What I Wore: The Rose Garden

Nubby Twiglet What I Wore Rose Garden

I don’t have a chance to dress up very often these days but when I do, I’ve been trying some new things. My style goal this year was to push myself out of my usual comfort zone and this dress, with a mixture of colors (and even flowers!) does just that. I love it though. For daytime, I usually wear a black cardigan over the top but had to show off the standout element on this occasion – a super strappy back made of elastic bands. When we were walking through the rose gardens near the Washington Park Zoo and spotted this oasis brimming with tropical foliage, it was a little too perfect.

To my American readers, I hope you’re having a great holiday weekend. This morning, I got a surprise call from one of my best friends and then took Rocky out on a walk through the Reed College campus. Pretty good start to the day!

I’m always on the lookout for fresh visual inspiration — and with the permeation of Pinterest and Tumblr it gets harder to find exciting, provoking imagery that hasn’t been reposted everywhere. Veer, long one of my favorite sources for purchasing fonts, has launched Veer Ideas, a Tumblr full of stunning photos and type. The mix of compositions and colors really gave me a creative jolt — this collection doesn’t disappoint.
