Gift Guide For The Homebody

Posted on: Monday, December 14, 2015

I feel like I'm traveling every single weekend. I would love a cozy, calm, weekend in my own home. So that's the gift guide I created.

A Perfect Christmas Gift: LINDROTH ISLAND BAGS

Posted on: Tuesday, December 8, 2015

I am so obsessed with these bags by designer Amanda Lindroth. I first discovered her from her work at The Dunmore and just recently stumbled upon these custom island bags.
It's so hard to choose one though? I'm undecided between orange grey and blue.
Also, what's a girl to do? Do you get your initials as they are now or your *new married monogram?
Decisions, decisions ;)

Note: These designs are done by hand and usually take three weeks. If gifting for the holidays I would print out a picture of the bag and place it in a card.

Gift Guide: The Glamazon

Posted on: Thursday, December 3, 2015

Two posts in a row! 
This happened while I should have been packing for my weekend away. 
Oh well... here it is, the gift guide for "the glamazon". We all have a little one inside us somewhere ;)


Gift Guide: For the Hostess

Posted on: Wednesday, December 2, 2015

I'm so excited to finally get a gift guide up! Life has been super busy and it's been tricky to carve out any down time. I love designing these little posts- it helps me unwind. Here's what I've put together for "the hostess".  Shop all items below, except for the long rectangular Jill Rosenwald tray here. Also check out this garland here. I want it cascading down my mothers table (It's 6').

Sorry for the lack of posts! I'm still alive- just engaged!
Holy cow- what an exciting whirlwind it has been. I'll be back to regular posts soon but thought I'd share a little of my recent inspiration for the wedding. Clearly, I've got a thing for garlands (might have to keep that in check). But I'm allergic to flowers so I think it's such a nice way to make a visual statement without an asthma attack (Chic Geek people, chic geek)!
I'd love to incorporate otomi fabric somewhere as Mexico was our first big trip together. 
Also, calligraphy. Lots and lots of it.
Any thoughts or tips to bear in mind as I begin this exciting time?

Cooler weather means winter coats and the ability to wear a blazer indoors without getting too hot! I'm so excited! 
Here are my picks for staying "cool" this winter
Slow clap for that punny sentence above...there's a reason this thing is called "Chic Geek"

Bring It, Winter.

Posted on: Sunday, November 8, 2015

I LOVE winter and the chance to change gears with my wardrobe. I'm obsessed with the above cape which is probably over the top for most people so I included the matching bag too which adds such a fun pop to any ensemble. The gloves- I want them in every single color offered and the boots are the perfect height for jeans and dresses- I need a super low pair and think I just found a winner at 40% off!

Posted on: Thursday, November 5, 2015

Love the idea of bringing these cocktail napkins as a hostess gift this fall. 
Can you believe this picture looking out into the kitchen/dining area is taken from THE LAUNDRY ROOM?
Love this shirt is white and definitely in black too.
Need to cozy up in this blanket
Neutral heels are a must at this point for me.
Major sale on these shades.

Currently Coveting: Back To Basics

Posted on: Sunday, November 1, 2015

I'm trying to get back to basics and invest in staple pieces with clean lines. Here's a few items I would love to add to my wardrobe.

Posted on: Tuesday, October 27, 2015

These beautiful flats are $100 and come in so many fun colors
beige / sky / silver / black / white / nude / red

I have the sky blue in my cart at this very moment! 

Beacause I love it...

Posted on: Thursday, October 22, 2015

Things I want but do not need ;)
I would love to use the indigo blue textile kit! What a fun project.
I've also been meaning to add Absolutely Beautiful Things to my coffee table book collection. I last posted on Anna here and here. She's pretty much a genius.

I'm fairly obsessed with the entire line and seriously restraining myself at this very moment from buying everything (even the crib- no kids, no problem) I originally purchased the extra wide dresser and am so happy with the quality of the piece!

The Holidays Are Coming

Posted on: Wednesday, October 14, 2015

I know it's early but I'm already getting really excited for the holiday season! Above is a round-up of little wishes for the upcoming season
How about the blue and white ornaments? I want a tree with only those and big red bows!
One of my favorite parts of the holidays is snail mail! Sending and receiving warm wishes with the above accessories would be so fun.
Wouldn't it be nice to welcome friends and family into your home with a pineapple door knocker
Also, I've mentioned I can't cook numerous times- bread and cheese plates- I'm on it!

25% Off

Posted on: Tuesday, October 13, 2015

Shopbop is having their friends and family sale where you can save 25% when you use the code INTHEFAM25
There's plenty of amazing pieces but I wanted to highlight scarves for fall. I find that scarves are the easiest way to pull an outfit together and make it look polished. It's just a next level accessory and I think they are totally worth the investment. You can tie the same scarf a host of different ways and have a different look and feel each time (check out this book that gives you 33 different ways). I'm seriously coveting this cashmere scarf in heather and seascape heather. Do you have a favorite?

Gen Sohr does it again!

Posted on: Monday, October 12, 2015

My girl crush on Gen Sohr continues. I first posted about her in 2013 here when she was featured in the now defunct Matchbook Magazine. I've followed her over the years and recently caught many glimpses of the progress on her new home through instagram. She and her husband, Ben, are the design team behind Pencil and Paper and are featured montly in Domino. Their 1930's Nashville home was just featured on OKL's blog and it is not to be missed!
Are you dying? Yeah, me too! 
Check out the full story here, where you can actually shop the look and learn more about Gen's creative process. I'm in awe of her ability to layer patterns and textures. They ultimately don't compete and create a cohesive look in a space. 
Happy Monday! 
Check out Gen's entire portfolio here and find her blog here.

Neutral pieces I'm currently into.
I think I should add a little rude nude to my art collection and I "need" more flats. Also, seriously into the idea of these overalls for fall.

What a week!

Serious lack of posts due to a ridiculous schedule. But, here's my latest finds. How much fun are those galaxy sheets above? Love them.
Happy Sunday


Modern Glam

Posted on: Tuesday, September 22, 2015

Just a few modern pieces that I would love to incorporate into my home. I'm seriously coveting the painting- how great would it look over a Dorothy Draper espana chest!? (check out a nice replication chest here).  Also, fairly obsessed with the gold leaf butter knives which may not technically be considered "modern" but let's go with it because they are definitely glam ;)

A few fall layers

Posted on: Sunday, September 20, 2015

A great way to reflect seasonal changes in your home decor is to switch out accessories. Pillows and throws are a budget friendly way to interpret autumn. I also like to do it by replacing flowers in vases with greenery. I added the seagrass buffalo and stag to the round-up because they are such a light whimsical take on taxidermy (which is seasonally appropriate but not personally something I'm drawn to). How do you like to bring fall into your home?

I've been waiting ever since Jill Rosenwald instagrammed a sneak peak at her latest blue and white "Delft" collection. I'm about to order the tray here.

Stubbs- get on my feet please.

As someone who has taken the whole "Dear Diary" thing a little too far... I would love to have these journals on hand.

Loving these bookends.
