Something about a bathing suit brings a smile to my face. It makes me think back to times as a child running through the sprinkler in the back yard, going to swim team practice and hanging at the neighborhood pool all summer. As an adult, it reminds me of the tropical vacations I have taken, summer holidays at my parents condo on the beach in Florida and the relaxing feeling of being close to water.
Dorothy Shain visited New Orleans a few years back and I discovered her amazing bikini paintings and just learned today – she has prints – thanks Instagram! They are retro, playful and full of character – and I think I need three!
I’ve been following Mandy Moore’s home renovation project on her insta stories for the last year or so and have been SO inspired by the snippets she has shared. Today her full home tour was release on AD.com and she and her home grace the July cover. A midcentury vibe, a touch of blush, mixed metals, a marble kitchen and the most amazing bath tub views – sign me up!
It’s no secret Target has been on top of the home game for a while now. When the Opalhouse collection was released I couldn’t wait to get a closer look. More pieces from the line have continued to be introduced and the accent chairs have my eye. How fabulous is the cane back chair? Thinking I may need two.
Now that I own my own house entertaining has been top of mind; especially since the longer days of summer are officially here. Aerin Lauder is back at it again with Williams Sonoma adding even more amazing pieces to her everyday collection. The wine bucket is first on my list – just the perfect piece to chill your summer rose.
Must have jeans for Spring – the kick crop by Everlane! I just received the white pair and know that they will be a staple for me this Spring and Summer. Best part, they work for any height, and come with easy instructions for cutting. I think I may need the light denim pair too!
I recently picked up several Ouai travel size products at Sephora over the holidays and I can’t say enough great things about them. Not only are they the perfect size to travel with but they smell amazing and work really well. My favorites so far are the texturizing hair spray, the dry shampoo and the hair treatment mask. Shop the full line here!
I’m on the hunt for a new coffee table and have looked at everything from brass, to marble, wood and even lucite. A black coffee table was not on the list, but the more the hunt goes on the more I am leaning towards black. Majority of my living area is neutral and white, I think solid black maybe just the contrast I need.
