I've never been into the outdoors.. or really anywhere that doesn't have wifi access but lately I've been obsessed with cool nature inspired prints. In summer 2011 Stolen Girlfriend's Club's garden prints stole our soul with amazement, and now Mother Jeans is still carrying the trend through with Hawaii printed denim. And not to mention, too good to be true tumblr Sexy Sweaters creates photoshopped printed crew necks we all wish we could get our hands on. Seriously if these sweaters were real all of the my nonexistent money would be completely gone. Which totally eliminates my urge to yell "Fuck copyright laws!"cuz a girl needs to eat. So what do you guys think, are you taking the scenic route?

Lately I've been seeing a lot of pictures of Iris Apfel roaming around the web and it made me wonder how many other older women showcase extreme style just like her. So I went off on a quest (à la Google) swiftly typing in the search bar 'old people with style'. The first link I ran into was Ari Seth Cohen's fashion blog Advanced Style centered around stylish older women. I was instantly inspired by all the New York street style photos and the stories behind all the creative ladies who choose to dress up.
I don't know about you guys, but I don't want to fall into a slump when I get older. For some reason its odd to keep experimenting with fashion as you get older, but why? If Anna Dello Russo can be fun and daring with fashion and even a little scandalous, I think other people can take a chance too. You should never stop having fun with fashion! Check out the video below of the stylish older women who refuse to let fashion take a backseat.

I've always wanted to start a photo diary, but the the thought of carrying my annoyingly huge Nikon around all the time is an absolute no go. But Instagram makes it possible. Somehow cool filters make complete shit look like vintage complete shit. Which is awesome because it creates the illusion that I'm a supermodel instead of the poor art school kid that I really am. Get ready for random shots of my life posted regularly!

When I stumbled upon Zoe's blog, Girl with the Flower, I instantly fell in love. Anyone who has the ability to mix tons of textures and prints and still look pulled together is a gem in my eyes. But what really makes her outfits look amazing are her beautiful flower headbands that she hand makes herself.
New York songstress Lena Del Ray is also known to rock flower headbands adding a hint of fantasy to her looks. In her music video Born To Die, she looks absolutely breath taking in a white Antonio Berardi dresses topped of with a pale blue floral wreath. I'm not sure if this will become a real trend in 2012, but I definitely think its something to keep a look out for!

Can you see me, Can you see me? Put your Visine on! Or you could just grab some cool evil eye rings and your'e all good. I love jewelry thats a bit off/weird that you don't see a lot of people wearing. Part halloween, part emo kid that listens to death metal, I seriously love this trend. And to all of you who thought "This is some Illumanati shit!" when you saw this post, please watch THIS video. So what do ya'll think about 'Eye Ballin'? Yes or No?
