Monochromatic Monday :: Natural Selection

If you’re a person who loves design, you may find yourself prone to short-lived love affairs with trends (read: phases). I’m no different, I’ve been through neon jeans, ikat prints, and yes — I even had my moment with the chevron. That’s why when I find something that appeals to my “forever taste”, I know… read more


Monochromatic Monday :: Take a Hike

If today’s inspiration board doesn’t make you itch for a dose of the great outdoors, I don’t know what will.  A friend of mine spontaneously headed out to Rocky Mountain National Park last week, and looking at his photos got me reminiscing about the countless summer hikes and camping trips I took growing up, and… read more


Monochromatic Monday :: Piña Colada

With July 4th under our belts, it feels like we’re in the home stretch of summer… and if we don’t embrace the lazy, carefree days now, we’ll turn around one day and autumn will have surprised us with its all-too-sudden arrival. There are a handful of activities that only feel right in the heat of… read more


Monochromatic Monday :: White Out

There’s just something about summer that has me naturally gravitating to the heavenly hues of all things white. Think crisp fabrics, white sand beaches, fluffy clouds and icy treats…hello, paradise. Thankfully, this summer’s white-on-white trend has got us all pairing our favorite whites with… even more white. Ditching those colors and pulling out our favorite crisp and… read more


Monochromatic Monday :: Indigo Pools

If you’ve spent even one summer in Austin, then you know the absolute best way to spend it is underwater. Our sizzling city is blessed with some of the best public swimming pools in the state, and our natural water swimming holes are truly magical destinations. That’s why I’m completely enamored with the instagram account… read more


Monochromatic Monday :: Citrus & Sorbet

It started with those popsicles… I spotted them and suddenly I could taste summer. There’s just something about those hot colors that just screams fun-in-the-sun, and the weather in Austin is calling for just that. With temps in the 70′s & 80′s, clear skies and cool breezes, we’ve had the most gorgeous few days, and popsicles, sorbet… read more


Monochromatic Monday :: Etched in Stone

There’s an old French proverb that says, “Write injuries in sand, kindnesses in marble.” Such a lovely way to express the idea that, while negative thoughts and emotions slip from memory, we should keep the gracious acts of others front and center in our hearts. There’s nothing that conveys permanence better than marble (just take… read more


Monochromatic Monday :: Coast to Coast

It’s that time of year again…when temperatures start to climb just enough to spur dreams of summer sunshine, and a little sand in between your toes while cradling a piña colada (or two). So, as I ditch my winter coats and recover my favorite pair of flip-flops from the (very) bottom of my closet, I can’t… read more


Monochromatic Monday :: Hit Snooze

Good morning, fellow sleepyheads! It’s Monday again, and I’m coming off the best kind of weekend: beautiful weather and nothing on the calendar. My Saturday didn’t really start until noon, after my boyfriend and I indulged in not one but two entire episodes of Saved By the Bell on Netflix. We marveled at how we… read more


Monochromatic Monday :: Welcoming Wildflowers

This past weekend, I headed 3 hours north of Austin to spend a relaxing weekend at my friend’s gorgeous ranch. Since we officially welcomed spring last week, it should have been no surprise that the drive was speckled with patches of wildflowers… but for some reason, that first sighting of bluebonnets and cardinals had me… read more
