objects to inspire the day

DEAREST will be a series of stories where I gather my favorite items of the moment, shoot them flatlay-style and share with you why I love them and where you can get them. This will be a roundup of sorts! I'm excited to do these because I see this form of storytelling as a slumber party with a show-and-tell. Something I'd do with my sisters and besties! If you feel inspired to post your own "DEAREST" story, please do, and tag me so I can see it!

Today's inspiration was a mix of organic texture, neutral tones, a pop of print and fresh fragrance.

I love mixing like-materials and keeping them in the same tone family. The leathers in this outfit are all warm, but a variety of colors and finishes.

Rich browns, creams and beiges are the perfect backdrop for a fun print or a pop of color.

Spicy, smooth and earthy are my favorite fragrance notes. When I find a scent I love, it sticks. I've recently adopted incense to fill the apartment with the smokey, woodsy aroma of campfires, and I've been in love with Tocca's smooth, fresh and spicy "Brigitte" perfume.

An intricate print wakes up this entire look.

Stay tuned for the next DEAREST post, and share your own if you're feeling inspired! #dearest
