bold + bright, patterns + textures, peacock chairs + faded tapestries

style tips: high waisted pants look good on most body types; show some skin and pair with a crop top. Embrace the mumu/caftan: easy to find at most thrift shops, this once was an old lady house dress but paired with a belt or statement necklace gives it an effortlessly chic look (think Olsen twins, yes they are still cool.)                                                                                                                                        We love retro but this collection feels fresh + new, just add modern sunnies, a perfect round straw bag, and a margarita or two.

part II: the white party

channeling our inner carly simon + joni mitchell in these boho chic frocks. unexpected sweet patterns (strawberries anyone?) and swiss dot textures make this collection feel very today. 

part III : unedited fun @ the shop. 

chilly day in downtown syracuse

welcome to part two of the fall/winter maeflowers lookbook. cold upstate weather could not keep us from rocking some serious maeflowers pieces outside in beautiful armory square.

fashion + food is just a very natural combination for me, setting the table and serving beautiful food is just as important as the outfit you are wearing to the party. no one understands this concept more than Abigail Henson, the owner and chef at LoFo, a local gem in the heart of armory square, syracuse.

since the moment we met, we talked about collaborating on a fashion shoot at Lofo that also highlights her gorgeous menu. the below is perfect blend of multi colored printed dresses + bright beet juice.
