Crafter and pattern designer Alessa Lanot just launched the maiden collection of her new line with her fellow founding partners Julia Marie and Margaret Beatrice called Mari Mari. In case you were wondering Alessa's name also has "MAR" in it, Alessandra Marie thus the name of their new brand. For their first collection called Hardin at Habi, Alessa worked with local botanicals and native weaves, using gouache and watercolor on paper. Known for her handpainted patterns, her designs were printed on fabric to create the totally wearable shift silhouettes available in the collection. While the 5 different prints are available in shift tops, sleeveless tops, shift dresses, and skirt options, we're styling 5 tops in the Monstera & Yakan, Rosas & Laminosa, Sampaguita & Jute, Waling-Waling & Gaddang, and Milflores & Banig prints to show you just how versatile these gorgeous floral pieces are.

Balance the boxy silhouette by cinching at the waist with a white eyelet midi skirt and playing around with flirty tassel earrings in complementary colors and ruffled slides.
