Weekend Reading

Happy Friday! I don't know about you, but I'm so ready for the weekend! Tonight I'm having dinner at a new-to-me restaurant (thanks, Restaurant Week!) to celebrate a friend's birthday, and tomorrow one of my best friends is in town. A wine & girl talk kind of weekend is exactly what I need to get me through this freezing, snowy weather. Is it spring yet?

A few things that I loved from around the web this week ...

1. I just launched a new website/portfolio for local stylist, Devon Darrow. Devon was a dream client and it was so much fun bringing her vision to life. I really loved creating the logo (ft. my hand lettering) and building a minimalist, timeless, and stylish site around it to feature Devon's lovely work. I generally don't take on site design projects, but I actually really enjoyed the process, so maybe if you're in the market, let me know! ;)   See the full site here >>

2. Anxious? Here are 7 surprising things that can help you stop worrying.

3. What should your signature cocktail be? I got Pear-Sage Champagne cocktail ... yum!

3. All the gorgeous embroidery and Mexican-inspired tips on The Edit (featuring Frida Kahlo) has me dreaming of jetting off to Mexico for a warm and sunny vacation.

4. Speaking of travel, Philly made the New York Times' list of 52 places to go in 2015. Which makes me think I need to create a mini guide à la the D.C. & Boston guides ...

5. I wish it was warmer so I could wear this dress & this scalloped bikini.

6. Living room perfection (minus those black chairs).

7. I have some things that I'm really, really excited about launching very soon in the boutique, so make sure you're following along on Instagram & Facebook for the announcements! Let's just say February will be a golden month. :)

 

Have a great weekend! xo

Get Her Look: Vogue Editor Cynthia Smith in Nantucket

These freezing, sunless winter days have me wishing for summer, so naturally I've started planning out my warm weather wardrobe to help me make it through. I found this Vogue piece featuring editor Cynthia Smith a little while back, but I absolutely love Cynthia's classic with a twist style – the girl can rock a trench coat and denim cutoffs and her delicate jewelry game (#layeredperfection) is on-point. Here's how to steal her insanely chic travel look ...

2015, This is Your Year

Well hello there, 2015. It just wouldn't be a new year if I didn't put together one of my favorite "This is Your Year" printables (see 2014's here and 2013's here) ... so here it goes! This year, my focus is on taking action. More doing, less thinking about doing. I'm focusing on professional growth (lots of things in the works in The Atelier boutique & product line), spending more quality time doing new things with people I love, traveling more, actively being present, and just putting my goals and dreams into action.

One of my specific professional goals in 2015 is to try "slow blogging." Instead of feeling guilty and scrambling to get posts together when I don't have the time or when I'm not particularly inspired, I'm going to try to post once a week, on Fridays. Having that little bit of structure and freedom has me excited to make more time for this space that I love so much. So be sure to pop over on Fridays, add The Atelier to your feed reader, or sign up to have emails delivered directly to your inbox. P.S. I will pop in occasionally to tell you what's new in the boutique ... so many good things coming soon!


I'd love to know – did you make resolutions or specific goals this year? What's inspiring you?
