Yesterday was emotional. I decided to retire, for the most part, my favorite and most sentimental pair of booties. These boys were picked up in a little town outside of Cinque Terre for, I’d say, $20. Impervious to the fact that I was purchasing them from a store with an aesthetic similar to America’s Rave, I took a chance on them. They quickly became my favorite pair of boots and the wear and literal tears on them are proof.
I’d been looking for a replacement pair for a few months but couldn’t find one that compared. The toes were perfectly round, the heel a perfect length to bring my flare jeans off the ground and the height just right to tuck my skinny jeans. As I hobbled over to the new pair due to the dulling and uneven heels of the former, I knew I had found their match.
So while you enjoy a laugh imagining me sitting in my room putting jewelry on my new pairs of shoes, because, in reality, isn’t everything a place to display your jewelry, I know my Siena friends will smile at these boots, knowing they come with a lot of history and love.

While my iPhone case has been up for debate… my coworker calling it an easter egg and my mom poo poo’ing it, i think it is awesome and when I saw the door above, i knew it was proof.

Happy Halloween! But don’t be fooled, this isn’t my costume.
Picking materials is one of my favorite parts of being in the interior design field, so I am always drawn to clothing and accessories that have fun or unique aspects that I could see on a fabric or as a detail on a piece of furniture. Where better to wear these Isabel Marant look-a-likes than at homecoming, where my pants aren’t the loudest thing at the party.

There are so many ways to get inspired these days. From shelter magazines to blogs to my morning walk to work, I am constantly taking pictures and ripping out pages. Instagram is a great way to get a sneak peak into other peoples lives and be inspired by the same things that are inspiring them at that very moment.
Take a look at some of my favorite instagram shots from the past couple weeks:
Chiara from The Blonde Salad has a life to be envious of… but that blazer… I would literally give all of my favorite possessions to own that blazer.
See the blazer by Atelier Azza in orange.
and blinged out. Worn by the designer herself!

Not only am I obsessed with the stone detail on my friend’s necklace, but the coral, sea foam green and gold are the perfect way to add color to your day… and who says this combination has to end with when the long summer days end.
School starts up today. And while that usually signals the end of summer, I’m not giving up yet… labor day is still around the corner and it’s still too hot for me to wear jeans. I used this past weekend to relax, get organized, and sneak in a DIY project or two.
I work in a profession where being well dressed is almost as important as being appropriately dressed. As I gear up for the fall, here’s some inspiration for the wardrobe. Give or take some pieces depending on your industry:
