thinking ahead...

Planning a quick trip to Puerto Rico in December and am already thinking of the perfect looks to pack. My style loves have been all over the map lately but I'm hooked on 70s inspired silhouettes like high-waisted menswear suiting, maxi skirts, crochet and plenty of silk. I think these looks would be great additions for a glamorous tropical vacation.

a dreamworld...

I was introduced to these images by one of my favorite blogs, Door Sixteen, and found more at Norwegian site Rom123.  I am in love with blogger, Kjersti Skjellaug's beautiful home. I know my dog would never allow our interiors to stay this white for long - so I'll have to give up the dream.

Regardless, I love the whitewashed wood flooring and the low seating in the living area.

Somehow this space maintains a cool aesthetic without feeling institutional. These are the exact interiors I picture set against a cold and rugged Norwegian environment.

Maripossa is an Australian-based jewelry company hatched from the creative mind of Lauren Besser. Lauren was kind enough to pass on some images from her latest collection, and every piece is one that I wish I had in my own jewelry box. 

Each piece takes Lauren anywhere from a few hours to a few days to make. Handwoven from a variety of materials like silver and copper, the textural element of each design is where the true beauty lies. Each handmade design comes with slight variations, ensuring that no two pieces are exactly alike. I just wish I could see the collection in person! 

The Svengali is my favorite. The distressed inspiration somehow remains feminine and fragile. This fall, I would wear this piece with a long sleeve maxi dress and the Jeffrey Campbell Lita boots!

Stay tuned! While currently stocked only in Australia, let's hope that Lauren opens up an e-commerce store for all her admirers overseas!
