currently coveting no. 72


Oh hi, nice to see you again! It's been far too long since I've shared what's catching my eye. Right now I cannot get enough of interesting neutral pieces, whether it's through subtle patterns, textures, or finishing details like pom-poms, tassels, and fringe! As soon as it gets warm out, my wardrobe craves more free-spirited pieces.

1. Zara Eyelet Crop Top / Because what's summer without copious amounts of white eyelet? (Also comes in black if that's more your jam.)

2. Suno Embroidered Tunic / Suno makes some of the best printed pieces out there. After spotting this in a Steven Alan store, it's been on my wishlist. And now it's on sale, making it even more appealing.

3. Dieppa Restrepo Leon Loafers / A classic pair of nude loafers has been on my shopping list forever and these are the best option I've found.

4. Sophie Anderson Woven Bucket Bag / I spotted this bag over the weekend on instagram and it became an instant obsession. Sophie Anderson has some of the coolest woven bags out there for summer - think lots of geometric patterns and pops of color.

5. Parachute Cashmere Throws / I know it's summer and sweltering out, but you know the second you go inside you'll be in the arctic due to the A/C! I met the founder of Parachute, Ariel, this winter and she was wearing one of these as a scarf and looked so chic. I am convinced these are a year-round staple - perfect to keep on hand when you're in a cold office or movie theater and perfect for cuddling up with on the couch.

6. Ulla Johnson Cusco Wrap / This wrap is the perfect topper for any outfit. Think cool summer nights on the beach. Also here and here.

7. Coqui Coqui Amenities Box / I have yet to visit the infamous Coqui Coqui in Tulum (don't worry, it's at the top of my list), but at least I can make our apartment smell like it! This box comes with all the perfumery's best scents in shampoo, conditioner, bath oil, bar soap and cologne.

nyc staycation

This past Friday, Grant and I spontaneously decided to do a staycation here in the city. We had been toying with the idea for awhile, and when The Standard launched their new app, One Night Standard, and had $99/night rooms, we jumped at the chance to make our idea a reality!

We opted for a room at The Standard High Line over their East Village location so we could explore a different part of our city that we don't often get over to. After work, I ran home and quickly packed us a bag and headed to the hotel. Our room was perfect, with views of the High Line and the rest of the city.

We took the opportunity to get a little dressed up and went to dinner at a little Italian spot nearby and then had drinks at the hotel. On Saturday we got up and had brunch at The Standard Grill (order the cinnamon-sugar donuts!) and spent the afternoon wandering around the West Village. The neighborhood was buzzing with the reopening of the Whitney Museum so we stopped by to check that out. 

I highly, highly recommend trying out a staycation - it seriously felt like a true vacation, even though it was just for a night!

A few spaces that have caught my eye recently...

I can't wait for the day that we have a proper entry like this one. (And windows and floors like that, while I'm at it!)

I love how uncluttered this nightstand is, complete with a little tray beneath it for books and magazines.

Will someone please buy me an amazing tassel throw like that one??

I've been trying to slowly turn our apartment into a tame jungle and just added a new cactus friend to the mix. Now I'm on the hunt for the prettiest pots for them all!

all denim everything

When I mentioned last week that I'm obsessed with anything and everything denim, I really meant it. This year it seems like denim is making a heavy appearance in pieces besides jeans and I can't get enough. Washes are getting lighter, brighter and more saturated, distressing looks more natural and hems are frayed and raw.

One new style I'm really into is the quilted denim jacket - I don't have a regular jean jacket, but a quilted denim jacket seems like something I can get behind. (And yes, that one bomber jacket might be a children's jacket, but just buy the largest size and pretend the 3/4 sleeves are intentional.)

about that break...

It's been awhile - oops! I definitely did not set out to take a two-month break from here, but after some time away I'm anxious to get back at it. How has your 2015 been so far? Mine started off a bit rocky, but things are better now and I'm just counting down the days until spring!

Anyway, what's been going on?

Reading: Simultaneously reading two books - Yes, Please by Amy Poehler and Wild by Cheryl Strayed. Once I finish one of those I'll be reading The Girl on the Train for my book club!

Loving: My recent haircut. It's a little shorter and I've finally been able to get the hang of making waves with my curling iron, using the wrap technique. It's the little things.

Coveting: Anything and everything denim. Like these straight leg jeans. And this chambray shirt. These perfect high-risers. And the jeans I'll be wearing all spring. This is the plan for the next few months.

Needing: WARM WEATHER! Seriously, though - you West-coasters don't know how good you have it! Our trip to California in April cannot come soon enough. We're going on a family vacation to Yosemite (my first time!) and then spending a night in Palm Springs (which I cannot.wait.for). Send any recs!

Working: On lots of fun little freelance projects!

Finishing: My weaving from Maryanne's workshop that I took back in January. I'm loving the break from all the time I spend staring at a screen and want to turn it into a bigger hobby of mine! Who wants a weaving??


so long 2014

There's only a few more hours left in 2014 (at least for us on the east coast) and I wanted to take a moment to thank you all for your support this past year! It means so much to me that you keep coming back and reading (despite my large gaps in posting) and continue to inspire me. This space is so special to me and I am constantly amazed by the opportunites and people that it brings into my life.

A few highlights from the year...

+ Having our apartment featured on Design*Sponge...

+ And then being featured again about my job at Madewell...

+ Had my instagrams turned into prints...

+ Took numerous trips out to my adopted second home, LA...

+ Worked on some awesome freelance projects, including the new  Sara Kate Studios Shoppe... 

+ And established an amazing group of girlfriends who are equally supportive + hilarious...

Thank you ALL for such a great year - I look forward to seeing what 2015 brings!
