The Bohemian Collective

This amazing project, The Bohemian Collective,  just debuted this morning and I am so in love. No one could have created a more magical world than Laura, from Violet Bella and Roots and Feathers who organized this amazing collective of talented women working together to create inspiration and beauty and for a good cause too.

An excerpt from the site:

“The artists and companies in The Bohemian Collective have joined efforts to create a place where we inspire creativity and giving through our art and vision. This rotating collaboration of artists will orchestrate inspiring, seasonal lookbooks featuring our handmade clothing, jewelry, and home accessories. Our desire is to share the love within our community as far as we can! This is where you can help. We invite anyone to participate by making a donation in any amount you choose which will be allocated to a specific charity each season. All proceeds this summer will benefit To Write Love On Her Arms, a non-profit movement dedicated to presenting hope and finding help for people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury and suicide. To read more about their organization, please read here.”

This is an incredible project supported and created by some incredible women and is worth celebrating. I urge you to simply take a look at their beautiful site, thumb through their gorgeous and inspiring lookbook and spread the word, share with your friends and readers, and if you can, make a donation.

Have a lovely Friday and fantastic long weekend,

Hillery

Top 10 Fashion Trends for summer

This top from Lulu’s is super versatile in that it can be worn tucked, untucked, belted, over a dress, and with jeans. Plus sheer is in!

Solid color crop tops like this one on Threadsence are a great addition to your wardrobe this season.

Love this taupey maxi by BB Dakota on Threadsence. A perfect neutral and would look great with a crop top or color pop accessories.

Here we go with a gorgeous and flowy green asymmetrical skirt from Threadsence.

Super simple tutorial with Alie from With an ie.

Mint jeans are the pastel trend of the century. They are everywhere and everyone wants a pair like the cute little skinny pedal pushers from Modcloth. The question is: do you?

Color blocking, different hues stacked one atop the other. Love this Kelly green blazer matched with the neon, pastel skinny pants from Lulu’s.

This is the perfect lace tank top from Lulu’s to pair with any and everything you own.

This How have you Vanilla Bean? Dress from Modcloth is really a perfect polka dot. It’s a neutral and would be great to match up with a bright polka dotted sweater (like this one) or one of this seasons pop color accessories.

This black and white stripe skirt from free people really fits the bill, you get your versatile maxi (simply pull up over your chest and belt for a simple summer dress.

So what is my number on tip for you? Invest in neutrals and save the trends for accessories and the occasional top or bottom, don’t fill your closet with trends.

My number two? Always quality jeans. I know I didn’t mention them in the trends, that’s because they are a staple closet item. I spend a good hour in the thrift store trying on every pair of jeans in my sizes till I find the right pair. Sometimes I don’t find it, but sometimes I get lucky! And the perfect pair of jeans for 7 bucks? Who could argue with that?

I hope you have fun with it and feel inspired. Remember, neutrals are your best friend, because they make everything look good.
