A Bouquet of Lilies

- Outfits

Pin It

As I’ve said previously, I draw inspiration from many sources and so far I’ve shown you my celebrity inspirations from Whitney Port and Hilary Duff, but today I am showing you inspiration from what I believe is the most inspirational source out there: nature.  From color combinations, to the textures and the way things move, nature, in my opinion, is where all great art comes from.  And since fashion is my way of being creative in everyday life, I will always be inspired by nature’s beauty.  This look, which is more colorful than many of the outfits I have ever worn (unless if it is already incorporated into a pattern on a dress or blouse) was inspired by the lilies I got from my boyfriend for Valentine’s Day. Lilies have always been my favorite flower.  I grew up with tiger lilies lining the outside of the house I grew up in and today, lilies are the source of this outfit.  Pink, orange and yellow looked so gorgeous together in this bouquet that I just couldn’t help but wonder what an ensemble like this would look like.  Here’s the result! I think I am ready for spring!!!!!

    Wow Rachel! Bright colors! I really adore that yellow dress on you and great idea for layering a blouse on top to make it more of a skirt 🙂 I can’t wait to try this out with a little yellow dress I have 😛

      Thanks so much Olivia! 🙂 I was worried my inspiration wouldn’t work well with the clothes I wanted to put together, but I was happy with the result! 🙂
