 A dangerous combination…me and a curling iron.  Not the best way to begin a day…burning three fingers and then literally falling over a tree stump that should not have been there and doing a nice number on my leg. Just a typical day for clumsy me!  I needed a fix so these colorful stripes provided some necessary cheer.  I found this shirt at Zara a few months ago and bought it in two colors because a) that’s what you do when you’re obsessed with stripes and b) find a good fit.  Rest assured the other color will be making an appearance soon!

Minted for West Elm

July 21, 2014

minted west elm1I’m not quite sure how I missed this partnership, but I’m thrilled to have just discovered it!  Minted, a marketplace for independent artists, teamed up with West Elm for a special ‘wall art challenge.’  Drawing from their design community, they chose 25 favorite prints from over 1,400 submissions to be sold at West Elm.  It’s so inspiring to see the unique work of independent artists and this collection speaks everything your gallery wall needs…cheerful, colorful prints that would flatter any space.  Maybe it’s because I live in a beachy city, but the surfer prints really appealed to me.  Shop the entire Minted for West Elm collection right here!
