this week in pins / summertime

Summer Pins / Design Me Daily Blog

Living in San Francisco definitely has its perks—mountains and wilderness for days, food trucks on every street, street fairs every weekend—but in the summer, it doesn’t feel quite like summer. So, my Pinterest boards have been piling up with summertime photos—shorts, tanks, camping, beaches, palm trees, anything I can get my hands on! At least I can live vicariously through the rest of you :)

Emma Stone nailed it last night.

I don’t know if you guys paid any attention to the Met Ball red carpet last night, but it was phenomenal. It is definitely worth checking out today if you missed it.

One dress that I cannot get off of my mind is Emma Stone’s Thakoon two-piece, pink dress—it’s simple, young, innocent and sexy. I’m OBSESSED. She looked amazing from head-to-toe, front-to-back.

Time for spring!

Spring! / via Design Me Daily blog

Apparently, this weekend was unofficially the first day of Spring. All over Instagram, people traveled to their neighborhood nursery (myself included!) to snatch up some new greens for their homes. I’ll take that as proof that Spring has sprung :)

Finding the right indoor plant is tricky. You need to assess what quality of light your home offers and what size plant you’re able to accommodate. And of course you need to choose the one that fits your aesthetic best! We came away with a Norfolk pine to fill our large 13″ pot—which originally had a gorgeous coconut tree planted in it. Unfortunately, we didn’t do our research before we purchased the coconut and suffice it to say, coconuts are not ideal for San Francisco or indoors. We also nabbed a couple of small succulents and a cactus to add to our collection. All in all, I’d say we’re starting spring off right!
