Festival Ensemble

I know Coachella has come and pasted however, we are still in the heart of festival season. This means fringe, floral crowns, moonies, and maxi dresses are a must.  This festival season I found the perfect shirt, and Im obsessed with it!

swing tunic

You can find this shirt here along with all your festival needs.

There are several ways to wear this top. Pair it with floral jeans for those cooler summer nights and some Chelsea boots.

This tunic can also be worn as a dress with heels for a night out or with cutoffs for a day in the park or that music festival you have tickets for.

With a headpiece, gladiator sandals and a bold necklace this top is ready for any summer outdoor adventure.

When it’s 65 in March

Well people, if you live in the Philly area you know that at one point before the wind became unbearably cold again we were teased with a sliver of spring heaven. It was 65! (Sun’s out guns out am I right?)  What better way to spend the day than avoiding homework to hit the park without tights!!! This hasn’t happened since what, September?

Any hoo, Spring I swear is almost here, and with spring comes all the joys of spring dressing. This is personally my favorite season to dress because frankly it’s the only season both jackets and sandals function together.

(Okay I wasn’t wearing sandals, but I could tell mother nature was trying to trick us.)

Dressing spring is so simple, unlike the complicated layering required for winter. Ditch the hats, gloves, scarves, and parka for a maxi dress and jean jacket. That’s all you need to look fabulous! Accessorize with a statement necklace and some moonies and get outside!

My favorite maxi’s for this season have a great all over print. They make a statement while still looking  effortless.

Take it to the streets and soak up that much needed vitamin D. The winter blues are over…well almost. Spring is around the corner which means, its almost practically summer.

Into the Pale

This week I took at little trip with my friend Kristie to the Philadelphia Museum of Art. If you have not been I recommend you go, I find myself standing in the impressionist wing for hours, and you have to practically drag me out of the Cy Twombly room.

Not only does the museum have fantastic art but fantastic places for photos so we snapped a few. As I sit here with a cup of tea snow has finally hit Philadelphia I realize that I really hate winter.  Winter is such a difficult season to dress. Its cold, its gloomy and so many layers are needed just to function.

So I embraced the pale and here are some of the shots.

Embracing the pale is all about muted color palette and mixing textures with dark accents.

Jewels, fur, lace, curls. Embrace your feminine and flirty side with statement knits and bouncy curls.

Don’t forget your loafers at home. These are my favorite.

So there you have it, kick dreary winter to the curb, go out and see some art in a “sharp” outfit. (Thats what one of security guards told me).

Modern Boho

For the festival fashion enthusiast this terrible thing called winter can put a damper on your crochet maxis and sandals. I myself find this time extremely difficult to dress but NEVER FEAR! I have come up with a great way to keep the Boho in your winter wardrobe and not freeze to death.

Keep it simple, and layer, layer, layer. Here I have on one of my summer maxi dresses, tights, and warm knitted socks paired with my winter boots, a oversized flannel, slouchy jacket and knitted fingerless gloves. To tie off the look I added two layering necklaces and a top knot. This is ready for any kind of weather winter decides to throw at us.

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.

DSC01093

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.

She’s So Fancy: Kristie

IMG_0781

Meet Kristie, my fellow painter and extremely stylish friend. We even have the same boots, and often come to class matching. #twinsies

Here are some facts about her:

-She has the greatest collection of thrift shop flannels. I envy her ability to find so many. You can never really have enough flannels and thrift shops are the perfect place to find what I like to call “real” flannels.

– She cannot live without pizza or cosmetics.  Preach girl!

-She is a list maker. So pen and planner is a must have at all times.

-Her fashion influences come from the underground fashion blogger scene, those bloggers that should be known, or will be known. Their Instagrams are banging, as Kristie would put it.

Kristie’s style is clean and polished with a boho flair. Simple shapes and styles paired with one of kind pieces give her day to day looks a classic edge. I often find myself having extreme closet envy.  Girl’s got style.

Fierce right? Kristie is sporting fall in an oversized tweed coat, with summer’s favorite sundress peaking out, tights and warm socks. Leather Chelsea boots, and feather felt hat complete the look.  This look is effortlessly cool.
