In the summertime I like to kick back and be a little bit more casual than normal. There’s something about warm summer days that make me want to throw my regular shoes to the curb for a good old pair of sneakers. We all have our trusty pair that we can’t live without. I for one would live in mine if I could. That’s why I wanted to share with a you a few styles I’ve worn in the past and a few I’ve been wanting to give a whirl.
Do you have a favorite brand of sneakers you adore?
When dressing up for events I’m constantly thinking about whether I have time to run home before the event or whether I’m going to have to wear what I’ve been running around town in all day. If that’s the case, I’ll usually bring a jacket and jewelry to make it more of a night look. In this case, I’ve found a shirt that has a side-slit (which is not shown in this picture) so it’s a little dressier than it looks. I love when a shirt looks as though it’s just your average shirt but then has a bit of a surprise to it. Don’t you? That’s what makes it perfect for a gallery opening, meeting girlfriends for cocktails before a show, or dressing it down and wearing it during the day.
After a whirlwind week in Raleigh, NC, it was such a treat coming home. While I feel incredibly lucky to be able to travel and discover new places there is nothing I love more than being back home. This weekend we escaped the fog and headed up to Marin for some sunshine, enjoyed an early morning run to the farmers market, and then spent the majority of the weekend planning out baby Flemming’s nursery. Lately I’ve felt like I’m constantly working on client projects that I haven’t had time to sit down to really brainstorm my own home. This was such a treat and definitely got me re-energized for the new week that lies ahead.
I hope all of you have a splendid week!

This summer I’ve been ditching my necklaces and resorting to wrist wear. There is something so fun about pairing together a handful of bracelets on your arm. I’ve been mixing and matching old vintage pieces that I’ve had stored away for entirely too long and paired them with more up-to-date pieces that bring in a whole new look. Together I feel like they are the perfect match. It adds that extra bit of fun in the morning when pairing them together. Do you have a grouping of bracelets you love wearing together on your arm?
