Last week I shared with you my plans for re-vamping my dining area. Well this weekend I really went to town. I am so excited to share my finished room. I am still not 100% convinced that I like the rug but it is a good stand in. I really like my fig tree (his name is Herman) and I am hoping that he stays alive.
Here is the before pic (kinda sad): Pics taken with iPhone-not ideal.
Here are the after pics...so cute and inviting if I do say so
While I used to cringe at the thought of wearing stingray skin. I am sort of intrigued. I was at FAVOR (a great SF jewelry shop) this weekend and they have a collection of stingray skin bracelets. The artist is coming in on July 8th to do a trunk show. I think I might go for it. In the meantime, I can lust over these incredible bracelets from Kara Ross.
Sunday I stopped by my local farmers market to pick up some ripe summer fruit. I also got these beautiful flowers. I wanted to share these pretty pictures I took of them. They are so fun and organic-looking.
So the summer is notoriously known for its void of decent programming. Well this year that just isn't true. You've got the Voice (amazing), Friday Night Lights (which I have praised on here before) and then there is "Million Dollar Decorators" on Bravo. MDD is a fabulous show about the ridiculously rich and their amazing houses.
I can't really decide which designer I like best. They all have fantastic personalities.
I really like Mary's room this week. Her style is really similar to mine. Classic and glamorous.
Last week was an unintentional break from the blog. Sorry about that!! I had too much fun at the wedding and was too zapped to work on the blog. Since then, I have been recuperating by really enjoying the nice weather in SF. Here is how I see SF summer...
A lot of fashion posts on the blog this week. I just had to post this jewelry by Brook&Lyn. It is too good to not post. This idea is so unique and special. (and I am ALWAYS a sucker for natural stone accents)
One of these necklaces or bracelets could literally transform an outfit. Here are my favorites...
Well folks, it most definitely is wedding season. I only have one this summer but there will be quite a few rolling in the coming years.
I am so excited that I found this dress at Anthro because it is SO me. It is vintagey but modern at the same time. I love the color because its bright but not too bright to wear to a wedding. I am going to temper the sweetness by wearing bold heels and a shiny cuff (the Tory Burch clutch is on my wish list!).
I can't wait to attend the wedding and see my former roommate get hitched. A mini-vacay in Napa can't hurt either!
Summer is the perfect season to break out the country gear. One of my favorite shows on TV right now (and perhaps, ever) is Friday Night Lights. I love the costumes on the show--they make me want to dust off the old cowboy boots and untangle my turquoise from 5 years ago.
To unleash your inner country, I recommend taking the following 3 steps...
Watch this amazing video (amazingly cheesy that is)

As you can probably tell, I had some time this weekend to really sit down and get my thoughts out. It was wonderful! One of the things I created, which I have been thinking about for awhile was this idea of balancing sugary, sweet florals with a more masculine side.
This combination lead me to this mood board. Complete with push pinks and strong navies. Notice the hints of industrial and masculine (leather, oxford stripes and brass). I think
Perhaps it was the marathon of romantic comedies over the long weekend or the weddings/engagement parties that have popped up, but I think these images are so pretty. I don't even know these people but feel like I do through the photos (which are by amazing husband wife duo from Erin Hearts Court)
