Any interior designer will tell you that to add interest and depth to a room, you must add textures and layers. This most often comes in the forms of fabrics - a chunky knit throw or pillow, a rich leather ottoman, a soft area rug underfoot, or seagrass woven baskets. But an element that shouldn't be overlooked is glass, most notably clear, seaglass inspired pieces that either have an un-smooth surface, slight bluish tint, or even both if you're feeling crazy.Read More
It's that time, my broads. You know it well. When you realize you need to start figuring out holiday cards and the photos you'll share with your nearest and dearest (and even some people you've not communicated with since last year when you sent a card). Let's be real. These are pretty silly. It's tough to get a good shot of everyone even when squirmy children are not involved, and they're about as far away from "natural" as anything could be despite the fact that most are captured in the outdoors, with great lighting and natural colors.Read More

First things first. I will admit that I am a hockey fan so laced up shirts are somewhat calling my name for that reason. Rest assured, this is a trend that is neither too hockey sweater nor pirate-y and instead is so right. This style offers so much versatility.
What are you looking for? Sporty? Maybe flirty? Or preppy with a dash of nautical? This shirt can achieve all of those goals and more. It's a top that seems to be popping up everywhere as of late, which means the world is your oyster when it comes to price point. I've corralled some options below. My personal fave being the Sezane Gigi Blouse. If you've not yet perused this french apparel site, I apologize to your bank account now.
Still needs some convincing? This little power player will serve as your shirt and your accessory. No need for a necklace. See... I've already justified your next purchase for you, my broads.
And remember, Laces Out!
Swift decision making is not one of my virtues. Decision making about larger purchases for items that are meant to last a while are even more paralyzing for me. And with summer in full swing, I was faced with the need for some new fun sunglasses (or as I like to call them "Funglasses") and thus, deciding which pair I should purchase.
Care to see them in action? I thought you'd never ask!
