FINALLY, it's Fall!! wooowhooooo! i could not be more excited to break out the boots and throw on the scarves!
i also have a little tradition during this extra special time of year... every Fall season I like to peruse Pinterest and my good ole' Fall Fashion Mags for some seasonal inspiration! I pin my pins and tare my favorite looks in hopes to actually try out one new trend or to find the perfect new Fall piece!
Fall is by far my favorite time of the year! the weather starts to get cozy and cool, the fashion trends begin to change (and i get to pull all my favorite boots, sweaters, and hats out of the closet), and i always try out new warm and hardy recipes... plus, overcast rainy weather is my ultimate weather!
so here are a few things i'd like to do this cozy Fall ahead...
1. do more yoga.
2. finished one of my half knitted scarves from last Fall.
3. find a chai tea latte recipe and master the art of chai tea lattes at home.
4. find the perfect booty (short boot) to wear with skinnies boyfriend jeans or tights & a dress.
5. bake cookies for a friend.
6. clean out my closet (or at least all the summer stuff).
7. learn how to make banana bread from the fireman's aunt.
8. reorganize all my scarves, handbags, and shoes.
hellllllllllllllo my long lost blogging buddies! i'm sorry i've been a bad blogger lately, but it turns out that morning sickness is the real deal and ALSO.... it's not just in the morning! (i think i guy named it "morning sickness", just sayin). so yep, the fireman knocked me up! (lol) but seriously, we are BEYOND thrilled and now that we know what little thing is (a girl) we are over the moon and already obsessed with her!
so with that and the new online boutique Wool + Rose & that KTLA morning news thing... this little mama has been busy! so, i hope you're all doing well!!! i've missed you and your comments. and now that i'm feeling better... you'll have to stay tuned for some baby-mama posts, online boutique newsletters, and maybe even a occasional What I Wore!! yup, i'm going to do my very best to get some maternity What I Wore's up on the blog! so stay tuned........ and check out our Gender Reveal Party pics!
Gender Reveal Party side-note: we had a sonogram done a day before our Gender Reveal Party. the sonogram technician called our baker and told them Boy or Girl! then the baker made the (gorgeous polka dot) cake that was either blue or pink inside!!! once we cut into the cake (with our friends & family surrounding us) we then found out, IT'S A GIRL!!!
... and this little mama-to-be got a tab bit emotional.
what i'm wearing: ( printed pants- H&M, printed top- H&M, two statement necklaces- JCREW, heels- JOIE )
hey guys! so yesterday i was on a LA News station KTLA 5!
i was there to talk about the concept Cost-Per-Wear... which basically means how much value you can get out of one piece (like a great handbag or a piece of clothing). incase you'd like to try and figure out the Cost-Per-Wear of an item you'd like to buy (to make sure it's really "worth it") then follow this little formula:original price ÷ the estimated times you plan on wearing that piece = CPW!
it was such a fun experience at KTLA,
i hope you watch and take a little something away!
hello my consistent readers, supportive blog followers, and cyber friends!
i have to start with an apology for falling off the face of the earth, for the past couple of weeks. i have had some exciting and super time-consuming things take place over the past month! all good things, but i've just been a busy busy girl!
one big piece of news is..........
i am opening my very own ONLINE STORE called wool + rose on September 1st!!!
this is super exciting new venture for me and turns out is a lot of work... but really fun work. i will be selling the following categories: home, jewelry, accessories, and baby! (i hope you all are as excited as i am!) i will keep you all posted with my progress and will remind you of the launch date once it gets a bit closer.
enough about me... how is your summer???
it's been a kinda cloudy-overcast summer here in LA. we're still waiting for summer to arrive!
these colorful geometric photographs are taken by the photographer Michael Wolf. i've seen these images around the web and every time i see the tight but almost whimsical city living spaces... it makes me feel a bit cramped. i do however love all the colors + lights! i enjoy photography that makes you feel something. anything, really! i think an artist that can bring an emotion to the surface... is doing a pretty good job.
what do you think when you see these images??
i for one... feel very thankful for my backyard full of grass, flowers, and a vegetable garden.
happy friday internet! i hope you all had a fantastic week and have some even more fantastic plans for the weekend! and if not... there is something to be said for those weekends where you have absolutely zero plans. our plans are to lounge around our house, watch a couple of movies, and work on the garden. sounds like perfection to me! here are a few links to distract you from working on a Friday afternoon...............................
30 signs you are or are almost 30 years old. so funny & true!
one: a summer bouquet from Trader Joes & short vase from West Elm
happy monday! this 4th of July weekend was a full of food, friends, and one awesome photoshoot! from thursday to sunday we went to 3 BBQ's and hosted one at our house, went on at least one walk each day to our local coffee shop, and even had time to do a deep clean around the house (which always feels amazing once done). as for the photoshoot it was for Southbay Magazine and is my new & very own little column called "Street Style"! i'll make sure to post more about the column once it's published mid-August. how was your weekend???
if you're the bride-to-be, a guest to a wedding, at a summer picnic, or a chic spring-time party... would you dare to sport a Flower Crown??? in theory i would LOVE to say yes, of course i would! with out a doubt! no problemo! but i'm just not sure i could pull off the entire floral crown. like the whole shabang. do you feel the same way? maybe we should start with a half crown, a pretty cluster, or the braided version (like photo above). well, what about you??? are you jumping on the floral bandwagon?
