Restructuring my Wardrobe

simple is the new black, fashionlush, structured fashion

With everyone still in Coachella mode, this may be a hard concept to grasp. Floral prints, flowy dresses, boho everything… I am getting over it.

My life & home is very structured/simplistic, & that’s the direction my closet is going too.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not tossing all of my hippy-chic faves, but I did get rid of quite a few (you can shop all my giveaways here- more pieces coming soon!). I have come to the realization that I need to stop trying so hard to love color just cause everyone else does, & accept the fact that I look best in neutrals.

It’s all about what works on you, but as I get older… my style is becoming more refined & I am digging it.

These days I am working on channeling my inner Karl Lagerfeld, MK&A, & Ivania Carpio– starting w/ the below pieces. Lushing big time.

4 // Faux Croc Trapeze Bag:: Crossbody, black, croc. Obsessed.

5 // New Look Tailored Blazer:: Peach- for when I feel I need a teeny, subtle touch of color.

6 // Jeffrey Campbell Wesley Oxfords:: That rounded point is killing it.

Gettin’ Crafty in the Garden

diy, garden marker, unicorn

When I first laid eyes on my brand new pretty garden (read more about that story here), before we even painted it/ filled it with soil/ planted my babies, I began brainstorming what kind of DIY plant markers I could craft up.

I was digging deep, really trying hard to channel my inner Martha Stewart. I couldn’t think of anything. The creative juices were just not flowing on this one. Then, like most of my good ideas, it came to be right before I was about to doze off (P.S. iPhone voice-notes are great for moments like these). I remembered that a couple months back I had purchased about 50 mini terracotta pots. I ended up using a handful for a DIY event, but per usual– I overbought & had tons of leftovers.

They couldn’t have been more perfect for this project. Throw in some glitter & BOOM, you’ve got cutest garden markers to ever live. Right?! xx, E

++ Start off by painting the rim of your mini pots w/ glue & dip them in your glitter. Let dry. ++

++ Next, spray paint your sticks gold (toothpicks work great for this!). Then cut your little banners out of white poster board ++

++ write the names of your veggies/herbs/fruit. I am no artist, but if you can draw better than me- get weird. Glue the banners to the sticks. ++

++ I had these gold unicorns laying around from another project, so I placed them around the garden to give my plants some magical vibes. ++
