I went on a little bit of a nail polish spree last time I went to the grocery store. I haven’t bought any in so long I kind of went bananas! These are my favorites from what I picked up. I think it’s nice to have some neutrals mixed with statement colors for a nice manicure/pedicure contrast. I’d totally pair a navy manicure with a peach pedicure for a more polished look, and the magenta and gold combo for a trip to the beach. Will you be wearing any of these colors this summer?
Details and where to buy below.

Sometimes I struggle to write blog posts because I feel like they have to make so much sense. Every post must have a color scheme, copy that brings the graphic to life and purpose. It can feel like a tall order on a Sunday night or weekday morning. So I’ve decided to make a new column based solely on what I’m loving and doing right now, even if the topics are a bit disjointed: the new recipe I’m cooking, the new hairstyles I’m wearing to work, the book I can’t put down. I was inspired by this column from Sarah at Note to Self (one of my favorite blogs and bloggers) and I wanted to try my own spin on it.
So for the first one: everything I bought online sale shopping this weekend from Madewell and Anthro (woah it was a lot) + much more after the jump…including an Anthro pop-up shop in Austin Thursday!

Loving everything over at the Australian brand Arnhem Clothing. Their off the shoulder blouses and long kimono robes are perfect weekend wear, don’t you think? Love the shot of the girl and the llamas.

I’m so excited for this giveaway! I met Carly, the designer of C.A.B Collection, during SXSW this year and fell in love with her bags. The beautiful quality, fun colors and unique designs make them really special and the leather is so lovely! I have one of her bags in a gorgeous lilac (can you spot it in this photo?) and it’s become my new go-to. Today one lucky reader gets their own!
Hi friends! I’m super excited to show y’all the updated Grown-up Shoes that Chelsea and I have been working so hard on for the past few months. We started this redesign in October and just finished it in March before turning the keys over to Sean to work his developer magic.
I’d love to show y’all some of our initial rounds of design that got us to the current layout!

Even though I left New York six years ago when I graduated from college, I still get the question “Do you miss it?” almost always when I tell someone that I lived there. I think it seems natural that I would; New York is so busy, so beautiful, so romantic—especially if you’ve never lived there:) And while there are some big things that I miss, funnily enough…

(I loved reading everyone’s responses to the post with the new Grown-up Shoes artwork! It’s been really fun to hear everyone’s thoughts on the process. Thank you for sharing!)
Do you ever feel that there is more than one version of yourself, stylistically speaking? I think the most personal styles are created through a combination of a few different vibes. Maybe you’re preppy and eclectic; minimal and tomboy; trendy and polished. I find myself most often gravitating towards two distinct styles: a ladylike look with soft colors, feminine silhouettes and sweet accessories or a bohemian vibe with looser shapes, more prints, statement jewelry and eclectic accessories.
