When fashion meets art!! I couldn’t wait another minute to share this fun project with you!! I typically don’t post on Wednesday’s but couldn’t hold back another day!! LOL Every Spring in San Diego the Museum of Art celebrates Art Alive and showcases its stunning works of art with more than 100 floral interpretations created by top local and national designers. In anticipation of this year’s Art Alive floral festivities, I was invited to participate in a fun Art Alive inspired challenge, along with a fellow style blogger, Conni of Art in the Find!
I partnered with Ted Baker to put together looks that complimented art pieces in the Museum! After seeing all of the art I had to work with it was truly inspiring and I went straight to doing what I love…shopping!! LOL I was so thrilled when I saw all the gorgeous Ted Baker dresses to choose from and how incredibly similar they were to the artwork! It was truly meant to be! *heart eyes* I would love to know your thoughts on these looks and if you think I hit the mark with these pairings! Keep scrolling to see all four looks, including everything you need to know about Art Alive, plus a fun giveaway!!!

Eeeeek, so what do you think?! I’m so happy with how everything came together. I feel like these dresses were made for each and every display!! Do you have a favorite pairing, dress or artwork from this fun Art Alive project? I personally could have spent hours in the museum taking photos and exploring all of the amazing art. Good thing the museum is having their exhibition from April 28-April 30 so we can all go back and explore together!! If you’re a fan of art, florals, spring or basically just having fun in general, then you won’t want to miss this! Also, I’m giving away 2 pairs of tickets for the Floral Exhibition!

Yes please, I cannot wait! If you want to join me at Bloom Bash you can purchase your tickets here. It is going to be so much fun and a great excuse to buy a new dress!!
