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!

Christian Dior’s Romantic Fall 2017 Collection

Winter is calling to me already. I think it’s because I’ve been deep in the creative process for my Winter collection and shop rebrand and I’m feeling a true visceral connection to it all. So much so that I’ll be modeling the pieces myself, which I hope doesn’t come off as narcissistic, but truth told I’m so resonant with the aesthetic as it mirrors this stage in my life. Both empowering and light-filled. And simply designed (I’ve craved simplicity). So as I’m preparing wardrobe and location for the photoshoot, I’ve decided to stick to neutral with subtle to no adornment, save for the actual collection pieces. I think that’s why this Christian Dior Fall 2017 line stopped me in my tracks. Gorgeous, tailored perfection, and oh so romantic…all without the pomp and circumstance of too much flashiness. Lovely and calming too, I think… Peep more of this collection over on Vogue!

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!

5 Pretty Shoes to Make Your Feet Gorgeous

For the past month I’ve been without my favorite everyday shoes, platform Mary Janes. They are the most comfortable heels I own and are stylish enough to pair with most any pretty day-to-day outfit. And anyway, they’re so worn, in fact, that  the buckles and soles have been beaten up and need to be repaired (and is it normal for this to take a month? Busy cobbler.) My feet are missing them dearly. But soon soon… To keep my mind occupied, I’ve been daydreaming about pretty shoes. Like these… And for kicks, these darling socks. [ 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 ]
