One Teaspoon Awesome Baggies

For someone who generally doesn't like bright colors, I'm surprisingly drawn to magenta bougainvillea bushes, and always have been. It's my dream to one day own a white-washed mediterranean style house with a huge bougainvillea bush framing the entryway. Which is why when we happened across this scene in Cow Hollow this past weekend, I had to stop to take some impromptu photos, even though this wasn't the outfit I had initially planned for this week's post. What can I say— when life hands you blossoming bougainvillea against a white wall... you stop and take photos.

Finally getting around to sharing this print that David got me for Christmas. I've wanted it for so long, and now that I finally have it, it's pretty high up there on my list of favorite possessions— like, save-from-a-fire status favorite. Thought it would be appropriate to photograph next to my new Acne boots. I clearly have a thing for Swedish design!

I've been a longtime fan of Velvet by Graham & Spencer (I recently wore this jacket I've had for years), so I jumped at the chance to style a few of their new pieces for spring. Black jeans are always a staple (though I usually prefer mine distressed), and I paired this clean, classic pair with other elevated basics along with a hint of fringe as my nod to this season's 70s trend. Stay tuned as I style more pieces from their collection throughout the season!
