Trend: Wearing the Woods

I don’t know what it is about spring time, but it always makes me seek out woodland themed garments. Maybe it’s the birth of baby fawns and little foxes around the forest that just make me want to dress up in forest themed clothes and head out with my camera to catch a glimpse of all the flowers and furry creatures. Here are some wood land pieces that have caught my eye. foxscarf

This pretty fox scarf is from Decembermonologue.com. Besides the fact that is it woodland, there are two things I really like about this scarf. It is really affordable. It’s only $10. The second thing that made me want to feature it is that it is book merch. The scarf is a limited quantity and was created for a novel written by December. The story is ongoing at the moment, and it’s about a girl that has a magical scarf with the ability to turn its wearer invisible. This scarf doesn’t have that power, because everytime I wear it I get noticed and everyone compliments me.

 

Woodland Muse Long sleeve Playsuit-BROWN-S


I adore jumpers and playsuits  so I couldn’t resist this woodland muse one that I found on stylemoi.nu. This is definitely a playsuit to visit baby fawn in.
Woodland Creature Long Full Light and Aviary Skirt


Modcloth is a great place to find lovely woodland themed garments and this pleated skirt is no exception. The owl and floral print puts me in the mood for picnics in the meadow during dusk.
Max Mara Woodland print dress


This is the most expensive item in the list, but it is just beautiful. Just looking at it makes me feel one with nature. I think one could easily feel transported to a magical forest with water falls and lush trees with this dress on, even if they were stuck in a busy office with mounds of paper work.

Style Must Have: Nakkashe Accessories

Art meets style with Nakkashe, an accessory etsy shop that specializes in unique, beautiful, boho crochet jewelry. Until now, I had never seen anything like this. But as someone who loves unique one of kind pieces, I was quickly drawn to this etsy shop and I know my bohemian readers will be too.

Here are a few reasons why you should check out this site

1. Handmade: These are hand made items made with love and care. The delicacy in some of the pieces speaks to the talent of the artisans.

2. Perfect for the nature enthusiast: In spring and summer it’s common place to see the style conscious incorporate flowers into their wardrobe, but some of us love to keep that springtime feeling all year long. Nakkashe’s flower accessories are a perfect way to do this, and the perfect gift for the nature lover in your life.

3. Made in Turkey: Those  of us in other parts of the world will love these handmade beauties from Turkey. It’s like getting a souvenir without traveling.

4. Versatile. How you choose to wear the accessories can be as creative as the pieces themselves. You may decide to decorate your hair with the gorgeous floral scarves or wear the same item around your neck. No matter what, you will look like a boho beauty.

I highly recommend visiting Nakkashe if you like handmade unique boho jewelry.

morisocksDSCF2001

If there is one thing I love it’s socks and Japan street styles often incorperate cute and chic socks into their cordinates. One style that often makes the use of cute socks and tights is the mori girl style. I attempted my own version of this style in the video below. I also managed to buy some lovely socks last month that I can’t wait to wear. Check out the video and the links if your interested in some of the featured items.

Mori Girl Accessories

moriaccessoriesMori girl, or forest girl fashion is a look I can’t seem to get enough of. Perhaps it’s because I love woodland elements and animals so dearly, or perhaps it’s another way to keep nature within reach amidst the concrete jungle that often overpowers the landscape.

While doing a full mori girl look can make me look overdone, having some forest and nature inspired accessories is sometimes just enough to make me feel “mori girl.” It’s also a a good way to begin your mori fashion journey as well as tie your look together if you are going a full mori look.

If you prefer green green grass over glitz and glam; sweet little foxes over looking like a sexy foxy lady, and crowns of flowers rather than diamonds then you may like some of the pieces in this collection I’ve put together. These were taken from etsy, as etsy is a great place to hunt down accessories for one’s mori girl look. Not only can you find unique pieces that are handmade with elements right from the woods but you can also find items that take you away to a forest fairytale dream.

It’s also a great place to find less expensive items since many of the mori online shops from japan can be expensive. Knowing my love for this fashion style, I will featuring more items in the future. In the mean time, check out some the fun creations on etsy.

Summer Faves

I know summer isn’t over yet, but I thought it’d be a better idea to do this post now before the chill of autumn caused me to completely forget to write it. Summer this year was a feast. I overate, overspent, and overshopped on multiple occasions. But with all my purchases came some distinct favorites that I wanted to share.

paulachoice1. Paula’s Choice Skin Recovery Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum: I don’t think I can live without product! To say it works well is an understatement. The product claims to fight multiple signs of aging. I’m in my twenties so to be honest, aging signs are not on my check list, but I do want my skin to stay young and fresh and this produt is exactly what my skin asked for. It shrinks my pores, giving me a very smooth and texture. It helped reduce my breakouts and gave my skin a beautiful healthy glow. I love this serum! Regardless of its hefty price, I will continue to buy it.

2. Lush Vanilla De-Lite: vanilladeeliteThis body lotion was a sweet smelling treat for summer. Much like one would expect, it smells like vanilla, but it isn’t an overly sweet cupcake type of vanilla scent; there’s a freshness to it which may be contributed to by the kiwi and coconut water that are used to make the body lotion. I wouldn’t use the this in winter, for I don’t find it to be the most moisturizing lotion, but in summer it’s perfect.

bastarsmoky3. BA Star smoky eye palatte: I reviewed this eye shadow palette here, so I won’t go into too much detail, but it was a summer hit. It’s easy to get a great smoky eye with this palette and the highly pigmented colors stay on for several hours, which is great during the summer when all you want to do is have fun and not worry if your look is still flawless.

lancombhypnose4. Lancomb Hypnose mascara: This has become my favorite mascara. I bought it via the recomendation of the sales girl and I’m glad she suggested it. It  makes my lashes look beautiful! The brush of the hypnose mascara allows you to get long dark lashes that mimic false eye lashes–but without looking fake. It doesn’t irrate my eyes and I don’t have to put on several coats to get the effect I’m going for. It also lasts all day, doesn’t clump, and gives great definition. I can’t say enough about it. It’s just an amazing product.

5. Micha Boots from Alloy.com:michaboot I bought the Micha boot on a whim, thinking they would be a cute item to wear to a summer festival…but…I’VE BEEN LIVING IN THEM! You can read my full review of them here, but I simply love these boots. They do have some flaws, which you can read about in my review but all in all they were a summer hit. They go with almost any summer outfit and I recieved a ton of compliments on them.

6. Mori girl style: Mori means forest in Japanese; mori girl style is a style that is inspired by a girl who lives in the forest or a small cottage in the country side. It’s a style that I’ve become obsessed with! I actually have been dressing mori girl for years without knowing that what the style was called or that it had it’s own subculture (thanks Japan for giving every style a subculture or every subculture a style). Mori girls wear looser fitting clothes, earthy tones, and the clothing pieces often have embrodairy, lace, kitting, or patchwork detail. It is similar to boho, but mori girl has a more vintage look about it. Layering is also important in mori girl. It’s a style that can be hit or miss but it is also can look very prarie girl chic when done right.
