Can I tell you how much I'm obsessed with this look? A monochromatic ensemble with matching headpiece and shoes... give me! It's a summer must.
It's a new and improved version of our yearly calendar with a durable, hard-sided cover and monthly dividers for easy planning. Starting in August of 2018 and going through December of 2019, it includes both month-at-a-glance and week-at-a-glance layouts with pages upon pages of fresh illustrations to keep you inspired all year long. Happy planning!
What's better than navy paired with distressed denim and accented with a touch of black? A classic color combo that will never go out of style. It's casual Friday at its best.
Speaking of classics, one of my all-time favorite handbags just went on major sale. I've had this Rebecca Minkoff bag for years, and I mean years. It's the perfect bag for travel. It packs well if you prefer something bigger for day. It's a comfortable fit on your shoulder. And best of all, it's on sale PLUS an additional 25% off with code SUMMER25. Grab it while you can. It also comes in a mini version that I have myeye on.
What is it about a freshly cut watermelon paired with the color yellow? It's the most complimentary color combo and oozes that cheerful feel of summer. Eat up!
After a weekend spent catching up on household chores and spending Sunday resting, it's time to get moving again! Sometimes a candy-colored outfit is just what you need to get back into the groove of work. Not only is this a bright way to kick off the week, but this look complements our new tumblers that launched last week. I came across these rainbow colored reusable straws that are the perfect addition to the cups! Drink pretty :)
Throwing it back to 2011 with this illustration. It showcases a dress from one of Rachel Zoe's first collections. A little leopard never hurt anybody, did it? It's a classic pattern that, when done the right way, can be incredibly chic. I'm sure you've heard that the Nordstrom Anniversary sale opens to the public today. Keeping that in mind, there is a pair of leopard flats in the sale that would be great year-round, but also the perfect pop of patter for fall. Shop them before they sell out! I think they would be RZ approved.
I recently came across the color queen, Courtney Quinn, on instagram and instantly recognized her from this Microsoft commercial. Her cheerful outfits and cool color combos are just what my feed needs for a fresh batch of inspiration. I loved this post she did about summer swimwear including picks for all sizes and body shapes. We need more Courtneys in the world who are spreading body-positive vibes and brightening the repetitive reel of social media. See more of Courtney's posts on instagram and check out her blog here. You can also see this illustration come to life in here.
The Duchess of Sussex, aka Meghan Markle, continues to dazzle me with her understated but standout fashion choices. She stepped out this week in a pastel pink trench vest/dress that was every bit of classic perfection. It was a timeless choice that made waves and had every girl (myself included) googling "trench vest" looking for a suitable alternative to hers by Nonie (see it here). The Duke & Duchess were paying a visit to an exhibit honoring Nelson Mandela (see more about their visit here). What did you think of the look? If you are as big of a fan as me, check below for four great options at lower price points than hers that comes in around $1000.

I'm thrilled to reintroduce the Orca tumblers. For this batch I was inspired by long days at the beach, sunny days by the pool and the vibrant colors of summer. The three new designs exude that easy breezy feeling of the season. Fill one up with your favorite icy beverage to stay hydrated through the day. Don't worry... we brought back the first three designs as well.
Sharing another save the date where the location is a key focal point. Congrats to these two!
A custom illustration of the happy newlyweds!
When a client requests a save the date for a Napa destination wedding, it's an immediate influx of envy. This one was unique in the sense that I had been to the exact location of the wedding a few months prior, and yes, it's just as dreamy as you would imagine. Their big day is just a few months away! Wishing this lovely couple an early congrats!!
Craving a pop of yellow this summer. It's the most cheerful color and complements freshly sliced watermelon perfectly. Shop similar dresses to the one she's wearing below...
The perfect summer look includes a cute, flowy top with distressed jeans and a fun hat. It's understated, casual but cute enough for an impromptu dinner with friends, and most importantly, comfortable.
What's your favorite part of summer?
