We love Danish street style maven Pernille Teisbaek‘s minimalist chic style. Her modern, boyish and relaxed take on combining classic pieces is elegant, sophisticated and totally inspiring!
Nobody quite accentuates the magnificence of nature’s gems quite like Jacquie Aiche. Gemstones like tourmalines, rubies, sapphires, moonstones, aquamarines and my personal favorite chrysoprase are specially cut for Jacquie and set so exquisitely into delicate rose and yellow gold settings. When you put on her jewelry, whether it be her signature ear jackets, finger bracelets, stackable rings or layer worthy necklaces, you feel beautiful, powerful and wanting more. Take me in, I want to join Jacquie’s tribe.
With just a wheelbarrow, a shovel, a pickaxe and his dog, American artist Ra Paulette has spent the last few decades chiseling caves from sandstone mesas in Northern New Mexico. But these aren’t your “average” caves. Ra scrapes, chips and carves the walls to create breathtaking patterns with flawless texture and caverns that let in the most glorious light. It’s all just a bit bewildering and wonderfully insane. My fascination has be excited to check out the documentary Cavedigger, profiling him and his work.
Erica and I are unusually on top of our holiday planing this year – with our tree up early, our crafts underway, and our gifts all picked out. So when our friends at Madewell asked us to guest curate our favorite holiday items, we happily obliged. Not only did we already have some of our best loved Madewell items on our gift giving list this year, we are definitely guilty of putting some denim, accessories and knitwear on our wish lists as well! Check out our picks here and head over to their blog for a little Q&A with me and Erica. And if you are in Los Angeles, please visit us at Madewell at The Grove at 6pm to shop with us and do a little holiday crafting. RSVP here. And go gift well!
Throughout my childhood, my family had a weekend home just a few hours away in Big Bear in the San Bernardino mountains. I was recently reminiscing about our neighbor’s picture perfect two story A-frame home and was suddenly overcome with nostalgia. There is just something so beautiful about these homes and I wish I saw more of them daily. So until I make a move to the mountains, these inspiring images will just have to do. . .
