I'm so excited to introduce..
daily updates!! I'm the only one who does Instagram stories and finds the content. I just post what I love, what I see when I travel, family, helpful tips or nuggets, fashion etc. I love it this way - it's never planned and it's just kind of whatever comes to me and whatever happens during my day - just like what a normal day hanging out. The problem is that instagram stories only last for 24 hours. SO, each day we are going to write out a post with all of the details from my instagram stories with links, which will be in a more permanent place on the blog for you to reference!! We know life gets busy and sometimes you miss Instagram stories, now they will be in a place you can always find!! (and you won't have to wait for me to respond on DMs ;)
It was so fun to finally get to Austin!
This was a last minute trip to head to the BRIMM workshop about scaling, business and connection. I try to go to three conferences a year, but I have to seek them out because they are hard to find! They always have such great speakers and I come away with something I want to work on or a new collection or collaboration. We stayed at The Austin Proper Hotel designed by Kelly Wearstler (one of my FAVORITE designers). You know my love of boutique hotels, and this was such a cool place. They do such a good job using browns, golds and creams. I'm so used to seeing greys and whites! It gave me so many fun design ideas!
This tiled wall in the restaurant is insane. PLUS they use the Aesop products - some of my faves!
By now you know, Kopal! We did our table linen collaboration together, so I know you've heard me talk about her company a million times, but it's all hand blocked in India! Kopal sent me a new dress and I finally got to wear it! I paired it with the Pebble Beach Earrings, Austin Necklace (one of my favorite seed bead necklaces we've brought to you), Double Heart Necklace, and Austin Bracelets. I grabbed my Meanwhile Back on the Farm bags and was ready for the second day at the conference! Head over to this blog post to read more about where we ate, what we did and more jewelry I brought with me!
Speaking of Kopal...
I always love seeing how you guys style your Table Linens! My friend Kelly sent me a photo of her table and it is so beautiful! I love how she paired our tablecloth with her own napkins!! She bought the bud vases I shared with you guys over on instagram - they look so great!!
It came full circle...
Attending the Veronica Beard event here in Charlotte! Usually when there are lunch events I rarely go, because it is so hard for me to refocus on work once I leave the house for the day. But this one was special to me! In college when I was working at the Charlottesville Farmers Market, selling jewelry at 5:30 in the morning on Saturday mornings, I decided I was going to save up to buy a Veronica Beard blazer. Each week I would put my money aside for this BIG splurge for myself. I finally saved up enough money to treat myself and I still wear it to this day - it is one of those investment pieces that will truly be a staple in your closet for years to come! I love her blazers! I was invited by Peachy Magazine (a really cool online magazine in Charlotte that you can follow for fashion, entertaining and local goodies) to a lunch for Veronica Beard to celebrate their store opening in Charlotte. It's such a full circle moment for me and I was SO excited! They gifted me an outfit to wear for the lunch - an awesome jacket and matching shorts. This jacket is super cool - it has a vintage look with all the yummy details. You can totally dress it up or keep it casual and wear it with white jeans, jean shorts, ripped jeans, t-shirt, over your shoulder... the options are endless! I belted the jacket and wore it with the new California Coast Necklace, Multi Wood Hoops, Sense of Wonder Bracelet bundle and the Be Cool Neon Clutch.
New this week and what I packed for Palm Beach
Our California Coast Necklace is finally ready for you! This one has been a favorite in our permanent collection and we have been working hard to restock it for you! We also launched the Summer in Paris Necklace this week, you can read more about it here. My travel outfit was made complete with the Sunny Side up Earrings, Summer in Paris Necklace, and Heart Toggle Necklace. The first night at dinner I layered the Annie Necklace with the new Morning Beach Walk Necklace and the Palm Beach Necklace. The next night I kept on my Morning Beach Walk Necklace and paired it with the Pebble Beach Earrings and the as Good as it Gets Bracelet Bundle. I also brought the Be Cool Neon Clutch with me! In my opinion, you can pair neon with everything - it's just a fun and unexpected pop of color! Can't wait to share more details from the trip with you! Stay tuned!
