We are headed to Cabo this weekend to meet up with some of my best friends. I’m so excited. After the crazy hours at work for the past month, it’s much needed for both of us! In the mean time, I’m going to enjoy some beach time, lounging in the sun, and shopping so I’ll be back posting on Wednesday. I’m in total resort mode thus the banana leaves! I’m loving their bold pattern flair!

{Lust List} Put A Bird On It


Flying Swan Lampshade ($88) | Pink Spinel Claw Stud Earrings ($118) | Embroidered Bird Clutch ($128) | Songbird Coasters ($11/25)

I’ve finally stopped being so obsessed with gardening lately and it’s not because I’m no longer interested. Crows and squirrels have been digging up everything I’ve been planting lately and not even to eat them. Just to sabotage! I caught a squirrel lifting up a plant I just put into the ground and rolling around in the loose dirt and then I saw crows nipping the tips of my lilies and roses and gourds that were just about to bloom and throwing them aside. But at times like these, I need to remind myself that they’re just wild animals and look at pretty pictures of them before I have dreams of buying a BB gun.

Are you a bird fan? Have you caught them digging up your garden?

Daydream In The Tropics


Tropical Bikini Top ($19) | Tropical Bikini Bottom ($16) | Urban Outfitter Sunglasses ($10) | Opening Ceremony Tropical Intarsia Sweater ($173) | Tropical Scarf ($30) | Tropical Maxi Dress ($70) | Click and Grow Starter Kit ($80) | Tangelo Tropical Clutch ($45)

It’s supposed to finally be heating up here in the Pacific NW and I can’t wait! We’ve been going between sunshine and sprinkles for a few weeks now (I guess because we got let off easy rainwise this spring). My mom is visiting from California first the first time since I bought the house, so it’ll be giggles and sightseeing this weekend. In the mean time, I hope ya’ll are enjoying the weather and if not, maybe indulge in some retail therapy with these items that remind me of hot tropical places.

How are you embracing tropical print?

Daydream In Hot Pink


Neon Leather Journal ($14) | Tropic Nights Chandelier Earrings ($28) | Cateye Reading Glasses ($38) | Budding Neon Necklace ($58) | Lace & Chiffon Dress ($128) | Diane von Furstenberg Lips Wristlet ($95) | Donald J Pliner Molly Pump ($228)

Although I don’t claim pink as my favorite color, I can’t resist its girly charm. Hot pink has my heart lately (neon pink and blush still has a piece of it too). As we’re trying to figure out color palettes for the house, pops of pink are never far from my mind (much to the chagrin of A).

What shade of pink is catching your eye lately?

Daydream In Lucite


CC Skye Lucite Clutch ($275) | Louis Ghost Chair ($410) | Lanvin Lucite Wedge Sandal ($1590) | Alexis Bittar ($275) | Lucite Trunk | Jonathon Adler Lucite Lamp ($487) | Natasha Couture Bead & Chain Necklace ($24) | Nesting Tables ($130)

With Spring around the corner, lucite is bound to be another fun trend. Since getting the nesting tables above, I can’t seem to stop looking at any piece of furniture that features lucite. It not only helps make a space look bigger, it’s fun when they’re injected with a hint of color. That clutch and those wedges (a pretty splurge!) would definitely go with everything.

Are you a fan of lucite?

Daydream In Midnight

Ever since the Orla Kiely Lust List post, I can’t get this beautiful and mysterious color out of my head. It’s deep rich tone that pairs so perfectly with sparkles is ideal for holiday parties and everyday wear alike. I love the moodiness it can give off in furniture like that cabinet and chair as well as its ability to be matched with rose gold in an unexpected watch. So versatile and wonderful for the season.

{Lust List} Pardon My French!

Garance Dore Studio Pull Over ($128) | Petit Amour Necklace (£5) | Worth Street Croissant Bag ($98)

France has been on my to visit list for as long as I can remember. I even had a phase (that may or may not be over) when I collected little French inspired soveniours and vintage things. Let’s just say I’m thinking about having the guest room be Parisian because of all these little things I’ve gathered. I love these cute little French inspired things that I can now incorporate into my closet as well!

Have you been to France?
