Neon and Gold

Neon and Gold

 

Nothing is better in summer than neon, except maybe neon and gold. The pair is unexpected but refreshing. My first instinct would be to pair neon with subtle accents or even cool silver for the contrast, but something about neon and gold just works! I paired this gorgeous J. Crew dress here with fabulous gold leaf earrings and a chunky gold bangle, both from Burns Jewellers. The lucite clutch and nude heels are just the icing on the cake with this outfit. Will you pair neon and gold this summer?

Our Family/Living Room

May 20th, 2014

living room 3

I am kind of on a roll with this whole home tour thing! I captured our family/living room last week and wanted to share the pics with my lovely readers. It finally feels pretty “finished” and I say “finished” because I change my mind every two and a half seconds and switch things around.

We don’t have two living spaces like most modern homes, but our home was built in 1948 so it has the charm to make up for it! To me, leaving the room uncluttered was a must to accent the beautiful features like the built in bookcase and gorgeous bay windows. I love playing around with different accent pieces but for the most part, the decor continues to be simple and modern with a bit of rustic thrown in (as described here). I have to say, Gaston sure does make the room look good!

I will continue to show you more rooms, but we are starting our addition soon, so it may be a few months. Stay tuned! (You can shop some of the pieces from our room below!)

Entry Way

May 14th, 2014

entry way 4

The home tour continues! I wanted to feature our cute little entry way on the blog because I adore everything about it. I took my time styling it and making sure I loved each element, but it finally feels complete to me. The only addition I would consider would be a coat rack or umbrella holder, but that is still undecided. The sweet silhouettes were made on Etsy and are actual silhouettes of our fur baby, Gaston. My mom always had our silhouettes on the wall, so I was inspired to create a new take on the idea with puppy silhouettes. Plus, let’s be honest, they’re cuter than normal silhouettes anyways! I also chose one of our favorite wedding photos and some other cute objects to style the table.

Pop of Red

May 7th, 2014

This last Friday night, the hubby suggested going out for pizza and I was obviously excited to get out of my work-from-home pajamas and put on something pretty. I took a break from my usual boho-glam mood and went all out girly with a bit of a retro vibe. Sometimes after working from home and barely seeing anyone throughout the week, I need to get dolled up and wait for the hubby to hand out the compliments. On a side note, I seriously need to get out of the habit of switching from pj’s to workout clothes and back to pj’s, but it is so hard to be motivated to dress up just for myself! Any tips and suggestions on getting out of this habit are welcome!)

Back to the outfit at hand. This dress was sent to me by SAMMYdress and it is a basic that will remain in my closet for years. It can be dressed up girly with a pop of red like I did here, but I also imagine wearing it over my bikini, or with flash tats and some nude heels. The possibilities are just endless. The fit is loose enough to be comfy, but not look messy. I can’t wait to feature it again up on the blog!

SeaVees

May 6th, 2014

SeaVees1

When Online Shoes introduced me to the fabulous brand that is SeaVees, I was enamored. It is the perfect collection of beachy, West Coast-cool footwear that I want to be rocking all summer long. Each shoe is inspired by either an influential person or date in 1960s California history, which made the California girl in me love the brand even more. I was lucky enough to snag this Bayside Sandal to review and immediately knew it would go with so many different options in my closet. It is basic black with a neutral sole and heel, so it literally works with everything! The dress I chose is a favorite I bought in France a few years ago from Zadig & Voltaire. The easy, relaxed fit of the dress goes so nicely with the SeaVees. I can’t wait to pair them with cropped jeans, shorts and pretty much every skirt in my closet.
