day in my dreams

Took a dive, started on a whim, and ended up being one of the most incredible adventures I could have asked for – Happy 1st year anniversary to day in my dreams.

The experience is beyond what I could ever have expected it to be, and you have made it that. Thank so much for supporting me from the very beginning through this first year. Your encouragement and inspirations have not only kept me blogging, but also brightened many days in my own personal life, like a close group of friends along for one of life’s many journeys. Having this opportunity to take something that is a passion and inner release for me, and being able to share that and interact with so many incredibly talented people, brands, and companies – is something I will be forever grateful for. I feel truly blessed.

Also, feeling a bit cheesy (but truly want to know how grateful I am for each of you) after this extended speech – so let’s get back to it shall we?

Thought it appropriate to make the announcement over a blog post from inside my home where it all started. Enjoying some cool rainy-day vibes and heavy knits through the beginning of fall in casuals for the past couple of weeks.

Marble case is from Madotta. Looked at several white cases, but the marble print on this one was just right, and I couldn’t live without it. My phone has been as spoiled as me! Plus, how cute is their notecard. Love them.


Anyone else flipping out over these gorgeous details??? #minimalistessentials Come to me. (posing with alluring face) jk. but for real, I’m still staring at this photo as I’m trying to type. (thank you Mavis Beacon for making that a bit easier). All of the above have been traveling everywhere with me since they arrived. Love the mesh band that Cluse is doing with their timepieces. Adds a nice sophisticated finish to pretty much everything I wear (one of the many perks of dressing mostly monochrome).


Wonderfully distressed pair of Denim from Lookbook Store. (Yes mom… I got them this way… on purpose) I think Naizak is a fan. Not really sure what she loves more, me or my rug which she continually tries to claim as her own.


Underneath it all, this comfy loungewear just came in from Somi. Beautiful (and incredibly comfy) basics. Feeling totally spoiled. (and the people that work there are amazing p.s.) Not only do they craft these with a lot of stretch for the way you move, they also do it for a good cause. Somi supports women all around the world by helping to provide housing, education, and leadership training for those who are not as fortunate as you and I to have those things so readily available to us. So if you’ve been looking for some loungewear or it’s just time to update your basics, be sure to check them out first and encourage the power of helping others, and creating beautiful, strong women everywhere.
