I don't think there is anything else I love style-wise more than a fun print. Who else remembers the TV show, The Magic School Bus from childhood? More specifically, who remembers the eccentric science teacher who was the star of the show, Ms. Frizzle and her pet lizard? Today's post is inspired by Ms. Frizzle and her fabulous print dresses that would glow or change color and were always themed with the lesson she was teaching.

This comes to mind vividly, thanks to a coworker who actually told me once that a printed cactus dress I was wearing reminded her of The Magic School Bus. I had totally forgotten about Ms. Frizzle and her fabulo...

It's Tuesday, which means #TravelTuesday to the Instagram world, which I like to follow.

It can evolve with age, with the introduction of a new brand, and trends. For me, I find my evolving style through all three of these things. I've also been inspired by summer, and this yellow look is brought you inspired by yellow sunshine, blue skies, and summer prints by ELOQUII.

While I am loving bright colors, I know they aren't for everyone. Wi...

....wear them! 

Today's post is all about wearable fruit! That is- fruit prints, such a lemons! Its summer after all, so theres no better time than now to bring some life to your wardrobe. 

I have to say, it wasn't until I went to the Amalfi Coast of Italy before I really saw the beauty of lemons. I vividly remember walking the hidden streets of Positano and coming across a gated garden where the vibrant yellow of lemons against the lush green garden and blue water in the distance caught my eye. I peered through the gates, as I had never seen lemons growing like this before in such a beautiful environment.

To be inspired in life by something is powerful- it can make us do...
