STYLED / 06

styled | designlovefest

i’m headed to San Francisco this weekend which is supposed to be in the high 50’s low 60’s so i have transitional jackets on my mind. a coat or jacket that gets you through the transition between winter and spring when you don’t want to wear your heavy coat but it’s too chilly to go without the extra layer. below are a few of my current favorites, a mixture of colors and textures. for transition jackets, i like either a punch of color or a soft grey, that way they can be worn into spring without the wintery feeling that a navy or black jacket brings along. also, for the record i love fancy coats with jeans. hope you’re enjoying the warmer temps and longer days! – joanie

–  ($100) – i love this shade of pink. it’s a step up from blush but not all the way to bubble gum. so pretty!
–  ($100) – very chic!
–  ($62) – a great layering piece and takes your every day jean look up a level. feels like an ideal traveling piece.
– ($130) – the cuffed sleeve, deep purple color and side slits makes this jacket a great closet addition. the color would act as a neutral and could be paired with almost anything and the style of the coat is laid back and not too fussy which is great.
– ($240) – soft plaid print and very unstructured = a more sophisticated version of a zip up sweatshirt.
– ($138) –  one of the best jean jackets i’ve seen in awhile. the cut, the wash, the buttons, it’s all good.
– ($190) – yellow can be a tricky color but if you’re open to it i think this coat is very cool and would be such a fun spring piece.
– ($130) – a wool free jacket for those who can’t do wool. and the color is called nude pink which might make you feel like a ballerina.
–   ($250) – i always got to throw in a cool girl piece. this one does the trick!

WINE COUNTRY!

napa travel | designlovefest

joanie and i just returned from an amazing weekend in the napa wine country. it was my first time ever being there and i can’t wait to go back. there is SO much to see and do. it feels like we barely scratched the surface. all of the food and wine we had was amazing and everything was so green and lush because of all of the recent rain. we stayed at the and it couldn’t have been more relaxing. it’s perfectly located between saint helena and yountville which was crucial as we didn’t have much time and wanted to cover a lot of ground.

the service was amazing and we had dinner at their michelin-star restaurant and it was honestly one of the best meals i’ve ever had. the views are beautiful and the whole atmosphere at the resort is relaxing, neutral colors, fire place in our room, huge bathtub, and tons of fun amenities like free mini bar snacks!

HONEY AND LIME SALMON BOWLS

DSC_9388

bri and i just returned from a very extravagant weekend in napa so a healthy lunch was in order. ivan dreamed up this little combo and it was so delicious. the quality of your salmon does matter, we got ours from whole foods, center cut filets and it was about $18 for three servings of sustainable raised farmed salmon. you could also spring for the wild caught salmon if it’s in your budget. also, ivan toasts his rice before cooking it which is something i’ll be doing from now on, it really brings out the flavor. bri and i are going to dinner at the newly opened tonight. they are doing an 8 course tasting menu with wine and cocktail pairings. super excited to try it out, it’s owned by the cutest husband wife duo and it’s supposed to be amazing! -joanie

i definitely gotta pinch myself on this one, guys! i’ve been waiting SO long for these target products to be released, and i’m so happy the week is finally here when i can talk about it! this travel line was a total dream for me to be a part of, because travel is something that feels very close to my heart. i really feel the most inspired when i’m somewhere new. after the line of plates and cups we did in target last year, they approached me about doing a line of. i didn’t think twice about it…

i wanted to create a line that felt chic but also affordable. my favorites are the blush toned items with the black and white pattern accents. i envisioned cool details in the line like gold zippers and matching add-on tassels. i wanted it to feel fun to carry, but also very functional.
