Flowers in Her Hair

Last month I did a promotional shoot for the The Blush Diaries and promised to share some of the photos with you. The photographer was fellow blogger Melon from Melrish Photography. We chose to do the shoot on 8 boulevard in downtown Dubai because of the open spaces and beautiful infrastructure. I wanted my outfit to be comfortable, fun and flirty and to embody the essence of my personality and my blog. Therefore a flower crown was necessary, and confetti. Always Confetti.

“Someone told me there’s a girl out there with love in her eyes and flowers in her hair.”

Show Cropper

This is definitely the year of crop tops and midi skirts, and now that the weather is warm I can’t wait to start slipping these styles into my wardrobe.

Here are a couple of outfit ideas you can use for inspiration when shopping this spring.

Flirty Leather

Leather has always been a fall/winter textile, but I’m loving how it’s making its way into spring. When styled properly, the leather can give a sexy edge to a feminine outfit. One particular trend that caught my eye is the faux leather skirts in soft pastels and vivid hues.The juxtaposition of a warm fabric in cool and bright colors is brilliant.
