Blush and Blues

My blog has taken the back burner to moving, home renovations and immersing myself in work here in Austin. I am trying to get back to more frequent posts... along with my redesign!

I love the short sleeves on the chambray jumpsuit and I already placed an order on the button up sleep set!

We are currently adjusting to the Texas weather. So far it's been a mix of heat, humidity and thunderstorms. This breezy board of blush and blues is perfect for Austin. Plus, everything is up to 40% off with the code 24hours!

Desert Vibes

Tomorrow is my birthday and we're headed to Palm Springs for a fun filled weekend getaway.
If I envision myself in this hammock oasis long enough, it might actually come true. In the meantime, I pulled together some desert vibe boho pieces that would be perfect in Palm Springs.
Loving the subtly of the boho in the tassel scarf and that cactus iphone case is too cute. I got the pret-a-powder for Christmas and finally found it unpacking a box... Can't wait to try it out!

We haven't been to Palm Springs in so long... so if you have any recommendations for us, I'd love to know your favorite spots!

Hope you have a fun St Patty's Day!

Home sweet home in Austin

It's been an exciting few months over here!
After moving to Austin in September, not only did we decide to stay long term, we sold our home in the Bay Area, packed up our world again and are calling Austin home.
This weekend we moved into our new house and after 3 other temporary places in the past six months, we are so happy to finally get settled.

We're under a bit of construction, but I can't wait to share more pictures soon!
On the current to do list:
• Go shopping for dining room chairs, nightstands and a coffee table. Any suggestions?
• Choosing some new house numbers and new porch mounted mailbox
• Unpacking and deciding where everything goes in this new kitchen (seen behind us in the IG)

Shopbop Sale: under $100 picks

The Shopbop Spring Sale is here! I've picked my favorite under $100 pieces that I'm currently coveting for spring.
I recently purchased a pair of A Gold E boyfriend jeans, but I am loving this budget friendly pair too. Just the right amount of distressing and I love the light wash for spring. This fun swing shirt would look so cute on top, paired with the suede scalloped flats (leather pair here).

I've been wanting a classic, grown up pj set for awhile now and this set is under $80, plus the additional percent off with the Shopbop Sale.

And lastly, this pom pom tote bag and pink water bottle would be perfect for my upcoming trip to Palm Springs!

News + Updates

Happy Friday! I wanted to drop in to share some recent news, updates and highlights happening around here.
The bird and I are officially home owners again and permanent residents of Austin. So happy to call this beauty home! Now that closing is almost complete, I thought it was safe to share the news. So excited to make some minor changes, move in our furniture and make it our home.

I am also finally working on a redesign for my blog, so you will see some much needed changes around here. Thanks to Atelier21 for all your hardwork!

We just booked flights and an Airbnb in Palm Springs for my birthday next month! It's been so long since I've been and I would love any of your suggestions, especially restaurants for a fun night out!

Valentine's Day weekend

I hope you had a nice, long Valentine's Day weekend!

The bird and I were pretty mellow, but went on a beautiful hike along the Barton Springs greenbelt.
I picked out all the pink attire pieces I could find and the bird got in the spirit too!
Lululemon zip up (similar here & here) // Anthropologie vest (floral version here or similar & on sale here)

I also managed to whip up some Valentine's dessert, like I mentioned on Friday.
These dipped Oreos were delicious and the perfect treat after our hike.

3 Easy Valentine's Day Desserts

We don't have plans for Valentine's Day, but I have been wanting to make a yummy dessert to surprise the bird with.

Here are 3 easy, last minute ideas if you're wanting to do the same:

I love making candy bark and this ooey gooey salty and sweet popcorn mix sounds delish!

And in case you missed it, how gorgeous was this Whitney Port and Lulu & Georgia Galentine's Day collaboration featured on Glitter Guide?

What are your plans this weekend?

Happy Valentine's Day!
