show me your stripes

Hello lovers! im finally back after a much needed vacation and now I have some time to scour the internets looking for cool things once again. today's theme is stripes. once an enemy of mine, stripes have come back into trend for summer in styles that are totally cute and totally wearable. Often looking nautical, stripes are quintessential summer-except instead of the standby navy blue we can see them in neutral tones that still evoke that light and freshness we can't get enough of in the summer months. shoes, keds

Hawaiian Dreams....

I can't believe theres only two more days until me, my sister and my friends are taking a trip to Hawaii!! This is the first time I get to show people around the islands, so I'm hoping there are places I can discover also. Summer in Portland has so far been disappointing with cold, gloomy days and sudden downpours and lightning. The forecast for Hawaii? 85 and Sunny. EVERY. DAY. Itll be hot, but that can easily be fixed with a jump into the crystal clear waters of Lanikai Beach and later a cool shave ice...oh I can see it all now. Expect lots of pictures when I get back! Have a fabulous two weeks everyone!

hot hawaiian nights

I can't wait for my trip back to Hawaii! Im taking along two great friends who have never been to the islands-its going to be a blast! I can see beaches, hot sunny days and eating fresh fruit all week long....here are some looks for day and night perfect for hawaii weather

A sleek maxi dress is casual enough for the beach,
yet paired with simple jeweled sandals and a show-off bracelet make it a sultry night outfit

this flirty printed dress is fun to walk around the island with bright yellow sandals

oh sweet stationery

I simply adore the stationery and other paper goods from Rifle Paper Co. So sweet and child-like, they remind me of illustrations of Madeleine and other storybooks. Maybe I'll buy a box and frame them? Instant art!
