Many people ask me where I shop and what my favorite brands are. When I think about the the brands I actually buy and don't just covet, a current favorite is Show Me Your Mumu. I love their stuff and I love it even more when it's on sale! Anyone who know me knows I love a good sale and I love a good Mumu. Lucky for all of us they started their Black Friday sale early, so we don't have to wait until Friday to shop select items at 40% off! Sale is on now through Sunday 11/27, use code MUMUSALE40. Of course I wouldn't share this great sale info and not share a round up of my favorites...here you go!
Since the Holidays are upon is, I thought it would be the perfect time to share some of my current and favorite table decor. This year instead of getting carried away with Autumnal or Holiday themed tablescapes, I am keeping it simple. The table setting pieces I have collected over the last few years tend to be classic and slightly coastal, with lots of whites and blues. Ever since we put in our copper light fixture over our dining room table, I have started to collect pieces with copper elements. They add a little bit of glamour and tie the table together! We are hosting our first Thanksgiving in our home, and I can't wait to pull out these cute copper napkin rings and this copper trimmed wine coaster I bought for this season's gatherings! When all else fails the go to items I use to dress up a table are pretty napkins, fresh flowers, and our crystal glassware!
Sometimes sneakers and sweatshirts are the only way to go. I am not sure if my recent affinity for extra causal is due to moving out of the city, but I always want to throw on jeans, a sweatshirt like top, and sneaks. I have taken it upon myself to prove that super casual can still be cute, cool, and creative! For a day exploring Tucson during our quick weekend in the desert, my mantra was no different. I have to say if you love a comfortable long top, the Tunic Sweatshirt from Everlane is amazing. It is soft, the perfect slightly oversized fit, and comes in six colors. I have two and seriously wear them all of the time!
We spent some of our time running into all of the wonderful wall art murals that have popped up throughout the city. We obviously had to stop and take photos in front of this awesome mosaic I am Tucson wall. If you follow me on Instagram, you probably saw we ran into a few other great ones (see Here and Here).
It has been a wonderful awards season on the red carpet. I was impressed by all of the risk takers. Some looked amazing and some not so amazing. I constantly found myself questioning, do I love this or do I hate this? Regardless, all of the risks made this red carpet much more exciting than the rest. I have been waiting for this! There were some bright and beautiful colors, some lovely expecting mamas, and a few really dapper dudes. I picked my top ten ladies and then threw in a few of the best dressed gentlemen as an added bonus! Enjoy!
We spent a weekend in the desert and I was not prepared for the heat. I knew it was going to be sunny and pushing eighty degrees, but being so used to SF weather I didn't really process. As a last minute outfit to feel semi appropriate in the warm weather, I pulled out a long tunic tank I was originally going to layer with a light jacket and wore alone over ripped jeans. Dressed up the otherwise super casual get up with a big necklace and my Everlane loafers. I had been eyeing these shoes for a while and they are now my go to favorites. They make every look a little more classic and well dressed.
For a Saturday in Seattle I went true weekend casual in a sweatshirt top, skinny jeans, and sneakers. When keeping it casual I always like to keep it cool. I find myself almost exclusively pairing my leather jacket with some sort of a sweatshirt. And, embarrassingly I get excited for the weekend so I can throw on a pair of fun sneakers!
I realize this red carpet round up is coming a day late. I was traveling this weekend but made sure to re-cap my favorites from the red carpet as soon as I returned. I haven't even been able to watch the show yet, but did get enough tidbits to know that the adorable Jacob Tremblay stole the show...again. I couldn't help but add him to my round up and if you don't know who or what I am talking about see Here, Here and Here!
Since I haven't watched the full red carpet special or the show, I haven't quite wrapped my head around any overwhelming trends. There were quite a few ladies looking beautiful in blue, many of them making my top ten! Otherwise it seemed like a diverse array of dresses, colors, and details. Not one overwhelming trend but a few different ones, like florals, allover sequins, slim column dresses, and unexpected trims (I am looking at you Brie Larson)!
