I adore pretty prints, artsy designs, and all things stationary- notepads, agenda books, calendar, thank you notes, and so on. Technology is amazing of course, but there is something about a handwritten note and a real agenda book that is irreplaceable and timeless. I discovered Rifle Paper Co. about two years ago, and I immediately fell in love with their aesthetic. They did a fashion collaboration a few seasons back with Paper Crown and the dresses were sold at Anthropologie. The dresses were nothing short of beautiful and the prints designed by Rifle Paper had their signature artistic- whimsical, feminine, and fun. I remember thinking how cool it was for Rifle Paper, Paper Crown, and Anthropologie to team in such a creative way in order to make the dresses come to life and become available to customers. Rifle Paper’s products are truly individual works of art. The herb garden wall calendar that they sent me is so amazing- each page looks as though it was hand painted with such care and attention to detail. Lo and I were so excited to connect with Rifle Paper Co. and are extremely grateful for the goodies that they sent us. Above are my three favorites and below are links to more pretty things.
happy monday!! xo lo + melis
Today we are kicking off a four part fall fashion series about textures that take over the style world during the fall season. The first material that we are loving on is suede. It’s such a luxe, rich, and versatile material that can elevate a look or help keep things casual. One of my most favorite items in my wardrobe is a Levi’s brown suede jacket that my parents gave to me for Christmas a few years ago. It has continued to be my most treasured fashion item- that piece that I am especially thankful for and causes me to feel all giddy whenever I put it on. I wear it as much as possible during the fall and winter and then dream about it during the spring and summer. It’s one of those things that I put on and feel 100% myself, confident, and stylish in an effortless, easy way. In my book, that is the goal when it comes to clothing purchases and personal style- that is what makes getting dressed and putting outfits together so fun!
The design combination of fringe + suede (see the top row of the collage) makes for a totally cool, irresistible, bohemian vibe. That vest, jacket, and poncho will all look so great paired with a simple white (or black) tee plus a pair of well-loved jeans. Those three items have a handcrafted, artisanal look that is effortlessly fashionable when paired with denim and a tee. A suede choker + platform sneaks or slip-on mules will be favorite accessories this season and in constant rotation. I always stick to neutrals when it comes to shoes because I can wear them again and again, with so many different looks.
Be sure to come back next week for when we chat cashmere. xo

There is nothing better than athletic wear that can go from lounging to the gym and then to street for errands, grabbing coffee, or going to lunch. These staples from Nordstrom are so cute, comfortable, cool, and completely versatile.
Hey guys! Last week Melis shared her six summer loves from her wardrobe and today it’s my turn to do the same – hooray! The above collage makes me laugh (as does Melis’ collage) because it is so obvious that we love our neutrals. I am constantly reaching for this black tote, that belt, and a great pair of denim. The laid-back, relaxed, easy feel of a neutral color palette is my favorite- especially for summer when the vibe is carefree and slower than another time of the year.
