Watercolor Magic

Within the next week, I will finally be moving into my dorm room. I'm really excited to decorate my room this year, seeing as last year I pretty much had the bare minimum of college essentials. It was a snooze fest. 

Rather than purchase the standard posters of Audrey and Marilyn, I really want to purchase some original artwork (okay, copies of original artwork) to display. Etsy has been my go to website for nifty one-of-a-kind items for awhile now, and I was blown away when I stumbled upon artist Jessica Durant's amazing watercolors. They're simple yet elegant and right up my alley. 

My favorites are the fashion watercolors and the NYC landscapes. I can't get enough. 

No but really I'm gonna buy everyone of them.

Everybody Loves Madewell

Given my SoCal roots, I tend to shy away from anything that's too preppy or polished looking in favor of looser fitting, more bohemian looks. (I'll take Free People over J.Crew pretty much every day of the week.)
That being said, I fell in love with the quirky twist on classic prep that Madewell took with its Fall 2012  lookbook. It's the perfect combination of boy meets girl, meets Zooey Deschanel from "New Girl."
