OUTFIT 6: HANGIN' BY THE SEA

We are off to San Diego & LA this weekend to see some friends and family! Can you believe it's my first time ever to LA?  I am going to try to not overpack (that's tough for me) and instead, stick to a few comfy versatile pieces like these. Hope you have a great weekend!


PERFECT PACKAGE

Love this product packaging. Found it here.

TEEPEE ME!

OH ME OH MY

I'm guilty of a little binge pinning tonight. These images are from here and here.

FOOD STYLING

Really beautiful food styling on this site. I'd happily eat at this cook's table. Found via Pinterest.

HAND LETTERED VEGAS

I finally got around to taking pictures of some of the hand lettered signs on Main Street. It was HOT out but it was worth the discomfort. There's so much character in these signs! You can see a few more on my Instagram.

3 PRETTY THINGS: GOLDEN PONIES

Golden Ponies is a lovely shop of handcrafted leather goods from Guadalajara, Mexico. These are my favorite picks, but I encourage you to visit the shop, there's lots of good stuff there and they are having an end of season sale.

I LIKE HANNAH

Found these pictures of the beautiful Hannah Metz here

LE DANS LA

Spent quite a bit of time looking at pictures on this pretty French blog today.

DRESS OF MY DREAMS BY M MISSONI


How perfect is this dress?! I mean wow! 

Usually I love Missoni for it's signature zig zags & vivid color combos. But here, they have taken this all white mod-inspired dress and relied on texture instead of color to make the pattern pop. The result is so sweet and demure!  I also really like the styling with these colorful accessories. The whole look is very nice indeed.

KITCHEN WITH A VIEW

This house in the Pyrenees mountains has some pretty amazing views, see more here.

SUNNY SIDE UP


This little collection of images is my visual ode to summertime. Even though I am battling some serious 100+ degree heat right now, it's a small price to pay for baby blue skies everyday. What would your ode to summer look like?

INSTADIARY 9


Here's what I have been up to lately:

1 & 2 - I ordered some awesome temporary tattoos from Tattly. Really fun and cute to wear.

3 - My vegetarian chili turned out tasty, it's a recipe adapted from the Mad Hungry cookbook. 

4 - Wil and I had some Gelato last night which is kind of a necessity in this 105 degree weather, yup- you read right, it's like an oven up in here!!

5 - A quick visit to our favorite new pizza spot in Vegas, Pop Up Pizza. We are thrilled to have them in our hood.

THE STARK WHITE TOWNHOUSE

Remember my last dream house post? Well here's another home I'd be ecstatic to live in. From the city block in Sweden where it's located, to the books on the shelves, this sure is perfection! See the whole shebang over on Yatzer.

PRETTY CASITA

These are some cheerful home goods I've come across recently on the internet. If you follow my Instagram, you know I love to cook (and eat). I also enjoy making my food snapshots look as appetizing as possible and a big part of that is, of course, making the shot look stylish and colorful. A simple way to do this is by mixing in some vibrant textiles, plates, and utensils.

Whenever my budget allows I try to stock up on some eye catching kitchen accessories. I'm a big fan of Marimekko so I just had to share these plates which are on sale now at Crate & Barrel! They're great for perking up your table for the summer! 

OUTFIT 4: MONDAY BLUES

I like to start Mondays off with comfortable and colorful outfits. I think it helps me get in the mood to tackle whatever the day brings. In my mind bold pieces shouldn't be confined only to the weekends. So go ahead, mix in some classics with a twist and let your personality shine through!

TREAT YOURSELF



STREET STYLE 1

These lovely ladies prove that rocking some black and yellow is not just for the bees!

THIS IS SUPERBAD



These are some promotional flyers I worked on this week for a DJ friend of mine Slopoke. If you are ever in SF on a Sunday night and looking for a good time definitely check him out at El Amigo Bar or on Wednesdays at the Church Key in North Beach! 


RECENT DEVELOPMENTS



Life is really great right now. I bought a new car last week and we went on our first mini road trip to the Hoover Dam on Sunday. Hopefully that will be the first of many adventures this summer! I am trying to convince Wil to go to LA this weekend, wish me luck, because he is all caught up in work right now. So yeah, I am sooo smitten with my little car, I even caught myself singing this song the other day while driving. Ok, I'll stop gushing now. Promise. 


MARC JACOBS RESORT 2013


Oh Marc Jacobs you can do no wrong by me! I highly recommend you check out the rest of this collection here, it seriously brightened my day!

RENE GRUAU


I wanted to share some of my favorite works by fashion illustrator Rene Gruau. He was a master of bold color pops and effortless glamour. The women in his illustrations make me dream of adventures in far off places dressed in expensive clothes... See more of his work here.
