blog it forward


Victoria aka sfgirlbybay, started a virtual chain letter in the wonderful world of blogs, and has asked over 300 blogs to answer what inspires you?..today is my turn..
i am sitting here staring at the screen..what inspires me is tough, cause its different from what you like..so here goes, hope you enjoy..

1. sunshine..its my remedy to get me moving and feel motivated. I love a rainy day every now and then but sunshine, barefeet..i am content

2. water..i will always need to live near water, growing up on a river, and now living near the pacific ocean..i love that salt air

3. glossies- i am still so sad about domino going under. i get giddy about saving up my mags and indulging in them before bed, during commenrcial of bad tv, on the beach, on the airplane.then going back again and pulling out tear sheets and then finally saving them in magazine files..my first magazine subscription when i was probably 15 was called Model, and i would cover my walls with beautiful images.

4. casual style- i heart casual style with some sort of feminine detail.. this image is perfect her hair is totally casual and the ruffled bottom of the dress is perfection. you can do the same with ripped jeans..and add a bunch of layered necklaces and good to go. i wish i could pull off the lady-like chicness of audrey hepburn, but it feel like i am in a costume when i am all 'pulled together.'

5. eclectic home style- love the mix of vintage/modern, serene/bold, stripes/floral... especially when shown through layers and layers of textiles and amazing styling.
