Summer Patterns

Lately I’ve been into drawing patterns and greenhouses. I’d love to design home accesories, t shirts, and dresses with these designs. Although summer is not my favorite season, I love the lush plants that bloom this time of year and I’m inspired by them. 💚

Inspired by Missoni & Sunsets

I feel like Missoni prints are timeless. The cute zigzag pattern & bright tones never get old. I love and respect their family & brand. 👨👩👦 Rug from Missoni Home

Sunset colors are so beautiful, and some of my favorite color combinations. God probably planned it that way.

What’s been inspiring you lately?

Peachy Keen

Peach, coral, and that whole color family is pulling on my heartstrings right now. Also, so is Adobe Illustrator. I just wish it wouldn’t crash as much as it does. 

What’s your favorite color right now? 🎨

Current Color Mood: Yellow

Sunny happy yellow is cropping up everywhere & I’m loving it for summer. Who says you can only wear yellow during the day? Wear it to go out, for a wedding, etc.

I’m also loving slit dresses. I love that it’s okay to be a little cheekier during the summer too. 

Pajama // Lingerie Inspired Style

One of my favorite trends this season and honestly of all runway trends is pajama & lingerie inspired style. 

I’m definitely pining for a set like the one I drew above.

Is the Pajama Wrap Jumpsuit by Asos above not the cutest thing ever? 😩
We’ve seen this trend crop up before. Last spring it was a hit and this year more racier styles are taking over the trend. As noted by Vogue Italia, 

“Bra, briefs, garter belts and (lots of) body suits. Style is in the details…”

We’ve definitely seen the bralette and bodysuit trend for a while. 90s grunge style was embedded with racy punky babydoll dresses a la Courtney Love. 

I love the juxtaposition of a strong boot with a soft feminine lacy dress.

Super cute way to wear a bralette found on stylegee.com

The modern take on lingerie inspired dressing is fashion-forward as well. Apparently, the trend will continue to appear and give its fans something sexy to slip into fall/winter 2017. Vogue Italia also writes, 

The hues for winter 2017 lingerie include timeless black but also lots of burgundy (replacing classic red for Christmas) and pink-nude, more understated but still flirty.”

This outfit is life. 💟👐

Personally, I’m in love, and I can’t wait to wear this trend all summer. 💞

Fierce street style.

What do you think about it?

Love,

Fashion Illustration // Inspiration for Design Project I’m Working On

IMG_20160629_140712I’m very excited to say I’m working on a design project. I’ve been researching and gaining inspiration for a little while, and I’m almost ready to make the actual products! Before doing so, I’ll be posting fabric swatches, more illustrations, (of the actual items) and more on my inspiration! So far, I cam say I’m being inspired by the natiral California landscape & traditional Mexican folkloric garments. 😀👖👒🌹

My vacation officially starts tomorrow and I am beyond ecstatic that I can dedicate all my time to my project, blogging, and music making. Yay!

Hope you’re all having an amazing summer so far! Make the most of it.

😉🌞✌❤

Maggie
