Cheers!

Happy New Year everyone! This NYE was certainly one for the books at my house, mostly because I was determined to NOT have another NYE like the fail of a fondue night last year. This year I created a photo booth to document all the crazy that occurred during the holiday festivities (and of course all the fashion).

Over the course of 48 hours an estimate of 60 people came through our house for our annual Macaroni Party and New Years Eve festivities.

We had our fair share of silly:

My NYE look took several different routes over the course of the festivities. Anywhere from flirty fishnets and floral to lace backless dress and red lip. A NYE look is all about glamour. It’s the one night to get dolled up and enjoy yourself. Grab some crazy accessories. Pull out those high heels and strut your stuff. Personally, this year my favorite look was floral mini dress, red lace fishnets, paired with a chunky heel and shaggy coat. Jumped right into 2015 in style. Often my NYE sets my palette for the new years style, I’m thinking there’s a lot more floral in my future.

May your 2015’s be as swell as you are. Stay fabulous, stay silly and most of all get ready for a whole new Proprium Floris in the coming new year!

‘Tis the Season

Happy Christmas Eve Eve everyone! The Holidays are upon us and what better way to celebrate then with sparkle, sparkle, and more sparkle. This year I’m ringing in the Holidays with full sparkle and so is my sister.

The Holidays are all about making a statement, whether with sparkle, fur or both! Here I have a Sparkle dress and shaggy coat paired with knee high socks. Annie took a more subtle approach with lace accents on her maxi sweater with an all over lace dress. She added the sparkle with a crown to top off the look.

Braids and curls are a classic way to get all done up for any holiday gathering whether with family or friends.DSC01103

Keep the color palette simple. Reds, Greens, Golds, Silvers, Blacks and Whites. Any of these combinations can be festive but don’t have to scream holiday if you’re attending a more low key affair and you don’t want to break out the ugly sweater.

Happy Holidays Everyone! From my family to yours.

Weekend Getaway

This past weekend, I had the pleasure of going home and taking a break from the busyness of life. Autumn is the perfect time make time to relax. Its a time for warm sweaters, big hugs, and a mug full of warm chai. It’s a time for apple orchards, hayrides, and fall leaves. Autumn is a time for family dinners and weekend getaways. And I did just that.

Life can get extremely stressful, and it’s okay to take a break every once and while to simply soak up the little things you miss while away at school. I missed New York country air, upstate chicken wings, real crisp apples and my mom’s applesauce. I missed cuddly puppies, my own queen sized bed and stepping outside to a vast expanse of fields and cows.  The city is an amazing place immersed in culture and art however, the chaos of it all had the small town girl inside me longing for silent nights.

Weekend getaways are my new favorite.

So as the weather gets colder and the leaves change color soak up the last of your vacation day or even play a little hooky to take a weekend getaway.

How I Spent Memorial Day

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

This is where I spent my memorial day weekend. Peaceful right? That’s because there was no cell phone service. This little place is found at the bottom of a waterfall in upstate New York.  I took the long 5 mile hike to the top and this is what I found:

Liberating right? I can tell you I’m extremely afraid of heights but this site was extremely incredible.

The water was chilling but on an eighty -degree day nothing was better than a wade in the water creek with your best friend, family and eight doggie friends.

This is the good life. And the freedom I experienced yesterday wouldn’t be possible without the people who served/ are serving in the armed forces protecting this country. So thank you for a great day, and every free day I experienced. Your service is much appreciated.

If you get a change, take a walk, a road trip to a place where you don’t get cell phone service. Find some beauty and explore it. Hike up that mountain even if your out of shape. Breathe in the fresh air and bring those you love. It’s well worth it.
