The Color that Will Spring You Right Into Fall

We’re all too familar with the standard Fall uniform: black, tan, navy and maybe even a touch of cream for excitement {sarcasm fully intended}. But even if you’re a total color-phobe, we’re here to assure you, you can add color to your fall wardrobe – especially if it’s this lush moody mossy emerald green!

Sure, a closet full of neutrals is a very wise investment. When you stick with a uniform you’re suddenly able to mix and match with ease, you’re likely to wear pieces more often and can keep your closet edited down {my current fashion life-goal!}. But every once in awhile it’s fun to throw in a curve ball and this season I’m all about this crazy cool green hue! More sultry than your standard emerald, but more luscious than the old-school forrest green, it’s actually rather difficult to put your finger on what makes it so perfect. One line called it Woodland Green – I think that gets close. It’s like the deepest, richest green of a pine tree. Regardless, I love how perfectly it would pair with black, with brown – even navy!

If you’re still not totally convinced, why not test it out with a little nail polish {they call the color Shutter.}? Or if you want to keep things understated {and hidden!} how about switching up your lingere!?

I think my favorite option is that super cute handbag. It’s nice to give your standard black bag a break every now and then! What do you think? Would you add a new hue to your fall look?

Trend Spotting: Surfbords as Home Decor

Beyonce and Jay Z were recently in San Francisco on their On The Run tour, but you knew that because you went. We, apparently, were the only ones in the entire city who DIDN’T go and oh, we felt the sting. While everyone was jammin’ to “Drunk in Love” we were stuck in the left over concert traffic only to be proceeded by an equally monotonous night. And to top off a serious case of Tuesday night FOMO, if the rumors are true, the power couple is headed for the dreaded “D” word and we just. can’t. handle. it.

So in honor of Queen Bey and Jay, we rounded up our favorite surfboard inspirations, or should we say surfbort inspirations? We’ve been seeing these dudes everywhere, from decor to editorials and we can only believe that it was partly Beyonce’s doing. After all, she runs the world, right? On her surfbort.

We’re in love with the idea of surfboards as decor, especially when they’re not your typical “surf’s up, bro” board. A gorgeous blond wood with a vintage-inspired shape is so cool leaning against a blank wall and the Gray Malin photography infused board is literally a work of art. Obsessed.

Speaking of art, fashion and interior designers have definitely received the surf delivered memo. We can’t decide if we’d rather break waves on Kelly Wearstler’s beautifully crafted wooden boards or Alexander Wang’s marble beauties. Probably Kelly’s, right? Marble sinks- in the literal sense of the word only!

And just in case you’re planning to ride this trend as long as we are, we present a surfbort moodbort. <– We had to!

Have you caught the surfboard wave too? Or are you ready for this trend to crash and break? Us? Oh, we’re prepared to ride this baby till the final days of summer are gone! –Bianca

5 White Bedroom Ideas

Guys, I have an unhealthy addiction; with all white bedrooms! Pristine, crisp, beautifully impractical white bedrooms. I love the minimalist feel, the clean simplicity and soothing calm of the monochromatic space. White bedrooms feel spa-like, as if they offer a retreat from the mess of daily life. My Bedrooms Pinterest board runneth over.

The challenge, obviously, is to actually keep life’s messes from destroying your all-white room! I’ve actually always had a love affair with all things white. I still remember my mom trying to talk me out of white Keds circa second grade because she knew I’d want to accomplish the nearly impossible task of keeping them clean! And I’ve never met a white tee or button down that I don’t love.

While all white bedding requires similar amounts of work to keep stains at bay {especially with kids – of the two or four-legged variety}, there other other ways to accessorize with white! I’d gladly add any of these pieces to our bedroom!

I’m curious- do you dare stick with all white bedding or decorate mostly with white? We have for the past couple years and so I’m now the queen of laundry and am BFFs with Oxy-clean and the Magic Eraser. But I will still argue it’s worth the extra effort!! Collapsing into the fluffy white cloud of goodness each evening just might be the best part of my day! — Erin
