I can be influenced from florals (which, I never tire of), home furnishings, or museum masterpieces. The list is endless and there's always a reason to be inspired.
This jacquard-knit cardigan was an immediate win as soon as I saw it. I know for some it's a busy pattern, but it's really like nothing else. It's all about how you wear it--wearing colour, and expressing your unique personal style and interpretation. The spirited pattern was influenced by North African mosaics and tiles.
In the Gudrun spring-summer collection, I have several favourites, which I shall show you very soon. However, two pieces that I adore are these brogues, and this cardigan. I cannot stop staring at the colour of these shoes, and they feel like butter … wait, maybe you didn't catch that. Did I mention how buttery soft they are? Vegetable tanned leathery goodness that's comfortable and in a perfect colour, who knew?
Updates & Airport Diaries:
I am writing the rest of this post on my iPad, and as I type this I believe I've spotted another blogger in the midst of my gate change. I received a head nod from said "blogging stranger," who also just asked if he could use the plug next to me. Yes, my predictions are correct, I knew it! It was all about his shoes! And, although not a traditional blogger (his words), he begins to talk about his tech-savvy micro-blogging tales and hasn't the slightest idea that I am writing this ... yet.
We exchange blogging stories, and share a laugh talking about changes in social media. Then, he gave me a few new apps to check out. So, I do hope to share about those with you in the near future. Life is grand that way, isn't it? You never know who you can inspire or be inspired by.
I have been a occupied with some fun projects, so hold tight, I promise I will make it to your beautiful spaces very soon. In the meantime, do you have any summer holiday plans yet? I am getting ultimately inspired by this location.
Stay tuned for foodie inspiration coming up next! You can catch me mostly on Instagram and Twitter. But, for now, I will leave you with these quotes of inspiration as I dash to the next terminal.
"Spring has returned. The Earth is like a child that knows poems."
-Rainer Maria Rilke
"The kind of beauty I want most is the hard-to-get kind that comes from within; strength, courage, dignity."
