MAGIC 8 BALL / PLEATED FASHION

magic 8 ball | pleated fashion

box pleat, knife pleat, inverted pleat, we’ll take them all! we’re seriously feeling all the pleats we’re seeing around town these days. chic, modern and sophisticated they’re showing up in jackets, skirts and dresses. they styles we’re digging today are ladylike, printed and even glamourous. we love how often they are paired with flat sandals or a pair of sneakers, such a good summer travel option when you don’t want to stick out like a tourist and want to pair a fashionable outfit with a comfortable shoe for walking.

WEEKEND AT HOME / 17

shelves | designlovefest

have extra books and knick-knacks lying around with nowhere to go? i’ve got a solution: wall shelves. they’re great for storing odds and ends while adding some flare to an empty wall. add extra storage to any room, conceal the clutter on your bathroom sink with organized shelves, store kitchen spices and glassware on shelves instead of the counter top, or clean up your desk space with a shelf of desktop necessities.

shelf styling quick tips: layer for depth, less is more, and top it off with a little plant. lots of shelf styling inspiration for every room here! i personally love the leaning wall art along a shelf look, it’s a great way to have a gallery wall you can change anytime. which are your favorite shelf solutions? let us know in the comments! erika

13 SUMMER SANDAL PICKS!

summer sandals | designlovefest

it’s sandal season and as per usual there are so many cute options for the summer months. i’m a big fan of the slide which is showing up everywhere, i love the minimal line of the one strap and also the fact that they come in so many pretty colors, feels very retro cool. i picked up a pair of pom pom flip flops on my trip to Columbia that i’ve been wearing a lot. although, you can’t purchase the same ones i have i did find a cute option from zara that’s similar in style. listed some of my other favorite styles below

this carrot avocado salad is one of my favorite things to make in the summer, it’s super easy, healthy and fresh. the lightly spiced carrots with the citrus and creaminess of the avocado is a perfect match! – joanie
