Apartment Refresh

Another month, another apartment refresh. Seriously, if you don’t know by now how much I love switching things up in my apartment, then you must not have followed along for very long. Because, well, I live for it. Keep reading to check out the latest—and the greatest—updates.

An indigo pillowcase to replace our other navy blue one that got too sun stained.

A beautiful piece of Czech pottery to match our pair of vases.

A memento from our trip to New Mexico, a book about Georgia O’Keeffe’s lovely work.

Yet another souvenir from New Mexico: a sweet straw basket that now has a home on our magazine stack.

A pretty pink geode that’s supposed to bring soothing energy with it.

Not new perse, but our fiddle leaf fig tree has been growing like crazy recently. I’m so obsessed with how lush and full it is! (You can see how small it once was in this post.)

These Days

I cannot believe that it’s already the beginning of October! It feels like just yesterday that I was planning out my summer to-do list.

And speaking of things that crept up on me, my trip to the South is just a few days away. We’ll be gone for just about two weeks—starting in New Orleans for a wedding and then making our way to both Savannah and Charleston. I’ll be taking a break from posting here while I’m gone but will see you back here on the 17th!

The best way to start the morning: A matcha latte from Reveille.

This photo is very on brand for me.

My favorite spot in my whole apartment.

Couldn’t have asked for more perfect weather in Santa Cruz.

Falling for Scarves

I don’t know about you, but I’ve been reaching for a scarf nearly everyday—not only is it pretty chilly out, but I love how they complete an otherwise bland outfit. Typically, my scarves are tucked away in bins just like my purses, but I’ve been craving for a seasonal solution to accommodate my frequent needs.

 

Because I can’t create additional storage in my closet, I had to work with what I already have on this. I recently installed these beautiful hooks in both of my closets and while I was once using them to plan out outfits, I’ve been loving using them as a catch all for scarves at the moment. They make it so easy to hang my favorite scarves and because I have an extra set in my other closet, I can still prep my outfits in advance—win, win!

Peek into My Purse

While I’ve never really been one to tote around a “Marry Poppins” bag filled with everything under the sun, I am very careful about never leaving the house without any one key item. Because everyone’s key items are different, and because it’s so fun to see what others keep in their bags, I thought I’d share what’s in mine!

On any given day, you won’t find me without the following in my purse:

Depending where I’m headed and how uncomfortable my shoes are that day, I may also stuff some bandaids in my bag. Oh, and a Lara bar, too!

What are the items you always have in your purse? Share in the comments!

Fall Wardrobe

Every year when fall rolls around, I get uncontrollably excited for all that it marks—pumpkins, pumpkin spice lattes, boots, knits, plaid, etc. So even though it’s not yet officially fall (the first day is this Friday!), I’m getting my favorite pieces ready to go. Keep scrolling to see what kinds of creams, clogs, and corduroys I’ll be donning this season.

Psst: My Bryr clogs are one of my most prized possessions. I custom designed them and couldn’t love them any more!
