For the Love of Leaves


Hat: Vintage, thrifted| Earrings: Similar HERE| Kimono: HERE, snag a FREE trial membership
Bandeau top & wide leg pants: c/o HERE| Mules: Similar HERE & HERE| Suede bag: Zara, old

I have a thing for leafy prints. Like seriously.... I L❤VE THEM! When this kimono came by way of a recent GB shipment, I knew right away that it was a #BorrowNBuy. To learn more about GB see previous blog posts HERE & HERE.
If I totally lacked all self-control, my entire loft would look be reminiscent of the amazon rainforest -plus a few cacti for good measure of course, LOL! For instance, I have been eying this credenza (oh this one is nice too) for my bedroom for quite some time... My bedroom walls are green, very close to the shade of my purse. My inspiration for its recent refresh (currently ongoing) was a gorgeous palm print wallpaper pattern I saw on Pinterest. I have a ways to go to reach absolute completion, I'd love to find a nice heavy fabric in the exact print of this kimono with a white background to have curtains made...That reminds me, I need to carve out some time to make my way down to the fabric district...
Until next time Babes,
Xx

  3. Oh I love that credenza! Just not the price so much. I wonder how hard something like that would be to DIY....
