Weekend Reading

By Kate Riley June 16, 2019

It was a slow week on the blog, I needed to take some time off and focus on a few things behind the scenes. This year is flying by and I haven’t achieved certain goals that I set out to do in the beginning of the year, so I took a few days to get myself back on track. Sometimes you just need to hit the pause button and center yourself, right?

I’m feeling so much better and ready to jump back in! Find this week’s favorite links below:

Beautiful vertical stack tile installations in this Perth bungalow renovation.

The power of paint! This green vanity is so pretty.

Scandinavian life philosophies for a meaningful long life.

Everyday habits that are aging you.

How dads raise badass daughters.

Great places to camp on public land.

If my kids were grown, I’d definitely sign up for this adventure!

Wishing all the Dads a very Happy Father’s day!!


B+W Stripes for Summer

By Kate Riley June 13, 2019

We had a heat wave this week which made me super lazy, I’ve been spending afternoons in front of the whirring fan, and evenings focused on three good friends who all have birthdays this week.

Before my weekend road trip I stopped by Target “just because” (always dangerous!) and ended up buying the cutest black and white stripe cami plus a striped headband for summer. Then this morning I met up with a friend and she was wearing the best black and white stripe canvas flats and we agreed, stripes are part of summer’s uniform, don’t you think?

More favorites:

ruffled mini / black and white tote / off the shoulder top

linen shorts / espadrille  / t-shirt dress

ruffle tank / floppy hatruffled cami

jumpsuit / head wrap / striped bow slipper / casual tee
