Lately, all I can think about is my upcoming vacation with my family to the San Juan Islands. This is a special trip for all of us because we are heading to a place where we went camping every summer during my childhood. The San Juan Islands are stunning and such an amazing place to go to escape and slow life down a little. We plan to make meals on the campfire, swim in the lake, play gin rummy for hours, read books, eat s'mores until our bellies hurt, lay in the hammock, go shop in the small island towns, ride the ferry and enjoy every second we have with one another. Yes, this all means, I absolutely can not wait! Here are some items I'd love to travel with:
Loving all things perforated or mesh like! This trend is definitely a must for this Spring!
With the few hints of sun that we had this week in Portland, it's making me constantly dream of spring days… Hurray for daylight savings this weekend! Just one step closer to fun sunny spring afternoons! Here is an outfit inspiration for the days to come, but it might be awhile until I can rock this without tights ;) xoxo
I have found quite a few images of raw hem denim on blogs lately, specifically in the skinny silhouette. Before I get rid of any of my jeans, I always think if I can cut them off into jean shorts… Well this might just be another option before I get rid of them! I think I like this trend!
After three years in the same glasses, I've decided to buy some new frames. Thinking about getting a few, so I have a little variety from day to day! So many cute options!
A few things I have been eyeing lately! Wishing everyone a lovely month! :) xoxo
I've been on the hunt for some good over the knee boots for this fall and I finally found a pair! I got the below Mia boots from Piperlime and then found some outfit inspiration images of different ways to wear them! xoxo
Roundup of some rad backpacks. Can I have them all?!?
This cold and rainy weather in Portland is making me long for the warm sun down in Cali I experienced a few weeks ago... For the time being I will be bundling up and daydreaming by looking at pictures. I found these cute sandals in Elle magazine and thought I would share for the Portlanders that might be going on vacation! ;)
I am all about being casual, comfy and cute ;) Here are some of my fall outfit inspiration photos.
Rain, rain, go away, come again another day! Well looks like Portland is in full swing with this rain stuff. Guess that means new rainboots and umbrella, although I never use umbrellas, hehe. These ones are cute though...
After going on a mini camping trip this past weekend for my birthday, I felt inspired by the camping vibe and threw together this little mix of things I love!
Throw back thursday! I designed this wedding dress for my cousin a few years back. She wanted a second dress to do a "trash the dress" photo shot after the ceremony in Mexico and asked me to create her one. I had to keep in mind the way the fabric would react in the water along with the silhouette and recovery of the fabric once it was underwater! It all started with concept sketches of dress ideas, then moved on to the actual pattern drafting and constructing the dress. Making this was so special and it meant the world to me to actually see her in it as well down in the Riviera Maya, Mexico, at their intimate wedding.
Loving these IX Huarache Sandals for summer. Makes me think of the huaraches my mom always use to wear when I was growing up. Might just have to get myself a pair!
Never to late to feel inspired by America. The warm summer air is so nostalgic and joyful; it is almost hard to sleep knowing it is so beautiful outside... Summer is all about road trips and spending time with loved ones having BBQ's in the backyard. Here is a roundup of a few things that inspire my summer:
Lovin' all the shades of blue in the Resort 2014 collections. Here are some of my favorite looks (left to right): Seas, Steven Alan, Karen Walker, Timo Weiland, Trina Turk, Rebecca Taylor, Catherine Malandrino and Kenzo. Can't get enough of these summertime blues!
