hi again! lately i feel like i’m starting all of my posts this way, but here goes again — it’s been a minute...or a few months.

that’s life right? everything has been really busy, and time never slows down. i spend a lot of time working on my computer and really need a break from screen-time; turning on my computer at home always feels exhausting. but i really miss blogging! and want to commit more time to getting inspired again in this space. so why not start with a post about slides — my summer shoe obsession of 2019. i’m sharing 10 cute options from around the internet, buuut if i had to choose my favorite, it would be the tkees gemma sandals (i own 2 colors, and am plotting buying a third). they are truly perfection.



  1. clear straps — brittany slide / diane von furstenberg

  2. oversized buckle — cult gaia

  3. the perfect flip flop — gemma slide / tkees

  4. leopard espadrilles — loeffler randall

  5. gingham slides — loeffler randall

  6. rope slides — zimmerman

  7. snakeskin slides — mango

  8. red Birkenstocks — valentino x birkenstocks

  9. bight orange slides — kate spade

  10. ric rac sandals — see by chloe


hello hello! it's been a minute since i last posted on here! i must confess that lately i've been hanging out offline soaking up the sun and getting some house projects accomplished. but the times i have been on my laptop, i've been spending my time on tumblr. tumblr is hands down an escape from traditional social media, for me at least -- there's way less pressure to post the perfect photo (not to mention the stress that hashtags cause). i also love that there are no ads...for now. it's one of my favorite online sources for sparking inspiration when i'm feeling blah. so, after realizing i haven't posted something new here all month (oops!). I felt the urge to create a visual collection of my latest finds: Lots of good imagery like patterned pants, luxe fabrics, gingham, and cotton candy textures. even sparkly hair!


FRUIT, AND houndstooth

ok, so gingham -- aka spring's favorite print -- may not have actually gone anywhere. it's a true classic pattern, akin to stripes and florals. and like spring florals, it makes it's return each year. which means you probably already own a gingham item or two hidden in your closet.

pull those pieces out front and center because: this season is gingham's time to shine!

forget gingham picnic blankets, and sugary sweet Easter dresses. right now, gingham is cool, fresh and sophisticated. i especially love it because brands and fashionistas alike are fearless when it comes to piling on the prints: that means gingham with gingham and more gingham for this print-happy girl.

read on for a mishmash of gingham-patterned inspiration that i've been really loving as of late, from vintage finds, to right-now styles. but, you won't see the typical spring pastel pallet here -- i've been drawn to bright blues, oranges and deep grays instead.

this looks like one piece, doesn't it?!  the simple styling -- classic black loafers, messy hair, delicate gold jewelry -- and easy silhouette makes this look covetable.

try playing with scale when mixing gingham with gingham. or buy a piece that already comes pre-mixed -- like this amazing blue jumpsuit.
