Yesterday Style.com posted a sneak peek of designer Antonio Marras’ journal filled with sketches and drawings and inspiration. I’m 1,000 percent obsessed and cannot stop staring and thinking about it. I want to be a part of his world. I want to be his friend. You can see more here.
It seems that every time spring rolls around I’m in search of a good espadrille. A couple of years ago I fell in love with a pointed toe lace up version by Castañer, the Spanish brand that was born in 1927 by Luis Castañer. I still get a lot of mileage out of them, but the past few weeks I’ve been rotating between those and a pair of Robert Clergerie raffia wedges. What I love about both is how casual they are but how chic they can make dresses and shorts look. While I was browsing the Castañer website today I nearly lost my mind when I saw the Celia wrap around espadrille, pictured first. They have officially made it to my wish list.
I’d be lying if I said that I’ve watched this trailer only once. I’d also be lying if I said that I wouldn’t watch it again, because the truth is that I’ll probably watch it at least three more times until it finally comes out at the end of May. I am a huge Richard Linklater fan, and Before Sunrise and Before Sunset are two of my all time favorite films. So naturally, I’m freaking out about Linklater’s end to the series, Before Midnight, with Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy – the hopelessly romantic characters whom the series was written for. In Before Sunset, the ending (best ever!) left me wondering for days whether or not they became a couple, and in the trailer for Before Midnight it’s clear that they did. What I’m really interested in now is how Linklater will tell their story as a couple, because obviously it can’t be all hearts and stars, right? We’ll see!
A few weeks ago my girls and I headed to San Luis Obispo for a cozy weekend getaway. To say it was relaxing and much needed is an understatement, and I felt so grateful to be surrounded by nature and to be able to experience the magic of the central coast with my nearest and dearest. We stayed at a beautiful house, Casitas Las Brisas, in Arroyo Grande with what had to be the best view in the entire central coast, soaked up some sun, drank champagne cocktails and read magazines, did yoga outdoors, went to the farmers’ market, went wine tasting, and watched old school Diane Lane and Brigitte Bardot movies. We took it all in and left feeling rejuvenated, inspired, and full of love. These lady getaways are a must.
