It’s been yet another busy week around here, especially because we’re starting to brainstorm fall and holiday content. Yup, that stuff starts in August if you can believe it! There are also a few fun press links to share with you guys: HGTV named me one of their 10 Favorite Designers to Watch on Instagram Stories and Shutterfly was kind enough to include my old SF home office in their round up of 85 Inspiring Home Office Ideas. Both lists are pretty great and I’m really honored to be part of each, so be sure to check ’em out!
I hope you guys have a great weekend — here are a few finds that are inspiring me lately:
As I sit and write this post, it’s about 80 degrees and not even 8 am yet. Seattle, why you gotta be like that? And, while I know rainy days are coming, I can’t help myself… I’m too warm! I find myself wearing only breezy, lightweight layers and was completely stoked when I found First Rite… not just because the pieces are perfect for this time of year, but also because there’s a lovely little sale going on!
Truly one of my favorite sales of the year, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is upon us and you guys can get early access HERE! I always shop this huge store-wide sale and use it as an opportunity to stock up on all of my favorite items from jeans to dresses to shoes (oh, the shoes… so many great styles this year) to beauty. Here’s my exhaustive guide to the sale and all of the must-haves I’m eyeing:
With summer in full swing, I find myself reaching for one wardrobe staple again and again — cutoffs! There’s just nothing like a pair of comfy denim shorts for a casual vibe that beats the heat. As much as I like the distressed look, some of my cutoffs are getting a little too raggedy and need a makeover. So I’m revamping my old favorites and giving them new life with a boho-chic touch!
Let me start out by saying I love DIY’s (have you seen my personal blog, Material Delight?) — but one annoying thing about starting so many projects is the plethora of leftover materials. Ribbons… fabric cuttings… beads… It’s a lot to store! That’s why I’m always so excited when a new idea uses the same materials as a previous project.
A few weeks ago we made appliquéd ribbon statement sunhats and it was one of my favorite DIY posts yet! I had plenty of black trim left over, so we decided why not take the same idea of our looping cursive statement hats and apply it to my favorite denim jacket?
I am all for adding little things in my day to day life that make me smile — and the playful prints from Chipper Things do exactly that! What first began as the brainchild of illustrator, graphic designer, and author Becky Simpson, is now a collection of giftable goodies tattooed with art that celebrates the simple things in life through a cheerful lens.
When Joanna ordered the Should I Wash My Hair Today? print (pictured above) for her bathroom I started looking through the rest of her prints and fell in love with her zany sense of humor and flowing brushstrokes.

You guys, what better way to kick off the official start to summer with a HUGE sale?? Thankfully, lots of brands have some incredible Memorial Day deals going on… and I’ve rounded up my favorites to help you get your shop on. #treatyourself
