Next week Arash and I are headed to Maui to shoot a wedding and enjoy the beach life with some pretty amazing friends. I can’t wait! It will be so nice to take a break from the computer and enjoy some SUN.

Been working on a new design project and have been swimming in tons of Wes Anderson’s work as a result. I can’t get enough of it! I think my recent engagement session with Hanniel and Chris was what inspired me even more than ever. I love Wes Anderson’s compositions, color and overall aesthetic. Thought I’d share a mash up of images highlighting just some of the hundreds of stills that I’ve been sorting through. Enjoy and happy weekend!!

Summer weather has brought out the beach-babe in me, actually more like pool-babe, but still, I am loving this warm weather! I thought I’d pull together some summer inspired items that I’ve been eyeing myself. Any chance I can get to take a break and enjoy some chill time, I most certainly will! Whether you’re spending the summer days poolside, picnicking at the park or laying on a sandy beach, why not have a little inspiration?
01 Such a bright and flattering kelly green popover! // 02 Mustard yellow is my favorite color and what better way to show it off than a bike ride. // 03 Jean cut offs, do I dare? Probably need to do more Pilates first, LOL. // 04 Wooden bangle bracelet. // 05 A large sun hat is a must by the beach this summer. // 06 A light beach bag that can easily be dressed up or down. // 07 Retro Print. // 08 Vintage swimsuit. // 09 Sam Edelman sandals with a splash of animal print.
In honor of Father’s Day this weekend, I thought I’d throw together a manly mash up inspired by and for the dad’s in our lives. Someday, soon hopefully, we’ll be able to celebrate Arash as a dad (not yet though!) and in the meantime, I can dream up some fun stuff to get him, can’t I? Hope all you dad’s out there have a Happy Father’s Day!

I’m always on the lookout for cute flats. I think I may have an obsession with them because if you look at my closet you’ll find all different colors and textures. When they look this cute, how can you resist? I wear them when I shoot weddings too and sometimes it adds that perfect pop of color without being super in your face. You can show so much personality trough a little pair of ballerina flats, right?!
1 Love the bright colors! // 2 Orange and creme? Where do I sign? // 3 Why hello, there! // 4 Cutwork detailing, so flattering for summer. // 5 So much personality in one shoe, love it. // 6 Soft hues are super classy. // 7 Summer is the perfect time to wear woven flats. // 8 Feminine yet still has a edge to it. I think these are a must for me.
In honor of the first day of June, I thought I’d pull together some Pinterest picks that speak to how I feel right about now. I’m so inspired by all the gorgeous sun outside, I can’t wait for this summer to unfold! Any fun plans this summer?

Been eating tons of fruits lately… // 3 A perfect accessory to any outfit. // 4 Sea foam green clutch, must have! // 5 Take this summer and run with it! // 6 “Got my ray bans on and I’m feelin’ hell cool tonight” — Rihanna // 7 So boho, so summer chic.
