Happy Monday friends! So, it’s been a while since I last posted on my blog, but all for a good reason! As you may know, towards the end of last year I created Sparkle Studio, a stationery and design shop. Creating a form of inspiration to bring into other people’s lives (besides through my blog) has been a dream of mine since I started this blog. So since November, I have been working steadily at creating prints + product to inspire and bring joy to others. Sparkle Studio is based of foil design, and I personally hand make each item.

In order to take the studio to the next level, I decided to put a little more time the past couple months into creating items for the shop. I never intend to leave the blog, it means too much to me to connect and share moments with you all, but these days I sort of have to pick and choose wisely on where I put my time. With focusing on the studio, I can proudly say that I have been accepted into SoWa, Boston’s open market for art. Starting in May, I will be selling my prints and stationery each weekend at SoWa. This is a huge accomplishment for me, and the next step in taking my business where I want it to go!

So now that you know I have been a busy bee behind the scenes, I wanted to let you know that I will still be updating the blog weekly and will continue to share style and lifestyle posts with you! This off the shoulder bow top has me thinking spring (who isn’t?!), and I cannot wait to wear it regularly when the temps are warmer. It actually hit 50 yesterday, and naturally I wanted to wear all the off the shoulder tops. The pretty bow detail on the back of this top is so subtle, yet it makes the top! I will always love a bow detail. Actually the first date Najib and I went on, I wore a white top with a similar bow backing and I still have it to this day. I truly don’t think I can have too many bow tops!

I love the way this color pink pairs with white, so I added my favorite handbag for spring, this Zac Posen Clutch. How cute are the pearl and flower details?! It can be worn as a cross body too, but the size of the handbag is perfect to be used as either. The heels I am wearing here are under $50, and the perfect blush/nude suede.

Thank you all for taking the time to stop by and catch up!

xoxo,

Odette
