“What’s so lovely about Wonder Woman is yes, she has the strength and power of a goddess, but she has the heart and mind of a human.”

Otherwise, this weekend I am…
…trying to decompress. We would have been done unpacking days ago, except that a few pieces of furniture got damaged during the move. I’m waiting for a carpenter to assess and fix the damage. I also sold one very large piece of furniture and the buyer has been taking his sweet time in arranging a mover. Fun times all around! My moving and home ownership cost a bundle. But we are planning to go to dinner and try to escape the mayhem for a little while! I’ll also be checking out the maternity ward of a hospital. It’s the final stretch before this little one arrives!
What are you up to this weekend?
Have a lovely weekend!
“I like a very simple, natural style. I like to come under the radar and be cool about my look, very classic and stylish.”
What is your style? Do you prefer neutral colors or would you prefer jewel toned hues? Would you prefer to wear classic pieces or do you sport the latest trends? I was intrigued by Victoria Beckham for UK Elle May 2017 because her outfits are so strikingly simple. She has definitely favored a more refined, classic style in the last few years. She banished mini-skirts and body con dresses and started wearing fitted, longer silhouettes.
Similarly, I have gravitated towards some of the simple pieces in my closet. I love long, draped white tops with maxi skirts or simple skirts. I also love black leggings and simple solid colored tops. While I don’t dress like this all the time, I can appreciate the classic and simple aesthetic. Even though I love ruffles, florals, and stripes, I also love the minimalist look of a black and white outfit. It’s a reminder that a classic and stylish outfit doesn’t have to be a complicated one.
Have a lovely week!
What are you wearing for Spring? I love spring – the season of birth and renewal. I like to bring out lighter and brighter colors in equally lighter silhouettes.

I haven’t dyed Easter eggs in years!
But it was definitely one of my favorite parts of the holiday as a child. I remember gleefully taking those store bought kits with the funny smells and dying my eggs all different shades. I would occasionally put on a sticker or two (or five, come on) and just staring at my final masterpieces. But I don’t think I did anything beyond staring at the eggs. I never ate any of the eggs which seems like such a shame and waste of food. So I was completely intrigued when I saw this Epicurious recipe for naturally dyed pickled easter eggs. These eggs were also bright, vibrant and adorable but made to be eaten. While I can’t put any stickers on them, I was happy to let my little one play with them and of course eat them as well.
Happy Fun, Free Friday lovelies!
What type of photography captures your attention? I was immediately struck by Hengki Koentjoro‘s black and white monochromatic photography. He captures his subjects in shade of black, white and gray. He beautifully balances shadows and light to highlight his subject in their natural surroundings. There is very little to distract from the main focus of the photo. It’s simple and stunning. Here are a few favorite pieces:
Yikes, have 3 months really passed by already? It seems like this year has rushed by so quickly so far! We were in California and New York for a few weeks so that was a great highlight of our first quarter. We went from a frigid winter storm to the cool, but manageable climates of the Bay area. I’m certainly thinking of floral prints and lighter clothing. I highlighted a few favorite pieces from the Victoria Beckham x Target collection and am really hoping to get this calla lily drop waist dress. It’s also my daughter’s birthday and I’m excited to have picked up a few vintage tiered stands. However, that has only whet my appetite to find more stands! I have a thing for trays, cake stands, and tiered cake stands. I’ll still be looking for a few great options!
What is on your wish list this month?
1. Black calla lily ruffle hem dress, Target, $35
What a delicate and gorgeous dress!
I adore marble accents and the gold works beautifully against the marble.
3. Two-Tier Gold Leaf Serving Stand & Plate Set by Godinger, Off Fifth, $124.99 (from $150)
The gold vine embellishments make this next level chic!
4. Patchology Illuminate Lace Printed Edition FlashMasques/4 Facial Sheets, Saks Fifth Avenue, $30
I tried to order these masques, but they were out of stock. Aren’t they gorgeous and gotta love a mask with brightening and hydrating powers!
5. Honest Beauty Truly Kissable crayon, $18, Dermstore
I’ve been meaning to get more sustainable and natural beauty which also works! I’d love to try this out!

The best things come in small packages right? I love miniature things and Aiclay takes miniatures to a whole new level. Singaporean based artist Jocelyn creates the most detailed and lovely tiny sculptures. These delightful little bites are truly bite-sized and contain such beautiful details. I love her “Aiclay” packaging as well. She holds workshops and teaches others to create these lovely little creations.
