Lots of Lovely: Flamingos

Maybe it’s because warm weather brings out a playful side in us, but flamingos are definitely having a moment lately. I’m not complaining. They’ve shed their reputation as a tacky lawn ornament and now their unique looks are being embraced. C’mon, I dare you not to smile at the sight of them, with their legs tucked in their bright pink bodies. There’s something beautiful in their oddness, and they bring a bit of whimsy to any outfit or home.

Lots of Lovely: Lace

Perhaps it’s all the Valentine’s Day romance in the air, but I’ve really been gravitating toward lace lately.  Today I’m wearing a lace blazer to work and I feel like I should take a moment to enjoy some afternoon tea or some other Victorian lady activity. Isn’t it funny how an outfit can affect your mood? Even if it’s on a casual piece like a crop top or maxi dress, the delicate embellishment adds some sophistication and oomph to any ensemble. Today’s lace is not your grandmother’s–it’s everywhere now, especially in bright colors, and I suspect it’s not going anywhere for spring. For this Lots of Lovely collection I gravitated toward more neutral tones for a soft, dreamy feel with a cool modern edge. I don’t know about you, but those Anthropologie shorts are going on my wish list ASAP. Enjoy!

Lots of Lovely: Black and White

This week I was watching the Golden Globes when I was inspired by Zosia Memet to create my next Lots of Lovely collection. Aside from her amazing new haircut, which I think looks great on her, her Reem Acra gown really stood out to me for its classic look. Black and white is simultaneously timeless and modern, and I think it’s always a good answer to the “What should I wear?” conundrum we all face from time to time.

Lots of Lovely: Radiant Orchid

I’ve decided to add a new section to voila lovely! dedicated to collections of great finds. The “Lots of Lovely” roundup will focus on a new theme each week based on current trends or whatever is out there that I really like. The first post of its kind is inspired by Pantone’s color of 2014, which is radiant orchid. This purple/pink hue is supposed to inspire innovation and encourage creativity, so maybe some of these gorgeous must-haves will spark your next great idea.
