summer lovin’

summer lovin'
I’m so, so happy it’s finally warming up in Texas, because that means summer is coming and I get to wear shorts! I’ve also been super into floppy hats as of lately, so I just had to throw one into this outfit. This is a great look for running around town or going shopping with friends.

trend alert: tiny necklaces

Minuscule, dainty charms have been all the rage lately, as they should be; they go with everything, and add a bit of style to even the dullest outfits. It’s a nice break from statement necklaces (which I love as well), because smaller necklaces are easier on the neck (ha!) and you don’t have to worry about taking them off. For example, I have a little necklace that I wear all the time: a tiny little 24kt gold lion pendant that my great grandmother gave me since we’re both Leos. I’ve put together a collection of little necklaces that I hope will appeal to every taste. Let me know if I missed anything!

interior design: plants

Having something living in your house is great. Hopefully you do, since you live there (get it since you’re alive? ha.). But honestly, having a plant in your house/room/studio/whatever is great. It brings in a kind of freshness that isn’t achievable through any other method, and it’s really easy to keep a plant alive if you pick the right one. Here are some tips on how to keep house plants/succulents alive, how to choose resilient ones, and how to make them look perfect.

best of: floppy hats

Spring is almost here (FINALLY), and to me, this signifies the beginning of a season in which it is okay to wear floppy hats. I love floppy hats for two reasons: they protect my ridiculously fair skin, and I get to look like a diva while staying in the shade. With floppy hats, you can’t lose. Here are my favorites.

interior design: light fixtures

Hey guys! Today I’m going to share some of my favorite lighting fixtures with you, because I love, love, love light. My dream home is white and gold with lots of plants, but above all, I want there to be light. Tons and tons of light streaming in through all the windows and warm light radiating from whatever ceiling fixture I decide to hang (currently, I’m liking a row of simple gold-dipped lightbulbs). Because of this, looking for lighting really interests me, and I’ve decided to share my top picks as of right now for bringing light to any room.
