I first discovered Yoli & Otis on Instagram, as I do most things these days, while pregnant with Coco. I became smitten with designer Lena Catterick’s adorable family and followed them along on their adventures around Bali and Bryon Bay with envy. Naturally, I bought into their gracefully minimalist and natural lifestyle with their organic and plant dyed baby carriers, which I loved. I even prematurely bought Coco a couple of ruffled, linen dresses months before she was even born. The Australian based brand has expanded its childrenswear collection with a wide selection of cotton gauze and linen shorts, blouses, and jumpsuits – I mean, the chambray overalls just slay me! The newly added womenswear has also been the perfect extension to the label, with equally adorable yet refined overalls, wrap blouses and high waisted trousers. Just the kind of mother and daughter twinning I’m down for . . .
If you follow my stories on Instagram, you’ll know that I just scored an antique fireplace mantle on Craigslist. You guys, this baby was a steal. And it just might be the solution to my one regret when we renovated our house: getting rid of the fireplace. I can’t quite remember why we decided to do that . . . I think we were just trying save time and cut costs. But for years, especially during the cold winter months, I’ve grieved over the loss of being able to sit in front of a cozy fire. While it might be a bit complicated to actually re-install a working fireplace, I’ve a mantle and that’s a great start. To refresh your memory, this is the where it will go . . . but I need your help! Should I paint it white or black?? To keep it as is?
Acrylic earrings have made a comeback except now, they’re 10,000 times better than their 80s predecessors. I’m obsessing over all the amazing acrylic, resin and tortoiseshell earrings right now. Oversized, gold accented, hoops, or interlocking . . . I need them all!
Scandinavian meets Spanish in this stunning urban residence in Palma, Mallorca. Spain based architecture firm AVW Arquitectura and Stockholm based interior designers Whyte Lilja collaborated onImpremta Garden, an apartment complex housed in a 400 year old building. 12 flawless units were designed with modern amenities, extra high ceilings and outdoor gardens, while still maintaining the structure’s historical character with its original beams, Chevron patterned oak floors and natural textures. Just dreamy. . .
There’s a new hat line in town and I’m in love. And it’s no wonder one of my favorite travel photographers, is part of the creative brains behind the brand. Lucy Laucht, together with Johanna Peet of Peet Rivko and Nicole Najafi of Industry Standard, collaborated on a collection of Southwestern inspired hats, handmade by America’s oldest hat maker. In fact, the multi-generation milliner crafted Georgia O’Keefe’s iconic hats in the early 1900s! Tio y Tia recently launched with two classic styles: The Gambler, a black hat with a classic curved brim and O’Keefe inspired chin strap and The Dolores, a brown hat with a wide brim. I dig the short and flat crowns, as well as the promise that the hats only get better with age. Sold.
