i have all sorts of dreamy little dreams. one of them is to open my own store complete with all sorts of goodies--the kinds of things i like to share with you here. it would be so great to have a place to interact with clients and friends in a retail space while running my graphic design business from the back office. and what more can you ask for than a fun loft-style pad upstairs to call home? have you ever read friday night knitting club? it reminds me of georgia's sweet set-up. plus this place is in marin county--quite possibly the coolest place on earth.
what do you dream about?

you and me dress | modcloth.com | $50
why it works: this tunic style frock is fun and pretty without being too cutesy and the soft detailing around the neck means you don’t have to bother with a bunch of accessories because they are built right in! i love the vintage "jan-brady-party-dress" vibe, but it is also very current. plus the chambray keeps it casual which means it can multi-task--I think it would look great with a pair of slim, white bermuda shorts, and a big straw hat for a beach bbq or other casual summer soiree. and if you are really daring, you could even try it with a pair of black leggings or dark-washed (I don’t do leggings personally, but some of you out there may have forgiving thighs).
yellow enamel maridold ring by ollipop | thepepperkids.com | $32
why it works: do I really need to give a reason why beautiful pieces like this work? Although the dress calls for few accessories, details are important and the pretty colors of this ring sing “spring!”
getby platform wedge in light brown by nine west | amazon.com | $79
why they work: man, i love these shoes. it’s all about the wedges ladies—they are comfortable, sexy and in this neutral color will go with everything in your wardrobe from spring skirts to boot-cut jeans. i love the details on these one especially the way the top piece wraps around the sole. this is especially flattering for the petite among us as that extra leather helps draw the eye all the way to the ground.
wicker straw clutch in yellow | talbots.com | $99
why it works: it’s classic. enough said. you will have it forever. and, I have soft-spot for straw bags.
happy mother's day weekend, my lovelies!
