i’m a big believer in making your environment inspire your work. we spend a lot of our time working, so it’s important to make your workplace a space that makes you feel goodit looks pretty and improves productivity. i’ve talked about decorating your desk here, but the first step of designing your dream office space is the actual desk. i built mine from IKEA, and you can also add custom legs if you want to create something more unique. here some some pretty desk ideas so you can work at a space that feels serene. erika

STYLED / 18 RUFFLES

ruffles | designlovefest

ruffles are everywhere right now. they’re on the hems of skirts and dresses, delicate sleeve details, on the bottom of pants and even on shoes. i get it, the word “ruffle” can be very polarizing. your mind automatically thinks overly girly, super sweet and feminine. but these ruffles are being used in all sorts of ways and on tons of different styles. when it’s done in a linen or a solid color it’s somehow sophisticated feminine. i like ruffles on the asymmetrical hem of a skirt paired with a super simple top and sneakers. i’m also very into the wrap dress with a little ruffle on the hem, the perfect mix of pretty and sexy. – joanie

Reformation dress ($218) – i’m crazy about this dress but unfortunately, i’m buntline won’t allow me to wear this style so for all the ladies who can, please wear this for me!
Free people swing dress ($70) – the perfect summer dress. i love swing dresses because they have so much movement and the fabric is light weight so you can still see your shape underneath. fyi: the trick with oversized dresses is to make sure the shoulders fit.
Anna Sui top  ($200) – cute, cropped and printed. love the ruffled hem and sleeve detail.
Forever 21 tiered top ($38) – this top comes in three colors and i kind of want them all. it’s a lot of fabric so wear it with something fitted on the bottom to balance it out.
Madewell wrap skirt ($88) – this mini is perfect for someone on the shorter side or if you don’t mind showing a whole lot of let. i love the sweet floral print  and that they show it tucked into a more structure top making the whole look not overly feminine.
Free People olivia dress ($260) – i love this color purple and this is great example of ruffles being used in moderation.
Loeffler Randall heel ($228) – i know, i’m always linking to Loeffler Randall shoes but i love that this is a sophisticated color (navy) with a playful ruffle.
Temperley London top ($430) – definitely the most feminine piece that i’m including but it has so many sweet details it had to be added. and picture it tucked into a pair of light, worn in, fitted jeans.
One-shoulder ruffle top ($60) – cotton/linen and crisp white. this has summer written all over it.

and a few ruffled posts we love from pinterest!

WEEKEND AT HOME / 67

splurgy-worthy kitchen accessories | designlovefest

this week i wanted to share a few favorite items i’m seeing for the kitchen. aside from the usual kitchen essentials, i always get more joy out of cooking when i have a super special piece to use with my creation like a beautiful plate to serve the food on, a gorgeous cup, or pretty silverware. i tend to get these extra special items while traveling so that i have something to bring me back to a special time in my everyday life, like my favorite mug i bought in barcelona to remind me of that trip each morning when i make my coffee. it’s one of my favorite ways to give a little boost to the daily things in life. here are a few pieces that are splurgy-worthy kitchen accessories to help brighten your everyday! erika
