The Winter Light | California Dreaming Jewelry Collection is here!

Friends! Peep the shop for the new collection, Winter Light… inspired by universal love, my fascination with the cosmos, and the redeeming power of being a signal for light.  And hey! I modeled the collection and, if you’re curious, read my reasoning behind that choice is in my About page.  For now, enjoy the bold and beautiful illumination of these designs… More here!

Art Crush / The Color Factory Exhibit in San Francisco

Have you heard about The Color Factory? It’s a new pop-up exhibit in San Francisco that runs through the month of August (and I just heard it sold out! But word is they’re now extending its run into September…). You guys, you have no idea how bummed I am to be missing this. If only I timed my trip to align with getting a chance to explore this hopped up color haven. Oh does San Francisco know how to inspire. Sigh. This from their site, “This two-story interactive exhibition celebrates color and material, featuring work by some of our favorite artists and collaborators: Jacob Dahlgren, Tom Stayte, Geronimo Balloons, Tosha Stimage, Stanton Jones, Andrew Neyer & Andy J. Miller, Carissa Potter, Jessica Hische, Rebecca Wright, Randi Brookman Harris, Leah Rosenberg and Erin Jang. Lose yourself in 10,000 colored ribbons, sink into a giant yellow ball pit, catch some rainbows, smell colorful memories, and taste a spectrum of treats from our favorite stops in San Francisco. The pinks will delight you, the blues will amaze you, the yellows might make you hungry.” And from Architectural Digest, “Color Factory is home to 15 site-specific works by artists and creatives, with a mix of local and global talents. “Our goal was that each installation would meet three criteria,” says Ferney. “It would be conceptual, [be] beautiful and photogenic, and be an experience you couldn’t get anywhere else.” Some rooms focus on a single shade, such as Bay Area artist Tosha Stimage’s assemblage of orange objects and British artist Tom Stayte’s violet selfie installation, while others celebrate the full color spectrum. Jang created a variety of rainbow spaces, from a plaid mural to the striped reception room.” San Francisco friends, please go and gush about it to me, so I can pretend I was there too. Yes? Sigh.

Resort 2018 / Carolina Herrera’s Exuberant Collection

As if the color block wonderland (those belts!) wasn’t enough, Carolina Herrera’s vibrant 2018 Resort collection feels ever more life-giving with the addition of floral accents. I’m loving this description from Vogue… Optimism and prettiness have long numbered among Carolina Herrera’s signatures, but she’s done a particularly good job evoking them with her new Resort collection—at a time when we (fashion, America, the world) have never needed them more. Herrera said she looked to the gardens at her home in her native Venezuela for her flower motifs, and the exuberant colors she pulled from them for other pieces. What was noteworthy about her palette this season was its mix-and-match freedom. A breezily terrific gown in pink and blue striped technical taffeta was finished with a cherry red sash belt, and she combined unexpected hues just as nimbly elsewhere. Pretty uplifting, huh?

7 Things I’m Loving Sunday / Sweetly Colored Edition

What have you been up to this weekend? I spent yesterday at an annual Summer Solstice Parade house party (Santa Barbara stops everything for this event; party-central) The post-festivities were held at a beautifully styled older home, with just the prettiest tablescape filled with the tastiest food, colorful art installations, and an entourage of fun bands that played into the night. I absolutely loved it. Today, I’m going chill with my friend Laurie before we head over to watch the new movie Beatriz at Dinner. Looks GOOD. Have you seen it? I’ve also really been admiring these cuties; sweetly colored designs sure to make you feel happy on this Summery Sunday. The bathing ladies art print above will help kick things off for ya… Can I get away with pairing this pom pom purse with these floral heels? I’d like to eat these Fruity Pebbles Krispy Treats while staring off at this adorable rainbow vase… These rad bikini bottoms (love the high waist!) and this darling rainbow baby quilt DIY… Instant happy. Hope the rest of your weekend is a good one! p.s. I’ll be adding new stuff to the shop this week, so keep an eye out!
