I'm in awe of how inspiring the studio space of Matt Dick of Small Trade Company is! The light, the inspiration wall, the color-coded books - it's all so incredible! I would be so inspired to work here everyday!
Another weekend, another wedding! But this time it's my brother's - I'm so excited to be a part of this special time for him. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
P.S. Megan wrote an awesome post yesterday on slowing down and living with intention - it's a must read!
I went to La Colombe for the first time this weekend and now it's my favorite coffee spot. Besides the delicious coffee, the decor is totally my style. There's beautiful tiles, modern light fixtures and great photography by the shop's manager, Douglas Takeshi Wolfe. I'm particularly into the above photo from his "Rest" series and love visiting it while I'm waiting for my coffee.
I've been a follower of the brand WHIT for awhile and am so excited about her recent collaboration with Anthropologie's Made in Kind series, WHIT Two. Her pieces are always classic with a touch of playfulness - a look that has become her signature. And on top of that, she has an amazing eye for prints. The collection includes an assortment of dresses, skirts, tops and bags. I'm definitely eying that striped dress!
I don't have many words to describe how obsessed I am with Emily Henderson's living room. I'm always amazed at her ability to mix high/low and new/vintage pieces and this room is an incredible example. Those leather safari chairs are beyond and I now need to have a campaign dresser! I also love seeing the sconces from Onefortythree in use - I have this lamp of theirs on my wishlist.
I recently bought Essie's Absolutely Shore and have been obsessed with the color ever since. It's the perfect pastel blue/green that somehow goes with everything. Now I'm on the hunt for other ways to bring this hue into my life!
While out in the Hamptons, we paid a visit to the newly opened Serena & Lily Beach Market store. It was my first time seeing their products in person and I was in love with everything! Unfortunately, a lot of it is only available at the store, but I was particularly smitten with this turkish towel, these chic placemats, and this decadent blanket (high on my apartment wishlist).
A few things I'm loving this week...
+ the pre-fall Loeffler Randall collection rocks - especially these black heels
+ answered a few questions over at The Lacquerie
+ loving the new look of a favorite brand, Cuyana & their new collection
+ anxious to try this new hair serum from my favorite brand
I'm definitely a flats girl and right now, I'm on a huge sneaker kick. I especially love the way sneakers make a dressier outfit more casual and comfortable. I have an old pair of white Chucks that I'm dying to update - here are a few pairs I'm considering:
Which would you choose?
I'm so ready to move right into this Silver Lake home! I love the mix of traditional elements, such as the fireplace and arched windows, mixed with more modern furnishings. And I'm incredibly envious of those bookcases!
Happy weekend! I'm checking out a bit early to head out to the Hamptons with Sarah and Mackenzie for our dear friend Sarah's wedding! It's the first wedding I'll be attending as an adult/friend of the couple and I'm so excited to celebrate with them. Also looking forward to quality beach time and exploring the area!
Once the weather warms up, I'm itching to ditch my everyday bag for something more easygoing. I tend to gravitate toward simple silohouettes, crossbody styles and a pop of color.
So many great options, I'm having a hard time choosing a favorite! Which one would you get?
A few months ago I was introduced to Kule and was instantly smitten with their classic pieces and unique accessories. Since I am always on the hunt for the perfect striped top, I was ecstatic to receive their Preston cashmere striped sweater. To say I love this sweater would be a huge understatement - I wear it at least once a week, if not more. It's the perfect transition sweater, carrying me from season to season, pairing effortlessly with everything in my closet. And not to mention it's incredibly soft!
Kule has kindly offered a 15% discount off their site through June 5, with code DREAMSANDJEANS. Check them out and let me know what you love! (P.S. if you go for the sweater, it runs small, I'm wearing a medium!)
I'm pretty convinced that Australians have the most beautiful homes after seeing so many spectactular one's on Lucy's blog. The home of Cassandra Karinsky is no exception. The light is amazing and I love her varied use of textures. Be sure to check out her store, Kulchi, which is full of beautiful rugs and objects.

Happy Memorial Day weekend! I couldn't be more excited about the start of summer fridays and a 3-day weekend! I'll be heading out to NJ to see some family and spend time outside of the city.
+ loving the new Lo & Sons Catalina Weekender featured above (save 15% with code HELLOCATALINA)
+ obsessed with this "living atrium" featured on Domaine
+ planning on scooping up this silk tank (check the back!) & embroidered dress (maybe both colors?!)
Spring in New York is one of my favorite times - days are longer and the city truly comes alive with restaurants opening outdoor seating, flowers and trees blooming and ice cream trucks popping up on every corner.
