Anna here from In Honor of Design, excited to be taking over for Jacquelyn today! Since I’m kind of jealous she’s on her way to the sandy side of Mexico, I thought I would dive into some daydreaming. Here are a few travel and wear pairings that resemble each other! Any places you are dreaming of traveling to?? I’ve added that Hotel Hafa Suyalita on my bucket lust JUST to set sights on that adorable heart path!

The countdown is on until our big family trip to Mexico and I couldn’t be more thrilled! On the agenda for the week: the beach, the beach, and maybe the beach? As far as my travel essentials go, I’m planning on wielding a small selection of easy breezy basics that can take me from the ocean to dinner in a snap. A handful of maxi dresses, a dainty necklace, some comfy harem pants, the cutest bikini in all the land and I am good to go!

If you haven’t figured it out by now, pink is kind of my love language. I’m not talking baby-girl pink here, I’m referring to the sophisticated version you’d find gracing the pages of This is Glamorous and Bijou and Boheme. Shades of coral and blush; petal pink and the like. You know, the grown up kind! And in light of this pink-infused holiday, I’ve rounded up a few of my very favourite items – if for no other reason than it’s a serious dose of pretty. Happy, happy Valentine’s day my dears!
Flats: Tieks | Pants: J Crew | Lipstick: Tom Ford | Heels: Shop Bop | Lace Top: She Inside | Boots: Shop Bop | Blazer: She Inside | Wrapping paper: Waiting on Martha | Basket: Far and Wide Collective | Earrings: Far and Wide Collective | Napkins: Far and Wide Collective | Bathing suit: Anthropologie | Pillow: Anthropologie | Lingerie: Anthropologie | Pink Salt: Weddbook | Hand Lotion: Williams Sonoma

After Christmas, a trip to South Africa, and two family weddings on the horizon, I’ve been forced to put myself on a spending hiatus in order to replenish my poor, sad little wallet. And though on an average day I’m not a huge shopper (I prefer the experience route over the material thing*), ever since making this decision, I find myself inadvertently perusing all. of. the. sites. All. of. the. time. I swear, my subconscious is such a brat sometimes. So instead of splurging on a handful of really lovely wintery-white pieces, I thought I’d share my findings and oogle from afar instead!
*Unless we’re talking about interior design. All bets go out the window when my home plays a factor.
Scarf: Nordstrom | Bangles: Moda Operandi | Watch: Kate Spade | Striped Tee: The Outnet | Sweater: Farfetch | Wool Jacket: Mango | Wool Hat: Barney’s | Purse: Neiman Marcus | Nail Polish: Essie | Socks: Barney’s | Earrings: Net-a-Porter | Ring: Steven Alan | Wrap Bracelet: Alexander McQueen

Hello! Kelly of Fabulous K here. I’m thrilled to be guest blogging for Jacquelyn while she’s away on her South African adventure. Today I want to share one of my favorite color crush combos: blush + gold. I went through a phase where I was kind of over shades of pink, but am now back on the bandwagon thanks to the pretty blush hue that’s popping up everywhere. I especially love it paired with glittery, metallic golds – it’s modern and girly without being too over the top. Are you a fan of this perfect pairing? Which item is your favorite?

For the first time in my entire life, I’m having difficulty coming around to the idea of fall. Normally I’m all about the crisp, cozy season, I’d even go so far as to say that it’s my favourite of them all. But this year? Those nostalgic feelings that typically surround the next few months seem to have gone missing. I thought that maybe if I compiled a round up of fall-like essentials it’d improve my excitement level. And though I’m not quite ready to say goodbye to my sundresses, I have to admit that it helped (a little). Apparently cozy throws, soft blush capes and stacks of books will do that to a girl.

Alright you guys. It’s been well documented around here in the past that fashion is not exactly my forte. I will never be the one to set trends or be the first to pick out the latest and greatest. That being said, there’s no denying that I adore a great top and a beautiful bag like the rest of em’. And now that we’re into the thick of summer, I thought it’d be fun to round-up a few of my summer must-haves. For me? It’s all about comfort. Pieces that you can throw on in a pinch, will keep you cool under the hot sun, and make you feel instantly chic with little to no effort at all.
1. Turkish Towel from Casa | 2. Bikini from J. Crew (on sale!) | 3. Fold up Flats from Tieks (so comfy) | 4. Sandal from Zappos | 5. Chevron Dress from Mod Cloth | 6. Sunglasses from Asos | 7. Beachy Hair Spray from Walgreens | 8. Marc Jacobs Purse from Shopbop | 9. Water Bottle from BKR | 10. Tank from Asos | 11. Heel from Shopbop | 12. Shorts from The Gap | 13. Skirt from Old Navy

Hey guys! Molly & Sally here from A Piece of Toast. We are SO excited for that Jacquelyn (and a little jealous) that she and her love get to travel to romanic Amafli, Italy. Based on her post last week it sounds like their trip is a bit of an open book right now… So we thought we’d help her pack! Must haves for any trip abroad during the summer season: outfits for day trips exploring, a swim suit and cover up for time on the coastal beach, and breezy attire for evenings out. With out realizing it, the items we collected all had a very pretty and sweet vibe – just like Jacquelyn! Enjoy your time on the coast, J + J – we can’t wait to see your photos when you return and we hope we made packing a bit easier (:
Yep, Molly & Sally definitely hit the nail right on the head with this one. My shopping list has just grown exponentially! Thanks again ladies <3

Just a few things I wish would magically find their way into my closet this season.
September 6, 2011
Today is my first day at my brand new job! I’m not sure if it’s the fact that it coincides with the first day of school, but I’m feeling like a child all over again. I’ve had my outfit chosen for a week now, I’ve brainstormed hairdo’s and the nerves and butterflies are in full force. I find myself hoping that my new desk is in the perfect location and that I sit next to someone cool (although, designers are cool, right? I think I’ll be okay here). I was too nervous/distracted to put together a post this morning, so please accept my apologies and know that my scenes from my weekend will be up tomorrow.
In the meantime, head over to the lovely Sofia’s Journal where I’m holding down the fort while she’s off on a much deserved vacation. Over there you can checkout a few of my very favourite beauty products.
And if you have a few good luck vibes to spare, feel free to send em’ my way. Much appreciated!

I don’t know about you, but I find that my hair tends to freak out a little bit in the summer. It gets frizzy, it gets sun bleached and it just doesn’t know what to do with itself. I’m always looking for ways to tame my tresses (apart from my go-to loose waves when I just know the humidity will attack any attempt at straight hair) and this one will definitely be a top contender come the warmer months.
