Anthropologie + Eternal Optimist

I'm so so excited to share that my Eternal Optimist print is now available at Anthropologie! 

An Anthropologie collaboration is totally a dream come true - I even made one of those Oprah-inspired goal lists in college and now I can cross this one off!! Check it out on the Anthro website here - Eternal Optimist is available as a large scale framed print measuring in at a whopping 30 x 40 inches. Quite the colorful statement piece!

As part of their fall 2016 collection Anthropologie has partnered with Artfully Walls to offer a curated selection of some beautiful prints. I chose a few of my favorite pieces from the new collection as color inspiration for these art-style-decor mood boards. 

I'd like one of everything please!

Our Wedding: Invitations

Tyler and I designed our own invitations and it turned out to be one of my favorite keepsakes from our wedding!

Since it was a small wedding with under 100 guests, we decided to spend some extra time personalizing each rsvp card with our individual guests' names and corresponding attendance boxes to check. It made getting back the rsvps a breeze because there was no missing info, no confusion about bringing extra guests, and we didn't have to guess who the rsvp was coming from.  

The invitation suite also included a map card with driving directions and info on how to access our wedding website. Last but not least, an Ohio themed The Heart Of It All print just for fun! I got the cutest pictures from friends & family who framed the print, which fit in a standard 5x7" frame, or saved it on their fridge.

Our Wedding: Bridesmaid Totes

Tyler and I had a pretty small wedding with his two best friends as groomsmen and our sisters Maggie & Heather as bridesmaids. We wanted to get our bridal party something special as a thank you for all of the time, travel, & patience they put into helping us get ready for our big day, and having just two bridesmaids was perfect for me because I was able to put extra time and love into their gifts! 

I knew that I wanted give our sisters a bag filled with wedding day essentials but without it being too wedding-y you know? Things they would be able to use after the wedding that didn't scream bridesmaid! After not being able to find the style of bag I wanted (nothing too preppy or ornately monogrammed) I ended up designing these totes for the girls and for our moms to carry their makeup & accessories from home, to the hair salon, to the venue. 

I  love these getting-ready photos by Christa Kimble Photography. First we tried it this way...

...And quickly decided that HEM was less, well ... meh.

I filled the bridesmaid totes with all kinds of goodies: A drink kozy, body lotion, hair ties, flip flops, nail polish, a sequined clutch, travel sized toiletries, tissues, makeup remover, mints, & snacks (all from Target), sparkly hangers for their dresses, a colorful cotton robe, earrings to complete their outfits and a pretty Rifle Paper Co. card to say thanks for being my bridesmaid! 

The initial tote bags are available in three sizes - They make for such a fun personal and reusable way to give & wrap a gift!

Favorite Things: Kate Spade

These personalized Kate Spade New York journals struck me for their simplicity and gorgeous colors. I think they would make a prefect gift for a hostess or best friend along with a colorful bouquet, a bottle of wine or a matching nail polish. And they are only $16 with free shipping at Nordstrom... I'm definitely adding that blush E to my wishlist!

Coco Rocha's Nursery: Vogue Exclusive

It's such a thrill for me to have my Eternal Optimist painting displayed in such a beautiful room as Coco Rocha's nursery!

In collaboration with One Kings Lane, supermodel Coco Rocha designed her daughter's nursery to be comfortable, colorful, and modern - A fun departure from standard pastel nursery decor. I absolutely love how the use of contrast and bold colors create such an energizing environment for a baby (and her parents!) to enjoy for many years to come.

For more stunning pictures and nursery design details, read the entire Vogue exclusive article.

Shop the Look: Eternal Optimist prints are available for purchase in a range of sizes starting at $18

Roadtrip: San Francisco

A few pics from a fun road trip with Tyler and our friend Steve… Our mission: to see the Mary Blair exhibit at the Disney Family Museum. So with less than a month left in the exhibition, we all hopped in the car early on a Saturday morning, took off from LA and spent the next 24 hours sightseeing in San Francisco.

After being thoroughly dazzled by Mary and Walt we hit up some touristy spots like Lombard Street, and no visit to SF would feel complete for a few 90s kids without swinging by the Full House house (the theme song was stuck in my head for daaaays afterwards!) My favorite moments involved wandering around neighborhoods, taking in all of the uniquely beautiful historic architecture and enjoying the cool early-fall weather in the Presidio, which inspired this painting. Then trying to choose from the overwhelming card selection at Rare Device (I went home with this one) chased by a honey lavender + basil cone from Bi-Rite Creamery… So perfect!         
We happened to be in the city just a few days after the passing of Robin Williams and decided to spend a quiet moment taking in the growing memorial on the steps of the Mrs. Doubtfire house. Being there in person and reading the sea of loving notes at the site of the movie that I had watched so many times, it was overwhelming in an even bigger way than I'd expected. It felt like saying goodbye to a great friend.    
San Francisco, you are one of best and the friendliest. After just one day I totally understand how so many people fall in love with this city… It's warm and welcoming and feels every bit like home.  And I can't wait to go back!
