Some pretty little pieces that are on sale now from Creatures of  Comfort.  Creatures of Comfort is a boutique in New York that also has an in-house label.  I love the simple silhouettes and pretty fabrics, plus everything from the Creatures of Comfort label is made in New York.  I particularly love the wrap dress pictured below in black since it can be worn open as a jacket, as well.  You can shop the Creatures of Comfort sale here, but be sure to look at the entire sale section because I just found these Rachel Comey boots for 50% off…

always trust your gut

When I first saw these pants at Sloane Boutique in Cincinnati, I wasn’t so sure I should buy them.  Yes, I loved them, but they were going to be a bold choice.   So bold that I wasn’t so sure I would be able to wear them much.  Oh, how wrong I was.  I bought them, hemmed them to hit ankle-length and they’ve become a summer staple.  I love them on a hot day with flat sandals (like the ones below) and a tank.  I love them dressed up with a pair of mules.  I think they’ll translate nicely into fall with a leather jacket and beanie.  What’s the lesson in all of this?  Always trust your gut.

You might remember a few weeks ago when I posted about feeling drained from all of the information we get on social media.  If you don’t remember, you can read that post here.  So, for today’s life through Instagram post, I wanted to go back to explaining more about the photos rather than just posting them by themselves.  That way, you get the back story and don’t just see a pretty image.  The captions for each image are at the bottom of this post!

1.  Playing with some new packaging ideas for Eli & Barry.  I loved the idea of incorporating some words from the children’s book, Goodnight Moon, for the Phases Collection.

2.  Winston might look like he’s smiling in this picture, but he’s not an easy dog to walk.  He’s kind of a lazy bum and gets hot really easily.  We’re working on it.

3.  You might remember that I said that I was trying my hand at metalsmithing.  I think it would be cool to eventually incorporate handmade elements into Eli & Barry.  Plus, I love the mess.

4.  Still one of my favorite summer dresses.  You can read the full blog post with details on the outfit here.

5.  I love when Winston lays like this.  This was the day after he ate raisins, which are poisonous to dogs.  Luckily, he bounced back like a champ.

6.  Wearing all white while picking out a pair of glasses courtesy of SEE Eyewear.  Can’t wait to show you all which ones I got!

7.  On my way to Colorado last week.  I was really impressed with myself because I packed everything I needed in a carry-on.  This is amazing because I’m a notorious over-packer.

8.  New Eli & Barry earrings off to Sloane Boutique in Cincinnati.

9.  My sweet grandmother, Penny, sporting my Ray-Bans.  She’s too cool.

10.  The Eli & Barry display case at Objects for the Home in Columbus.

11.  The day after we got back from Colorado.  I felt like I had been hit by a bus, so it was definitely a lazy Saturday.  Although, to be fair, every Saturday is a lazy Saturday for me.

12.  My lovely business cards designed by the ever talented, Joanna Waterfall of Waterfall Creative.

Happy Tuesday!

Hello everyone!  I am finally back from my insane week of work in my beautiful home state of Colorado.  I feel a bit off this morning…probably because my flight came in at 1:00am.  Oy!  I’m looking forward to getting a mani/pedi with my friend, Chelsea, today and relaxing the rest of the weekend!  Have you guys heard of Loft’s new spinoff clothing line called Lou & Grey?  It’s made up of great silhouettes, beautiful basics, and lovely prints all at an amazing price point.  What do you guys think?  Oh, and happy Friday!

busy bee

Well, hello there, loyal readers!  I know what you’re thinking…where have I been?  Honestly, I’ve been really busy with my day job and, when I’m not working, I’ve been trying to get out in the world and enjoy the gorgeous weather we’ve been experiencing.  Ever notice that I talk about the weather a lot here?  Anyways, I apologize for my silence, but work will slow down soon and I’ll be back to my regular posting schedule.  I’m actually pretty excited because I get to head home to Colorado tomorrow!  I have a shoot in Boulder next week for work, but I’m flying out a few days early to spend some time with my parents.  I only wish I could bring James and Winston along.  I’m really impressed with myself in terms of packing because I’m usually terrible at it, but I’ve really pared down what I’m bringing this time.  I put together this Pinterest board of outfits that I thought would make great travel looks, which helped while I packed.  This outfit via Emerson Fry really inspired me while packing, as well.  I’m thinking about doing Instagram posts next week showing each outfit since I’m only using a few pieces to style a bunch of different looks.

I also have some fun Eli & Barry updates for you!  Greater Than earrings and The Phases Collection have been stocked at Sloane Boutique in Cincinnati.  This weekend you’ll be able to head to Objects for the Home in Columbus and shop both Eli & Barry collections.  It feels so great to have the support of local boutiques.  When I approached Chelsea, co-owner at Objects for the Home and my good buddy, about wanting to start a jewelry line, she was pretty quick to say that she’d love to carry it.  It really gave me the confidence to move forward with this little jewelry line.  I’ve been busy coming up with more ideas for future designs, which will be released throughout the next six months.  Can’t wait to share those designs with you guys.

I worked on some new packaging ideas (seen above) specifically for Objects for the Home.  I really wanted to incorporate the words from the children’s book Goodnight Moon for The Phases Collection.

I hope you guys have a great week and be sure to follow me on Instagram for more consistent updates over the next week and a half.
