One of my biggest goals in life is to live in a house covered in bougainvillea. 🙌🏼 I love heading into San Francisco to take advantage of the cooler temps and it was a dream shooting near this bougainvillea covered home Pacific Heights. This house = major goals. 

While it's still very much summer here in the Bay Area, I'm making sure to concentrate on adding items to my wardrobe that can make the transition into fall with ease. I picked up this J.O.A miniskirt plus a few more staples from Nordstrom to do just that. Nordstrom is my one-stop shop for everything and I love how you can snag so many classic, yet on-trend staples. 

I love the muted rust tone of this skirt for both summer and fall and how easily it can be dressed up or down. The wrap silhouette is so flattering and the double ties give it such an effortless vibe. A quick size guide—I would definitely consider sizing UP, especially if you'd like it to fit a little more a-line. I initially ordered it in the xs but had to exchange it for a size small. 

I paired it with this J.Crew lightweight sweater from Nordstrom, which is is another wear now and later style. It's an easy lightweight cotton and I love the classic silhouette and dramatic sleeves. I'm wearing an xxs in this one. 

I finished with my favorite grey suede midi boots for a slightly breezy day in the city but I've also worn this skirt more casually with my favorite white tee and gladiator sandals.

What styles are taking you into the fall season?

Filling my wardrobe with classic and interchangeable basics is something I'm really trying to focus on lately. I really feel less stressed when I have pieces I consider to be timeless investments that can be worn multiple ways. I feel even better when all of those "investments" are under $100 from Nordstrom.

A basic tee is a must—obviously—but I was incredibly surprised to realize I had not one black tee in my wardrobe—until now. This Madewell tee is a game changer and I've been wearing it non-stop since I snagged it. So comfy and effortless and you can't beat the $29.50 price point.

I've been loving adding skirts to my typical jeans wardrobe and picked up this one by June & Hudson as the perfect comfy basic to dress up or down. I'm obsessed with anything olive and love how it's a tone that works well for every season. It's the perfect piece to pair with literally any color tee topped with a denim jacket (love this one from Nordstrom BP) or dress up with a silky blouse for work or date night. 

Bonus points for making skirt wearing SO comfy and I love how you can cinch and tie the waist where you want it. I can't wait to take this one into fall with comfy sweaters.

Lastly, these grey suede midi boots by Steve Madden might be my favorite pair ever. They have that casual-cool thing going on and I love them with skirts, dresses and rolled up denim for a relaxed, cool girl vibe. Snagged these in black too because they're that good.

What are your favorite basics you've added to your collection? I'd love to know!

I'm so excited to finally reveal my gallery wall with Minted! Putting the finishing touches on my new apartment has been a process and while I'm not very patient, it's also something I haven't wanted to rush. I've had bare walls in my living room for almost six months and I'm so happy to finally have the perfect backdrop for the space.

For the past few months, I had been debating exactly what I wanted to do with the wall above my sofa—one large statement piece, a few medium pieces, gallery wall, etc. Creating a gallery wall was the most exciting to me but it was also the most daunting. How do you know what sizes will fit and mix and match well? How will everything be placed together? Colors, canvas size, matting, etc—I got overwhelmed thinking about starting the task.

I've always known about Minted and have frequently perused their site and even followed some of the artists they feature. When I had the opportunity to try out their new Art Styling Service, I knew it was the perfect way to go. 

What is Minted's Art Styling Service?

This is so cool. Minted offers personal art styling where you work with an Art Stylist to curate a selection just for you and your home. Essentially, you take a quiz to help them understand your style, upload photos of your space and you're paired with a Stylist who creates custom renderings based on your personal preferences.

You actually send a photo of the wall you want to have styled and they send back photoshopped concepts with the art in place, which really helps with the visualization process and final decision making. Any other indecisive ones out there? The service starts at just $79, you give them your budget for the project and basically—it's amazing. 

I have to be honest, I'm just a little bit crazy (picky) and the idea of someone else creating something for my home made me a bit nervous. I didn't want to feel like I did not have a hand in creating my gallery wall but that wasn't the case at all! My Stylist began with renderings for two concept options based on my preferences and I was blown away by how well she nailed my style. 

My Stylist would send a rendering and was incredibly receptive to my questions and concerns and was happy to work with me to make adjustments until I was completely satisfied. It's also SO fun to get your own little pdf of renderings back and see how the artwork looks in your own space. Below is my final mockup that I approved.

One thing that also made it incredibly helpful was the hanging instructions. You give them the dimensions of your wall in the very beginning and at the end you receive instruction on how to hang everthing, which was SO helpful.

I feel so happy to finally have my little space come together and love how stress-free the process was thanks to Minted. If you have a space you're looking to have styled, I highly recommend looking into their Styling Service. Hassle and stress-free are my favorite ways to be and it's so amazing to see the final product come together in your home. 

Thanks for reading!
