summer lovin’

20130621-130509.jpg

it’s official — SUMMER! and cheers to that june gloom burning off and letting the sun shine! i don’t know about you, but summer is my favorite season! it’s all about cool colors and minimalism!
everyone is out and ready for a good time — i just love that!

i spend a lot of time at the beach in the summer for surfing, exercise and basking in the sun. it’s the most relaxed time of year and we could all use a little of that, right?

well — we are off to seal beach this weekend! (stay tuned for pics of our beach stay)

happy weekend, friends!

Ciao!

date time

i wanted to take a moment to send out a little reminder to plan fun dates here and there, no matter how long you’ve been with your special someone. it can be so easy to go out with a group of friends and that’s great, but lets remember to take time out just for each other and do something a bit different.

this week, i’ll be planning a fun beach date with my guy where we can lounge comfortably for the day to talk, nap, and play. both of us being so busy doesn’t leave a lot of time for just the two of us to even walk down to the beach, so i can’t wait to leave work behind this weekend (i know, it’s only tuesday)!
don’t get me wrong, i absolutely love my creative work, it’s what i live for but working full time and spending all of my extra time on the blog and my photography…it can be very emotionally draining. so, let’s not forget to take time out and focus on the special people in our lives AND ourselves.

check back next week for photos of our fun day at the beach.

row, row, row your boat

last week, we wrote about spring style. here’s a sweet little video that sums up our day on the canals and you can really see beatrice’s dress in action.

by the way, i have to mention that i learned how to make videos in february at video blogshop! bri and angela are so great that they actually teach you how to make videos in photoshop in 1 day! i have a long way to go with my video skills but while editing, i was able to see all the things i can do differently for next time and i  know that they will just get better and better! so look out! for now, enjoy this one.

time away

kimber here, and back from a quick trip to palm springs. i’m feeling pretty inspired by the beautiful colors we worked with while we were there.

we are on the brink of our one year anniversary of the two, so cassa and i planned to take some new pictures for our website since we actually don’t have any of us on there at the moment. stay tuned for the reveal. it’s pretty exciting because we have learned so many things this year and are very excited to share them. the website is having a makeover and we can’t wait for you to see!

we can’t get enough of the spring time outfits. we must be ready to rid our closets of the plain colors and make room for new and fresh items. i know i wore a lot of black this winter.
for a little extra inspiration, we pulled beatrice away from her internship at who what wear and after a trip to the friday farmer’s market we rowed along the venice canals to let the sun shine on our faces.

here is what she has to say:
while it’s safe to say that sequins never really left the trend radar, most of the 2013 runway shows sported dresses, pants and shirts that glimmered in the catwalk lights. previously, sequins have been attributed to nights out on the town, and the only acceptable sequined outfits were those that were adorned in moderation. now, designers squeezed models into entire outfits that were purely glitter and shimmer.

that’s when i found this dress in my closet. completely embroidered on the top, and a beige high-low at the bottom, it seems to be an extravagant dress that never really found it’s way into any of my formal events or dinner dates. the beauty of this dress lies with how the pailettes work together with the sheer high-low. combined with neutral colors, sequins are day-time suitable, which is what this dress is all about. now that sequins are acceptable for day-time attire—hooray!—i knew that this dress was ready to leave the hanger._MG_1774
not too flashy, not too casual—and the cut-out sides take away from the “girly” factor and make it a little more playful._MG_1794

so don’t limit yourself to neon colors and floral prints; try the sequin trends and look tres chic for the beautiful spring days.

thanks to beatrice for being a superb model.
