Anyone who knows me is quite aware that I am utterly obsessed with Free People. I absolutely love everything about this brand and their versatility throughout the seasons. I recently got this cobalt blue coverup by Free People and now it’s my must have for the beach or pool.
I’ve been coveting pretty much everything Free People has been coming out with lately, but some of my favorites are this multi-colored T-Shirt Dress (so cool and funky!) and this fun and flirty classic Lace Tunic.
As I crossed the Atlantic to the UK, a very popular British department store traveled off to the states, and straight to Nordstrom. All thanks to Olivia Kim (curator of Pop-In@Nordstrom), Liberty London is currently available at select Nordstrom stores and online. In the Flowers Of Liberty collection, you can find everything from adorable tea cozies to the daintiest floral stationary. Read more about Liberty on The Thread.
Liberty London just happens to be one of my favorite stores ever, as I’m sure it is for most Brits. Naturally, I had to visit this iconic department store during my stay in the UK.

Floral decor adds character and charm to the stores interior.
Originally famous for their prints and patterns, Liberty continues to sell their gorgeous textiles.
Early afternoons are pretty hot, but in the evening as the sun starts to set, it’s the perfect temperature. Jeans and a T-shirt are all I need.
Ripped jeans can often look too casual, but when paired with a clean-cut white T-shirt, a laid-back outfit can look very put together. Keeping to two colors helps to achieve the coordinated look I was going for.
Shout-out to Will Nielsen for always being my fav camera man.
This past week my family and I traveled from LA to the UK. Most of my relatives live in England, so my family and I try to go there each summer. It’s been two years since my last visit, so I’m crazy excited for this summer holiday.
Our first stop was a city in southwest England called Bath. Bath is definitely one of the most beautiful places I’ve visited. It’s a quaint town known for its Roman history and breathtaking natural beauty. Think ancient buildings, cobblestone streets and lush greenery.
To give ya’ll a better look, here are some photos straight from Bath:
Before heading into NYC, my mom and I made a pit stop in New Jersey to visit some family. It had been about 10 years since I was last there and I forgot how green luscious it was–I was in love! Here are some pics from my short stay:
Recently, Will and I took a road trip up to Seattle to visit Clare while she was nannying and then bring her back to Portland with us. We woke up at 5:30 a.m. and were on the road by 7. It’s about a three-hour drive, depending on traffic, so we arrived around 10 a.m. We didn’t leave Seattle until 11 that night because we were just enjoying the city and each other’s company. To be comfy for the road trip but still look cute on our city adventures I went with a babydoll style dress with a bralette for comfort and some suede lace-up booties.
We hadn’t eaten, so our first mission was to find a place for breakfast and in the process we discovered this cute alley.
Will said the Seattle Public Library had really cool architecture, and he wasn’t lying.
