with this rain jacket! It’s from Outdoor and Company and also comes in orange and navy. When I look at this picture, I see this beautiful sunset of blues. This is why I decided to pair this classic leaf print shirt with an assortment of blues. I wanted to keep it really casual so I threw in ripped skinny jeans… you can never go wrong with a pair of ripped skinny jeans!

This picture was taken near the John Lennon Wall. I loved how the leaves were changing color and the rustic look of the door. I decided to match this vivid green crop top with a jean skirt. I particularly like this jean skirt because of the scallop detail. I added the camo in this outfit in order to have something a little unexpected. I imagine using it as a cardigan or tying around the waist. In order to soften the look, I paired the skirt with rich caramel colored oxfords and bucket bag.

This very colorful, playful picture is of the John Lennon Wall. Although the wall is actually about peace, I thought I would simulate the edgy colors with an edgy look. I imagine the flannel tied around the waist of this jean shirtdress. I also imagined the shirtdress being slightly unbuttoned in order to show off the statement necklace. To add some color I added this fantastic pair of distressed army green booties.

I know one of the big “fashion rules” is not to mix and match brown and black, but it looks so good! Although the pants are already a statement themselves I wanted to had a little bit more of a pop in this outfit. This is why I added this turquoise necklace. This picture kind of does the same thing with one of the buildings. How beautiful is that sky though?

This wonderful picture was taken from a Starbucks… I know I’m shocked too. The romantic colors in the buildings and the dark roofs made me want to find a darker feminine dress. I paired it up with an edgy purse and earrings to add those darker moods the picture has. However, without going too overboard, I still included feminine pieces like ballet flats and a suede jacket.

This outfit is my favorite of them all. The funky feathers and the statement knee-high boots make this really chic urban look, which is the exact feeling of this marvelous city. If you have a big confidence definitely wear this stunning outfit for a night out on the town!

If you want to see more pictures check out my blog post about Prague. If you want to see how/where you can get any of the items in the outfit pictures click here.

What is your favorite look? If you haven’t noticed I’m really into the 70’s look lately. I can’t get enough of the suede and the denim pieces!

5 Trends to Fall in Love With in 2016

Hello darlings! Last week I posted about 5 Trends to leave in 2015 If I somehow ruined your life and you got rid of your 5 favorite trends… here are 5 new ones to get on board with. I mean… that is if you haven’t already fallen in love with them in 2015.


Sude refers to a type of leather that has as soft, napped finish. Suede can come in many different colors but is most typically a light tan color. Suede is a great addition to your  winter wardrobe because it is a very warm material. It also can add a new texture to your wardrobe and who doesn’t love that?



Leather is always a fashion yes. You don’t have to get it real and you don’t have to get it fake. It’s your preference and I’m not judging you either way. No matter if you typically dress chic, girly, or edgy there is a type of leather for you. Like suede, I love how it adds a different texture to any outfit. It’s a great material to give your outfit a different dimension. It’s also a great material for going out in.



You would think this picture is from back in the day… it is actually from Free People’s campaign right now. 2016 is going to be full of mixed prints, chiffon dresses, suede jackets, fur jackets, and all that 70’s fun. I love it. Who doesn’t love a throwback outfit?



I love this trend/style so much! I talked a little bit about it here, but I just can’t get enough of the bohemian look. Not only is it the most comfortable thing ever, but it’s just so darn comfy. I’m a sucker for comfy clothes that look chic at the same time. I love how lace can be paired with funky patterns or even just a lot of chained necklaces giving an outfit a voice. I said it before and I’ll say it again… I just love this style so much!



Fringe has been out for a while and it’s here to stay! I love how casual it makes an outfit. It’s a nice addition to the bohemian trend. It’s a great statement piece that can add a lot to an outfit.  Although it is a bohemian piece, it doesn’t always have to be styled that way. For example these pictures show it in an edgy, feminine, and classic way.


Do you think there are going to be any more trends I should look out for? Agree/disagree with any of these trends? Let me know in the comments below. I’d love to hear your opinions!

