Open

Industrial spaces are great home with lots of open space but usually feel cold and too modern. I saw this article and thought, yes now that is how you make a industrial home cozy. Im a huge fan of real wood burning fireplaces, as that is what I grew up with. Organized shelving in kitchens are great for displaying unique dishes and glassware. Antique pieces, outdoor patios, and a long dinner table for guests make the space inviting and fun.

Sporty













Recently I have been really into a tomboy/sporty aesthetic because it seems like I am always running around and usually need to be cute but comfortable. This is my idea of a sporty around town outfit. My new obsession are these Prada espadrilles that go so well with a good pair of boyfriend denim, and an athletic hat. Sporty spice it up with a oversized print jacket and a bright colored bag.

Its the time of year for wedding planning. If you are recently engaged and thinking about your special day's design take a look at this inspiration mood board I compiled for a rustic elegant affair with luxury detailing. This event would look great at a private estate or winery.

Lowlands

Click... hair up... continue





{Max Mara T-Shirt, Theory Blazer, Mother Denim, Barney's Belt, Stuart Weitzman Boots, Reed Krakoff Bag, Marc Jacobs Watch}



Its only slightly embarrassing how much I wanted a pair of thigh high boots but since I am a bit short with small calves I couldn't find any that didn't overwhelm my body and look ridiculous. When I found these Stuart Weitzman Lowlands in a beautiful taupe suede I looked like a kid on Christmas morning. But I had to order my size so I waited patiently (or not so patiently) for them to arrive and now I can't stop wearing them. They are casual but chic and as comfortable as my couch.

Lofty

I had to repost this feature on Kirsten Dunst's quirky city loft. My boyfriend and I have always thought it would be fun to live in an industrial type place while we are young. This apartment made us both swoon. With beautiful views, wood flooring, and a large kitchen we would move in immediately!

Clementine







{Rails plaid top, Vince sweater, Mother denim, Manolo Blahnik heels, and Nasty Gal clutch}



Girls tell me all the time that they just stick with black and white because its timeless and classic, which I totally agree with but whats life without some color? I say don't be afraid to have color in your wardrobe. If fashion is a way of self expression your outfit should be as bright and playful as you are. For my personality that means I should be wearing some crazy color combos. Example A is this fun look with bright blue Manolo Blahnik's, an orange sweater, and a Rails plaid top.

I love awards season because its a non stop source of entertainment and glamour. The Red Carpet at last nights Golden Globes was surprising. My girl Amy Adams stole the show at #1 in a pale blue... I mean her eyes were sparkling like diamonds. I was also digging all of the pastel colors like yellow this year, great choices Leslie and Jenna! And of course the ever playful Emma Stone rocked a bedazzled pant suit like no ones business. Not to mention the classic sexy white showstoppers on Siena and Chrissy. Don't even get me started on how funny Tine Fey and Amy Poehler were! Props always go out to the styling and h/m crews that make it all happen behind the scenes.
