SUMMER WISHLIST

summer wishlist June is one of my very favorite months. Everything smells amazing. (I mean, lilacs and russian olive trees?? Ooh, I say.) The skies are extra dreamy. And almost every activity takes place outside. Preferably with cold beverages...

Here are just a few things from my summertime wishlist. Cuz what better way to celebrate warmer temps than with a watermelon tank, Warby aviators, and a too cold to hold ban.do drink sleeve?? Plus an absolutely gorgeous photo by Max Wanger that I'm hoping will help me hang onto this summer feeling all year round...

THE CAT'S PAJAMAS (OR CAT PAJAMAS)

cats-pajamas Hey there, friends! Phew. These last few weeks have been busy, but oh-so-awesome busy. There's something about springtime... it gives everything an extra nudge of excitement and momentum, don't you think?

Anyhoo, time to get serious and talk about how awesome those pajamas are... In fact, all of these items are callin' my name!! I mean, who could say no to cat jams, heart-shaped sunnies, the perfect basic flat, and a gold dipped clutch?

Nobody.

IN LOVE: SPRING FORWARD

spring-forward-wishlist The weather has been gorgeous lately. It has me dreaming of warmer temps! While we surely have a few more snow storms in our future, it's never too early to start putting together a warm weather wishlist...

How cute are those citrus flats! Pair them with a neon scalloped skirt (for maximum cuteness) and a matte black ban.do heart (for a little edge) and I'd say you're ready for spring, homegirl.

IN LOVE: VALENTINE'S DAY

valentine's wishlist I luuurve this print Sweethearts by Jonathan Lewis. It's from Jonathan's series See Candy, where he takes inspiration from the colors and tones of the candy section of the supermarket. I never realized just how many colors can appear on candy packaging! Kind of amazing, right?

Wouldn't those colors make the cutest Valentine's Day outfit?? My research points to YES.

IN LOVE: AUTUMN DAYS

autumn days Guys. I'm wearing a sweater right now. It's cold(er), it's cloudy, leaves are starting to turn, Kevin's watching football. Fall is here.

I'm really loving Madewell's "wildly simple" aesthetic this fall. You just can't go wrong with basics like black skinnies and a good button-up. Add some accessories? Ohmygah cute.

I've gotta throw in some artwork with my outfit inspiration, right? I know you've heard of Angela Kohler. Her photos are ridiculously amazing... I'm endlessly inspired by her work. Good stuff here.

Happy fall and happy Monday, friends!

IN LOVE: ANTHRO

anthro-wishlist Anthropologie, you're killin' me with your cuteness. I recently fell down the rabbit hole that is Anthro's House & Home section. It's dangerous.

Since we moved, I'm in full updating/decorating mode. We have all the main furniture covered already, but I'd love to add a few new decorative items here and there to make everything feel fresh and new again... that's what moving is about, right? A fresh start?

P.S. how cool would it be to wake up with a real alarm clock?! I'd almost be excited to wake up early just so I could use it... almost.

Which item is your favorite?

BUY WHAT YOU LOVE

house-&-home A friend of mine told me that when it comes to decorating, simply buy what you love. Everything will find a way of fitting together because it's your aesthetic...

I'm not sure what HGTV would say about this approach, but I'm willing to give it a try. Because a) it requires absolutely no planning - decorating can be so overwhelming! - and b) all I have to do is find items I absolutely lurrve. That sounds like fun.

With this decorating method of madness in mind, I pulled the last few pins from my House & Home board to see if they went together.

Okay, okay. I can see how this might work. There are definitely some common threads: pinks + corals, turquoise, silver-y neutrals...

Do you have a home decor pinterest board? Do the items surprisingly fit together??

IN LOVE: NEW HOME WISH LIST

moving wishlist As we continue house hunting, I'm starting to get more and more excited about decorating a new place. Moving is always a good opportunity to get rid of the old and make room for the new. For instance, the standing lamp and set of dishes I got in college. Nothing wrong with hand-me-down fruit patterned dinnerware... but it might be time for an upgrade, yes?

I've been gathering inspiration for our new place like cray over on pinterest. How rad is that key tag?? Hey, anything that makes me excited to move is a good thing...

Happy Monday, everyone!

IN LOVE: TAKE IT EASY

summertime The past few weeks have been SO busy. Sometimes amazing / good busy, like with Eat Drink Create... and sometimes hectic / stressful busy, like when our landlord told us they're selling our place so we have to move by August 31st. Sighhh.

BUT in between the busy, summer sneaks in. You know. Those incredible moments of peace and happiness that only come around this time of year. Sitting outside for brunch, relaxing on the front steps with lemonade, getting free soft serve ice cream just cuz! Okay, it was complimentary with our purchase, but still! No one gives out free ice cream during any other season.

Lately, my wardrobe definitely reflects these laid-back summer moments... flowy skirts, loose tops, gladiator sandals (my FAVE). Ahh yeeah. Maybe some of this laidback-ness will spill over into my house hunting? You never know...

relax

IN LOVE: FEELIN' LIKE GOLD

golden It's hot. Like real hot. Summer is in full swing here in Denver... but don't get me wrong, I love all this warmth + sunshine. In fact, I'd love to surround myself with even more sunshine-y golden hues. Enter: this moodboard.

I'd totally be feeling like gold rocking those shoes. Wouldn't you?? If you happen to find yourself with those gems in size 5.5, my birthday is in February... just sayin'.
