On My Radar: Mid June Ed.

We are officially back from vacation and back in full-on crazy work mode. With a new collection launching on Monday, this week was a fun one filled with photo shoots and lots of emails. This weekend, you'll find me squeezing some relaxation & reading (just finished this book & this book) in between even more work. Whatever your plans, enjoy the weekend! xx

The first wave of new goods will be hitting the boutique on Monday morning! Be sure to pop over to theateliershop.com on 6.22.15 to check out the launch of our "Summer in the City" collection. :)

Currently coveting: gladiator sandals

Loving these very simple and very timeless sandals (I mean, they were worn in Ancient Rome after all!) that go with everything. The perfect combination of feminine and fierce in my book. Shop a few of my favorites below ...

6 Questions with ... Rachel!

Say 'hello' to the newest intern at The Atelier, Rachel, who also happens to be my little sister! Rach is currently studying Public Relations, and her eye for photography and social media savvy has made her the perfect summer addition to the team!

Rachel (answers to @rgord)

Public relations major | PR & Marketing intern

1. My style icon is ... 

Arielle from SomethingNavy. She isn't afraid to glam up a basic outfit with an edgy piece, bright colors (which I need to learn how to rock sometime in my future), and her cute little pup, Dylan. 

2. I never leave home without ...

My wallet. If I don't buy Chik-fil-A for myself, who will?

3. If I could travel anywhere in the world it would be ...

Paris, 100%. *Hopefully sometime soon.* If ever possible I'd make like Owen Wilson and travel to Paris in the '20s to meet all the talented writers, musicians, and artists.

4. One thing I need in my summer wardrobe is ... 

A romper. Preferably this one.

5. My social media platform of choice is ...

Instagram! I love styling the perfect picture (and of course you can follow me (@rgord).

6. My favorite design in the boutique is ... 

The Bon Weekend Tote – it's great for a good weekend away or just to pack up for a day trip!

Out Of Office

This weekend, my guy and I will be boarding a plane to paradise! It's our first vacation in years, and I can't wait. I'm almost finished packing – I've loaded up on a few in-flight essentials like this book, my sketchbook & plenty of episodes of S&TC – but I just can't wait to spend time relaxing on the beach in the sunshine. Be sure to follow along over on Instagram (@MNouc & @ShopTheAtelier) where I'll be posting some snaps from the trip.

Any orders placed in The Atelier boutique will be processed and/or shipped the following week when we return, and I'll be upgrading all shipping on any orders during that time to 2-Day Priority Mail as a courtesy for the delay.

Whatever you do, I hope you all have a wonderful, relaxing almost summer weekend!
