FASHION CAMOUFLAGE

This pic of my bf Lindsay blending in at her grandma's house made me laugh out loud...

KOALAS



Hope to post more on my trip to Australia soon, but in the meantime couldn't resist sharing this video of some very active little koalas...

AUSTRALIAN DREAMING

David has been drawn down to Australia for work a few times recently and I'm super excited to finally be joining him! We'll be in Sydney and then up to Queensland and the Great Barrier Reef. If you have any Australian recommendations, let me know! Can't wait for both. Here are a few things that have been on my mind... {citizens of humanity floral thompson jeans / Apolis for Incu Australia market tote / klorane dry shampoo for the long haul flight / anthropologie pleated optic dress / lemlem scarf / photo of the whitsundays from the air by the cherry blossom girl / bondi baths print by carlo van de roer / mint polish from face stockholm / jcrew straw chambray hat / dinosaur designs australia bangles / sydney design guide}

SOMEBODY LEFT THE GATE OPEN...


I'm curious how it's possible that it took this commercial for me to learn about singer (and acclaimed song writer) L.P. and this gorgeous song, Into the Wild... That voice, that hair... instant fan over here.

BAN.DO

I have enjoyed watching the creative girls behind ban.do expand their punchy accessories line and especially love their new ban.do signature scarf... I could picture it becoming a staple.

BLONDE & BRAIDED

Loving this braid and perfect color blonde... {via meggy}

DIOR CREME DE ROSE

I have a bit of a thing for rose flavored lip balms (my favorite is vaseline rosy lips balm I pick up at Boots each time I'm in England) and I'm dying to try Dior's Creme de Rose, which two of my favorite French bloggers seem to be hooked on... {images by Garance Doré and the cherry blossom girl}

THE BRICK HOUSE

I just came across The Brick House (don't know what took me so long!), a blog by Morgan Satterfield about "renovating a mid century cement brick house"... and I have to say that I love their aesthetic and diy capabilities. I am also seriously impressed by their eye for thrifting, an area where I myself have no skills.

ROYALLY WED

Did everyone enjoy watching the royal wedding as much as I did? I was surprised by how captivating the whole affair was, even on a west coast delay. A few things I loved the most were the trees brought in to decorate the abbey, Pippa's stunning maid of honor dress, this grumpy flower girl, and the fact that (finally) we have some happy news in the news. {I also loved this wedding route map by the house that lars built, via this is glamorous.}{top photo by Oli Scarff / Getty Images}

KENTON SORENSON

Loving these incredibly simple hand-crafted leather iPad portfolios by Kenton Sorenson. Nothing ages quite like a beautiful leather... I imagine it would become even more beautiful over time. {available from Need Supply}

CHEVRON

HARPER'S BAZAAR

I have a bit of a thing for panda bears and loved seeing this spring fashion editorial with an asian twist from the March issue of Harper's Bazaar... how can the panda costumes not make you smile? View the rest of the shoot here. {photographs by Terry Richardson for Harper's Bazaar}

Hope you all have a wonderful Valentine's Day... thought I'd wish you a sweet one with this floral heart print by one of my favorites, Rifle Paper Co. xo.

TOTOKAELO + MOCIUN

Totokaelo is one of the most well-selected online boutiques out there and I tend to love pretty much everything on their site... especially the jewelry, and especially this beautifully simple double triangle ring by Mociun...


Also, how crazy is Mociun's topography necklace?!

BEAUTY

Lately I have been inspired by the photography of many of my favorite bloggers. I could look through their photos for hours... good thing there is an infinite amount of beauty out there. {Images by two of my favorites: Swedish blogger hilda grahnat in Japan (top) and Parisian blogger the cherry blossom girl in New York (bottom)}

A TREE GROWS IN THE HALLWAY

I am crazy about this beautiful hallway and love the idea of growing indoor citrus trees. Seems like quite a feat to keep them alive, but a girl can dream! {via wit + delight's pinterest}

WINTER WARMTH

The past few days have been a balmy 80° here in Santa Barbara and while it's a bit of a tease since summer's so far away, we couldn't help but make the most of it with lots of time on the beach. These pictures are from an early morning walk along the beach near my house... we fell in love with this perfectly tangly piece of driftwood and I was super tempted to drag it all the way home.
