Summer Roundup | Accessories are Everything

Summer Roundup | 4 Ways to Change 1 Uniform Outfit via DelphineThe flirty skirt with a simple tank tucked in seems to be the easiest, but also the most popular go to of trends this season. It’s cool in the hot summer heat, chic for any occasion and the options for accessorizing it are endless. We came up with four different outfits that cater to whatever style you’re going for that day. Despite the heat, no need to sweat trying to mix it up, we got it covered!

“UNIFORM” SOURCES || Tank: Smocked Bottom Cami from Target | Skirt: Factory Wide-Striped Mini from J.Crew Factory

Outfit 1: Whether it’s with the girls or with your someone special, this outfit is the perfect dinner date outfit. The accessories are pretty, simple and neutral so together with the navy and pink it’s the perfect amount of class and sass. SOURCES || Necklace: Bellaire Circle Drop Necklace from Francesca’s | Belt: Sandpoint Stitched Belt from Francesca’s | Bag: Calvin Klein Modena Leather Tote from 6PM | Shoes: Periphery Wedge Sandals from Asos

Outfit 2: Since we already did a dinner date outfit, it is only right to come up with a lunch date outfit as well. Flats are perfect because they are comfortable and cute but they keep the ensemble sharp and not too casual. Pair it with a bright purse and some gold jewelry and you’re good to go! SOURCES || Sunglasses: Ray Ban Aviators | Necklace: Triple Gold Chunky Chain Collar from Bauble Bar | Purse: Snake Embossed Crossbody Clutch from Nordstrom | Shoes: Merona Madge Cap Toe Ballet Flat from Target

Outfit 3: This may be our most casual look but it is still nothing short of fabulous. Perfect for the weekend! Mixing and matching many colors is all the rage this season so don’t be shy to pair a colorful belt, earrings, and bag, especially if you have neutral sandals.  SOURCES  || Sunglasses: With Love from CA Half Frame Tortoise Sunglasses from PacSun | Earrings: 2 Stone Drop Earrings from Target | Belt: BCBGMAXAZRIA Double Wrap Waist Belt from Lord & Taylor | Purse: Cole Haan Zoe Izzie Clutch from 6PM | Shoes: Steven Madden Cuff Leather Sandals from Lord & Taylor

Outfit 4: So obviously this last look is the office look. It’s important to be excited to go to work everyday and we believe the outfit has a lot to do with it! Keep it professional with a jacket and closed toed shoes. Add a bold statement necklace for a little edge, and don’t forget a roomy tote to stash your files. SOURCES || Jacket: Topshop Textured Blazer from Nordstrom | Necklace: Laura Necklace from Mimi Boutique | Bag: Ivanka Trump Crystal Bag from 6PM | Shoes: Arturo Chiang Avia Pointy Toe Pump from Lord & Taylor

Coral Wedding Inspiration

Coral Wedding Inspiration via DelphineI wonder if it’s possible to look at this inspiration palette and not fall in love with coral? It’s nothing short of perfect. We’re totally crushing on coral. The thing we love most about it is that it looks pretty in any shade. And a whole mix of corals together? It’s one of our favorite looks.

Coral matches well with gold, silver, neutrals and even other colors (hello, mint!). It is said that origins of the word are traced back to mean “fate” and “destiny.” So, what better color to help create your romantic, joyful day destined to be perfect?

Emerald Green Weddings

Emerald Green Wedding Inspiration via Delphine

Emerald’s elegance and romance are forever entangled. The beautiful gemstone is said to be the sacred stone of the goddess Venus, and that its divine powers help to sustain and preserve love. It’s no wonder this exquisite color, Pantone’s color of the year for 2013 (and a Delphine perennial favorite), is the foundation of some of this year’s most fabulously chic weddings. It’s a color as old as time, direct from the wonders of nature, so no worries about emerald green being a passing trend! It’s a timeless, classic color, perfect for weddings. When Pantone named it color of the year for 2013 Erika clapped out loud!

National Stationery Show 2012

National Stationery Show 2012 DelphineIt’s my favorite time of year: National Stationery Show week. NSS 2012 is turning out to be a beautiful show. Here are a few snapshots of some of the lovely things I spotted at the Javits Center this week so far:

National Stationery Show 2012 NSS Clockwise from top left: Fawnsberg (LOVE the amazing hand lettering, sweet illustrations … and the gum eraser giveaways), Mohawk Paper (isn’t their new logo fab?), Paper + Cup design (sweet + chic retro office supply style warms my heart), Flywheel Press (80′s references make me feel slightly old, but happy).

Linda and Harriet NSS 2012

Linda & Harriett combined 5 of my very favorite things in one product: a hand lettered, neon, gold accented, screen printed oversize calendar. On my wish list!!!

Wild Ink Press National Stationery Show 2012Rebecca’s Wild Ink Press booth is beyond spectacular & my favorite so far. Love love love the ombre look. My iphone pic does not do it justice : (

I’ll be walking the show again today. Follow my Instagram feed @delphinestudio or follow me on Twitter @delphine_studio for live updates.

inspired by lovely lace + big partnership news!

Lately I’ve been exploring softer, more romantic designs. A random paper doily found in the bottom of a kitchen drawer inspired the new romantic lace doily wedding invitation I designed for Wedding Paper Divas.

That’s right! In addition to all the new designs we’re releasing this month in our new Delphine wedding album, we’re also launching a partnership with Tiny Prints and Wedding Paper Divas! I’m super excited about this new partnership. We worked with the Tiny Prints folks to help design a new hybrid letterpress-digital wedding invitation.

What does that mean? Well, the design-y part (in this case, the doily motif) is letterpressed on pretty cotton paper, and the text (the part you customize) is printed flat/digitally. My collection of Delphine for Wedding Paper Divas wedding invitations launched with a few designs last month. Check back often, as the collection will be filling out soon.

DETAILS: //1// California rustic wedding, photo by Wildflower Photography via Style Me Pretty   //2// Lace doily “Soothing Crcles” wedding invitation by yours truly, Delphine, for Wedding Paper Divas   //3// Stunning lace dress by Lela Rose   //4// Cotton and antique lace dress by Sestra Moja  //5// Picture perfect lace wedding cake by Sweet and Saucy   //6// Rustic salvaged wood tiered serving tray from Restoration Hardware   //7// Queen Anne’s Lace necklace from BHLDN   //8// Lace dancing shoes by Badgley Mischka from Nordstrom
