i LOVE a good home tour & this LA space is swoon worthy. when i saw this home on mydomaine, i knew i wanted to share it right away. i love the fresh, open space throughout and the different use of textures. my favorite part would have to be the little eating nook in the kitchen.
other things to note –
– the front door
– pattern mixing
– wall paper
– pink chaise lounge

august is around the corner and i’m not sure what to make of that. summer is almost over and it feels like it just began. anyways, this week i’m sharing an OUTFIT post! it’s been a while since i’ve shared any outfits on here – it’s been a crazy month but i’m excited to get them going again.
this chambray striped dress paired with a Rooey clutch creates the perfect day to night look. this dress is also a RK design that we had made for feedback purposes so … we’re all ears! aside from our accessories made from neckties, we sell a line of black and white linen shirts and dresses on martha’s vineyard. when we were in china this year, we decided to get a few extra pieces made in a striped chambray to see what our customers thought. so far, everyone LOVES them and we already have a few custom orders in the works. if you like what you see, email us!
happy hump day!
happy friday! i’ve settled down in MV for a little while now so it’s nice to get back on here. martha’s vineyard is just as beautiful as i remember it and i feel so fortunate to be here. i never thought i would spend a few summers living and working towards a dream on this amazing island. i’ve been taking many photo’s to share on here so stay tuned for those!
late night internet browsing is always fun. i want everything in the random assortment above. there is just something so crisp, clean and minimal about these pieces. i just want them all. what i want most and what i’ll start saving for are those suede lace up heels.

it’s the middle of the week & i still feel like there aren’t enough days in the week. i took a break from blogging last week (haven’t done a full week in a long time) and i feel inspired and refreshed! i needed a little time away, especially because i’ve been so busy lately and knew i wasn’t going to give this space the time it deserved. i would rather produce really good content that i’m proud of publishing, rather then rushed, mediocre stuff that i’m not 100% about.
i leave for newport, rhode island on friday for the 4th and then head to martha’s vineyard for the rest of the summer. i’m looking forward to this change of scenery and can’t wait to share more on that in the coming weeks! this outfit has me thinking of nights on the vineyard that are a little too chilly for shorts but perfect for cropped pants. i can’t wait for casual outings, wearing something similar to what’s pictured above.

a couple months back i participated in the b bar’s ‘monthly link-up’ series, where i talked about my three favorite instagram feeds. i loved participating in this series & because of it was able to add more blogs to my daily reading list & even formed a few virtual friendships – maybe one day we’ll all meet in person!
this month’s word of the month is ‘essential,’ so the june link-up post question asks, what are your summer essentials? i’ve rounded up my favorite summer pieces below. many of my picks happen to center around the beach but isn’t that what summer’s all about? enjoy!
no. 1 bathing suit (s) : get two nice bathing suits & make sure you can mix and match. now you have 4. product links: white top & bottom polka dot top & bottom.
no. 2 beach tote : it’s always smart to have a beach tote on hand but even smarter when it’s a good size (not too small & not too big). it should also be a neutral color. one of the worst feelings is when your bag doesn’t match your outfit.
no. 3 cover-up : one thing i always used to forget about was a cover up for the beach / pool. wearing shorts and a tee just isn’t going to cut it anymore. plus, cover-ups are hassle free – easy on, easy off.
no. 4 travel perfume : smelling good all the time is key. on hot sticky days in the summer when you’re sweating more then ever, it’s always a good idea to have perfume. i recommend bobbi brown’s ‘beach’.
no. 5 reading : if you’re like me, you get easily bored at the beach. laying in the sun for hours on end, doing absolutely nothing, isn’t very appealing to me. having a good beach read on hand is key. plus, when you’re not on vacation you get stuck in daily routines that getting through a whole book is often challenging. the coincidence of coconut cake was listed on huffington post’s fictional summer reading list this year.
