Emily Ratajkowski Launches Swimwear Label

For the first time ever, I’ve been thinking about swimsuit season in November. I have a good reason though. I’m headed to Palm Springs for New Year’s Eve this year – my first ever New Year’s Eve trip away from Seattle and I haven’t purchased a new swimsuit since 2016. I’ve been hitting up all my favorites including Beach Riot, but now it looks like I need to keep an eye on Emily Ratajkowski’s new swimsuit line – Inamorata Swim. Currently there are a few photos of inspo on the feed, but there are also a couple of her modeling what looks to be a part of her own line – a polka dotted one-piece (above) and an off-the-shoulder bikini.

It sounds like all will be revealed this week and we can’t wait to see the rest!

Let’s Taco ’bout It

Beanie – Aritzia / T-shirt – Urban Outfitters / Duster – Azalea / Denim – Citizens of Humanity / Heels – Vince Camuto

Up until this day, I had never really thought of putting all of these items together. This combination of a long duster with the high-waisted jeans and the addition of heels fascinated me. It was casual with a side of fancy and I didn’t hate it. My company recently moved offices and while I was SO ready to move, there were a lot of gems in our old spot that I probably will miss. One of those things is our various lunch outings. On this particular day, we decided to walk up the street to a food truck serving Mexican food that we had heard great things about. I can still remember my chicken quesadilla with extra guac pretty vividly!

Nike’s Air Presto Ultra SI Black

I could be very happy with an all-black sneaker, but when the soles look like the freakin’ galaxy, oh my goodness. I love that these soles also match the laces which kind of pulls everything together for one cohesive look. Though they seem heavy in the photograph, these are actually light-weight and come with mesh, TPU, and water resistant panels to help keep these in great condition.

These are currently being sold on Feature for $135 USD.

Nordstrom’s 27/7 Curbside Pickup for the Holidays

Holiday shopping with Nordstrom just got a little bit easier! This holiday season, the retailer is offering up 24/7 curbside pickup at select stores for more convenience. We all know how much of a pain it is to go shopping during the holidays – to deal with crowds and the parking. Personally, I’d be worried about going in stores for fear of buying more than I had intended!

10 Nordstrom locations are offering this feature up in the week leading up to Christmas. How does it work?

Nordstrom customers who have placed a Buy Online & Pickup In-Store order can call or text their respective store’s Curbside Pickup phone number just 10 minutes before arriving, at which point a Nordstrom employee will meet customers with their merchandise.

I repeat. This is 24/7.

The retailer’s 24/7 Curbside Pickup will run from Dec. 16-24 at the following Nordstrom locations: Nordstrom Downtown Seattle (Seattle, WA), Nordstrom Bellevue Square (Bellevue, WA), Nordstrom Michigan Avenue (Chicago, IL), Nordstrom Oakbrook Center (Oak Brook, IL), Nordstrom NorthPark Center (Dallas, TX), Nordstrom Tysons Corner Center (Mclean, VA), Nordstrom The Westchester (White Plains, NY), Nordstrom South Coast Plaza (Costa Mesa, CA), Nordstrom Fashion Valley (San Diego, CA) and Nordstrom Valley Fair (San Jose, CA).

Hold On To Your Hat

Hat – Nordstrom / Sweater – Madewell / Denim – Levi’s / Shoes – Vince Camuto

Doesn’t this outfit look like it belongs in a modern day western? White with black (or in this case dark grey for the denim) is my favorite color combo because of how versatile it is. I definitely didn’t need the hat for this occasion, but sometimes when you’re feeling a little too plain, it helps to add something extra. Jimmy and I took some great shots back when we were in our old neighborhood. I’ll miss all the brick!

Aesop in Chelsea, London

If you’ve ever stepped into an Aesop location, then you know that it is quite possibly one of the most beautifully designed storefronts in the retail world. I always remember the different locations I’ve been to – Boston, San Francisco, Seattle, San Jose – each never looking exactly the same. It’s such a fun experience to step into one. The brand recently set up shop in a new location – Chelsea, London and it’s just as chic as you would imagine. Both interior and design were inspired by the opening scenes in James Bond films and were brought to life in stores by Snøhetta.

A Darling Stoop

Top – Aritzia / Denim – Citizens of Humanity / Heels – Vince Camuto

Would you believe that I bought this entire outfit after seeing someone wear an almost-exact replica of it on Instagram?! Well, it’s true! It’s not a secret that I’m a huge fan of Instagram, but I love being inspired by what other people wear and seeing what I can create on my own with what I already have in my closet. In the case of this outfit, I only had the heels. This is the first time that I purchased an entire outfit solely because of this. It sounds crazy, I know, but it was just one of those things that I couldn’t stop thinking about. I love this little short-sleeved blouse. It is functional, feminine, and very chic. I like that you can tie a bow on the side or just one knot and leave the rest hanging. When I first tried on the top, it was a little bit more cropped than I had hoped. You can’t wear just any kind of denim with it. Turns out, out with all the denim I already had, wearing this top would leave my stomach completely out. That’s just not super acceptable for me these days so I went back to Aritzia (top in bag) and let my girls know that I needed a pair of very high waisted denim that would make this top work appropriate. These became my first pair of Citizens and it. was. pricey. Because of that, I now make sure to wear these at least once a week and I’m going to take care of these for basically the rest of my life.

The “Metallic” Pack

Don’t these just remind you of scales? When I was kid, I dreamed of being a mermaid just like Ariel. In in my college years when Veronica and I discovered a blanket and a sleeping bag that had a mermaid’s tail at the end of it, we knew I probably had to have it. But, were any of those items going to be as functional as a pair of sneaks? Like yes, but I’m trying to not make it to hard on myself to just express that I want these more. These Air Max 1 Ultra 2.0 sneakers in “metallic” are stunners! My favorite is the silver (above) but it also comes in black and Anaconda Green.

These will be available for purchase online at Nike’s website and in various retailers very soon!

Museum of Ice Cream’s 4th City

After New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco, what city could possibly be next? Well, I secretly hoped Seattle because nothing ever comes to Seattle, but it is actually going to be Miami! Did anyone see that coming? While I’ve never been, I have no doubts at all that the creators won’t turn their new location into something amazing. I’m thinking lots of bright and tropical colors for their themed rooms and a whole lot of flair. Even though they announced it this week, the museum will actually open in just a few weeks in time for the holiday season. It will officially open on December 13th with tickets becoming available November 17th at 11:00 AM EST. A limited number of tickets will be on sale November 14th though so if I were you, I’d set your calendars for that and make the 17th your back up date.

By the way, we totally went to the Museum of Ice Cream in San Francisco too, but just haven’t gotten around to posting it yet!
