down at seaside

Typically we spend July 4th at the beach but this year we decided to change things up and relax at home. Lucky for us, the weather was perfect, and from the looks of the weather channel the rain has been nonstop at the beach. These pictures are from my last beach trip on an outing to Seaside. Seaside is the small picturesque beach town, most known for the set it played for the Truman Show. The small town is now jammed packed with people, shopping, beach homes and bikes.

Back in March I had the opportunity to spend a little time at shopSCAD, the retail works of Savannah College of Art and Design. What a magical store, everything you could creatively imagine. From hilarious letterpress cards, golden bones, the most amazing leather creations, to pottery and paintings so beautiful you can’t even imagine. Not to mention the worlds best gallery wall. Best part everything is for sale.

the doors of Savannah

Our trip to Savannah last weekend was a great one. There’s nothing better than a small southern town, filled with rich history. The houses were to die for, and I couldn’t help but capture all the colorful doors. It’s amazing the impact a bold door can make on an older home.

black & white in NYC

On my trip to New York last week, I couldn’t help but notice the abundance of black and white. From the windows at Bergdorf’s, to the floor tile at Magnolia Bakery, to the new arrival racks at H&M. Here are a few of my black and white NYC moments. Stayed tuned to shop the look later this week.

from nola, with love

At times like this it is difficult to write about materialistic things, after all it’s just stuff.  And as we know, way to well, down here in South Louisiana stuff can be replaced. Houses will be rebuilt, life as you knew it will slowly come back together {be patient and YES it will be very frustrating at times}. Communities will join hands and will be stronger than before. You will get through this, I promise, we did. And we continue to, as these terrible storms come ashore year after year.

For my friends on the east coast, we are thinking about you. And trust me we are all too familiar with the very raw emotions you are going through. At the end of the day it’s just stuff, so give thanks for those around you; your family, friends and support groups. And most importantly don’t forget to thank those first responders, energy workers, doctors and nurses who are working around the clock to get you put back together again.
