If you’re ready to learn all about autumn blooms, explore the darker side of fall florals and add a cozy touch to your decor, this post is for you! Rich bordeauxs, warm neutrals, blush and grey have been making waves in all things fall FASHION — and they also translate beautifully to flower and interior design. Welcome autumn into your home today as we chat about familiar and unconventional fall blooms and foliage in this Guide to Bringing Autumn Flowers Into Your Home — including velvety, wine hued Ranunculus, peach Ranunculus, Mother of Pearl Roses (remember those beauties?), Astrantia, Scabiosa, Saracena Lily, Poppy Pods and Angel Wings Begonia Leaves! Rebecca also shares her expert autumn flower care tips to help extend the life of your autumn blooms for as long as possible.
I’m back tonight with the first of many AUTUMN 2017 TREND GUIDES coming to JustineCelina this year and I couldn’t be more excited to share it! I look different — and I certainly feel different as well. Since taking the plunge and indulging in the eyelash skimming fringe I’d been lusting after since the summer, I’m finding myself completely renergized when it comes to all things fashion, style and beauty. So, we’re changing things up around here — this TREND GUIDE is dedicated to refreshing your personal style for a new season! In addition to diving head first into a handful of this season’s hottest trends, I’m also sharing my favourite ways to revitalize my look without breaking the bank (I shopped my own closet to pull this look together — gotta love that!).
Have the changing seasons left you craving change, as well? Girl, you’re in good company — pour yourself a delicious, juicy glass of red wine and hang out with me for a little while tonight while we chat about sleek locks, red, checks (plaid’s sophisticated sister!), ruffles, soft leather and bad ass boots in this unconventional autumn look. I’m also sharing some tips on how to style this look for a professional settings, simply by changing up a few pieces! Oh, and that archaic rule about no white after Labour Day? We don’t worry about that around here!
Welcome back for another installment of DIGITAL BLOOMS where I team up with my friend and crazy talented flower designer Rebecca Dawn Design on the first of each month to create 3 free tech wallpapers inspired by seasonal blooms and current trends! This month, we’re drawing inspiration from PANTONE Fall 2017 Fashion Color Reportagain — but this time, we’re honing in on Tawny Port, Butterum, Ballet Slipper and Golden Lime to showcase the moodier side of fall florals (I’ll also be wearing fall florals later this month — keep your eyes peeled for fresh TREND GUIDES coming to JustineCelina in October!).
If you’re ready to embrace a autumn’s dark side, we’ve curated a stunning selection of some familiar and new-to-you blooms — including Ranunculus, Carnations, Astrantia, Scabiosa, Queens Anne’s Lace and Saracena Lilies arranged in undone harmony. Throw on your coziest sweater and fluffiest slippers, pour yourself a second cup of coffee and settle in on this crisp Sunday morning to browse October 2017’s free desktop wallpapers. We hope you enjoy these moody fall florals on the background of your computer, tablet or phone all month long! Let us know which design you chose this month in the comments below — we love to hear from you!
Happy first weekend of… fall?! Somehow, we skipped autumn entirely this week and went straight from almost 30°C weather to snow and frigid, negative temperatures. As we’ve established, autumn is my favourite time of year, but this week I was forced to bust out my cold weather pieces — I hadn’t even finished getting my fall wardrobe together, yet wintery conditions were upon us. It was time to get creative (and warm!) and make the most of my existing wardrobe — but the good news is that our drastic weather shift here in Calgary inspired today’s post all about refreshing old favourites for a new season! Absolutely everything I’m wearing today is something I’ve owned for several months or years — and you’ve also seen most of these pieces here at JustineCelina previously.
Although I love to shop just as much as the next girl (and now it’s even become part of the way I earn a living!), I think there’s something to be said for learning how to make the most of your existing wardrobe when the seasons change and looking to new sources of inspiration to inform your sartorial choices. That’s exactly what I did for today’s look — I can’t wait to share how I styled these well loved wardrobe staples through fresh eyes for Autumn 2017 to reflect current seasonal trends! If you’re looking to maximize your existing wardrobe this season, get cozy with me tonight as I pull out my coats, sweater dresses, OTK boots, velvet accessories, fall florals and autumnal lip colours!
