felling girly {zig zag love}


I think it is because they appeal to my girly side but I am really loving chevron patterns lately, it started with a love for just pink ones...





And then grew to include blue ones

and even black.

GET THE LOOK: If you are looking to add zig zags to your home I recommend you check out the rugs of Madeline Weinrib Atelier and those from West Elm, the adorable throw pillows from twinkle living or this fantastic mirror from Pottery Barn. And if you are looking to add some to your wardrobe I would take a peak at both Milly's and DVF's offerings or this pink zig scarf.

It's definitely a bold choice!

I think my favorite is when used with a neutral pallet, so that it really stands out and makes a statement. The second to last photo of the sitting area is a great example!

Nice collection of photos!

These pictures are so divine. I'd really like a zig zag scarf worn as a headband - much like the red haired beauty in the fourth pic. Love! :)

Navy & white chevron has always been one of my favorite designs. I love the tall, glossy traditional Mexican ceramic lidded ginger jars that stand out against dark, rough honed woods.

The pink is a new one to me.

I am obsessed! I'm thinking of running some Linda & Harriet paper through our printer for escort cards for our wedding. The blue zig zag rocks.

Yea! This is a post made for me. I am totally loving this pattern (still hunting for [affordable] sheets with this pattern) but if all else fails I could get that seafoam pillow from Twinkle Living.

Thank you!
