Flower Guy at Flower Child

I am not usually a fan of floral patterns, but there is something about The Flower Guy, Michael De Feo’s, work that is architectural.  I bought all three of the designs he did in a collaboration (more on that here) with J. Crew.  I recently took my Flower Guy teeto lunch with my mom at Flower Child.

I styled it with a J. Crew cashmere cardigan, J. Crew Lookout jeans, J. Crew Piper sunglasses, New Balance for J. Crew kicks and a Legend of Lido clutch.

The same tee was featured in Blue Daisy.  I styled the others in the collection in Day and Night Stripes and Tulips in the Kitchen.  All three t-shirts were featured in Blooming in Blue

Tulips in the Kitchen

This past weekend was busy and I had to rush through our Sunday morning Farmer’s Market and only grab the weekly essentials for my new way of eating (pasture-raised eggs, bacon, broccoli and zucchini).  With my laser focus on healthy eating that I wrote about in Resolutions and Intentions,  I forgot flowers.  At least I have this adorable tulip t-shirt, another from the Michael De Feo for J. Crew collection, to brighten up the carb-free kitchen.

I styled it with a J. Crew grey cashmere cardigan, lavender AG Prima jeans, my favorite J. Crew leopard flats and J. Crew Ryan sunglasses.

Day and Night Stripes

Wearing stripes day and night is not unusual for me.  If I am not in plaid pajamas, then I am in striped (like these that are so soft, and monogrammable).  I recently took the Michael De Feo for J. Crew Striped T-shirt with Painted Flowers from day to night with the change of a blazer, bag to clutch ,and lip stain to lip gloss. I only had fifteen minutes as I had to feed my boys before heading out for a much needed girl’s night.

For another styling option for this t-shirt and the two others in the collection check out Blooming in Blue.

Blue Daisy

My Michael De Feo for J. Crew t-shirts  have been on repeat.  The styling options are endless.  For this casual look I styled this Painted Daisy in Vase one with the J. Crew Field Mechanic Jacket, Frame Jeans, a Legends of Lido Clutch, J. Crew Ryan Sunglasses and the band new J. Crew Lea Ballet Flat.  I featured and styled all three t-shirts last week in Blooming in Blue.  This week’s mani is also inspired by this wearable art (Mani Monday – The Flower Guy Edition).

Mani Monday – The Flower Guy Edition

It feels like Spring.  At least in the stores and definitely this weekend in Los Angeles, actually make that Summer.  Nothing screams Spring like flowers.  The Michael De Feo for J. Crew collection of t-shirts give J. Crew‘s new roll a freshness that is irresistible.  I featured all three t-shirts (the Painted Daisy Vase, Striped with Painted Flowers, and Painted Tulips) last week in Blooming in Blue.  The collection inspired this week’s mani.

The color is “Mariniere” by Chanel.  The manicure and nail art are by Olive & June.

My Fitbit Flex 2 in navy is pictured above and is so easy to wear.

Happy Monday!
