If you’ve been shopping this season, or browsed Pinterest at all in the past few months, you know floral is huge this season. I’ve seen floral patterned pants, jackets, shoes, hammers — you name it, it comes in a floral pattern. While I appreciate the versatility of it, I’m not sure I can pull off floral pants. Anyway, I love the abstract, more modern take on florals, like this secret garden poster by Michelle Armas, but I think my favourite is the watercolour floral paintings that Tatiana Musi creates. Have you embraced florals? In your wardrobe, your home, or both?

unexpected watercolour

I discovered Jill Wignall’s blog, Today I Saw, after ordering a collaborative print that she did with Bookhou. One post that stood out to me is of a paint job in progress in her bedroom. I love that the pattern and colours remind me of summer, and create such a playful look that also manages to be calming thanks to the subdued, watercolour effect. Would you ever try your hand at something like this in your home?

leslie feist for elle magazine

I’ve always thought Leslie Feist was stunning, and this photo shoot for Elle’s October issue proves she’s got style too. When you read the fine print in the magazine, you learn that lots of the items she’s wearing are her own. (Like that ring in the cover photo).

She has a new album coming out in October, but first, I’ll be buying some of her style.
