Spending time with my little man is amazing – the past week we’ve been venturing out, which has been good for the both of us. When walking the city I’ve come across some new coffee shops that I love. It’s incredible what you discover when you walk instead of driving around. I”m cherishing our coffee dates we’ve been having together.
For these dates I’m all about comfort and styling warm in the cool SF weather. A cozy knit and jacket are my necessities when getting ready to go out. Do you have any favorite pieces you like to wear when venturing out in your city?
Morning! I hope all of you had a wonderful long weekend. This weekend we decided to get out and about – lunch with friends, brunch at our local bakery and then venturing over the bridge for a day of errands to prepare us for the week ahead. I feel rejuvenated and inspired after this weekend. I’m currently working on a couple projects and can’t wait to do some sourcing for them this week. They are going to be stunning and I cannot wait to show all of you when they are finished this summer.
The New Year brings on a frenzy to do, including a massive clean out of closets with several trips to goodwill. I’ve been doing that the past week, but now I have an itch to do a bit of redecorating around the house to start off 2015. First order of business was to pull inspiration – I’m drawn to the all white, cozy rugs and endless unique pillows from all of these images. From there I put together a list of several things I’m on the hunt for – a few rugs, throw pillows, a wing-back chair and more.
One of my first stops is always Chairish – you never know what unique items you can find on their site. One client bought a pair of chairs from Chairish for $200 (they were meant to be completely redone) and reupholstered them in a stunning fabric. The chairs are now the highlight of their family room. I’m mostly looking for items to make my home feel a little more cozy these winter months. I pulled together a few of my favorites (above) that I’d love to add to my house.
A new year means new goals, new ambitions and a feeling inside you that makes you want to hustle through your weekly to-do list. Mondays oftentimes feel a little bittersweet. Lately I’ve been inspired to work on a few projects for later this year. While I’m technically on maternity leave for projects, I have to say, taking a little time off definitely gets my head swirling with ideas. Does that ever happen to you? Sometimes taking a step away brings on even more creativity.
Lately, I’ve been sporting more of a relaxed look around town. I’m all about comfort and outfits that can be thrown on without a lot of fuss. Let’s be honest, with a newborn you only really have about two minutes (if that) to get ready each day. Do you have a go-to outfit for when you are on the go to get things done?
I honestly cannot believe that four weeks have passed since we welcomed Jackson Flemming into the world. It has quite possibly been the best weeks of my entire life. He’s grown and changed so much in these few short weeks – at times I want to stop time so that I can cherish these first moments and milestones we’ve had together.
Jackson decided he wanted to join us a whole ten days early – I don’t blame him for not wanting to be born on Christmas Day. We weren’t quite prepared for him to come that early. We arrived at the hospital at 2am and twelve hours later we welcomed him into this beautiful world at 6 lbs and 11 oz. Both Eric and I have been completely in love ever since.
Each day brings on something new – whether it’s him opening up his eyes a little bit more, a new cry we haven’t heard before, or him sleeping an extra hour longer!
I’ll be sharing more soon on new-mom must haves (boy do I have a list) and much more! In the meantime, check back regularly for posts during this quiet time – I’ll be popping in regularly, but thanks for understanding me taking this time with my little man.