The Best Style Icons Right Now

Hello darlings! I think everyone has a style icon that they look up to. Since I’m always on celebrity style blogs, I’ve started to have a few favorites. Here are some of my favorite celebs that have the best style. Hopefully you get some inspiration before you go back to school shopping! (All these looks are from google searches) Lucy Hale Lucy Hale. If you watch the show Pretty Little Liars then you would know that even on the show she has a unique style. She tends to dress girly or edgy and thats what I love about her style. She can completely transform her appearance by picking between lace or leather. Plus her new pixi cut popped the idea of cutting my hair… Jessica Alba Jessica Alba. Jessica has such a sweet and relaxed look about her. She tends to wear loose pieces such as skirts, loose pants, and oversize flannels. Occasionally she’ll wear a tight dress on the runway but her street style is amazing for that just-threw-something-on look. Venessa Hudgen Vanessa Hudgens. As everyone knows Vanessa holds the crown of the best bohemian look. She knows how to rock a flower crown and some retro pants. She loves her crop tops and breezy bottoms. If you want to channel your inner bohemian look up “Vanessa Hudgens Style” on pinterest and you’ll land the gold mine. Khloe Kardashian Khloe Kardashian. Khloe is my favorite Kardashian. She has such a sweet look and knows how to dress to her body shape. If you want an icon who doesn’t dress as revealing as Kim but still has a curvy body type I would look to Khloe for some inspiration. If you want an edgier look than look at Kim. Kate Hudson Kate Hudson. Kate is fairly simple and always looks super relaxed. I love her outfits for just doing errands. She’s a great style icon if you want someone who always looks put together without trying. (Kind of like Jessica Alba but more of a boyish look instead of girly). Shay Mitchell Shay Mitchell. Like Lucy, Shay also has killer style. Her character on Pretty Little Liars dresses more military and tom boy inspired, and Shay dresses more edgy. I love the way she incorporates leather in her outfits. She always seems to have the coolest pieces mixed together. Kylie Jenner Kylie Jenner. Kylie has such a different style compared to the rest of the Kardashian/Jenner family. She is 17 yet dresses like she is in her mid 20s. She is great style inspiration for a less curvy body type than Khloe. I personally love her outfit in the middle and her hair in the last one is killer. Selena Gomez Selena Gomez. How beautiful is Selena? She has a killer edgy/bohemian look to her. I personally look up to her style the most because it is the most similar to me. She loves wearing preppy clothes, bohemian clothes, and edgy clothes. Literally all of the style combinations put together. Plus she always looks like a boss. Taylor Swift Taylor Swift. Taylor is the definition girl next door. She typically wears sweet and romantic outfits. She always looks so nice and playful! She almost dresses as if she is ready for a tea party or a picnic. Miranda Kerr Miranda Kerr. How chic is Miranda? She knows how to use different types of patterns and pair them together. I love how she pairs leopard and stripes together (it is sort of my weakness). Somehow she makes the simplest pieces look better. Lauren Conrad Lauren Conrad. Similar to Taylor, Lauren has a very girl next door vibe as well. Lauren, however, wears more romantic than sweet outfits. She loves oversize sweaters and button ups. Kortney Kardashian Kourtney Kardashian. If you’re petite then you should look to Kourtney for some advice how to dress your body shape. She loves showing off her legs and knows how to make them look longer than they are. Blake Lively Blake Lively. Obviously everyone dreams of having Blake’s wardrobe. She certainly rules pinterest in her amazing outfits. She rocks every trend out there. Check her out if you’re ever thinking about trying a new trend.

Leonid Afremov Inspiration

Okay, I admit it… I’m officially obsessed with Leonid Afremov. I mean look at him:


(Yes, he wears sweet shirts like that all the time).

I actually just spent the past hour going through every single painting of his. For those who don’t know who Leonid Afremov, he is Russian-Israeli artist who works daily with a palette knife and oils. His paintings are very unique from theory artists because of the palette knife and bright colors in his paintings. Leonid Afremov dealt with a lot of hate because he was Russian and Jewish. He moved to the United States in 2002 and was introduced to Ebay. He sold his paintings for hundreds and even thousands of dollars. Now he has launched his own sight and sells his prints and original paintings. If you want to see more of his paintings click here for his website. 

Listed below are some of my favorites.

Freedom of Autumn Park 


The Gateway to Amsterdam


Sea Regretta


Wedding Under the Rain


Cafe in Paris


The Sun of Sicily 


When Dreams Come True 


After School


White Street




Sunset by the Lake


Long Rain


Dance Under The Rain


Waltz (My personal favorite)


And like any other person… I got a little bit of fashion inspiration from Afremov. Here are some of the summer outfits I have created through Polyvore.

Leonid Afremov series
If you liked this post I did post about Pierre-Auguste Renoir. 
Personally, I think the paintings are prettier but hopefully you get some inspiration from his amazing paintings. When I have a house of my own I’ll hang the Waltz right above my bed. Can’t wait!
