Inspired by: the Saguaro

I'm still having trouble getting back to reality after my perfect stay at the perfect hotel, The Saguaro. As I was combing through my Pinterest, I realized that I could take the Saguaro with me anywhere. With the rainbow and color blocking trends being so popular right now it's easy to take a cue from this hotel and incorporate the Saguaro into clothing, shoes, accessories, or even your home. It was hard to whittle this list down, and there are more options on my pin boards, but my main focus is color blocking (not patterns) in bright hues (not pastels or primaries or neons, but a healthy mix of rainbow with no blacks or browns) and something summery. The exception to the summertime look is the color blocked coat at the top, but I thought it was a good illustration of how to transition this trend to fall.

Since these images come from Pinterest, it is hard for me to give them all credit or know their source. But here are the ones I know for sure. Starting from above: ASOS, Bejewelled Bespoke, Tom Binns, Shoe Mint, Nasty Gal, Stella McCartney, Charlotte Olympia, Felicity & Coco, Alice + Olivia, Juicy Couture, Anthropologie, Dannijo, Christian Louboutin, Kate Spade, Tibi, Jeffrey Campbell, Etsy.

Have a colorful and inspiring weekend!
