Last summer Sam and I shot a beautiful flower filled editorial with a gorgeous Yumi Kim dress. Yumi and  her team saw the post and loved it. After they reached out to thank us for the post we started brainstorming on a way we could collaborate together.  Fast forward to today and we are in the final stages of planing our summer pop up shop this Saturday the 20th. Because Yumi Kim has some of the most breathtaking floral prints, and I absolutely love flowers, it only seemed natural that theme of the pop up would be centered around flowers. The event will take place at Platform in Culver City where you will be able to shop all of the spring and summer collections while surrounded by beautiful blooms and an inspiring atmosphere. I will be hosting the event as well as creating custom floral arrangements for anyone who purchases something pretty from Yumi Kim.  Even if you’re not in the mood to shop, stop by to check out BabyBlue (she’ll be there in all her van glory), snap some pics, and say hello.

In light of our upcoming event, I decided to shoot an editorial inspired by my dream of turning BabyBlue into a mobile flower shop. I imagine driving the coastline, stopping to sell flowers, swimming in the ocean, and changing from one lovely frock into another.

The last time I wore this jumpsuit was in June on the very first night of my very first visit to Paris with Sam. We were staying at the utterly magnificent Mandarin Oriental Paris, where we were treated to a sunset cocktail hour and one of the best meals I have ever had the pleasure of indulging in. The entire trip was magical, but nothing compares to that very first night.  I don’t think I will ever part ways with this jumpsuit. Every time I even look at it I am flooded with the memories of our trip.

It’s extraordinary how many of my memories are tied up with the clothing I wore at the time. Whenever Sam brings up a past trip or experience I can vividly remember everything I wore down to the accessories. It’s pretty crazy considering I have the worst memory. I can barely remember my wedding date, let alone birthdays, but inexplicably I remember every outfit I have ever posted on this blog and exactly what I did while wearing each outfit. To me this is the true power of fashion and why I continue sharing my personal style on this blog.

If you love fashion and personal style as much as I do, then I urge you to download the Trove app. It’s hands down the best way to shop and discover outfits from your favorite bloggers.

Summer time is fast approaching and that means weddings, late brunches and early dinners with friends that carry on into the night. I love having that summer staple dress that can be worn to any or all of these activities. Bonus points if it can transition from day to night.

Happy Friday, I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

I’m not usually an overly enthusiastic champion of overalls, but this embroidered pair from Needle and Thread  is nudging me to change my mind. Makes me wish I had a fancy brunch or a beachfront wedding to attend.

I’m currently getting dressed by re-styling the pieces that I’ve decided to keep after my closet purge. It’s been a good exercise in reminding myself how to find inspiration in a way that doesn’t involve acquiring more stuff. This is a major focus for Sam and I at the moment. We want to simplify our life by clearing out things that clutter our home and our lives, so we can spend more time and money on experiences rather than things. We also have a dream of taking a few extended road trips with @BabyBlueWesty. This requires a drastic scale down of the items we rely on in our daily lives. It’s a new challenge, but one that we’re excited to take on.
