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!

Dress Your Nest | Pantone Colors of 2016: Rose Quartz and Serenity

A fashion-meets-interiors celebration of Pantone's colors of the year, Rose Quartz and Serenity. The more I take a look at these two hues, the more I'm loving them. To me, they are a perfect blend of uplifting, energizing freshness and peaceful calm. It's basically yoga for your eyeballs.

Weekend Reading Vol. 8

Okay, so the weekend's technically over and I'm totally late on this post. But my fiance's family was visiting and I chose life over blogging. It's the summer- sue me. Well, please don't, but do check out these links (they're pretty cool)...

1  I've been completely obsessing over interior design lately. I was so excited by this thrifty glam home because the style is not only gorgeous and unexpected, but also seems very livable and achievable. (Design Sponge)  |  2  And there are so many knockout moments in this fashion-forward home, from the inspired punches of color to the many grand-scale statement pieces. (Rue Mag)

 

3  Bodacious babes rejoice! In case you haven't heard, Reformation has a line specifically for those whose cups runneth over- C to DD, to be exact. (Reformation)  |  4  I'm crazy about summer scarves done "the Zara way." Check out this cute post for some great skinny scarf styling tips. (Who What Wear)

 

5  This guy is funny. :)

 

Plus, all of these gems...

A big thanks to Cbus Chic and Dionna Carter for including me in this feature about blogging.

That digital clock screen saver that is in every Pinterest office image ever? It can totally be yours.

Tie dye soap!

Some awesome UO sale finds.

Dying to read this.

A little functional bathroom art.

First do the verb- love, love, love!

Dress Your Nest: The Simple Life

This post is part of a new series that combines two of my favorite things ever, fashion and interiors. Fun fact: I love them both so much (and just great design in general) that I couldn't decide which one to major in during college and ended up getting a separate degree in each. So this new series is kind of an ode to the knowledge gained from my very expensive indecision. (So, see, it did have a purpose, mom and dad. ;) ) Does anyone remember that show Dress my Nest with Thom Filicia from Queer Eye for the Straight Guy? Thom would rock my world by taking a girl's favorite outfit and then turning it into a beautiful room where the chandelier would represent her favorite dangling earrings, and so on and so forth. I LOVED that show. I wish there were new episodes for me to watch over breakfast every single day of my life.

Another big inspiration for his series are the This or That posts on one of my favorite blogs, Elements of Style. They also combine fashion and interiors, showing the design similarities and current trends.

So I wanted to steal borrow from both ideas and bring them together into my own version of the fashion/interior fusion.

For the first installment I'm focusing on minimalism, which has reemerged in the past few years and become a major movement in all areas of design. This is basically a warm welcome into my dream post...
