So long Summer…

September 2, 2019

A little red, white and blue never hurt anybody! When the infamous color trio makes its appearances at the beginning of summer, it’s all you see in stores, on your Instagram feed, and on your favorite style icons for two months. However, the palette’s ubiquitousness usually tapers out before the first of August to make room for more autumnal hues. So before I exchange my bright primary pops of color for burgundy, olive, and camel, I wanted to get one last “farewell” post in saluting summer’s most iconic color palette.

Dashing through the sand….

August 7, 2018

An ideal day, no? For many, vacation is the perfect excuse to lie back in pajamas and sip tea in front of HGTV. For me, it’s the ultimate opportunity to play dress up and snap a few photos.  Continue Reading
