The ROUNDUP // 8.20.17

A few of my favorite finds in fashion, art, interiors, and more from around the web.

1  I'm so inspired by Rejina Pyo's Fall 2017 collection. I think it is both incredibly current and also timeless, and that's a hard balance to strike. (Honestly WTF)  |  2  The piercing gazes and layered prints in Kelly Beeman's fashion illustrations are really captivating to me. (Kelly Beeman)

 

3  This home tour of an Austin "Vintage Treasure Hunter" is full of charming finds and clever decor ideas. (Apartment Therapy)  |  4  My current favorite TED Talk: Françoise Mouly, The New Yorker's art director, tells the stories behind the magazine's iconic covers. (TED)

 

5  I loved this studio tour with Heidi Lee, an innovative milliner inspired by surrealism. (Nylon)

 

And a few more...

These tiny dioramas blew my mind.

Color Factory looks so cool!

Are you going boot crazy yet? These pink velvet beauties and these trompe l'oiel sock boots are topping my list.

I love the heirloom quality of this Stella & Dot necklace.

The most high-fashion temporary tattoos to ever exist.

I loved this article about leaning into what you already are.

This is my life: 14 examples of extroverted introverts.

And my favorite thing I've read lately, Austin Kleon on a major lesson in learning from his 4-year-old son.

And in case you missed it around here, I shared a retro-inspired Last Days of Summer playlist.

It's also the last day to enter my Maskcara giveaway, so if you haven't done so already, head on over to Instagram and tag a beautiful friend!

Weekly Roundup 20/52

This weekly roundup (especially the link from Fran of Fall for DIY) has me feeling all the self-acceptance feels. I think of all the negative aspects that are associated with the internet- mindless content, trolling, self-absorption, and materialism- I hope that more importantly it has helped us to make major strides in accepting ourselves and one another. The internet and social media, I think, has really switched the conversation to inclusion and celebrating individuality rather than such a focus on "perfection." Some of these links are the usual colorful creative content I'm always drawn to, but this week's roundup also has a running theme of personal acceptance. I'm into it.

  1  I've been thinking about these roasted strawberry oatmeal cups ever since I read this post. Plus they're (optionally) vegan and gluten free, so there are wins all around. (Hummusapien)  |  2  Have you heard of Coverstory, the exciting new boutique for sizes 10 and up? Founder Heidi Kan noticed that “everything that was available [in larger sizes] was either way too sexy or way too matronly, there’s just nothing that was very modern and chic.” Enter some seriously cool silhouettes and a dream store is born. I would love to live in this dress all summer. (Coverstory)

 

3  I've always loved Katie Rodgers' romantic ballet illustrations, so it's pretty awesome to see her Belle of the Ball print translated into sleepwear for all ages in a collaboration with BedHead Pajamas. (Paper Fashion)  |  4  I've never pressed flowers but I've always wanted to try it, especially when the final product is so gorgeous! This tutorial is really good and at the end you could have some really impressive new wall art. I'm sold! (Design Love Fest)

 

5  "I could call the Midwest for you?" Lol.

 

And Don't Miss These...

I so related to this touching post on how hard it can be to put yourself out there in the name of blogging.

The three questions to ask yourself when you're procrastinating.

I thought these over-sized house numbers were super cute.

Decor solutions for music lovers.

Lisa Frank Zebra Cakes. Enough said.

What is summer if your plates don't have a shark wearing a bikini on them?

A gorgeous new collection from Oana Befort.

I'd have to sell my car to buy this dress, but it's sssoooo cool...

As are these new Adidas wood slides.

And finally, #bloggervibes.
