{Free people top, Splendid skirt, Calleen Cordero sandals, Rag & Bone hat, and Lokai bracelet}

I'm not usually what you would call a boho child but since I was born and raised in sunny California, sometimes I can't help it. With the anticipation of summer beach days, road trips, and endless adventure I start to let my hair dry naturally and wear half the amount of clothing I should be.

Sun drenched

One of the best things about living in California is the weather. Homes are usually sun drenched for the most of the year so I love it when I see interiors that flow seamlessly into the outdoors. Stone floors that become patios, walls of clear glass, and windows tall enough to let in the afternoon light. This home brings the classic european architecture to the beautiful native hills of California.

{Theory top, Theory pants, Zara denim jacket, Celine bag, Fendi heels, and Gucci sunglasses}

Theory has the best trousers around. If you need a pair of structured pants for work or you just want to put together a tailored look, go for a solid black or a neutral print like this large check so that you can pair them with simple tops. I wanted to make this look go from the office to a casual lunch so I paired it with fun white pumps and a denim jacket.

NYFW Fall 2015

Browsing through the Fall '15 collections from NYFW a few pieces jumped out at me. Of course my favorite show was Ralph Lauren, his rustic chic aesthetic gets me every time. Growing up on a ranch and dreaming of high fashion I seem to always be drawn to Ralph's style. I love the use of large hats, suede, and lace (Im ready to purchase that white gown look asap). Tory Burch had really fun prints and colors this season. Her collection made me want to travel the world and come back with exotic rugs and clothing. And of course Victoria Beckham killed it with a sleek modern show. Somehow she can make oversized knit dresses look beautifully tailored and sexy. Plus that blue coat is adorable!

{Vince poncho, Mother denim, Vero Cuoio boots, Madewell top, Michael Kors watch, & Chanel bag}

Thanks to Burberry and many others the poncho look is back (my Instagram feed is full of them of fashionistas everywhere). I found this Vince oversized scarf on sale the other week and thought it could work as a wrap style poncho. Its reversible which is great for styling and went great with my camel brown leather boots. And what outfit doesn't look better with a Chanel boy bag?

Modern Vintage

All images via here

Its really special when you walk into a home and see artifacts of the couple/families adventures. It adds personality into the space and makes it one of a kind. Note to self: get one amazingly memorable thing from every trip you take, small or large, to put on your book shelves and coffee table. I also love the use of leather chairs and a mercury mirror in this California homes dining room, it is modern with a hint of vintage aesthetic!

{Vintage sweater, Current Elliott denim, Hunter boots, Reed Krakoff bag, Michael Kors watch and Alex & Ami bracelet}

When the storm clouds roll into view I start to feel a deep sense of contentment, like the rain is coming to nourish my soul along with the earth. I have always been strangely attracted to cold weather (snow & rain). Maybe because I grew up in the beautiful California (year round) sunshine, the opposite weather gained somewhat of a magical appeal. All I can say is that I am probably the only California girl with four pairs of hunter boots and plans to summer in Ireland.
