saturday any day

undoubtably, we all know about kate spade saturday by now. and yes, it’s amazing. the weekender bag is perfect for- well, a weekend trip. not only is it super cute, you can also design your own.

the shoe compartment is one of my favorite features. now go design yours and enjoy a weekend away!

a few of my favorite links


what are you all up to this weekend? aside from planning some summertime weekend trips, we’ll be doing some shopping (see below). but mostly just enjoying the warm sonoma sun! here a few of my favorite links from the web this week:

if my mother didn’t already have one of these, this would be the perfect mother’s day gift!

love these tips on how to get fit — at your desk!

I cannot wait to hear this new album by nick drake.

these pajamas are perfect for a lazy saturday!

j. crew is having a 25% off sale and gap just launched the DVF collection for kids and baby! I am so there!

happy weekend!


ok- i am seriously looking forward to summer, aren’t you!? i am especially looking forward to planning my ” mini-stays” (just for the weekend)
all though i do love jetting off to places farther than the desert or down the coast i can’t deny what they have to offer
check out some of our favorite places not so far away for a sweet mini- getaway.


one: rosa muerta joshua tree, ca
the absolute gem of architectural design. this combines luxury living with a glamorous way of camping.
“glamping”- it’s modern and so divine.

two: post ranch inn big sur,ca
for the romantic mini stay— right this way, please.

three: inn above the tide sausalito, ca
san fransisco is always a good idea- but if you have never been to sausalito, you will be charmed I’m sure.

four: ace hotel + swim club palm springs, ca
time to let lose! A place to relax and party with a group of your bests. It’s the hippest boutique hotel around- plus
who doesn’t love a good pool party!? Ahh- palm springs…

summer, hurry up!

cheers to the freakin’ weekend!

i’ve been wanting to post about the new film, the great gatsby for a couple of weeks now. i spent my morning looking at the BHLDN site and watching the 1974 version of the great gatsby and realized that i finally had my post inspiration! the costumes were so beautiful in this film! i’ve kinda always wanted to throw a roaring 20s party just so i have an excuse to dress that glamorous. after searching BHLDN, i found some pieces that really said, “gatsby” to me and you can add them to your outfit without actually attending a themed party.
now lets talk about the cast! the 1974 version starred mia farrow and robert redford, both of whom i love. this year we get to see leonardo dicaprio, carey mulligan, isla fisher, and toby maguire, to name a few. i have a feeling this will be my favorite leo film since romeo+juliet (they both happen to be directed by baz luhrmann).
i had a lot of fun looking at all of the book covers made for the f. scott fitzgerald novel. they are so beautiful, i love how these artists capture bits from the movie and make them into the book cover. there must be a version for each theme of the story, money; greed; beauty; love, passion….how much do you love the gold modern look?
i’ll definitely be there may 11 watching in awe, i’m sure.

we are going start talking about travel in the coming months because, well- travel is one of our favorite things to do! while we don’t get to jet set around the world …yet (positive thinking here), it is something that we do as much as possible and aspire to do much more of! here is what we have in mind for the warm months.
and hey- let’s not forget our own cities! i am lucky to live in LA, a destination many people make for their summer vacations. so i really try to keep that in mind when i can’t get out of town. in my city, i plan to visit more of the areas i don’t usually get around to such as east LA. i realize i’ve become a hopeless westsider, so this summer i’ll also be posting about all the other great places in my own city that i venture out to. stayed tuned and if you have any east LA recommendations, we’d love to hear them!

yeah, i’d wear that

sometimes it’s so nice to see a bunch of pretty things all in one place! here is a new installment where i’ll post a few pretty items that make me sigh. let’s begin with these fantastic sunglasses from owl. these three german guys got together and created a line of sunglasses that are stylish and not too expensive. “woot-woot!”

sandals are my staple! if i could wear them year round, i definitely would! luckily, LA gives me plenty of sandal appropriate weather.

can you tell i have spring fever? the weather has been perfect! i can’t remember the last time i felt real spring weather and it’s so special to experience it. i can’t quite get over how much i love this dress. not only the paint splattered fabric but the open back…it’s beautiful.


what are your warm weather staples?
