Perfection. I've been completely obsessed with Vanessa Traina and Morgan Wendelborn's e-shop The Line, and their NYC showroom The Apartment. Their curated collection of timeless, effortless and artfully minimalist investment pieces (what is quintessential?) for the home and closet delight and inspire. I want it all.
Home essentials include some of my favorites - Le labo's Santal 26 candle, hand blown glass fixtures by Lasvit, and this classic mid century daybed from Fritz Hansen.
Take a peek inside the closet and you'll find new affordable labels like Mansur Gavriel (bucket bag is on my bucket list of things to buy before I die) alongside staples like Vince and higher end pieces by Hermes creative director Christophe Lemaire. I'm especially loving their Protagonist line of shirts designed by Wendelborn - refined essentials as they call it.
Nothing but gorgeous sunshine these past few days! Worked all morning but decided to take the afternoon off to enjoy it all with my little one. Just the other night I came across some photos of her when she was a year old - the cutest little butterball EVER. I cried. Like a baby. I get so emotional when I realize how fast she is growing up! At night, she reads me her stories. When we're getting ready, she tells me how she wants her hair done. And most of the time, she is the one who reminds me where we parked our car or what I was supposed to pick up at the supermarket. I swear I blinked and my baby became a lady. I try really hard to make sure I absorb each and every moment. From watching her brush her teeth, tying her shoes, to yes- even sleeping.
I'm such a sucker for miniature anything. So naturally, when I see adorable mini sized versions of my closet faves, I have to get them for Natalie. I wore these Zara skorts all throughout summer last year, and I know Natalie will do the same! Snagged hers a couple of sizes too big so she can wear them for a while.
Thanks so much for dropping by! Have a great rest of the week.

I am on the hunt for a raincoat. This has been on the top of my list of items to keep an eye out for so long. Seems like an endless search since nothing I come across looks versatile, chic, or functional enough. Anyone have any suggestions?
Trying to desperately break away from the wellies and parka. Thankfully the rain hasn't been torrential and I've been managing to stay comfy and dry with lots of layers, sneakers, and my trusty umbrella.
This has been one amazing week. So many things to be grateful for! Maybe I'll share more details soon! ;)
Hope you had a fantastic weekend! Thanks for dropping by!
My kind of color! It has been an amazing first year in my 30's and I am so excited for what's coming next. I've been blessed with so much throughout the years, and I'm so thankful. Something that I didn't expect was how much I would enjoy this age. The teens and 20's are all about making those mistakes - falling down, getting up, and going through all the growing pains. At 30, you know yourself better, understand what things matter most, and can make use of what you've learned and earned....and enjoy it all with the people you love!
Hubby spoiled me rotten this year! Love him and our little family more than words can say! We are off to enjoy a proper date night to celebrate.
Thanks for dropping by and for the sweet Birthday wishes i've received from near and far!
I've been battling a weird bug since Thursday, but that didn't stop me from enjoying the weekend. We checked into The Westin Saint Francis for a little 2-day family staycation to celebrate my upcoming birthday. Even if San Francisco is practically our backyard, it felt great to "get-away" and explore our favorite city up close and personal.
