A closer look: Parisian Paisley

Parisian Paisley

Next up for preview week, a print covered in vivid shades of yellow, pink and turquoise. The cast of bold brights are beautifully complemented by versatile black and on-trend red, to create a ’70s rock-meets-’90s grunge aesthetic. A subtle folk influence runs through the paisley pattern, a fantastic fit for fall.

A closer look: Katalina Blues

Katalina Blue

Katalina Blues is a bright, cool complement to the minimal trend found throughout Fall ‘15. An icy tonal color story plays out beautifully against the camouflage background, while the pattern suggests chic cut outs and a fierce-yet-feminine floral.

Vera Bradley Katalina Pink

We’re pleased to kick off our preview week for Fall ’15 with our latest Breast Cancer Awareness color, Katalina Pink. These super-sweet shades tell a tonal color story, with a nod to the intricate details of a beautiful, feminine lace. The elements suggest a lovely overlay, while the palette is as girly as it gets.

Star-Spangled Celebrations: Cookout

Backyard barbecues are a quintessential part of Fourth of July festivities, and we love hosting our friends and family for a patriotic party. We’ve got the décor covered with a fun DIY for the patio, so all you need to bring is a side dish.

We are revamping our Valentine’s Day DIY for an ode to the grand old flag.

Mason Jar DIY

What You’ll Need: mason jar, star stickers, spray paint (we chose red), candle.

DIY

1. Place star stickers on the mason jar.
2. Spray the outside of the jar with red spray paint. Let this dry for two hours.
3. Once the paint is dry, remove the stickers.
4. Place candle inside for a twinkling glow.

Cookout Style

Outdoor parties call for breezy, carefree fabrics that make you want to stay a little while longer and go for the second s’more.