Flower loving friends, the first month of autumn is upon us — and we’re easing into it slowly here at JustineCelina with September 2017’s Free Desktop Wallpapers! This month, Rebecca Dawn Design and I were inspired by the PANTONE Fall 2017 Fashion Color Report for September’s DIGITAL BLOOMS (yes, we’re back on those Pantone Colour Reports again… expect to become very familiar with this one over the next few months and I work with this palette across categories!). This month’s free floral wallpapers are a little bit summer and a little bit fall, just like this gorgeous month — I think they’re my favourite set yet!
September has us lusting after Pantone’s Ballet Slipper, Butterum, Autumn Maple, Golden Lime, Tawny Port and Neutral Grey — I’m crazy about those deep tones and warm neutrals accent by pops of blush and grey to keep things light and airy as we transition into Autumn 2017. If you’re ready to embrace the seasonal change and a brand new colour story on the background of your computer, tablet or phone, click through to download September’s Digital blooms! We’re curated a lovely collection of fresh flowers, foliage and berries — including Quicksand and Mother of Pearl Roses (learn more about them here), Tinted Solidago, Angel Wings Begonia leaves, Larkspur, Poppy Pods, Hypericum, Sweet Peas and Ranunulus (other than being one of our favourite flowers, did you know they’re in season almost year round?). Oh, and if you’re new around here (welcome!) — yes, they really are absolutely free!
I’m strutting into September with fresh SUMMER TO AUTUMN 2017 TREND GUIDE for this transitional time of year! Today I’m sharing a versatile look that I’ve worn many times this summer in both personal and professional settings — and I’m also showing you how to style it into the first days of autumn. I’m planning to enjoy summer for as long as I possibly can — the weather is exceptionally beautiful here in Calgary (there was actually a heat warning on the day we shot this post and it was 34 °C!) and therefore I’m going to utilize every possible opportunity to wear sandals and open toed shoes (Canadian girls, I know you feel me)!
In this pre-fall TREND GUIDE, I’m merging a handful of key trends from Summer / Autumn 2017 — including orange, butterum, eyelet, embroidery, cork and natural textured accessories, bright whites, strappy sandals and tailored, wide leg trousers. I’m finally showing off my birthday present here at JustineCelina (to myself, from myself!) — the absolutely stunning, Gaia’s Ark Bamboo Clutch (which has been on heavy rotation in my summer wardrobe but hasn’t yet made it to the blog!). I’m also sharing autumn styling options by simply changing up my accessories to include an office appropriate, daytime bag that doubles as a briefcase, gorgeous tasseled pumps a classic watch! And last but not least, it’s that time of year again — today I’m introducing you to the PANTONE Fall 2017 Fashion Color Report and chatting about how you can incorporate fall colour trends into your wardrobe right now to extend the life of your favourite summer pieces as we transition into autumn. If you’re not quite sure what to wear during this time of year, hang out with me today for some fresh ideas and outfit inspiration as I style this colourful look for both seasons!
Flower friends, welcome back for a very festive edition of DIGITAL BLOOMS — where we’re celebrating Canada’s 150th birthday with an explosion of vibrant, fiery flowers! This month, Rebecca Dawn Design and I were inspired by warm, sun drenched days, summer celebrations and… you guessed it, the spicy side of the Spring 2017 Pantone Fashion Color Report — specifically, Flame. Pantone describes this sizzling, red based orange as fun loving, flamboyant and vivacious. It’s a beautiful summer hue and I can’t wait to work with this fiery shade across categories this month here at JustineCelina (orange is one of my favourite colours to wear during the summer — and did you read that Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette is back in stock?!).
Spice up your tech this month by clicking through to choose from 3 free digital wallpapers and enjoy some sunshine on your the background of your computer, tablet or phone all month long! Our July 2017 Digital Blooms feature Ranunculus, Double Tulips, Narcissus, Asclepia and Genista set to a sizzling colour palette of golden yellow, vibrant orange, warm coral and Pantone’s striking Flame.
