i’ve long been craving a return to the city of lights, so today we’re off to beautiful, beloved paris. we’re headed to a staple of the city since before world war II, and one of those classic french eateries, brasserie la lorraine. if it’s seafood you adore, you’ve hit the right bistro — think seafood towers and fresh oysters all in a Très Chic setting. there’s a lot going on with this eclectic decor so we’re going to pick up on its subtler notes and dress in soft rouge and pastel pinks. this ensemble takes a bit of vision to get where my imagination’s going, but trust me, it’s gonna be fab. we’re starting with a flowy and very feminine tutu skirt, worn over black leggings and paired with some lace-up boots (i like the juxtaposition of little toughness with my flirty skirts). on top of that, a perfectly paisley bow blouse with a wee cropped vest and cozy faux fur coat. don’t forget this killer headwrap and scarf all-in-one — so gorgeous and warm! before you head out for the evening, might i suggest reading a few pages from The Paris Library by Janet Skeslien Charles. Based on the true World War II story of the heroic librarians at the American Library in Paris, this is an unforgettable story of romance, friendship, family, and the power of literature to bring us all together and the human connections we find within. bon voyage and bon appetit!

color story: living for green interiors and accessories / sfgirlbybay

good morning y’all! i’m trying to keep things nice and upbeat today, with lots of light-filled rooms and a good, healthy dose of green. both natural, living elements, and green as an accent color. i especially love pairing green and white together for a really uplifting mood maker. and right about now, after all these literal years of self-quarantining and now with this new wave of omicron, boy i could really use a lift. i’m so grateful i still have my health, but gosh i know so many friends and family who are sick right now and it can’t help but make me worry for all of us. i’m not sure why, but i often feel like green, especially green in our natural,  living world is a really uplifting color and it would be difficult to find myself in a bad mood in any of these bright, fresh spaces. let’s keep it healthy and bring in some green, shall we?
