One of the reasons I’ve been MIA is because I’ve started a new job, which has been keeping me pretty busy. But no complaints here, feeling very fortunate and blessed to have a place to go to everyday. Anyway, working in an office means no more casual mondays for me, but perhaps casual friday?? I remember a year ago I talked about needing to add more black pieces to my wardrobe, and finally it’s starting to trickle in. With this new job, I’ve been looking for pieces that can be dressed up or down – something I can wear to the office as well as out on the weekends, and black is just so classic, versatile and perfect.
A couple weeks ago we decided to take a spontaneous trip out to Marfa, Tx – I mean, if not now, when?? We packed our bags, hit the road, and drove hundreds and hundreds of miles out to west Texas.
When trying to decide where to stay, we were initially between El Cosmico and Thunderbird, but since it was so last minute, El Cosmico was all booked, Thunderbird had a room or two left, so we thought okay Thunderbird it is. BUT THEN, I came across Corte Del Norte and oh my goodness, I immediately fell in love! They have two houses – Rock City House and The Love House. We decided on Rock City House because it was just the two of us, and we wanted something smaller. Wow, what a beautiful space. These photos really don’t do it justice. It’s simple, stylish, and filled with Marfa culture. Really, I could’ve stayed in the whole trip and be perfectly fine.
Our first stop was Prada Marfa of course. I couldn’t contain my excitement, I’ve been wanting to see this art instillation in person for the longest time! Getting a photo of this was worth the entire trip. When we finally got to Marfa, we hit up Food Shark and tried the Marfalafel and a chicken wrap – delish! After walking and exploring, we had dinner at Cochineal – the food, vibe, and people were all amazing! It’s a little pricey, but totally worth it! For breakfast, we started the day with Squeeze Marfa – coffee and chocolate croissants for me! Cast + Crew was right next door to our house, so of course we stopped by once or twice to admire vintage items, neon, and the most beautiful and unique Eames and Bertoia chairs.
Marfa is such a beautiful, unique small town tucked away in West Texas. If you ever have the opportunity to go, I highly recommend it!
Oh hi! Remember me? It’s been crazy busy over here, but I won’t get into it right now. Even though I haven’t been on here, I have been sharing some snaps on instagram. Parc Boutique opened store #2 in Edina, and I could not be more happy and excited for their expansion and success. Since I couldn’t be there for the opening, I sent over these beautiful blooms arranged by my sweet friend Jackie of munster rose – isn’t it beautiful?? We also made a trip out to Marfa, TX, which I will share some photos soon!
I’m hoping for things to calm down a bit soon, but in the meantime, update me on what’s going on with you!
Elizabeth Suzann just released her new FW2014 collection and oh my goodness, I have no words. Influenced by her favorite iconic shapes of the past decades, this collection is filled with high rise cigarette pants, full skirts, cropped turtlenecks, and classic trousers. She had an open house this past weekend and as much as I wanted to fly out to Nashville to try on every single piece in person, all I could do was admire, love and support from out here. I got the Billie Sweater Dress, but believe me when I say I wanted it all!!! Check out the full collection here – you will not be disappointed.
Once again I’ve teamed with with Ashley of Sugar & Cloth and designed some prints for these DIY lunch bags. How cute are they?? And you really could use them for anything – favors, treats, flowers, anything. Tutorial and free download can be found on Julep.
Here we are in September, and I have no idea where the summer months went. I remember the winter days were icy, freezing and treacherous, Spring brought blooming peonies… and now it’s Fall?! What?? Crazy. But I’m not complaining – new seasons bring new changes, and we’re ready for a change.
Also, can I just say something about this Oak + Fort kimono – it is the perfect summer to fall transition piece – its lightweight material and relaxed fit can be paired with any simple dress during the warmer days and then layered with sweaters and leggings when temps start dropping. Love it.

I had so much fun designing these cute prints for Ashley’s surprise lunch notecards. Succulents have been my inspiration this summer (who am I kidding, I love succulents anytime of the year) But anyway, as everyone’s heading back to school, I love the idea of sneaking in sweet little notes into lunch bags, backpacks, whatever it may be. Head over to sugar & cloth to download the printables – as well as check out Ashley’s awesome photo styling ;)
