have a fantastic week!


happy lead into fall, how are you feeling? i've been feeling very reflective, moving slow, sometimes frustrated by how much i'm not getting done in a day, especially when i've planned a very productive day full of creativity and progress on projects. hey, i'm sure you've all been there. but instead of beating myself up, i'm embracing the days and the process, what is meant to be accomplished will be. 

i hope that you start out the week embracing what you don't know is going to happen. sometimes the best moments emerge and changed paths are all that more interesting. 

and if you are interested, some fun finds from around the world wide web: 

so much lighting goodness here. but these swinging wall sconces are a dream.
just bought these sandals in gold. because, gold. 
seriously love these pop pop tables.

i'm not usually a pink person but i like this. 

speaking of colorful, this shirt makes me happy.

i love a good scarf. this one is fun. 

i have a scarab necklace in sky blue stone, this one in gold is tempting. 

more yum, could eat these all. day. long.

haha, why every woman should own a pair of overalls. "overalls empower us to get work done." love that!

happy summer!


for some reason i can't explain really, i'm enjoying this summer more than in years past. slowing down a little, letting beach days dictate when to pack up and go home, or not. making sure i swim more because swimming in the ocean is rather life changing each and every time you do it. you just feel good climbing out, like something magical has washed over you. that, is the best feeling.

looking forward to a trip here soon, sunset schooner rides, slow summer lunches and ocean views to my hearts content. 

i hope that you are enjoying the heck out of whatever makes summer summer for you. and some fun finds from the world wide web:

happy long weekend!


here's to hoping you are enjoying the heck out of your long weekend! i will admit, like many of us, i'm in a sort of reflective mode as of late. jarring events in this country force an introspection, to arrange and work through feelings, anger, confusion, you name it. 

i hope that you are processing ok. that you are finding beauty around you. for me that's staying outside as much as i can. taking in everything in and around me that i am thankful for and more. so you'll find me listening to the chirping birds that wake me up every morning. reading curled up on the deck, embracing the warmth of the sun and the weight that it feels like it lifts while dave brubeck on shuffle plays in the background. sipping red wine slowly. and floating in my silly inflatable pool. because why not. 

and some fun finds from around the world wide web: 

just bought this summer bag. ( came just as it looked on line and so fun!)

so much goodness in these spaces, those warm brown nut colors throughout, gah, so good!

rug love. more. 

levis love.


loving this ventana glass display cabinet in classic black. this vintage cabinet is also stunning. 

this burl wood side table is special. and the pattern/texture it offers a space. 

i just really want this armchair. 

still mad for this ice blue fireplace frame. 

this brass sconce.

wow lighting. 

a beautiful sofa. 

a dream coffee table. 

his stunning glass works. that pink prominent piece speaks to me (and i'm not really a pink person)

would be interesting in an entry way.

i started following her on instagram. her floral arrangements are captivating and perfection in so many ways. 

the sweetest summer cottage. 


hair goals.
