PIECES&CHLOE X EMILYALDER

I’ve spent a lot of time searching Etsy for jewelry styles. I wasn’t sure that I would ever find something totally in-tune with my style—until I stumbled upon Di’s Etsy shop Pieces&Chloe. Her designs are simple, beautiful, stylish, and really freaking cute. I’m always getting comments on them! Using a mixture of metals and macrame, Di’s dainty bracelets are perfect by themselves for a simple statement or for layering.

BEACHFRONT IN SOUTH AFRICA

Are you ready? Today’s home feature is crazy beautiful. Even better than the 2001 feature film and my teen self LOVED that one. On a serious note, this home is a work of art.

Located on the West Coast of South Africa, the design boasts an open floor plan with clean minimalism while embracing the natural elements of the Cape. Combining my two favorite materials, stark whites with warm woods. The open space connecting the dining area, kitchen, and living space allows for family time and easy entertaining.

ROAD TRIP TO THE BAY: PART II

 

ROAD-TRIP-TO-THE-BAY-PART-II-ON-EMILYALDER-10

Having spent a fair amount of time in Northern California, I have a small knowledge of all it’s incredible spots. Yet, each time we visit I am reminded not just how much there is to see, but how much it varies. It’s impossible to see it all. At least in one trip. Knowing that we have planned to take it piece by piece. Every visit we will try to see and do something new.

ROAD TRIP TO THE BAY: PART I

ROAD-TRIP-TO-THE-BAY-PART-I-21
We continued our yearly tradition of road tripping up the coast for Spring Break last month. This is the third year all five of us have packed into the car and spent the hours driving up to San Francisco. Matt and I have both family and friends in the Bay making it important/priority trip for us.

We can’t get enough of the California coast. It is a magical drive and we are so grateful to be able to hop on the CA-1 and enjoy its beauty.
