I’ve always thought it would be cool to hike on sand dunes, perhaps even roll down a few if the opportunity presented itself. There’s just something wonderful about endless, rolling hills of sand with the occasional shrub or camel sighting.

I bought this Mara Hoffman tunic-y thing over a year ago and have only worn it as a beach cover-up but it’s far too beautiful to reserve only for beach side occasions. So I threw it over a black bandeau top and a pair of black leggings for an imaginary excursion on some sand dunes. I love the way it blows in the wind and all of its intricate aztec detailings that Mara Hoffman does impeccably well. While probably best worn only in the summertime, I can totally imagine wearing it in the fall with a heavy leather jacket (I feel like I want to wear everything with a leather jacket and I’m ok with that…) and some ripped up jeans. However, a hot day on some dunes requires the most comfortable and light apparel, but next time I think I’ll go barefoot.

A Time to Share

December 21, 2010

I’ve never been one to make New Year’s resolutions; truth be told I often either forget about them or break them within a week. That being said, I have always enjoyed the process of looking back on the previous year and making a note of all that I am grateful for as well as everything that’s made me happy and inspired me to continue doing the things that I love. So, in the first edition of my own personal “Best of 2010″ I thought I’d share the 10 blogs that have inspired me on a day-to-day basis to continue working, writing, and creating the things that bring me the most joy and happiness in my life. From incredible fashionistas and travel blogs to outstanding D.I.Y. ideas, here are my ten favorite blogs of 2010.

1. Louise Ebel of Pandora

2. Erica & Lauren of Honestly…WTF

3. Keiko of Keiko Lynn

4. Ryan & Dina of Vagabond Quest

5. Jovelle Hoverson of The Purl Bee

6. Kelly Framel of The Glamourai

7. Mara Hoffman

8. Sabrina of After Drk

9. Tamu of All the Pretty Birds

10. Lou & Sarah of Birds of a Feather

I don’t collect many tangible things. I attempted to begin a cactus collection about six months ago and still only have two cacti. I also tried to start a snow globe collection and have about three in my apartment right now, not exactly what I would call an ample collection…

Something that I have managed to collect over the past few years is an extensive amount of pictures that I store in a folder on my computer. I am constantly going into this folder to draw inspiration for work, personal style and decoration. Since a lot of these photographs influence what I put on Runway Hippie, I thought I’d share some of my current favorites with you.

Spring 2010: MARA HOFFMAN

September 12, 2009

I am absolutely IN LOVE with Mara Hoffman’s spring collection. Long flowy goddess gowns and colorful minis are just what every girl needs in her closet. Absolutely stunning.

I adore tribal prints. I am so happy they are making such a big appearance at fashion week.

I would give just about anything for this dress
