kid's room decor

Moving in to our new house in Los Angeles shortly after finding out we were expecting a baby boy gave us the perfect opportunity to revamp Harlowe’s room. You may have seen her minimalistic room here before. We wanted to keep the room fairly similar and reached out to Laurel and Wolf for design assistance. After telling them […]

Unwash shampoo

The no shampoo or ‘co-washing’ method of caring for your hair with one all-in-one product has quickly gained popularity among busy, blowout loving women everywhere.  If you aren’t familiar, co-washing (short for conditioner washing) means cleansing your hair with one product that cleans, hydrates, and conditions in one step and it’s a total time, space and […]

Hi friends! Quick hello to share this golden yellow maxi dress. I love pairing animal print with yellow for Summer/Fall especially with a red lip. It’s the easiest combination and you can’t help but feel like a million bucks wearing it. Wearing: Maxi dress (also love this one for Fall)/ old espadrilles (similar here) / Reiss clutch […]

One of the things I’ve loved about moving to LA is that it gives us the opportunity to explore many new places. The Venice canals are one of those LA places I’ll probably never tire of. They’re tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the city making them a quiet retreat for family walks […]

I’ll be the first to admit I haven’t begun nesting. Now that we are this far in, I’m guessing it’s not happening. Aside from ensuring the necessities: car seat, bassinet, stroller, chilled chardonnay (hey, it’s been 9 months… I’m planning on having a glass the night we get home from the hospital) are secured, it’s […]

I don’t know about you, but I’m already falling for muted Fall colors. In LA, it doesn’t feel like Fall yet, since we had a major heatwave the past few days.  I’m compensating for the lack of chill with cooler colors. One of my favorite maternity brands, Isabella Oliver just got some of the cutest pieces in […]

Summer picnic1

Over the past five years and three apartments, there has been one consistent theme for my family: Living adjacent to a park.  My husband and I grew up in smaller towns and always had an outdoor space, so urban living has led us to seek out open, grassy, public parks as an extension of our […]

Free People Embroidered Fable Dress maternity

You know how I’ve been living in dresses lately? Well this one is the perfect beach-to-dinner, wear-while-pregnant-and-after, beachy dress that my closet needed. It is so light and comfortable and comes in four different colors. It was tough to choose one and I went with sage because I had absolutely no sage pieces in my […]

Everyday makeup look

There’s no better way to learn about Fall’s beauty trends than having a detailed makeover. I sat down with one of Ulta Beauty’s premier makeup artists, Aldo, to get the scoop on fall beauty and left with an everyday makeup look that makes a statement without being high maintenance.  Aldo informed me that Fall is […]

If you caught horizontal stripes: fattening or flattering? last week, you know my thoughts on the polarizing pattern. When worn right, they can be your wardrobe BFF. One thing I love about stripes is how “Parisian Chic” they feel especially when paired with something unexpected, yet simple like this crop top. This dress reminds me of the […]
