Yesterday, Free People launched their new ‘movement’ line – ballet, yoga and surf wear. Now, I’m no yogi… or ballerina, but I do fancy myself something of a mermaid and the sporty girly surf /water wear sent my heart a flutter. So perfect for all of our fantasy surfer girl lives, right? All made more magical by being shot in the surf and sand of Costa Rica. All of a sudden I am having serious wanderlust, wanting an exotic surf vacation, having flashbacks to my trip to Costa Rica a couple of summers ago (photo diary part 1 & part 2 here!), and my college year abroad I spent in Cape Town taking surf lessons with my good friend Louis…. Take me back! Check out my favorite styles here below (click on each item to shop!) – don’t forget to pick up yourself a custom painted surf board, we all need one!

It was her first time at Terrain and I couldn’t wait to take her there. It was such a pretty day, and the nursery and store was filled with so much Spring greenery and life. I was so excited to visit in this time of year – just as Spring was blossoming – I wanted to truly see life come into bloom after such a long, cold and dreary winter. The visit restored in me a certain lightness…. happy day, earth <3


looking forward


talula mott t-shirt

I wish I could tattoo this onto my forehead, but instead, I’ll settle for the friggin T-shirt. I have to say, this has turned into the mantra I find myself repeating out loud to myself frequently. Sometimes it’s so hard to keep yourself from thinking about the past and decisions that you’ve made and regretted or just wondered if you took the right path. Lately it’s taken all I have to just say, hey, move it on forward, sister. Because you can’t change your past and you can’t change your decisions, you can only learn from them and keep moving forward.

And when it’s hard to remember this, there is always the tee shirt. Or the tattoo, if that’s your thing.

p.s. Aritzia not sells online! One of my favorite stores, and since there isn’t one here in Philadelphia, I’ll be taking to the net to stock up on my favorite light high low hem tees. <3

Ear Cuffed

ear cuff trend

clockwise from top right:  Urban Outfitters Crystal Teardrop Cuff, Topshop rhinestone ear cuff, MaggieMadeWithLove Dainty Bow ear cuff, Annelise Michelson Carnivorous Spike Ear Cuff, Repossi Ear Cuff, Mania Mania Idol Ear Cuff, Asos Crystal Stud Ear Cuff

I am ear cuff obsessed over here. It started when I first saw the ‘Mania Mania’ stone cuff on Shopbop and had to have it – and it has just kept on going. Like internet stalking see what is out there can’t decide what to get next obsessed.  I need another. I like them pretty, jeweled and girly- exhibit A: Diane Kruger, or tough and edgy cool- exhibit B: Gaia Repossi in her own design: the Rolls Royce of ear cuffs- 18k gold and 0.61 carat diamond studded- my god, there’s an ear cuff. Michelle Williams looks seriously cute in it, I’m jeal.  Did I get you into this trend yet?
