Better with Blue

Standard
It’s April and Autism Awareness month. And the campaign signature color is blue.
I made this set to honor the cause and hopefully help bring awareness.
I don’t know much about autism myself, and I don’t know anyone who deals with this but I’m always open to educate myself.
So, even though I had never heard about Autism Speak before making this set, I’ve now learned it’s the most well-known autism charity in the US.
At first I thought it was a symbol for all autism charities but I was mistaken.
I found a charity that people seem conflicted about. I’ll leave it to you to decide.

Stripes dominated the runways for spring 2015, and I’m thrilled about it!
You might think ‘what’s new about spring and stripes?’ Every spring we await the nautical stripes in white and blue to pop up. But this year the popular pattern has gotten a make-over and the stripes of the season are bold and different. They come in all widths and hues. And the bolder the better.
Clashing colors and stripes on stripes, it’s all good. The motto of the season is ‘more is more’.
Stripes did not only dominate the runways but has also hit the streets and become the most popular pattern in street wear.
I love stripes, and I love them bold and colorful. But I also love them in black and white.
The old myth that stripes are only suited for skinny people is stupid and ridiculous.¬†Fashion rules are made to be broken anyways. But who cares if an item adds an inch or what not. It’s not like people measure you and notice an inch missing or added. But if you are self-conscious about this then wear vertical stripes and layer. You should not avoid a look you like just because someone made a rule about it! Make your own rules! Here’ a suggestion for rule number 1 :You all don’t get a say when it comes to my wardrobe!

Mary or no Mary

Mary Katrantzou might have moved on but I still adore her digital prints.
Her spring collection for 2015 is awesome but she first caught my eye with her fabulous prints.
This dress is no Mary but it’s a great dress nevertheless.
Not everyone can afford to buy designer outfits but this dress with the image of a dress has just the right look without costing too much.
If you want to check out Mary Katrantzou’s 2015 spring collection you can find it here.

If you prefer this cheaper dress you can find it here.Happy Birthday Ragnhild

I am a huge fan of the colorblock trend. I love geometric lines and prints and the bigger the better.
This dress is awesome in my opinion. The print makes no sense but that’s why it makes all the sense in the world.
Polka dots are still on trend, and why not have three large dots instead of a trillion small and insignificant ones?!
Wish everyone a great weekend, and my advice for the weekend; don’t get lost in the woods!!

Easter is over and done with and every day life is back on its regular track.
I have a sore muscle so I’m having some difficulty moving and using my arm.
Therefor I’m making this a very short post and mainly just want to wish you all a great April and happy regular days:)

It’s the final day of Easter and everyone has returned home from where ever they’ve been. My family just got back from New York after spending Easter vacation in the big city.
It’s been snowing almost every day this Easter, and it’s been cold.
Hopefully the weather will cheer up soon.
Tomorrow it’s back to normal and every day routine.
This spring yellow is one of the colors to wear, so Easter might be over but yellow is staying for a good while longer.
