February cravings / 7 items for yourself and your home

This was only hours away from being a last ditch effort at a “January cravings” and yet the whole first month of the year went by without sharing a wishlist. How is January even over? How is 2017 even over? It will never cease to boggle my mind how tim…

September cravings

A new month brings a new wishlist, or cravings as I have apparently begun calling it. A little of this and a little of that, cravings are items I’m liking at the moment for the home, to wear or to use personally. A button down shirt dress from COS / F…

Inspired by Totême’s SS18

Elin Kling’s Totême line has the most beautiful basics, their current line consists of these shaped trousers and sweater that are absolutely on my wishlist. The pieces feel timeless yet ultra current, sleek and minimal as well as flattering. What I’m really liking however are the photos of Totême’s SS18 collection which includes the bottom photos, like that double breasted trench and a gauzy tunic. Even though the fashion world thinks a year in advance, I find it a little bind blowing to think of Spring and Summer of 2018! We still have very hot weather here so I’m not even in Fall mode yet!


Shades of Clay

A color I’ve been seeing more of lately, including here on the blog, and a color I suspect we will be seeing much more of in the coming months. Here are a few I’ve liked recently:Lizzie Fortunato fringed earrings Terra-cotta candle holder from Odem Ate…

Oversized shirting and billowing fabric dominate A.W.A.K.E.’s Resort’18

Thinking of 2018 is almost unbearable for me, I’m just getting used to writing 2017 six months in! Yet for those who work and design for fashion, they’re been planning for next year probably before this one even got started.

This new collection from a brand I’m not familiar with is filled with generous amount of gathered and flowing fabrics, multiple uses of shirting as dresses, skirts and tops and palazzo style trousers. Personally I’d love to wear any of these this Autumn, given I had some place interesting to wear them too, of course!

Scroll below to see more of the line and a few of their current season’s pieces!

Using yellow in interiors

In the past I have been opposed to yellow in general, speaking out against it and then only mildly in favor of it in posts past. Generally speaking I’m not one to get excited about bright colors, but what’s the point of an opinion if you can’t change it? Lately I’ve seen more golden mustard yellows and I am really warming up to the look, especially when paired with another warm neutral like a pale brown or taupe.

Above is pictured a project by Claude Missir and features Synapse pendant lights from Apparatus Studio.

I’ve also gathered a few more favorites in this golden yellow shade below, including a non-interior piece, a dress by Lauren Manoogian that is just the perfect warm color for Spring.

All Blues

Inspired by the styling for All Blues’ egg themed collection which features the eggshell necklace, yolk earrings, and egg white single earring. Also, part of a different collection is this Fat Snake ring which I’ve been thinking about non-stop for wee…

Telling time with VOID

An independent watch brand started by Swedish designer David Ericsson in 2008, VOID makes telling time an incredibly stylish affair. Their imagery and clock designs use simple designs to honor their Swedish heritage. While I normally choose very subtle…

Ring in the New Year with comfort

In case you’re not out partying and celebrating the New Year, you might want to stay in, get cozy and welcome 2017 in comfort. That’s what I plan to do anyway! Getting the kids to bed early, eating some crab and some pasta, a bit of wine…then likely …

gift wishlist

A little wishlist for myself for Christmas, although I’d also be perfectly happy to simply spend the quality time with my family, any of these would also do! ;)

5 mid heel ankle boots

From the last post I shared a few things I liked and mentioned that I’ve been hunting for ankle boots, so I thought I’d share with you some that I’ve been looking for, all with a mid sized heel. When I was younger I remember my mom would explain that f…

Bepart Studio jewelry box

A couple weeks ago I shared a peek of this beautiful jewelry box from Bepart Studio. This genius wooden box comes with three tiers of shelves made custom for earrings, rings and other small accessories. There’s also a single level version if you like to see all your pieces at once. The earrings, like this silver cuff style, are also from Bepart, a pair that I often receive compliments for when I wear them.

Please be sure to check out the very talented Petra and her wonderful store and beautiful creations. You can also easily shop below or in my shop!

a dress with an undone hem

This Painter Dress from Black Crane has a raw, frayed hem and puckered texture that make it look comfortable and easy. At least you won’t have to worry about wrinkles, anyway! I’m all about varying textures right now.

dressing with ease

Monday can be hard enough with the work and/or a school routine, waking up early and realizing you have the whole week ahead of you. To counter the pressures of Monday obligations I thought of what I’d want to wear to make the getting-dressed portion a…

circle bag

Major purse love, this suede circle crossover from Baggu.

rose colored glasses

I buy at least two pairs of sunglasses every Summer, it’s not because I lose them but because I always end up buying $8 H&M shades or something else that seems like a good idea in the moment but have no staying power.
This year I really wanted to break that cycle of cheap sunglasses so when Triwa offered to send a couple pairs my way, I enthusiastically agreed!
I suppose this is a bit of a tease because this is one of two pairs but I really liked these Peach Nicki‘s since I predictably almost always choose black. They come in a firm case that for me is a necessity as they will got tossed around the inside of my car and purses.

something to wear

Because finding something to wear is a daily struggle (let’s not even talk about the random weather patterns) and I’m always look for “mom clothes”, meaning stuff I can wear while taking care of the kids and not feel ridiculous or overdone/underdone. A skirt with an elastic waist and a textured tee? Yes.

the sleep shirt

Over the past few years I’ve grown a fondness for linen. Maybe you’ve noticed here and there on the blog I post photos of my linen bedding or throw pillows or the material shows up in a ‘wishlist’ item as well. I didn’t always love the wrinkly, texture…
