Boots for wedding?! Perfection.

My cousin Kim just came back from Japan and was wearing this gorgeous kimono made out of raw silk. I want to steal it.

Had the pleasure to have a desert get-away by Joshua Tree National Park, at Rimrock Ranch. My cousin Ngoc decided to tie the knot in this barren paradise. It was refreshing to not have phone service for 48 hours, so I had a reason to not reply to work emails on a Saturday. I’m overly obsessed with the succulent centerpieces in pinch pots that her and her husband made by hand. The wedding was absolutely magical and beautiful. Congrats to this lovely couple, so excited for your future together! XOXO

Of course, I went through at least 5 dress choices from when I received the wedding invitation in the mail to when I was packing my suitcase. I decided on this flowy floral dress that I bought online from Urban Outfitters that arrived in the mail a couple days before, a result of one of my impulse shopping sprees of “I-totally-deserve-this”/”I-haven’t-really-shopped-in-awhile.” My boots are from LF, earrings from Kate Spade, body chain from Kristin Perry and my gorgeous ring is from Androgyny Designs. Androgyny is hand-crafted in Los Angeles, and they use the most gorgeous stones and metals in their unique pieces. I got so many compliments on this geo rock ring. You have to check them out!

One of my most prized possessions is my clutch. My grandma passed away a few months ago, and when I headed out to Denver for her Irish wake I stole this pretty number out of her closet (don’t tell my other cousins). I wish I could say this was some vintage Valentino, but it is just some hand-beaded adornment that says made in China. Everything she left in the purse I still keep in there: her red comb, pack of tissues and a piece of scratch paper with phone numbers written on it. I miss her so much, and having this treasure always reminds me of her.
