Lots of exciting changes are happening for me right now! I spent the weekend switching my site over to its new home, hosted on Squarespace. So from now on I’ll be blogging at www.dreamsandjeans.com! I hope you’ll all follow me over there!

+ an apartment tour with Jenny Kang, fashion editor at AOL/Huffington Post
+ a new favorite blog, Destined to Design
+ shameless self-promotion: one of my projects was featured on designworklife (thanks again Courtney!)
+ if you haven’t started watching Millon Dollar Decorators – you must – and you also should check out Kelly’s weekly post about it – so hilarious and spot on!
It’s rare that I come home from running errands without picking up a new polish, but lately I haven’t added any to my
army collection. Here are some shades I’ve got my eye on for the summer…
Essie Lilaclism / Butter London Lady Muck / Essie Absolutely Shore
I saw these great abstract works from Sally King Benedict and fell in love with her color palettes! They’re perfect for summer, so I picked some fun summer pieces from Madewell that coordinate with the palette.
Silk Intermission Top / Coral Cove Suede Shorts / The Crosswalk Sandal / Perfect Racerback Tank / Soft Silk Boyshirt / Morning Dew Bracelet
I recently got back from a family vacation on Long Beach Island in New Jersey. It was full of sunshine and lots of relaxing!
I can’t stop looking at Emma Reddington’s home, which was recently featured on Design*Sponge. It’s light and airy, even in the rooms with darker walls. I love the combination of natural materials juxtaposed with modern furniture designs like the white Bertoia chairs. I want to move right in!

Finish my last weaving project [a Navajo-inspired rug]
Start playing around with watercolors – something I’ve been dying to do for a long time
Spend some time outside!
