What a stunning color/inspiration board, and just to think that the wardrobe you create will be a reminder of your trip every time you wear pieces from it. Looking forward to seeing the finished grouping!

Beautiful colors! Could bring in accents with that beautiful hair and eye colours - warm is your forte so maybe add other colours of the sea - bronze/gold accents could be incredible.
