Spring is Coming.

Hang in there, baby. We're almost there. File as spring awakening.

Getting Warmer.

Things that are making me feel more like summer (and also myself) could be just around the corner: Capri mornings via Slim Aarons, Mara Hoffman psychedelic prints, sunbathing cats (durr) and little eyelet sets. Meowww.

Eyes Closed or Open, Just Dream.

Been feeling not quite like my best self lately - sucks how much one teeny person in your life can make you feel lower than low sometimes. Cue my mother's advice: on to the next adventure. My daydreams might have changed a bit these past few weeks, but I'm already starting to see something that doesn't look half bad.

Thoughts on Shuz.

Closet update is in full swing - hellooooo Poshmarkers - but that doesn't mean I can't take a peep at what's out there to replace my soon-to-be much emptier closet. It's true: good shoes take you good places. Let's shop.

Zippers just require an extra step in the laborious process of putting on shoes - and I always end of leaving mine down anyways. 

Mulling over these Isabel Marants again. I know they're sooooo 2012 but seriously fuck trends ya'll.

Stretchy, preferably suede(y), low heeled and with a slightly pointed toe ... you. are. it.

What to Wear, Where

Daydreaming about future travels per us(ual) and started to feel like all my favorite pieces had a destination to match them or vise versa. Haven't made up my mind completely about when/where I'll go next (my For Love and Lemons is calling Florence, my Zara low pumps Rome, and my Stone Cold Fox some farm in the middle of nowhere) but I'll for sure blend in.

Paris + legzzz for days

 Provence + a nothing maxi dress

Paris + the perfect vintage suede mini --- currently hunting for you at flea markets across Southern California

 Venice + denim on denim on Chanel

Rome + flirty floral dresses

Pinky Promise.

I recently told my best friend that I wanted to wear a bright rosy pink dress to her wedding and while I instantly cringed waiting for her (text) response, I was shocked to receive a resounding yasssssss (almost exact words) from her ...maybe included a few (ok a lot of) emojis. Than it got me thinking: why have I had this aversion to pink (or most colors for that matter) of late? Buying the dress, wearing it loud and proud, YOLO. File as color bomb.

She Who is Brave is Free.

yup, dats me 10 years apart

Last weekend, I got my passport photo taken for the first time in 10 years. 10 years. I was flipping through my old passport - with stamps from 10 countries including my Italian Visa - and it got me meditating on the how much I can't stand to stay in one place for too long - even if it just means a weekend getaway. I think about where my mind goes when I'm not focused on work, life or anything of any importance; and it always goes straight to where the next ticket will take me.

This might be a good time to mention that I also partially stalk the Instagram feeds of @margaret__zhang, @lusttforlife, @garypeppergirl@blisskatherine not because I particularly like their style (scratch that, yeah I do) but because they also have some of the dreamiest, Pinterest-worthy travel photos around.

I've been to some pretty incredible places in my life thus far and I'm still not quite sure where the next 10 years will take me, but I really hope that it's to a whole lot more places that I've never seen before (and maybe back to a few that are calling my name.) File as wanderlust.

Home is Where the Heart Is.

One of the projects that I feel I'm always tragically failing at has to be to bring more art into my home. While my last two places in Berkeley each had their own rotating gallery walls and a few DIY hangings, this newer (and by new I mean I've lived here for almost 14 months now...) place didn't quite get the same wall art love. I've put up a few finds from Melrose Trading Post, but it's still not the curated collection that I've dreamt it to be.

And with Valentine's day right around the corner (hashtag treating self) I'm feeling totally inspired to add a few more pieces to my walls. Whether it be one of the perfectly adorable art prints from Minted (fave new find for when you're feeling Etsy-ed out) or a 3 dimensional DIY install like the heart above (via Minted's equally lovely blog Julep) it'll be the perfect way to show my place a little love. File as home, sugar.

Update Nothing, Impress No One.

Yeah, yeah it's been a while since I've posted here. Chalk it up to the fact that I've moved on to a new role with the insanely-just-a-smidge-too-cool-for-me Malibu-based company Planet Blue and have spent the majority of my weekends unplugging from my digital domain. Seriously upping my game as I type... As always though, I had to come back if not just to share what I'm currently obsessing over (and have been pinning like mad.) File under see you around more often.

After a terrible haircut over Thanksgiving break that's literally scarred me for life (actual time: until it grows out) I'm tempted to do something drastic. Good luck trying to talk me out of this one.

Paris is always a good idea. The only question is how much willpower I have to save and not spend pre-getaway.

As a notorious nail biter (natch, only when my anxiety is high) nail art has never really been my thing. But maybe the promise of artfully designed nails will curb my habit.

There comes a time every year when I want to completely redecorate my surroundings. The time is nigh. 

Just couldn't resist this one. #firstworldproblems
