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


10 Best :: Sneakers

While my spring shopping list is rife with the usual bikinis, cover-ups and cut off shorts, there’s one item that seems to be the official must-have accessory of the season. Before now, sneakers were stigmatized as ugly, utilitarian footwear, but the sartorial scene is suddenly singing a different tune! I’ve got my eyes on more… read more


Monochromatic Monday :: From Paris, With Love

Can you think of anything more romantic than spending February 14th in Paris? As a city that oozes amour 365 days a year, just being in the City of Light on Valentine’s Day has got to be pure magic. Admittedly, I don’t have much planned for this coming Friday, but I figured I’d sneak some Parisian… read more


10 Best :: Golden Globe Dresses

If you ask me, trimming 40 years worth of Golden Globe gowns down to my favorite 10 borders along impossible (I could have chosen at least five just from last night!)… but since the kick-off of award season has me feeling fired up, I thought I’d take on the challenge. Nothing brings me more joy than watching… read more


My Life, Styled :: Summer in the City

Greetings from Shanghai! I’ve spent the last 8 days exploring China in a very mad-dash fashion. I’ve been up at dawn (okay, maybe not that early — the sun rises here at 4:45am!) and jetting from site to landmark to foodie recommendation until my legs can barely stand up any longer.  It has been amazing! When reading… read more


Monochromatic Monday :: Watermelon & Tomato

Today’s inspiration board is a total celebration of summer’s bounty: the bumper crops of watermelon at farmer’s market, piles of juicy tomatoes that I can’t seem to use up fast enough and peaches that are so juicy they drip down your face like melty popsicles. Last week, we shot a chapter about “setting the summertime… read more


My Life, Styled :: Patriotic Prints

Happy (almost) Fourth of July!  If you were following along last year, you might remember me waxing poetic about my great love for this most patriotic of holidays.  It’s such a stress-free, no fuss holiday… and any celebration that requires meals on the grill, adult beverages and the great outdoors is fine by me! We are in… read more


Monochromatic Monday :: Waterfront Fourth

Raise your hand if the Fourth of July is your favorite holiday (if you just raised your hand behind your computer, give yourself a gold star). Even though I have a mid-July birthday, there’s nothing I look forward to quite like Independence Day. And if you take the holiday as seriously as I do, chances… read more


Food and Flowers :: Luxe Bohemian Girls’ Night

Though neutrals seem to be all the rage these days, it’s no secret that I’ve always had a deep love for bold patterns and rich textures, decadent sweets and unruly cocktails. Ashley here, and I suppose you could say my style sensibility is luxe-yet-bohemian. This particular photo shoot was inspired by the deep red color… read more


Mark & Graham Challenge :: A Crimson Holiday

Narrowing down the palette for my holiday table is always a bit of a conundrum: I adore a crisp, snowy white look… but then again, nothing’s cozier than tartan plaid… and I’m always a sucker for an evergreen palette that lets me incorporate lots of classic boxwood. Which is why it’s so fun to get… read more
