I wasn’t going to do a wantlist post this week, but after finishing up my work early yesterday & living through another snowstorm outside in APRIL, I needed to think about something warmer. Spring. I don’t know where it is or when it will for sure grace us here with its presence, but I can assure you that I’ll be outside for its arrival. Heck, I’ll probably get real midwestern and wear short sleeves in sixty degree weather. But for now, I’m dreaming about dresses, skirts, and cute sandals. Cheers to a hopefully* great weekend, everyone!

The lovely owner of Parc Boutique in Minneapolis, Thao, emailed me earlier this week with a sneak peak of their new lookbook : fleur. I was instantly ( and seriously ) impressed, being a fan of plants and all. Swoon. I KNEW I had to share it with you guys today!! It features “exotic prints, sweet florals, and effortless basics.” You know, spring staples. Photographer Wing Ta of Canary Grey is the one behind the lens and they shot everything at Spruce Flowers & Home, which is where all the beautiful plants come into play. I could get lost in that sort of place. You can see the entire lookbook right here and on their website. My favorite piece, hands down, is this Baggu Backpack ( pictured below ) that I definitely have my eye on. It would be perfect for our Europe trip, right?! Thanks for curating such beautiful things, Parc.
It’s always nice to see a talented + young photographer. Anahita Paul is originally from New Dehli, but currently studying in Dunedin, New Zealand. I sure want to go there someday! But anyway, I stumbled across her work this morning and quite honestly just wanted to share it with you guys. I’m a big fan of the warm tones and subject matter throughout her work, but these ones specifically made me nostalgic for both travel and warmer weather. I would kill to wear a summer dress right now! Cheers to killer work, Anahita.
I have happily stumbled across one of the most simple shops I’ve ever seen, called COS. Their products are very basic in feel and are rarely complicated in nature. And to further their minimal flair, the colors are often muted – minus a few POPS of color here and there. Like those socks!! They are maybe the daintiest thing I’ve seen and just had to share. Let’s face it, I’ll always be a fan of simplicity. Who’s with me??
I have to say, I’ve been absolutely LOVING the new branding process I work on with my clients. Also, I’ve updated the way I do moodboards, which I’ll talk about soon, perhaps. It’s a LOT more involved than before and it’s made everything more streamlined, which is always great!!
This particular client is an interior designer and we will be taking a high end, timeless / classic, and neutral approach. A touch of vintage will also be kept in mind and applied to the brand. Can’t wait to share more!
