BALLERINA VIBES

ballerina vibes | designlovefest

i’ve been drawn lately to more feminine style, in my mind it feels like ballerina style, whatever that means. soft colors, slouchy sweaters, fitted body suits layered under slip dresses, delicate flats, hair in a top knot with a few pieces falling down. i don’t mean the style of the 50’s that is often seen as uber feminine with fitted waists and big skirts. this version is comfortable and simple. i was probably inspired after reading the misty copeland home feature in architectural digest, she’s such a beauty and incredibly talented, it was a treat to see inside her home. – joanie p.s. all images are linked with credit to the source

i’m very much into the new lunya collection they launched. they are a local southern california brand that makes such glamours and beautiful lounge wear. several of their pieces are on my wish list, they’d make a perfect gift for a new mom or lady in your life who needs something pretty to wear at home.

STUDIO MAKEOVER!

we have a little studio off of our patio that we have started the design makeover process on! right now it’s used as mostly storage and we’re excited that it’s going to become a cozy office/70’s den hangout vibe. we are working with spaulding company on the vision and execution and hope to have it done by the end of the year! i think we are going to be adding carpet, wood paneling, and lots of fun details. now that we both work at home, it’s a good time to make all of our space usable and comfortable to be in. I will keep you updated with the progress!! xx bri

LACAUSA DISCOUNT CODE!

our friends at lacausa gave us a special 30% off discount code to share with y’all (it’s good sitewide, code is DESIGNLOVE30). they are are go-to for every day basics (they make the best tanks and tees) and have incredible quality and style. they are female founded and committed to ethical manufacturing, fair wages, care for the environment and giving back to organizations they believe in. these days, it’s more important than ever to care about where we spend our hard earned money, and they are a great company to support!

i live in my alma slip dress during the summer, i normally wear a small but got mine in a medium, i love the oversized lounge-y look of it and it looks great with a sweater over top for the cooler days like how i’m wearing it below. they have a fun instagram too if you want to follow along with them there.

bri has been wearing this tie dye t-shirt. order your normal size, it’s cut to be oversized all ready! this henley fits exactly how you’d want it to fit, and is so comfy. i wear it with a fitted pair of denim. i’m always on the hunt for ribbed pieces, and i love this tank, especially in this pink hue. and their maya tank is a classic wear with anything (including a bra if needed!) option. bri and i both have the lola trousers in the panna cotta color (i also love the green color!) and they are the best.  they run true to size, i’m wearing a size 4 in the photo below. it’s really hard to find pleated pants that still feel modern and not like a school uniform and these do the trick.

HILMA AF KLINT

hilma af klint was SUCH an amazing artist! I love her use of color and how she ties together science, spirituality, and art. she is actually one of the original abstract artists that doesn’t get the credit she deserved. (the piece above was from 1907!) we just watched her documentary a few nights ago and now I love her even more! what a brave woman who did exactly what her heart told her to.

this was the documentary that we rented!

so inspired by her! aren’t you?!
