best of: friday finds. / sfgirlbybay

this week i’m feeling all the california vibes, mostly inspired by this sunny orange door at madre — a very cute kids’ shop. also, the sun finally came out here in socal which i have sorely missed this month. we need the rain so i’m not really complaining, but i do prefer walking the dog under a warm, sunny sky. let’s hope for sunshine this sunday, too — it is the oscars, after all and we don’t want those starlets dripping in anything but diamonds, dahling. have a great weekend all, xo victoria

  1. would you have the guts to paint your front door bright orange? it looks so fresh and cheerful!
  2. i love the pop of orange via this vintage portrait painting featured on great a design*sponge home tour.
  3. don’t you sometimes wish we still dressed so glamorously? she looks like she just landed in california via nyc.
  4. as a native of the sunshine state, i’m very tempted to grab one of these California Oversized sweatshirts.
  5. super inspired by these bright and cheerful interiors photographed by sofi sykfont.
  6. i really love the fresh look of white beadboard and white printed paneling like this.
  7. this is one of the cutest front porch makeovers i’ve ever seen — adore the orange and blue color combo!

best of: wear this there: the siren hotel. / sfgirlbybay

today we’re throwing some love towards detroit, michigan and visiting the beautiful new the siren hotel. designed by Detroit architect Robert Finn in 1926, the siren hotel revitalizes downtown’s historic Wurlitzer building and has become one of detroit’s trendiest spots to stay the night. voted the second best city to visit in 2018 by lonely planet, detroit is making a much-deserved comeback and is the spot to be seen. we suggest visiting the hotel’s candy bar wearing a very feminine, but motor-city-worthy outfit including your best rocker tee, Bomber Jacket, a sassy pair of high-heeled boots and a cool crossbody bag. when you finally cozy up for the night in one of their beautiful guest rooms settle in with Jeffrey Eugenides’ Middlesex which chronicles three generations of a Greek-American family who travel from a tiny village overlooking Mount Olympus to Prohibition-era Detroit. enjoy your detroit stay!

xo, victoria

best of: got some time for the blues? / sfgirlbybay

i’m back with another case of the blues, just for you. i can’t stop, won’t stop because i’ve clearly fallen back in love with blue. there was a while there where i thought of it only as a very traditional color, perhaps even preppy but after my visit to europe, i see it’s got all kinds of personalities — from super sophisticated navy to bright colbalt farmhouse french and an awful of fun in-between. whether you slather an entire wall in some dreamy shade of blue, or simply pull up a comfy indigo-colored chair, i think you’ll see blues get along quite well with an abundance of other colors, no matter what the hue of blue.
