isabel wilson spring 2015



the new isabel wilson spring 2015 collection is all kinds of dreamy! i love the interesting color scheme: grass greens, bright red and coral, with little pops of light and navy blue all shot against a dreamy pastoral backdrop. it’s making me feel like riding my bike to the park for a picnic to enjoy these warm spring days. and with all of her pieces designed and sewn in new york, i don’t think i will be able to resist picking up a pair of those grass print pants!

crescioni spring 2015

the weather is already warm here in my little corner of southern califonia, so i’ve been scramblng to get a handle on my summer style. and the lookbook for los angeles-based designer crescioni is a pretty darn good start. made using traditional craft techniques inspired by the spirit of the American west, these cool leather and brass statement jewels and accessories are perfect for pairing with breezy linen dresses andbig straw hats.

clare v. fall 2015 lookbook

i know i’m jumping ahead a little bit here, but i came across the new clare v. fall 2015 lookbook while browsing pinterest last night, and i couldn’t wait to share. i’m pretty excited about the new spring collection, especially this tennis print fannypack, but the fall collection is hitting all the right notes for me. fortunately, their bags really are timeless, and seasonless, for that matter. meaning that you really can’t go wrong.

olive early spring 2015


one of my favorite shops, the austin-based olive boutique has just released their early spring 2015 lookbook in collaboration with photographer arden wray.  ah yes, there is nothing that i love more than seeing my favorite talented people teaming up to make great things. shop owner laura uhlir has impeccable taste, so of course i want to wear all of the clothes. that blue gingham jumpsuit by atelier delphine is very high on my springtime wishlist, as is a trip to the desert to check out all of these cool southwestern shops that i’ve been falling in love with lately!

desert vintage


i am currently having a bit of a love affair with tuscon-based shop desert vintage. i first came across them a couple of months ago when they released this cool lookbook in collaboration with bon boutique. their entire aesthetic is exactly the style that i would love to wear this summer. i’ve been getting a lot more into vintage lately, and these images remind me of some of the dreamy vintage photographs in my own family archives. pictures of great aunts and grandmothers wearing beautiful vintage dresses and big sombreros.

my mom actually lives in tucson, so when i told her about my newfound love, she laughed and said she’s been a customer for years. i suppose i really should make a trip out in her direction to check out all of the vintage goods.

lauren winter spring 2015


the new lauren winter spring 2015 collection is out, and i want it all! i’ve followed lauren winter since her blogging days many years ago, so i really don’t know how i hadn’t written about her excellent designs until now. she really has a wonderful talent, and has been releasing beautiful handmade collections for quite a few seasons now. and i have to say, this latest is my favorite yet! i was first drawn in by the cool, handprinted shapes top and shorts, and immediately started counting my pennies. then, of course, i laid my eyes on the easy hourglass caftan. but of course she had to go and make the perfect jumpsuit ever. so basically, i’ll be emptying out my rainy day fund so i can walk around all summer in this dreamy collection. am i laying it on too thick? i can’t help myself! i am so ready for hot weather and cool linen clothes. you can shop the collection now.

need supply co. spring 2015


the new need supply spring 2015 lookbook has got me dreaming of a complete wardrobe overhaul. for spring, they took “a crisp, clean, and natural approach to dressing for the new season. with a focus on balancing volume and shape, each piece is allowed to stand on its own. the look is brought alive by the wearer, rather than defining them.” i love the classic styles and interesting silhouettes punctuated by statement jewelry. and i have been lusting after that current/elliot quilted denim coat since last year. i thought it had gotten away from me, but seeing it pop up this spring is making me think that perhaps it’s meant to be! you can shop the entire collection here.

heinui spring 2015

the new heinui spring 2015 look book is out, and i’m falling all over myself over here. last season, i was lucky enough to get my hands on one of her wrap dresses, and it quickly became a favorite. i was so impressed by the quality and workmanship, and the fit was just perfect. it is not every day that you find such a combination, so you’d better believe that i took note!

this season, i’m especially loving the whimsical blue prints and playful tropical motif! a perfect resort feel, but in practical and elegant designs that can be worn day to day. i think my favorite piece is that stunning kimono-style wrap dress up top with the all over water babe print. i want to wear it right now with a straw hat and sandals!

ymc spring 2015


oh man, i am having a bit of a love affair with the new ymc spring 2015 collection. it’s simple and sophisticated with nautical vibes, some dressier pieces mixed in with comfy loungewear. it’s the kind of wearable clothes that are realistic in just about any wardrobe. the types of pieces you wear to death. and i certainly wouldn’t expect anything less from this super cool british brand.

atelier delphine spring 2015

i came across the new atelier delphine spring 2015 collection the other day while browsing the olive austin instagram account. shop owner laura ullrich has the most impeccable taste, so of course she has introduced me to yet another awesome designer. the brand has been around since 2011 after designer yuka izutsu decided to create romantic loungewear for the modern woman. her latest collection is right down my alley with lots of cool gingham pieces and some really standout marbled prints mixed with denim and chambray for a very relaxed yet sophisticated vibe. all of the fabrics are imported from japan with each piece constructed in the usa with a focus on meticulous workmanship. now to figure out which piece is my favorite!
