Combo Platter

December 14, 2011

A bunch of you have asked me to share more photos of this outfit from my post a few days ago, so here you go! This was easily my favorite outfit of the three I shared, probably because of the soft tones that are juxtaposed by the edgy metallic blazer. Love a good combo like that – kind of like combo platters at fast food restaurants. You gotta go combo or else it’s just b-b-b-boring!

Ok, enough of combo platters.

Though I’m not one to repeat outfits that frequently, I have a feeling this one is going to come home to San Francisco with me this weekend because it’s calling for a holiday party STAT!

My style and inspirations are always developing and changing, and this month I’ve been all about bohemian, gypsy flair. A lot of my style is based around whatever I feel most confident in that day and lately I’ve been flocking toward simple silhouettes with lots of jewelry and bulky boots. This is probably because I’m beyond sick of my summer clothes and impatiently awaiting fall. TICK TOCK HURRY UP!

So, as I begin to work on my Fall mood board I thought I’d share a few images of the things that are inspiring me this season. Feathers, the moon, the 70s, and worn in favorites – maybe I’m more predictable than I thought?

While I may not be the most comfortable person in nature(I am horribly afraid of snakes), when it comes to watching and learning about it I am obsessed. I am constantly reading National Geographic magazines, checking out the latest videos uploaded onto Discovery Channel’s website, and go pretty much radio silent during Shark Week. It is thus no surprise that I am completely immersed in Discovery Channel’s latest show LIFE.

What I find fascinating is how much nature plays a role in fashion. Animals, insects, fish, plants, etc. are always influencing designers and their collections. Below I’ve compiled some clothing inspired by nature and all of it’s wonderful creatures.
