Hello, everyone! Hope you guys had a great weekend. I landed in Colorado last Thursday and it’s been really nice to be home. Although, not all of it has been about fun and relaxation. My parents moved out of their home and are currently living in an apartment until their new house is ready. That means my room is filled with about twenty boxes of things from my childhood room that I’ve been slowly trying to go through. It certainty brings up a lot of memories, good and bad. My parents and I had a good laugh this morning when I was reading my old journals out loud. It’s funny and strange to see the things you worried about. Here are a few shots I took using Instagram over the past few days. Follow me here.
When I got off the plane on Thursday, my dad immediately took me to get pizza. We also ordered beer. Who says I’m not a rebel?
I DIED over this adorable photo of my dad and brother that I found. Wish my dad still had this tie-dye shirt.
It’s been such a treat to have honey from my Uncle Bill’s honey bees! Makes my morning tea ritual that much sweeter (hahahah!)
Stopped by one of my old favorites in Denver, Lollicup. We spent hours here in high school.
I’m continually amazed when I come home and get to see the huge sky here.
Sun splashing across this open field outside of my parents apartment. How’s that for a visual?
Found my grandfather’s dog tags from WWII. He was drafted when he was 22. Another moment that puts your life into perspective.
It’s hard to tell, but this leather jacket has skid marks across both arms. My dad was riding his motorcycle many years ago when he hit a patch of gravel and slid out into oncoming traffic. Luckily, no one was coming around the bend and this jacket saved him from being pretty scraped up.
Hi everyone! Sorry for my silence over the past two days…I always forget how much there is to do before leaving on a big trip! That’s right, I’m headed west to my favorite place on earth, Colorado. I’ll be there for three weeks and James will be meeting me next week! I cannot wait to be with my family and just kick back. Although, it’s going to be a little strange to not be in our house (more on that here.) While I was packing, I was sort of amused when I realized how much my packing habits have changed since getting involved in styling. I almost treat it like a photoshoot! I wanted to give you guys a little peek into my process, which was also a great opportunity to also practice with my new lens!
Have you guys been following my Capital Style blog posts? The last one was all about packing for travel, so if you want more information on some easy pieces to pack, be sure to click here. Anyways, I have been using my rolling rack when I pack so I can really see all the pieces I’m wanting to bring. That way I can easily hold up items next to each other to see what I can put together. The key is to stick to a lot of basics and changes things up with jewelry.
The easiest way to spruce up a simple travel wardrobe? A bright necklace! The first one is from Honey Rose & K, the second is from Forever 21. A clutch is another great travel piece because it makes an outfit more evening appropriate and it has a chain!
I pack all jewelry in small bags. Bigger necklaces go into invidual jewelry bags, bracelets that won’t get tangled can go together in a soft jewelry bag. I got this one in high school and it goes with me on every trip! A few other travel essentials include sunscreen and an extra camera disk.
Had some fun playing with a new app by A Beautiful Mess (find the app here.) I’m excited to wear my new bikini from J. Crew and I’m packing nail polish because I always end up wanting to paint my nails at some point.
Aaand I squeezed in a haircut yesterday and she cut three inches of hair! Feeling fresh and ready to go!
See you in Colorado!
Happy Friday! It’s just a few short days now until I’ll be in my beautiful home state of Colorado! I’m so excited to spend time with my family, breathe in that fresh mountain air, and soak up some serious Vitamin D from that Colorado sun. Here’s a little mishmash of things to distract you until that clock hits 5:00.
I have an obsession right now with finding the perfect pair of leather sandals. I finally decided on option number two, but they sold out right after I clicked buy! Grrr. What is it about this color of leather that’s so appealing? I want a style that isn’t necessarily trendy so that I won’t get sick of it next season. Any other suggestions would be much appreciated!
Lastly, I’m way behind the times on this, but did you see this amazing Ted talk? This guy, Ron Finley, plants gardens in South Central L.A. Such an inspiring and simple way to ignite change in a community.
Have a great weekend, everyone!
I had a little photography lesson with Lauryn (of Lauryn Byrdy Photography of course) and she let me borrow her fancy shmancy lens for a few days! James and I took these pics below. The fancy lens called for a fancy skirt and I’m loving this handmade one from Zara. Details below.
