STYLE / 112

my style’s been changing quite a bit lately. i used to love wearing bright vintage dresses (and still do on special occasions) but i’ve been really transitioning to more neutrals lately. black and white with pattern has especially been my jam. this is an outfit i would wear day-to-day…and a cool flower collar that made me.

i think this graphic  is supremely awesome. those black pixie pants are stretchy and from j.crew. and let me say, they are a life saver! dress em up or down, eat a big meal and they still fit, and wear them pretty much everyday. that’s my relationship with them. (find )

the black sneakers are  (did you enter the giveaway?)

well, happy friday! i’m currently on my way to my hometown of chicago to teach and bracing myself for the frigid weather when i get off the plane. LA has been so sunny, it feels almost like summer! which freaks me out because someone told me once that means an earthquake is coming and my irrational fears start spinning. anyways, i digress…let’s just look at this happy photo and forget i even brought that up. ha.

oh! and just a note in case you entered the awesome 6 day free trip to mexico here, make sure you do all of the steps required for entry or else we can’t count it! i’m seeing lots of s, but make sure you leave a comment too! thanks and good luck.

i had a really good time going through a bunch of blog photos on my laptop yesterday. i might have even teared up. while wearing . i’ve been trying to take a couple extra days off this week (since spending time with family is cool and all, but i wouldn’t necessarily call it relaxing. in my case at least.) here’s a look at some of my favorite moments & posts in 2013…

my trip to stockholm (and italy with two of my best friends). seriously changed my perspective on a lot of things. and started a martini kick.

my living room got a serious makeover here.

i was able to create some beautiful posts with my best friend. this valentine’s day “single gals party” was a favorite. good bonding action and i’m always learning from jen.

i love doing the style shoots. (like this topshop 60’s shoot above) while they are more work than just shooting an outfit out on the sidewalk, they are just so fun. recreating a time period or a vibe and watching it come to life. good times. or that time i went brunette!

the backyard mixology party was so relaxing and came out just how i imagined it. and too!

. he’s always a highlight of my year. i don’t go into a lot of details about our relationship (my dude is the private type) but i really love him. like i said earlier today, freelance life for both of us has been hard. we both probably need to sleep more and spend more dinners not talking about work. but there’s nothing better than watching him working on a cool project he loves. i can’t wait for thailand. adventure awaits us. the photo above is from our trip to barcelona in march.

one of my favorite memories for SURE was the designlovefest palm springs trip. we had a girls getaway and . gosh that was the best.

speaking of girlfriend time. my birthday party this year, when natalie made us all birthday crowns, we rented a limo and went on a photo booth tour. how am i gonna top that this year!?

working with benefit cosmetics! reenacting my four dream jobs: the jazz singer, the florist, the detective and the circus performer. 

getting a for designlovefest. moving out of the space with all my guy friends wasn’t easy but i really love having a place to create, shoot, think, and spread out. (here’s photos from my last office, it was pretty tiny!) and yes, the napping tent gets used from time to time after too much travel. hiring my first full-time employee was also a big milestone for me.

it’s always a highlight to watch all of the blogshops happen. i still get a rush before the students arrive, setting everything up perfect for them.

and this was only a few weeks ago, but it was AWESOME! gift wrapping party with close friends here.

thanks for reminiscing with me! xo bri
