Floral with everything



thrifted bongo floral skirt; hanes v-neck; aa cardigan & skinny belt; keds

Having a hard time finding a good photo spot in my new place.
Find this denim floral skirt at a savers. Haven't worn a plain tee shirt in a while, so it was nice to slip into one.
I find myself getting a little over the top with my outfits, so when I have something as outrageous as a floral denim mini-skirt, I forced myself to pair it with something simple. I got a little matchy- there's no stopping me :)
Maybe could have used some baby pink lipstick...

Stay cool!

A friend and I went out to brunch & coffee during hot weather.

Sara's outfit is simple and chic.
This outfit interests me because, although I personally don't like to wear black, I like the way she is wearing it.
See-thru black is lovely mixed with denim.
Also, this watch is a staple in Sara's wardrobe.
I don't normally wear jewelry but once I find a nice simple piece like this- I know I will come to appreciate it.

Nicely done, Sara.

Fancy French Cologne

I have been waiting and waiting for Fancy French Cologne to come out with their online shopping site, and they have!
Luckily I got a sneek preview and wanted to share with you the adorable items coming soon to

Why am I suddenly interested in online shopping again, you ask?
Haven't I always just looked at F21 and OU online, but really only shopped at American Apparel because I work there? Wrong.
Fancy French Cologne is owned by two SF girlies that were in a bitchin' band, Finest Dearest.
When I heard they were coming out with a clothing line, I was like "THESE GIRLS RULE!"

Let me give you a peep of what I already have saved in my Wishlist


The Salt + Pepper Blazer has super cute details, nice urban looking sleeves, but it totally still tailored-
hence urban chic!


A Sweater Blazer, why haven't I seen this before? Two staple items in my closet combined in one item!
No more pairing cardigans under Blazers to get the comfort and the structure. This is all-in-one! Gah, love!


Dark Olive Messenger Bag- aren't we always looking for the perfect bag?
But wait- this one is made of 100% man made materials. Even better!


And now, if I were to dress in all black (God forbid!)
I could still have a floral element with this adorable Ashley Clutch.
You know I don't go anywhere without some floral, pastel or grandma-esque item. Problem solved.

So at this point you're all like, "uhh... Erin, why haven't you mentioned anything about the girl in these pictures?"
Silly me! My sister, Nicole is one of the models on the website. Isn't she cute?

you can meet us both at Fancy French Cologne's Launch Party on September 23rd.
RSVP on Facebook! Oh and while you're on Facebook, don't forget to "like" Fresh Influence.

Miss you guys, more soon!

It's been a while. Finally getting back into the swing of things.
More coming soon. But for now- I will entertain you with my constant obsession with pastels and florals.
This one homeless man down my street once yelled "HEY GRANDMAMA" to me. I've sort of adopted that title.

All for now,
