Ohhh, fall. You do such crazy things to us. You make cool color loving girls like me want to buy everything orange and gold in sight. In particular right now, this rich and bold shade of autumn orange is just doing me in. Anyone else? My favorite way to rock orange is definitely with a pop of color in my accessories. Usually a great oversized scarf or a cute pair of flats or a little clutch. But I’m also loving …

Jewel tones have always been my favorites and over the last couple of years emerald has been the champion of the cause with me. As we head into fall, I’m loving this rich, gorgeous shade of green. Perhaps not coincidentally, I’m also loving malachite and banana leaf patterns at the moment, which are popping up in more and more places so there’s no stopping my emerald-loving ways at the moment. Pair this lovely linen shirt with your favorite boyfriend jeans …

Loving Metallic Gold Temporary Tattoos

Loving Metallic Gold Temporary Tattoos

Written by | filed under Fashion + Accessories | 4 comments

Is anyone else as obsessed with metallic gold temporary tattoos as I am at the moment? This is one of those trends that I think is absolutely amazing and I find myself hoping it sticks around for a long, long time. See, I’m a girl who is regularly awed by beautiful ink work, but ultimately has always been too chicken to commit to a real tattoo of any kind. While completely ink-free, I often find myself toying with the idea …

Shop By Pattern: Summer Stripes

Written by | filed under Fashion + Accessories | 1 comment

Gosh, I love stripes something fierce. And truthfully, while I’m pretty much stripes-obsessed all year long, I particularly love them in the summer months. They have that perfectly preppy feel that I really can’t get enough of during the hot summer months. Paired with denim or linen or chambray, stripes just get the job done for me. Right now as I’m working on holding onto summer tight with both hands, I’m particularly loving these striped out pieces. That duffle bag? …

Shop by Color: Blush Pink

Written by | filed under Fashion + Accessories | 1 comment

Sometimes a lady just likes to feel feminine and pretty, am I right? And in my book there’s no better color to evoke that feeling than blush pink. I think I love blush best when it’s used as a neutral and paired with other neutrals like black, white and ivory. Can we talk about these booties for a second? I think they’d make the perfect shoe for late summer right on into fall when they’d look adorable with jeans and …

Shop By Color: Chambray

Shop By Color: Chambray

Written by | filed under Fashion + Accessories | 0 comments

I have a major thing for chambray lately. In reality, I’ve always loved chambray, because it’s the kind of classically preppy and cool and that I love. Lately though? My love affair has reached all new heights. I’m chalking it up to chambray feeling especially perfect during the summer months. It’s chic and elegant while being comfy and casual, too. I know the other day I mentioned wanting to DIY some shibori curtains for our dining room…but maybe I want …

With the 4th of July coming up next week, it’s definitely time to chat about a little patriotic fashion. While I don’t necessarily condone donning stars and stripes head to toe, I am absolutely an enthusiastic advocate of busting out a little red, white and blue for your July 4th celebrations! I usually like to pair a navy sundress or maxi with a great striped scarf, but this year I’m also loving the idea of pairing a swingy striped tank …

This morning I was taking a look at the schedule for the upcoming weekend and realized we have no fewer than four picnics and barbecues to attend. You’ve gotta love summer for that one! Once the weather is nice, people just love firing up the grill and celebrating everything from the average Saturday to the biggest of life’s occasions outdoors. I don’t know about you but we have a lot of weekends this summer where our days are double or …

With the final countdown on to the start of Memorial Day weekend and with it the unofficial start of summer, I’m loving everything cobalt blue at the moment. Cobalt has long been one of my favorite colors, but I especially love it for summer. Paired with crisp white or tropical aqua, it’s kind of like the perfect summer color for entertaining and for your wardrobe in my book. These are some of the pieces I’m loving right now and would …

Inspired By: A Giant Bouquet

Have you guys seen this gorgeous giant bouquet? I’ve found myself staring at it off and one now for a couple of weeks because it’s just that lovely. And besides, it has me feeling all kinds of excited about spring!  (Because, you know, it’s finally creeping into the 40s this week so I have hopes that spring may actually show up sometime between now and summer.) Drawing inspiration from Brittni’s fabulous floral creation and the outfit Kelly (her model for …

Pretty for Spring: Glitter Nails

Pretty for Spring: Glitter Nails

Written by | filed under Fashion + Accessories | 3 comments

Approximately 100% of the time you’ll find me sporting bare nails. Between crafting, working with power tools and, as of late, painting what feels like around the clock, I’ve kind of resigned myself to the fact that my nails just aren’t cut out to look pretty. Also, I have freakishly long fingers and sometimes I feel like nail polish makes me look like a drag queen. (Which is kind of awesome in it’s own right, only not really when you’re …
