E-session Fashion { Fashion Friday }

I am instantly drawn to color, print, texture, pattern…you name it.  Like a moth to a flame,  I haven’t met a color or print I didn’t like.  I always envy girls chic minimalistic style and try to mimic to the best of my ability.  I feel very sophisticated and grown up in just a great fitting pair of jeans and white button up blouse.  But I also feel soooo boring!  I tend to have more of a Rachel Bilson or Olivia Palermo attitude to my style.  
More is more is more!
