"My name is Solange and I'm a model currently living in Scottsdale, Arizona with my husband and two kitties. I love fashion, interior design, being outside in nature, and traveling whenever I get a chance. I get excited discovering new places, local hidden gems as well as far off destinations. They always give me creative inspiration. "
"When it came to styling your beautiful kaftan, I was immediately drawn to its vibrant colors. The color turquoise is one of my personal favorites, so to dress it up, I paired it with my statement earrings and the embellished belt, both with turquoise accents. Then I wore simple strappy nude heels so the colorful print of the kaftan could be the center of attention. Since I've worked in the fashion industry I've learned my fair share of tricks, so I also thought I'd play with how I wore it. I flipped it on its side to create a v-neck and then used the other ties to cinch the waist. I love the flattering shape this created. I snapped the photos at The Saguaro Scottsdale. A local hotel with a colorful island vibe. I thought it was the perfect location!"

Flashing back to Sunrise in Byron Bay, New Years Day... A glorious way to start 2016. The beauty of this morning is apparent in the mimicking of our Azure Sky print with the moody early morning skies.
Sunrise is such a beautiful time of day, calm, quiet, unobtrusive and not yet apparent what sort of day it will be - a great time to both reflect and dream!
